- This bar is a good bet this weekend.
Kentucky Derby week is a special time. It’s a chance to don a goofy hat or a seersucker suit and enjoy a mint julep or six. Tavern in the Village (3901 Prairie Lane, Prairie Village) and Tavern at Mission Farms (10681 Mission, Leawood) are hosting derby parties from 3 to 6 p.m. Saturday. They’ll be serving Thai Tavern juleps made with bourbon from Dark Horse Distillery, as well as Kentucky Hot Brown sandwiches, shrimp and grits, and Kentucky Derby Burgoo stew. There will also be an extended happy hour that includes $2.50 bottles of beer, $5 martinis and Manhattans and BBQ pulled-pork sliders.
