AND THEY'RE OFF!
Saddle your horses over by the Gowanus Canal and get riled up for an evening of good clean fun. At the Kentucky Colonel's Winter Follies & Early Bird Derby Day Party, the first 100 to mosey on over get mint juleps on the house. Seersucker-outfitted chaps and ladies dressed in their finery sip bourbon as the gals of Wasabassco Burlesque put on a swell show. Swing your partner round and round as the rockabilly trio Susquehanna Industrial Tool & Die Co. get boots stomping with a rollicking show. Chris McDaniel cracks the bullwhip as he puts on the meanest lasso show in town. With all those racetrack games and prizes, you'll be damned if it ain't the big day.
