Not that we ever need an excuse to party, but Saturday has two reasons to raise a pint glass – Cinco de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby – so we’re gettin’ down with three fun events! The first one is pre-Cinco de Mayo bash on Thursday, in which we’ll start with drinks at Scruffy Duffies at 5:30p before boarding the Big Red Bus to go to the RoughRiders block party at Dr. Pepper Ballpark. Your ticket includes the Deep Ellum Brewing Co.-sponsored pre-party, the ride on the bus, and admission to the RoughRider block party. If you wanna grab a seat on the Bus, get your ticket here!
Then, on Saturday, we’re celebrating both Cinco de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby with Cinco de Derby parties at Addison Ice House and Saintsbury Tavern. At the Ice House, Noble Wolf Vodka will be in the house giving out samples of their grapefruit vodka, and we’ll be making mint juleps (the official cocktail of the Kentucky Derby) with Woodford Reserve – if you’re a craft cocktail aficionado, you’re gonna wanna sample one (or more than one) of these! Following the race, we’re switching horses from bourbon to tequila, with frozen margaritas made with Dulce Vida and ’ritas on the rocks made with Casa Amigos! And over in Austin Ranch, Saintsbury Tavern’s party features specials on Patrón and Dos Equis, as well as our famous taco bar, with a live performance by none other than Warren Dunlevy! Book your rides now, because Saturday’s parties are gonna be lit!
