Starting at 2 p.m., enjoy Tap 42's inaugural Derby Day with $5 Wild Turkey mint juleps.
From 4 until the 6:30 p.m. race, celebrate the Derby with happy-hour pricing (50 percent off drinks at the bar) and prize giveaways throughout the day.
The derby is known for its hat-wearing ladies, so break out your finest
frockery for a chance to win some great prizes, including an iPad 2 and
Wild Turkey bottles autographed by the bourbon's master distiller, Jimmy Russell.
Not a hat wearer? Dress as a jockey or, better yet, come in that horse costume that's just sitting in your attic (you always wanted to be a horse's ass, didn't you?). Derby attire will be judged by a panel of esteemed judges, including
Clean Plate Charlie's own Melissa McCart and Tap's Ted Inserra.
Don't forget to place
your bet on the race at Tap 42's own betting "window." Then settle down
and watch the most exciting two minutes in sports from Tap 42's
televisions. If your horse wins, you could win some great prizes.
Either way, we're betting you have a great time!
