Who: Exuberant fans of the Kentucky Derby and big hats looking to celebrate the big race surrounded by fellow horseracing aficionados.
What: Housed in the heart of Scottsdale’s entertainment district, Bevvy (4420 N. Saddlebag Trail, 480-525-9300, www.bevvyaz.com) is the Valley’s newest gastro-pub, serving up amazing bar food in a sexy, stylish and downright cheeky environment. Even better, the Bevvy is hosting a blowout Kentucky Derby party on Saturday, May 2, 2015. Get in on all the action with onsite off-track-betting, as well as watch (and hear) the race on the 30-plus flat-screen TVs. But that’s just the start of all the Derby-themed festivities, including contests for “Best Hat,” “Biggest Hat,” “Best Dressed” (male & female) and “Celebrity Look-Alikes,” with winners receiving complimentary Champagne, gift cards and more. Speaking of outrageous outfits, famously Bevvy’s sexy wait staff will also be dressed to the nines, decked out from head to toe in traditional Kentucky Derby garb, including huge hats, Loudmouth pants and pastel colors. Meanwhile, Bevvy itself will be draped with racing silks, or elaborate, colorful decorative fabrics, while the unofficial Kentucky Derby theme song, “My Old Kentucky Home” will play throughout the day. (Sing-alongs are always welcome).
Last but not least, Bevvy will be serving up a special Derby-themed brunch/lunch menu, as well as hand out complimentary Champagne and mint juleps to early birds (doors open at 11 am), as well as additional drink specials offered throughout the day. Stay tuned for further details as Bevvy counts down the days until the 2015 Kentucky Derby.
When: Saturday, May 2, 2015 (Doors open at 11 a.m.)
