Hold on to your hats and get ready for “The Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports” for this year’s Kentucky Derby. If you can’t make it to Churchill Downs this year, a number of Chicago bars are offering specials and race events will be showcased. American Junkie (15 W. Illinois, 312.239.0995) is offering hand–crafted Mint Juleps for $8 and a special limited Derby menu including Pork Belly Sliders and a number of flatbreads on which to snack. Guests are invited to come dressed in their derby best for the Kentucky Derby Best Dressed Male and Female. Another Kentucky classic to try is an Old Fashioned at The Glunz Tavern (1202 N. Wells, 312.642.3000). This signature drink features bourbon whiskey, Angostura Bitters, a sugar cube, maraschino cherry and an orange slice served on the rocks. Legend says it was first named in Louisville, Kentucky, so it’s relevant to Derby festivities.
