Talk Derby To Me – Kentucky Derby Party!

May 6, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 11:00 pm

The Rustic invites Kentucky Derby fans – as well as connoisseurs of high fashion, great food and craft cocktails – to join in the race-day fun on Saturday, May 6.

Event is FREE with RSVP. 

Dress to impress in your finest Derby attire for a chance to win great prizes in four Best Dressed contests, judged by local fashion experts. The competition begins at 3:00 p.m., and the winners will be announced at 4:30 p.m. Details below:

— Best Dressed Couple: $200 in gift cards for each contestant (includes a mix of gift cards from all three Dallas-area FreeRange Concepts locations: The Rustic, Mutts Canine Cantina and Bowl & Barrel)

— Best Dressed Male: $200 in FreeRange gift cards

— Best Dressed Female: $200 in FreeRange gift cards

— Best Hat: $200 in FreeRange gift cards

Celebrity judges to be announced!

Enjoy the races with other Derby fans while you sip on the best Mint Juleps in town – Woodford Reserve Bourbon, lemon mint, & a dash of Ysabel Regina Brandy served over crushed ice – and indulge in a Kentucky Hot Brown sandwich made specifically for the party. You’ll feel like you’re in Kentucky, minus the crazy crowds and the fragrant aroma of the horse paddocks…

The Derby Day fun begins at 11 a.m., when the first undercard races begin at Churchill Downs. The party officially kicks off at 3:00 p.m. with live music by Dixieland band and Luke Nassar Trio.
