      5 Must-Haves for Your Perfect Derby Day

      Posted by Brianna on May 2, 2019 3:30:00 PM

      The most exciting two minutes in sports takes place this Saturday, May 5th, as the 145th Annual Kentucky Derby kicks off the Triple Crown. The derby will be followed by the Preakness Stakes on Saturday May 18th, and the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 8th.

      The Kentucky Derby, which takes place at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky, is always a very big deal. The race, a Stake I race, draws incredible and unmatched betting crowds. The horses that participate in the race are trained specifically for intense racing, and for this short 1.25-mile track.

      The race is always on the first Saturday of May, the winning horse and jockey are always draped with a blanket of roses, and crowds still pour in wearing their fancy clothes and unique hats, and of course, sipping on Mint Juleps.

      Whether you are a horse-racing fan or just in for a day of fun, here are 5 must-haves to throw a stellar Derby Party:

      Cincinnati Ranked #2 City for Nightlife in the Country

      Posted by Brianna on Jan 30, 2019 2:30:00 PM

      Cincinnati is known for a lot of things. Chili-cheese coneys, flying pigs, and of course, Geotta. Cincinnati has the crosstown basketball game, Fiona at the zoo, King’s Island amusement park, and Findlay Market. When you think of Cincinnati, though, do you think of nightlife?

      When I think of cities with great nightlife, I think of cities like New York, Las Vegas, Chicago, and Los Angeles. In the past, I haven’t included Cincinnati in the group of major night life cities. However, that is about to change.
