Event Details

The AUSTIN INFLUENTIAL GROUP is partnering with tenOak for the first annual Derby Day Event, benefiting R.O.C.K., Ride on Center for Kids.

http://www.rockride.org/

Experience all the excitement and fanfare of the 139th Kentucky Derby at the stylish tenOak Bourbon House + Lounge, situated in the heart of the Warehouse District in downtown Austin.  Make your way through the 120 year old doors and find yourself in an atmosphere that is both inviting and rich with elegance.  From its distressed plush booths and banquettes to its over-the-top wall art, tenOak mixes chic southern style with the laid back atmosphere that IS truly Austin.

Arrive in full Derby Day regalia with your exquisitely fashionable hats and seersucker suits.  Gentlemen, this is the perfect moment to show off that new bow tie or flashy fedora.  Ladies, break out those glorious Spring dresses and perhaps accent your look with a pair of wrist gloves.

Prizes for "Best Derby Hat" and "Best Dressed Gentleman"!!!
