Let’s go down to the races on May 1…or at least to your local pub! The Kentucky Derby will be happening this Saturday with coverage starting at 12:30 pm. While it’s widely known as the most exciting two minutes in sports”, there’s more to this historical race that makes it a whole event. 

From the refreshing taste of the classic Mint Juleps to the fantastical fashion among socialites, there’s no reason not to go all out – however, if you’re just wanting to sip a beer, we’ve got your back for that, too.

So, place your bets and get ready to get down and ‘Derby’ because we’ve got all the details on where you’ll be wanting to book your tables and watch the big race this Saturday in Wrigleyville!
