Crawl for the Roses During Harbor Hop This Saturday!

Boating season is officially opening up for 2016 this weekend with the 19th Annual Spring Harbor Hop, which we detailed in last week's blog. The Kentucky Derby happens to fall on the same day as Harbor Hop this year, and your favorite waterfront restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks will be celebrating both awesome events. 

Roses, prizes, fancy hats, & Bourbon!

This year on Saturday, May 7, 2016 between 3-6 pm, the 1st Annual Crawl for the Roses will take place at the Lake of the Ozarks, and Shorty Pants Lounge will host a stop for the crawl. This fun afternoon centered around watching what is referred to as the "most exciting two minutes in sports" will be filled with lots of excitement in addition to the race. 

First of all, while they last, we will have roses for the ladies. The red rose is the official flower of the Kentucky Derby, and they make up the garland that the winning thoroughbred is crowned with. We will also have Four Roses Bourbon souvenir cups to hold your favorite cocktails while you cheer on the fastest horse. 

A popular tradition of the Kentucky Derby is the Derby Hat Parade inside of Churchill Downs. Ladies don their fanciest bonnets, and the gents put on their best hats to wear to the race. We will continue this tradition during our event, and the best-looking hat will win a $50 gift certificate. These extravagant hats have become a symbol of good luck during the races, and they'll also come in handy during Harbor Hop to keep the sun out of your face. 

Live Music + Spring Harbor Hop

As if having two awesome things going on at the same time wasn't enough, we've added some amazing live entertainment to the mix. Adrian Bartholomew will be performing onstage from 2-6 pm. We know how to treat our customers right at Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina! When you pack the boat for Harbor Hop in the morning, throw your fancy hat in the bag and make sure your route brings you to us during these hours. 

Mint Juleps & More

Four Roses Bourbon out of Lawrenceburg, Kentucky is the sponsor for the Crawl for the Roses. The were voted the American Whiskey Distiller of the Year by Whisky Magazine 4 out of the last 5 years. One of the many amazing cocktails that we can make for you this weekend is the traditional beverage of the Kentucky Derby - the Mint Julep. Sitting out on our lakeside deck, mint julep in hand, watching the races, now that sounds like an unforgettable afternoon at the lake.  

We're only a few days away from another action-packed weekend at the best Cajun restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks. After all of the partying on Saturday, make sure that you come back with Mom on Sunday so you can treat her to a relaxing meal by the water's edge for Mother's Day. Shorty Pants Lounge & Marina is always a wonderful place to hang out and and enjoy a day with both friends and family.
