A Kentucky Derby party is going down at barleymash

Bummed you can’t make it to Louisville for this year’s Kentucky Derby? No worries, ya’ll! Head over to barleymash instead and have a San Diego-style Kentucky Derby viewing party.

The restaurant will be decked out in Derby-decor with multiple televisions for viewing the epic race. Dress in your Derby-best to win the title of best dressed, either in the hat or suit category, with prizes and giveaways to win all day long.

From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the restaurant will offer food and drink specials including some down-South favorites like Cup of the Burgoo, a stew made with pulled pork, braised chicken, braised short rib, black eyed peas, veggies and okra. There will also be Southern open-faced brown sandwich special, which features a decadent Texas toast topped with roasted turkey, bourbon roasted tomatoes, garlic cream and two slices of bacon melted together with a three-cheese blend. Oh, and don’t forget to sip on one or two traditional mint julep cocktails!

Live music will be provided by Drought Intolerant throughout the event.

The event is free to attend. For more information, visit or
