The Rustic presents Cinco De Derby
Two of The Rustic’s most popular parties are merging to create one unforgettable fiesta. Start the day with Cinco de Mayo Brunch from 10 am-2 pm, where you can sip on The Rustic’s new Gentlemen’s Margarita – Herradura Select Barrel Reposado, Paula’s Orange, Gentlemen’s Jack and agave – while you jam out to free live music performed by an authentic mariachi band. Guests can also get their faces painted and salsa over to the Photo Wagon to take complimentary pictures in Dallas’ first mobile photo booth or take a one-of-a-kind photo with Poncho the Miniature Donkey.
Once brunch ends, The Rustic invites Kentucky Derby fans, as well as connoisseurs of high fashion, great food and Mint Juleps, to join in the race-day fun. Dress to impress for a chance to win great prizes in three Derby Best Dressed categories and one Cinco de Mayo/Derby combo category, judged by local celebrities. The fashion experts will begin judging as soon as the soiree starts at 2 pm.
Enjoy the races with other Derby fans while you sip on the Mint Juleps, made with Woodford Reserve Bourbon, lemon mint and a dash of Ysabel Regina Brandy served over crushed ice. Then indulge in a Kentucky Hot Brown sandwich created specifically for the party using smoked turkey and bacon, beefsteak tomatoes, mornay sauce and cotija cheese served on grilled Texas toast.
There will be live music by Noah Jackson, some of The Texas Gentlemen, and artists from Friday’s Foolery.
