Happy Kentucky Derby Day (tomorrow)

Friday, May 6, 2011

Tomorrow is the Kentucky Derby! I don't know you you all, but I l.o.v.e. this day. When I lived in Portland, my friends & I went to a Derby party at a super fun bar. Everyone dressed up, they served burgoo stew & mint juleps in commemorative derby glasses & someone in our group won a bottle of whiskey, so that was passed around the table, too :) It was a super fun event & I wished I would've planned something as exciting this year! Oh well, I'm reliving that party a few years ago with my photos below:


Are you celebrating what is dubbed the greatest two minutes in sports?
If so, are you dressing up & drinking mint juleps? That's the best part :)
