Derby Days: Charlotte Edition

Are you in the Charlotte area? A fan of the Kentucky Derby? What about wearing oversize hats paired with your favorite bright, summery dress and seeing guys sport seersucker? If you answered yes, then join the Young Affiliates of the Mint on May 3rd to celebrate the annual running of the Kentucky Derby! There will be a live band, silent auction, hat contest for the ladies, a Dapper Dan contest for the best-dressed guy, a cash raffle, lawn games that includes cornhole, bocce and croquet, along with FREE food, beer and wine for you to enjoy and a large-screen so you can watch the actual race live. 

Doesn't that sound like a wonderful way to spend an afternoon? And it doesn't' stop there. Afterwards, head over to the Peculiar Rabbit for the after-party. Tickets include all of the above and try to purchase your tickets before April 19th so you can take part in the early bird price. Right now tickets are $30 for members of the Young Affiliates of the Mint Museum and $45 for non-members. After April 19th, tickets will be $40 for members and $55 for non-members.

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I will usually respond back to you via email (not here on the blog)...It's easier for me that way and hopefully it sparks a conversation for us! It makes me giddy that you're here and took the time to leave me a comment :)
