San Diego Derby Party
The San Diego Derby Party features a live bluegrass band during brunch as Barleymash rolls out the turf at this paddock-sized party surrounding the Kentucky Derby.
Enjoy the Hot Brown Flat Bread, topped with roasted turkey, garlic cream, bourbon-roasted tomatoes, caramelized onions, apple wood smoked bacon, pepper-jack and avocado. Try the specialty mint julep made with Woodford Reserve and keep the cup as a souvenir. Chef Kevin is also preparing a Barley Burgoo Stew, with pulled pork, braised chicken, braised short rib, black-eyed peas, okra, roasted veggies in a Maker’s Mark brown butter gravy and topped with crispy tobacco onions.
Proceeds benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Dress in derby day attire for a chance to win prizes for the best outfit and best hat.
