The Kentucky Derby @ Cole’s Red Car Bar (5/5/12, Noon – 5pm)

May 1st, 2012 — 5:49pm

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.

Brent Falco, Cole’s RCB, Bar Manager

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.
