Time For The Derby!

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

As you may (or may not) know, this weekend is the Kentucky Derby.  But you don’t have to hightail it to Churchill Downs to get in on the fun. Just grab yourself a fancy hat (for the ladies) and a seersucker suit (for the gents) and throw yourself a soiree.

And, although not everyone enjoys placing a bet, if you do, you can go to the official Kentucky Derby site and bet online.

Everyone knows you cannot celebrate Derby Day without a proper mint julep and appropriate nibbles. Let me tell you how to make your party authentic.
