Although some are celebrating Cinco de Mayo on Saturday evening (perhaps to avoid that margarita hangover on Monday morning) there’s always the historic Kentucky Derby Day on Saturday, May 4 that’s cause for celebration! You technically don’t have to choose between bourbon and tequila: mint julep or margarita? In fact, we have just the spot for you to celebrate both on this very warm, spring weekend in May: River Ranch Lodge in Tahoe City/Alpine Meadows!
Throw on your Derby hat and heels for Saturday’s festivities and trade them in for a sombrero on Sunday.
