weekend vision: mint juleps + hats

What are you doing this weekend? The Kentucky Derby is happening not too far from here, so I think we should sip a mint julep while wearing our finest hats and plot how to find the $1000+ it would take for us to buy fancy pants tickets and mingle with some good old American gentry.

P.S. The Art of Manliness and tips for dressing for the Kentucky Derby

  1. That sounds delightful and also a bit intimidating! I keep thinking of Audrey Hepburn in *My Fair Lady* at the horce race (ok, so it was in England) yelling "Come on Dover! Move your bloomin' arse!"

  2. Have a fun Derby weekend! We're celebrating the Cinco here in Texas but maybe I'll throw on a hat for kicks
