Cinco de Derby Crawl: The Run for the Roses meets the Fifth of May!

This Saturday, May 5th marks the 144th annual Kentucky Derby horse race at Churchill Downs and the 156th anniversary of Mexico’s victory over Napoleon III at the Battle of Puebla. With the Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo falling on the same day, downtown Allentown invites you to partake in the festivities by enjoying some food and drinks at the Cinco de Derby Crawl!

Blend these two cultures in celebration at one of five participating restaurants from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. and enjoy a traditional derby style mint julep made with Woodstone reserve or sip on a frozen margarita featuring El Jimador tequila!

So throw on your best hat (whether it’s a derby hat or sombrero) and join us at one of the following participating locations:

     The Hamilton Kitchen & Bar

     Grain.

     Allentown Brew Works

     The Dime (Renaissance Hotel)

     Queen City BBQ
