Looks like even the Derby is feeling the pinch of the economic downfall. Attendance is down this year for the typically star-studded event and Louisville is suffering with vacancies at hotels and less business at local bars and restaurants. Let’s hope the big ugly lady hat market hasn’t been hit too!
I’ll be doing my part-I’m hitting Bell House in Brooklyn for a Derby party tomorrow…AFTER I hit OTB and hang out with some grandpas for most of the afternoon. That’s right…good old fashioned Brooklyn style grandpas. There’s no place like OTB on Derby day. No PLACE!
