It’s 2020, and everything is different.

We could think of a few other choice words, but we'll stick with different.

The Saratoga Special is publishing this summer, albeit online only, twice a week and with a much smaller staff. But here we are.

We are again offering membership in our Readers Club for $35. Members receive a Readers Club sticker and your choice of a hat or buff/neck gaiter, plus early email notice of every edition and whatever else we can dream up.

This is our 20th season and the plans called for happy hours, a Best Of The Special book and more. Of course, that’s all on hold – temporarily. We’ll keep you posted.

The idea is to expand on an already vibrant community of readers. The future can mean special content, events and discounts and other benefits. We’d love to have you involved, though it’s totally optional. The Special is free to read, no matter what.
