Run for The Roses

The race is on and you don't have to be in Louisville to experience the Derby first hand.  Throw your own party!  Below are a few ideas for the perfect afternoon and what is a better excuse to dress preppy, wear big hats, drink Bourbon and gamble than the Kentucky Derby

The Drink of the Day

As for the gambling portion of the day I will leave that to the professionals, however my favorite part is hearing the fun names of the horses.  A few of my favorite this year are Pants on FireDance City, Decisive Moment. My favorite name of all is Uncle Mo, not only because he is ranked #1 but because that is the nickname given to my dad by my 17 little cousins. How Perfect!
