Just Johns (4112 Manchester Avenue; 314-371-1333) You'll have a gay ol' time at Just John's Club on Derby Day. There's no cover, and there will be free food and cash prizes for a Derby attire contest. Quitting Amy will be playing on the patio after the screening of the Kentucky Derby. But the party isn't over once the last horse crosses the finish line. Drink specials and general merriment will continue into the night. Hats are encouraged for both women and men. The bigger the better.
The Royale (3132 S. Kingshighway; 314-772-3600) This year will mark The Royale's eighth annual Derby Day celebration, and from what we've heard, it's the place to be. The Soulard Blues Band and Tom Hall will be providing tunes for the event, which goes from 2 p.m. until last call. Tickets are $8 in advance or $10 at the door. Oh yeah, and you better be dressed in your Derby Day finest. Men are required to wear ties, and ladies, come rocking your most southern hat.
But wait, there's more!
