Time to dust off your derby hat – Meals on Wheels Derby Day is a mere 2 weeks away! This annual charitable event, put on by the Council on Aging at Chateau St. Jean Winery in Kenwood, includes a viewing of the Kentucky Derby, live-streamed on a large screen, with all the authentic accompaniments: the mint juleps, the big hats, the sundresses, the seersucker suits, the sparkling jewelry – even the Southern spirit.
Attend the Meals on Wheels event to support a good cause, or throw your own backyard party – we’ve lined up four essential items for a decadent Derby Day in the gallery above.
