Join us for our Fifteenth Annual Derby Party!
Saturday, May 5th, 4:00PM — Greenwood Park
What started as a small gathering in our apartment ten years ago has grown into a legendary event for over 600 of our friends. Whether you’re in it for the ponies, the prizes, the spectacle of the hats, or the swagger of julep drinkers in seersucker suits, we guarantee a good time and mint juleps for all!
Schedule of Events
The doors (and bar!) will open at 4:00PM. Arrive in time for live music, food, and fun before the 144th Run for the Roses. Before the race begins, enjoy tunes from The Bluegrass Book Club, promenade in our parade of hats, and get down with Dandy Wellington and His Band. Make a bet and cheer on your favorite horse before hitting the dance floor once again. The bar becomes a cash bar at 8:00PM, but you should certainly stick around for more revelry.
We are pleased to return to Greenwood Park. We’ll convert this 13,000 square foot South Slope beer garden into a bourbon garden! Bocce ball courts will become a dedicated corn toss area, and we’ll still have room for a stage, dance floor, hat-making station, and areas that can only be defined once mint juleps are in our system.
