Let’s: Do as they do in Kentucky - savor some delicious homemade pulled pork, get afternoon tipsy on Mint Julep punch and spiked lemonade, and play a little cornhole to pass away the time before the main attraction begins. If you're feeling really dapper, show off your decorative headdress. I know I'll be wearing mine!

We’d love to host: Happy folks in their 20s/30s who want to experience genuine Kentucky culture and are eager to make an event out of the most exciting 2 minutes in sports!

The Rundown:
With Chowbunga we can round up some interesting new people to meet, pool our funds and gather in the friendly environs of home for some delicious grub and refreshing punch at far greater convenience, comfort and value than what we'd find at any overcrowded bar televising the event.

The featured activities will be cornhole, lively horse betting, and a lavish display of Southern courtesy and charm!

Ticket prices are all inclusive and for cost-sharing purposes (as with all Chowbunga events).
The ratio of male-female attendees will be kept as close to 50/50 as possible.
Dress Code: Dress however you like, but if you show up in Churchill Downs attire (hats for ladies, bow ties for gents) you won't be alone and the Juleps will taste that much better!

Activities:
Cornhole
Horse betting (against one another)
Southern accents (authentic or feigned)

Menu:
Food (key ingredients being shipped in straight from Kentucky!!!)
Burgoo
Chopped BBQ pork
Chopped BBQ mutton
Baked beans
Bourbon balls (chocolate liquor desserts)

Beverage
Mint Julep Punch (bourbon)
Spiked lemonade

About your hosts: Rachael and Curtis

Rachael is from a small town in Kentucky. She is a huge fan of the derby and anything Kentucky (especially Kentucky Wildcats Basketball!) and would love to share her passion with whoever is interested. Her boyfriend, Curtis, is not a Kentucky boy, but she's working fast to mold him, and after a few Mint Juleps and a couple of rounds of Cornhole (aka bags), she will have you speaking the lingo too. Rachael and Curtis are big Chowbunga fans. They love attending CB events so much that they decided to host one of their own!
