Kentucky Derby Day 2012 - Bourbon Steak, Aventura, FL!!!
Race fans and bourbon fans take heed! The 138th running of the Kentucky Derby is this Saturday, May 5th! This year we will be heading back to Bourbon Steak in Aventura, FL for another fantastic Derby Day experience. Last year was an awesome time. The ladies came dressed to impress in big hats, and the fellas enjoyed the $5 mint julep specials while hoping their horse came in for a nice payday. Blind Tastes will be giving away more prizes this year! Once again, we will be randomly handing out numbers for the field of horses numbered 1 through 20 for the first 20 attendees to show up. The holder of the number with the winning horse will win a prize! We'll also have a prize for best hat that will be determined by a number of factors so complex they can't be divulged in advance!
The kind folks at Bourbon Steak will once again be opening up at 5pm and offering $5 Mint Juleps! Derby Day attendees can also take advantage of May being National Hamburger Month by wolfing down one of Chef Gabe Fenton's BBQ BLT Burgers. Betting, Bourbon, and Burgers is the trifecta lock of the century!!! It doesn't get better than that! Wait, maybe it does!! Bourbon Steak is also holding a horse betting workshop with Ron Nicoletti, handicapper for Gulfstream Park, this Friday! Stop in and learn the ins and outs of the Exacta, Trifecta, and Superfecta bets to make your Derby Day experience even more enjoyable*!
Stay tuned to Blind Tastes for more Derby Day fun facts and trivia leading up to the big race on Saturday and be sure to be there LIVE at Bourbon Steak this Saturday to watch the race!
