Derby, Drinks, and a gala night with parties at The Mint Jubilee and Playboy with friends, bands and my wife. No way of topping my night before The Kentucky Derby... at least until next year.
There's Derby parties, then there are Derby parties! You may lose a wager at the track this year on Kentucky Oaks Day, but are guaranteed a great time this year at The Mint Jubilee. It's not cheap, but a wager is easier to stomach when you know why you lost and this way you walk away well-fed. After all, who can trust a horse, of course, of course. And horses are notoriously bad chefs.
Derby Week is marked by an impressive slate of extremely festive social events ranging from campouts like the Hillbilly Infield, to the most celebrated party of them all, the Barnstable Brown Gala.
