Derby Day With Bulleit
We welcomed the one and only Hollis Bulleit, sporting a dress and, of course, hat in glorious green, to the Intercontinental Boston to celebrate Derby Day this year. It was a sunny afternoon, perfect for sipping a refreshing mint julep made with famous Bulleitt Bourbon.
"Why, Ms. Hollis, how kindly of you to receive us here today," we offered as guests gathered. We saw a few tidbits of food pass by on trays as the crowd, rather, shall we say, anxious for libations pressed around the bar. We chalked up the zeal to the chilly breeze off the water.
The famous Woody Wagon portable bar was on hand with plenty of bourbon for all, thankfully. After listening to the live music and chatting with guests we were ushered inside for the most thrilling two minutes to witness American Pharaoh take the roses. A lovely afternoon, indeed.
