The Run for the Juleps

By Fritz Hahn

You don't have to be a horse racing fan to love the Kentucky Derby. Parties with delicious mint juleps and "best bonnet" hat contests make the 135th annual race an event that anyone can enjoy.

If you'd like to experience the Kentucky spirit without traveling to Churchill Downs, a number of bars and restaurants are welcoming customers on Saturday with special cocktails, contests and, of course, the Fastest Two Minutes in Sports on big tvs.

Browse our full list of Kentucky Derby viewing parties to get a feel for the events, and click on the name for a longer description. (And if you're interested in handicapping the race, check out Andrew Beyer's column today in the Sports section.)
