The Derby Story
On May 3, 2008, some mutual friends of ours hosted a Kentucky Derby party, where Tracie and Andy first met. They grew up only one town apart, but had never crossed paths up until that day. As a matter of fact, Tracie had just moved back to Michigan from Texas only a couple of months earlier. It was just one of those chance encounters that changes your life forever. From that moment on, The Derby has always held a special place in their hearts.
Enough with the love story. What we like most about The Derby is the upbeat excitement that surrounds it and also the eclectic mix of people it brings together. People from all different backgrounds, gathering to have a good time. Come with friends and make new ones as well. That is what the Kentucky Derby is all about and we want to bring a piece of that to The Derby Tavern.
