[A]re there any bars or restaurants around here doing anything special for the Kentucky Derby this weekend? I haven't really heard anything and can't find anything out there already.
The derby is this Saturday. We'll adjust Nick's question a bit to cover local places that are generally good for watching the Kentucky Derby -- because of atmosphere, drinks, the crowd, whatever.
Bonus question: mint juleps: Hollie asked on Twitter for a good place to get a mint julep. Daniel B said Hattie's or dp -- suggestions with which we concur. Dominick Purnomo responded: "We make our juleps with spearmint, Blanton's Bourbon, CRUSHED Ice & serve in silver julep cups." Sounds like a plan.
Got a suggestion for Nick and/or Hollie? Please share!
