It’s safe to say that most people rarely think about horse racing, until the Kentucky Derby rolls around. Just like St. Patrick’s Day and Cinco de Mayo, the Derby is more about what you wear and what you drink than what you’re celebrating. Old Town Whiskey embraces that fact. And, as you probably won't venture to the sweltering south, you can slurp a few mint juleps near Old Town Scottsdale for the next best thing during the hotel bar's Kentucky Derby Dandy Party.
Don't dare skimp on the dandy duds, particularly pastels, pumps, and pomp. Think gallivanting à la Jay Gatsby. Watch the races, bet on horses, and have a gander at the lovely cabaret ladies in the Saguaro Hotel.
