Where to Celebrate Cinco de Mayo & Derby in NYC

On Thursday, May 4, you’re are invited to get down and Derby on Thurby – a little known Kentucky tradition and how the locals celebrate Derby on the Thursday before the big race day! Join Maker’s Mark and Bars + Crafts to decorate mini equestrian-themed planters and pot them with mint (yours to keep!), just in time to enjoy some fresh garnishes for the night’s special Mint Juleps and light bites.
