” There is something about the outside of the horse that is good for the inside of a man. “- Winston Churchill
Kentucky Derby that is.
Who wants to celebrate? Milwaukee has some great parties if you’re looking to get down and “Derby.” All events have prizes for best Derby attire, so grab your best bow-tie or your over-sized giant flower/bow hat and sit your butt on a bar stool Saturday, May 2nd. The first race starts at 5:24pm, but from what I’ve seen this could be an all day event! I couldn’t choose one so I have complied some of my favorites in no particular order:
The Iron Horse is hosting their annual Derby party “Talk Derby to Me”.
$35.00 all you can drink Mint Juleps from 3:00-6:30 pm
Photo op with a horse and live music
Bourbon Flights and Mint Juleps
Derby style food such as Crab cakes, Hot Brown, and Burgoo Stew
8th Annual Derby Day Party
