Kentucky Derby or Cinco de Mayo?

This year the Kentucky Derby falls on Cinco de Mayo. So many will have a very hard decision to make that day. Margaritas or Juleps? Well, we're guessing most of you will pick margaritas and celebrate Cinco de Mayo. For those who are craving a minty julep, however, there is only one place to go, The Bell House. Every year they hold a big party for the Derby and it's always awesome. Their schedule for the day is below. I'm sure the bartender would make you a margarita too if need be.
