How to throw a Derby party.

  • Serve Hot Browns, fried chicken and benetictine spread, bacon and spinich salad, cucumber-tomato pasta salad, strawberries, Mint Juleps and sweet tea
  • There are fun ways to bet on the races without actually betting, like drawing the winner from a hat, everyone draws a horse and you pay $1 per draw. Winner takes all.  For even more fun, add a separate hat to guess the horse that comes in last!
  • Check out Liquor Barn and Party City for cute plates and napkins with a Derby theme.
