Gentlemen and gentlewomen, start your, er, horses. And they’re off…well, off to Derby Day at Plan B Burger Bar in Stamford from 3-7 on May 4. Yup yup! You’ll be able to watch the Kentucky Derby at Plan B and get to comment on all the cool horse names such as Charming Kitten, Itsmyluckyday, Fear the Kitten, Frac Daddy, and the number one contender Black Onyx.
But, does anyone really watch the races? Everybody knows what it’s really about:
Looking spiffy, wearing huge hats that strangely resemble ufos, dressing like a princess (or prince), and drinking lots of bourbon. And, you’ll be happy to know that at Plan B you’ll be rewarded for your crazy hat and your daper and dressiness with contests. There’s even going to be a raffle if you can’t find an ugly hat. But, perhaps one of the sweetest things is that Plan B is giving back to The American Cancer Society. You’ll be drinking bourbon anyway, so just make sure to order Four Roses straight, on the rocks, or in their mixed drinks such as their Four Roses Mint Julep.
When you’re there, definitely try their fried pickles and peppers to start things off. We love those things. And, definitely try a burger. These are burgers unlike any you’ve probably had before because they are loosely packed. Check out our review to see what we thought.
So, let us know: which horse are you betting on, what hat will you be wearing, and what will be your bourbon drink of choice?
And, we’d also really like to thank one of our readers, Lyndsey, for telling us about this event. Thanks so much… and May the fourth be with you!
