Do you hear the hoof steps? No, it’s not half-price meal days at Golden Corral — it’s The Kentucky Derby. On Saturday, Sissy’s Southern Kitchen & Bar (2929 N. Henderson Ave.) celebrates ponies and gambling with its second annual Jockeys & Juleps. In the spirit of Southern hospitality (re: talking shit behind your back), Sissy’s will serve up the most divine of all drinks for just $7 from 3 to 6 p.m., including Sissy’s Mint Julep, Kentucky Punch, Presbyterian Bourbon Press and Alabama Sunset. Everyone in attendance is encouraged to don their Derby finery and a special prize will be awarded to the best outfit. Fun fact to bore your friends: The KD is the only race in the Triple Crown series that has run every year since 1875. Reservations for the party aren’t necessary, but are encouraged for dinner.
