Fingers crossed, we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel of Louisville’s topsy turvy weather. The sun is up, the sky is blue, and it is time to break out your most stylish southern hats and bow ties in advance for the 16th Annual Wellspring Derby Preview Party. What better excuse to get all dolled up in full-on Derby swagger and venture to Millionaires Row at Churchill Downs?
Tomorrow night from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., rock out to Appalatin, a band with Latin-infused roots that will simultaneously still give you that sweet taste of Appalachian folk. They will have you “foot-stomping” and “hip-swinging” while you wine and dine at Churchill Downs. In addition to some delightful grooving, get excited about the Unlimited Chef’s Table, Dessert Bar, and Cocktail Bar. These are a few of my favorite things, and are some of the finer things in life. There is nothing quite like toasting to a gorgeous Louisville spring day with dessert in one hand, a drink in other, all while donning some dashing attire. Perhaps even test out potential Derby ensembles before the big day.
Intrigued about some epic live and silent auction prizes while mingling on Millionaires Row? There are all sorts of potential dreams that could come true if you attend. Beatle-maniacs could walk away with a Paul McCartney autographed Fender guitar. Invite your father who still remembers when the Beatles first appeared on “The Ed Sullivan show” 50 years ago. Those with wanderlust will be more than interested in possibilities of vacations to France and Mexico. Instagram-worthy pictures are just waiting to be taken to capture all the moments. Foodies could win a gourmet dinner for eight in your home by Chef Jarfi of Jarfi's Bistro on Bardstown Road. And of course, how could you pass up the prospect of a box for six at the Kentucky Derby?
