We are in countdown mode for the 136th running of the Kentucky Derby.  The fastest two minutes of sports is surrounded by two weeks of Derby events.  On Friday, its the kickoff for the Kentucky Derby Festival with the Kickoff Luncheon at the Galt House.  This year's guest speaker is Julius "Dr. J" Erving.  He is no stranger to the Derby and the many events leading up to the big race.  

I'm getting party confirmations on a daily basis.  Here's just a few events that I've been invited to attend:  TheSlice on Saturday, April 24th held at St. Augustine on Broadway, Saturday, April 24th Da'Ville Drum Line Showcase at the KY Intl Convention Center, The Kentucky Royal Celebrity Golf Tournament.  It will be held at the Chariot Run Golf Course on Thursday, April 29th.  Following the golf outing is the 4th Annual PreDerby All Star Jam at Horseshoe Casino.  I will be hosting that event that night.  On Sunday, after Derby, I will be at DJ's Show Cars at the Water Tower and then at Actors Theatre its Poetry In Motion.   

This is the shortlist of Kentucky Derby events.  If you have an event send me your information at the411@whas11.com
