Break out your seersucker suit and dust off your best fascinator – you’ve got a DERBY PARTY to attend! Join us in the Beer Garden on Saturday, May 7th to celebrate “The Most Exciting Two Minutes In Sports” and all things Kentucky Derby! We’ll have pre-race coverage on the Beer Garden big screen all day long, and Razzamatazz & Jazz will be playing two sets of Dixieland Jazz on the stage leading up to the main event. Mint Juleps (and your favorite LG beers) will be flowing, and Ray Ray’s will be serving up your favorite BBQ all afternoon!
