Mellow Mushroom Hamilton Place will host the best two minutes in sports with its inaugural Kentucky Derby party filled with race watching, drink specials, and a best dressed contest. The party will be on Saturday at 5 p.

Organizers said, "Two minutes may seem like a blur, but the Kentucky Derby is a day of celebration and Mellow Mushroom will be doing it to the nines." Attendees will be sipping traditional Derby drinks at the price of $4, including Makers Mark Mint Juleps, Grey Goose Oaks Lily, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, and Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout.

 

Everyone is encouraged to dress up in their best derby hat or seer sucker suit, because the best-dressed woman, man, and child will be awarded generously for their extravagance. The most refined woman and man will receive a rose bouquet and $50 gift card, while the most dapper child will win a pizza party for 10 of their friends.

 

Guests who think they know which horse will win the race will enjoy the free-to-enter Sports Book for the opportunity to win a Mellow Mushroom prize pack.  All that is needed to enter is to place one's name in a jar of one's choosing. Everyone who correctly guesses the winning horse will be entered into a raffle with one overall winner chosen at random.
