4 Reasons We’re Excited For Derby Day At Gamlin Whiskey House
Derby day won’t go unnoticed in St. Louis if Gamlin Whiskey House has anything to say about it. Join the Central West End hot spot in celebrating the Kentucky Derby races on May 2 during their Kentucky Derby Day Party, beginning at 1pm. The best reasons to attend? Right here:
1/ Maker’s Mark mint juleps
Even if we’re not in Kentucky, we can drink like we are! Almost nothing brings Derby day to life more than the satisfying taste of bourbon mixing with mint.
2/ Derby day attire prizes
Come dressed in your derby best and you’ll be handsomely rewarded: The winners of the Best Dressed competition will not only be rewarded with all floppy hat-shaded eyes on them, but they’ll also receive a $25 Gamlin Whiskey House gift card. Men, don’t think these prizes are just for the ladies; one lucky gentleman will claim the best-dressed title as well. When you sit at a pre-reserved jockey, you can even snag a prize for more creatively decorated table.
Not only can you start a leisurely Saturday with brunch (10am-3pm) at Gamlin with a kale and white cheddar frittata or a fried tomato sandwich with bacon, but you can keep noshing all day. The jockey tables will get to share a free appetizer platter, but if you’re feeling peckish during the stress of the race, bourbon-seasoned fried chicken will do the trick.
If the action on the screen and the costumes don’t enchant you, turn your attention to the live horse race dice game. Every half hour there’s a chance to win Jim Beam swag, gift cards, food and drink.
