The Fastest Two Minutes in Sports …..

It’s that time of year again.  Time for pomp and pageantry, mint juleps, big – BIG – hats, seersucker and all the other whatnot that goes into the “First Saturday in May.”  Of course, it’s all over in two minutes which begs the question what are you to do for the hours leading up? That’s easy….put your best foot forward, imbibe in some fine Kentucky Bourbon and do it all in colorful style.

If you’re heading up to Louisville this weekend, we’d like to present some inspiration for your race day wear.

And if you’re staying here in town we’d like to offer some direction on making mint juleps…it’s a wonderful cocktail.  So good, in fact, that it should not be limited to just the First Saturday in May.
