Calendar of Events
This year we have quite an event for you. Courtesy of our sponsor Herradura, we will be serving $5 Margaritas, $5 Herradura Silver shots and $4 Modello Especial cans. Julio Arenas (voted best street taco in LA) will be selling his street tacos on the patio for $1.50 a piece (Chicken, Carne Asada, Pastor and Chorizo). Because Cinco De Mayo is such a celebrated holiday the bar will be open from noon until close. Come on in and celebrate the 5th of May with us!
This May for the Derby, Cole's Red Car Bar is hosting a Louisville family style Derby Party. Who knows better how to host this event then Brent Falco the girl who was born and raised in Louisville, Ky- who also happens to be the Bar Manager of Cole's. And what is this family style party??? Here's how it works. You show up and have one of Brent's mom's home-style mint juleps & Derby Pie, draw one of the Derby horses names from a bartender's hat, cheer on the horse you drew as the race is running, and if your horse comes in 4th, 3rd, 2nd, or 1st you win a prize. Of course the prizes, like the $ at the track, get higher in value depending on the place of your horse. For those who don't win? Well, like the track we only have more cocktails and food for you to drown your sorrow. If you can't go to the track, we hope you join us for as close as you can get to Louisville hospitality.

This coming May 5th, Kentucky Derby Day, Noon to 4pm, we will be hosting a viewing party with Hollis Bulleit from Bulleit Bourbon.
We will be asking a 20$ donation at the door to benefit Speedrack, an organization that supports Breast Cancer Research and helps women in the bar business who have been afflicted with the disease. Check out their website:
Hollis will be MC, Bulleit Mint Juleps and Bulleit Rye Old-Fashioneds will be flowing, BBQ will be served, the Kentucky Derby will be on the Big Screen, and Prizes will be awarded for the Best Hat and Best Bow-Tie/Seersucker Suit Combo.
The first 100 people through the door will receive a Bulleit glass, so grab some friends, get dressed-up, and come celebrate for a great cause! The lovely ladies of LUPEC LA (Ladies United for the Preservation of Classic Cocktails) will be in attendance, supporting, so don't slack on the duds.

A good friend of mine called me and said, "Dude, you have to check out this guy who raps in a bear suit!". So, like a good friend I listened to "the guy in a bear suit." And I have to say, the dude has rhymes! He calls himself Animal Raps. And he raps about animals! Duh! Check out Animal Raps every Saturday at Casey's with a special guest each week. No Cover. Just rhymes, and a bear suit.
