Kentucky Derby – The 148th Run For The Roses
If you can’t be there, it’s fun to gather some people at the bar and make a quick bet, with the winner collecting the money and hopefully sharing it with the others to buy drinks.
For those in the LA Beach Cities, Berry Bly is holding his annual Kentucky Derby Party at Shade Hotel in Manhattan Beach. $20 and tickets are here.

Among the many stories PubClub.com has on the Derby are two essential ones: a guide to the wild infield party scene and a comparison of the differences between the infield and the grandstands from Kentucky native “Derby Dee.” Plus a bonus article on the history of the Kentucky Derby and some fun facts about it.
Final Weekend For New Orleans JazzFest
Also this weekend it’s the final days of one of the USA’s top music and party festivals, Jazzfest in New Orleans! Folks, if you’ve never been to it then put it oin your bucket list because it is FUN. There are bands of all varieties on a series of stages, they sell beer by the caseload if you want it, the food is awesome and because it’s New Orleans you go party on Bourbon Street at night!
Fun Events In San Diego: A Cajun Festival & Tacos & Tequila
One of the many things that makes San Diego such a fun place is the fact that there are events nearly every single weekend.
For example, this Sunday is a Cajun Festival which is like being in New Orleans and at JazzFest for those of us who are not at the real thing. Gator By The Bay has seven stages of bands, jambalaya, gumbo, fresh crawfish and all the flavors and sounds of the Big Easy. It runs Friday thru Sunday at Spanish Landing, a scenic park that runs along the back bay from Harbor Island.
The next Saturday, another waterfront location is hosting SoCal TacoFest, an event with more live music, all the tacos you can eat and all the beer and tequila you should drink. It is at Waterfront Park, which is right smack downtown with a view of San Diego Bay.
Don’t forget to call mom on Sunday or, if you live near her, go see her and take her out to lunch or dinner. Or, for something beautiful and different, in addition to giving her flowers, take her to a place full of flowers, the Carlsbad (CA) Flower Fields.
