It’s a sporty kind of weekend… and a great day to be outside!
Today has been dubbed Cinco de Derby... the Kentucky Derby & Cinco de Mayo fall on the same day this year and while I don’t recommend mixing your mint juleps with your margaritas, you can combine the celebrations. Many area bars and restaurants are pulling double duty for these two (drinking) holidays today. Here are a couple of lists to check out the action in the city and suburbs.
Arlington Park also opened for the season this weekend… good luck betting on the ponies! Last post time today is at 6:18pm and they have a big weekend of live racing next weekend for Mother’s Day. Details here!
The White Sox take on the Twins at home this evening at 6:10pm... game info here!
Whatever you decide, have a great time… and don’t let me ever hear you say you don’t have anything to do!
