They call it the "greatest two minutes in sports." And while pictures of shirtless drunks screaming at horses will pepper news outlets the following day, you can experience the Kentucky Derby as the classy affair it should to be. Wear your most audacious hat (think Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady), and come watch the races live on TV at Brit's. Sit inside and view the day on the big-screen in the Clubhouse upstairs, or sit outdoors and watch from smaller TVs while enjoying the sunshine and views from the rooftop. There will be appetizers and drink specials throughout the day; be sure to order up at least one mint julep. Free. 4 p.m. (Mint julep pictured by Danielle Scott)
