More than 120,000 mint juleps(!) will be served at Churchill Downs during the upcoming Kentucky Derby weekend. With time to spare before May 3’s Run for the Roses, the Town Square wine and whiskey lounge offers a cocktail class to prepare connoisseurs. The course will cover methods for the classic julep, a Derby favorite since 1938, and the Grey Goose Oaks Lily, the official drink of the Derby’s sister race, the Kentucky Oaks. All you’ll need now is one seriously oversized hat. April 15, 7 p.m., $30, reservations required, 735-9463.
