Juleps, Juleps, Juleps!
May 5th is Derby Day! Whether or not you care about horse racing, this is a phenomenal opportunity to wear fancy hats, drink mint juleps, and, well, just day-drink in general. Thompson Seattle will host a viewing, brunch, and Bulleit Julep Bar in the Courtyard. The hotel will set up a whisky bar on the roof.
Head to the Derby’s website, where there is a second-by-second countdown to the festivities. If you had any doubt as to the primacy of wide-brimmed hats within the hierarchy of important things about this event, just check out their landing page: there’s a pink-and-purple feathered beauty. That’s the one to beat. With that in mind, we’re going to strongly recommend derby attire. People watching is part of the fun.
