One of the major things you want to do if you are looking to be a "local" is to find a hospitality tent to get invited to for Kentucky Derby. Various tents are rented out by most of the major local corporations and here is where you get your mint juleps and your race day food.

Each of the tents is equipped with televisions to know when the next race is scheduled for, and they are strategically located close to betting stations. Remember, you have to bet big to win big!

In our hospitality tent, we were served macaroni and cheese, potato salad, fresh roasted ham and turkey, as well as the infamous derby pie!
