it’s derby day, baby. my second favorite holiday (to beaujolais day, of course) and such a beautiful culture of celebration. bourbon, hats, dancing, pastels, betting, horses. jockeys. all of the best things in life. i’ve outlined everything you need to know, from a tried-and-true julep recipe AND all the words to my old kentucky home, a few of my theories about betting, and of course, all of the best events in the borough.
