OK. The Kentucky Derby is this Saturday. We’ve got a few options for watching the race.
First, the Public House near Logan Square/Franklin Institute is throwing a Kentucky Derby party at 2pm with horse race pie, hot brown sandwiches and mint juleps. Ladies with the most outrageous derby hats win a prize.
Also, we expect a number of sports and sports-oriented bars will be showing the Derby. Recommended picks: O’Neal’s, Chickie’s & Pete’s Cafe, Buffalo Billiards and Moriarty’s. But the usual caveats apply, especially since this Saturday is both Cinco de Mayo and the De La Hoya-Merriweather fight. In other words: Call first.
