Derby Day in the Back Bay

Oak Long Bar Facebook

And they’re off! Oak Long Bar + Kitchen is celebrating the Kentucky Derby for the fifth year running on Saturday, May 4th, starting with food and drink specials at 4:00pm to get the party galloping before the gun at 6:50pm. There’ll be two different Mint Juleps to choose from (or not) at the bar—classic and a black currant riff called the “Giddy-Up”—along with other race-themed cocktails, a Hot Fried Chicken Sandwich, and a Single Patty Cheeseburger. Don’t forget to get gussied up: there will be prizes awarded for Best Hat, Best Tie, and Best Dressed, and all attendees can enter to win Oak Bar’s social media giveaway to win a grand Louisville experience including lodging at the 21c Museum Hotel and a Maker’s Mark Distillery tour (just upload a photo of your specialty cocktail to Instagram and tag @oaklbk).
