Once again you’ll be able to help support the world’s toughest side dog race and maybe, just maybe take home some of the loot to boot. With tickets at $100 each and only 250 being sold, you have a good chance of being one of the Lucky Eight.
Tickets are being sold at IJs (and a few other places). The drawing is Saturday, November 5 starting at 7p at the Badger Den. You can show up early at 6p for some fancy snacks. But you don’t need to be present to win. Just sit at Ivory Jacks and get some good food. They’ll call you and let you know when you’ve won.
Derby Day is coming this Saturday. In fact, its the 142nd such occurrence, and with it comes the time honored tradition of sipping Mint Juleps while knowing your car is freely parked right outside of Ivory Jacks.
This Saturday, doors open at 11a with the Derby starting about 2p. To celebrate the occasion and provide you savings and a good memory, IJs is handing out commemorative Kentucky Derby Glasses. Refills are only $10, and you keep the glass! If you hate the drink, forget-about-it. IJs famous menu is always on standby.
