Crawl for the Roses Kentucky Derby Party - May 7

The 1st Annual Crawl for the Roses at the Lake of the Ozarks is taking place this Saturday, May 7, 2016 from 3 pm - 6 pm. JB Hook's is thrilled to be a part of this spectacular event in honor of the Kentucky Derby. 

Our lake view bar at the Lake of the Ozarks will the the center of all the action during the "most exciting two minutes in sports." That is one title the Kentucky Derby has been given.  Another is the "Run for the Roses" because the winning thoroughbred is adorned with a blanket of red roses. We are one of the stops along this "Crawl for the Roses" that you can participate in, which is sponsored by Four Roses Kentucky Bourbon. 



America's greatest race takes place at the world's most legendary racetrack, Churchill Downs, and has been happening since 1875. 3-year-old thoroughbred horses race 1.25 miles around a dirt track. A crowd of around 155,000 attends the races in person each year.

Since Louisville, Kentucky is a bit of a trip from this area, you can watch the race with us from the many televisions in the JB Hook's bar. We plan to incorporate a few Kentucky Derby traditions into our celebration to make you feel like you're really there. 


The Hats
One of these traditions will be the fabulous and extravagant hats and bonnets that race-watchers are expected to wear. The bigger and louder the hat, the better! You will see them in every style, from glamorous and pricey to humorous and fun. Over time, these hats have come to be seen as a symbol of good luck at the race. If you happen to have the best derby hat at JB Hook's this weekend, you will be lucky enough to take home a $50 gift certificate. Better start planning your look now!



The Roses

The red rose is the official flower of this famous thoroughbred race because of the blanket of roses that is presented to the winning horse. The rose garland made its first appearance in 1896, but at that time it was an arrangement of white and pink roses. The red rose didn't become the official flower until 1904. Bill Corum, a New York sports columnist, gave the race the nickname "Run for the Roses" in 1925. At our party, we will be offering roses to the ladies for as long as our supply lasts.   


The Bourbon

The traditional beverage of Churchill Downs has been the Mint Julep for over 100 years. The main ingredient in this refreshing cocktail is good old Kentucky Bourbon. Our event is sponsored by Four Roses Bourbon out of Lawrenceburg, Kentucky. Four Roses was given the title of American Whisky Distiller of the Year in 2011, 2012, 2013, & 2015 by Whisky Magazine. 

This particular brand of Bourbon has a long, colorful history. It was one of only six distilleries during Prohibition that was legally licensed to distill Bourbon, for "medicinal purposes only" of course. It has been around since 1888, and this award-winning drink has withstood the test of time. You can give it a try this weekend.   



Join us this Saturday for all of the fun and excitement. It's always a party when we gather at our steak and seafood restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks, and this Kentucky Derby viewing event is sure to make it even more special. If you simply can't wait until Saturday, come on in for Happy Hour at JB Hook's on Friday from 3-8 pm and catch some of the early race coverage and get a taste of our Four Roses Bourbon before everyone else.

The cup is being held in Asia for the first time, and the world cup will feature a new logo based on the current rugby world cup logo instead of the traditional cup rugby logo.
