We celebrate the Kentucky Derby every year. Unfortunately, the derby has been postponed until September :( . However, that does not mean we are not having fun today. NBC will be airing the 2015 Kentucky Derby followed by a virtual race of triple crown winners. My wife and I will be dressed up, she will have her fancy hat, and we will make mint juleps and enjoy the virtual Kentucky Derby! I got Secretariat by a virtual nose!! Anyone else playing around today?

Yesterday I went online, made my donation for the cause and made my pick.

We are doing wings today, and if you have seen the hot sauce thread, you know I have a ton of new hot sauces to try! We are just getting set up....

Mint juleps are alot of work to do them right...

Yeah, plus we really only get one day of practice each year! I only drink them on derby day. I'll post pics here and in the cocktail thread once we start

I lost $25 on the virtual derby and $100 on the AR derby. Just practicing for when I will lose a lot of money for the KY derby in Sept. lol

I missed the derby yesterday. It was sunny and 80 degrees. Mother Nature was just mocking us Kentuckians.
