Watch the Kentucky Derby

The Kentucky Derby is on Saturday, May 3rd this year with the Post time for the main race between 5:00 and 5:30 p.m. Come on down to Potawatomi and place bets for the race, wear your favorite hats sip some mint juleps, and watch the race in the Nothern Lights Theater! After the race excitement, we can grab some food and drinks at a restaurant in the casino and maybe stay for some gambling, bingo, or we can also talk about buying tickets for the comedy show that usually occurs on Saturday nights. This is a great time to engage in the excitement of the Triple Crown Races!!!

    Hey Everyone!!! It was great to see all of you yesterday and I am so glad you all had a great time watching the Derby. If any of you are interested, Fred and I will be back at Potawatomi to watch the Preakness Stakes and to place our bets to see if California Chrome can pull off another win! Since many of you got your feet wet with betting, you can have another go at it now that you know what you are doing. It shouldn't be nearly as crowded in the Theater as it was for the Derby. If you are interested, feel free to e mail me back or you can text me the day of and let me know you are coming. I believe there will be a comedian in the theater after the race, so if anyone is interested, we may be able to stay after and catch the comedy show. My number is[masked]-8808. I may send our another e mail at the day gets closer just to remind you all. Take care and Giddyup!! :)

    Hi everyone! Happy Derby Day! We should be there around 3:30 or so today. My cell phone number is[masked]-8808. My internet reception is pretty bad at Potawatomi so if you have any problems, please text me. Also, if you do not plan on attending this event, PLEASE update your RSVP. We do have a three-strikes-and-you're-out policy here at Milwaukee Fun. There are some of you who have already no-showed twice. If you don't plan on attending and you are interested in staying in the group, UPDATE YOUR RSVP. Thank you and see you soon!

    I changed my RSVP to no because they scheduled a last minute track meet for my team that day. I might still try and make it down there, but I can't be 100% sure. I hope to see you guys if I can make it.

    April 26, 2014

      Sounds great Amy! Keep us posted!
