The Three Greatest Courses in Horses & Kentucky Derby Spectator Social
This Saturday, May 4th, 2013 Industry Denver is presenting a Kentucky Derby double feature event to benefit Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign at Eden Denver (3090 Downing St.). We have joined their cause to make a significant contribution to Share Our Strength’s efforts in ending childhood hunger by providing access to healthy food for children in our community. This event has been a collaborative effort between a group of motivated food and drink industry professionals and on behalf of each of us that have come together for this unique Derby experience — we invite you to join us.

The presentation is a two-part event spread across two packages for you handcrafted experience. Our first presentation begins at 1:00 pm with The Three Greatest Courses in Horses. A high stakes cast of industry all-stars has designed a Kentucky style supper with three courses of culinary enjoyments and cocktails to pair.
If you can bear to pass on the lively Southern soul food presentation, we created a package for our friends to join in on the Derby culture. At 2:00 pm, the doors for the Kentucky Derby Spectator Social will open to the precession bar prior to main event entry. In the precession bar, Eden Denver will showcase the cocktails that are featured upstairs in the Greatest Three Courses. One cocktail is included in the precession bar until united with our guests on the main event floor to gear up for the greatest two minutes in sports.
On the main event floor, the Kentucky Derby will be broadcasted in two locations throughout the room, one of which is a projected screen that can be seen from around the room. Official race time is 4:23 pm, so we recommend arriving early (2:00 pm) to the precession bar for a cocktail before floor entry at 3:45 pm. Around the room, we will have a variety of fun things to eat, drink, and taste. A bar hosted with three of Denver’s most talented bartenders from the Colorado Bartenders Guild will showcase their lineup of three cocktails that have been inspired by Derby culture. Denver Dessert Trolley will showcase desserts prepared for this event and Eden Denver will be preparing their culinary specialties to keep our happy bellies full. And between spirits from Dancing Pines Distillery, Downslope Distillery, and RoundHouse Spirits, they should keep us from getting too thirsty. It is our pleasure to present to you, Industry Denver’s Greatest Three Courses in Horses & Kentucky Derby Spectator Social.
