RIDE ON

Taxis. With Mariachis in Them.

It’s been too long since you were driven in an SUV while being serenaded by a mariachi band. So Friday, tap the sombrero on the Uber app and await your chariot. You’ll be entertained en route, then dropped off with some margarita mix and a piñata. You can take it from there.

May 4, noon-5pm, $100, Uber

Saturday
Endless Juleps at the Starlight Room
SEEING STARS

Endless Juleps at the Starlight Room

The Derby itself: about two minutes. The time you’ll spend enjoying bottomless mint juleps at this Southern brunch: let’s just say more than two minutes. Expect mac and cheese, brisket, biscuits and pecan pie—and a silly amount of silly hats. Yep, two sillys’ worth.

Mezcal for Cinco at Cantina
HIGH FIVE

Mezcal for Cinco at Cantina

To facilitate your Cinco festivities, Cantina’s opening an hour early, serving tacos and stocking up on insane amounts of mezcal. Yep, you’ll be getting very well-acquainted with tequila’s sexy cousin straight, on the rocks and shaken in margaritas. Here’s to keeping it in the family.

May 5, 4pm-2am, Cantina, 580 Sutter St (at Mason), 415-398-0195

It’s Time You Got That Custom Suit...
BESPOKEN FOR

It’s Time You Got That Custom Suit...

The tailors at Hiras are operating under the premise that if you don’t go to them, they’ll come to you. So they’ve been dispatched from London and Hong Kong to fit you for your next suit, jacket or shirt. It’s time to work on your seersucker for Derby 2013.
