Derby Wings Charity Bash @ BW3′s

Wednesday, May 2

Buffalo Wild Wings
1055 Bardstown Road • 454-3635
Free; 7 p.m.

As if fried chicken wings and cold beer aren’t enough of a reason to go to a charity function at Buffalo Wild Wings in the Highlands, they’ve decided to go one better — you can meet Jean Cruguet, the now-retired jockey who rode Seattle Slew to a sweep in the 1976 Triple Crown. Cruguet will be signing photos (in exchange for a donation), and proceeds will go to Permanently Disabled Jockey Fund, a charity that provides much-needed financial assistance to disabled jockeys. In addition to Cruguet’s signing, photographs of Seattle Slew, Secretariat, Barbaro and more will be raffled, plus there will be a silent auction and drink specials. Ready to get your Derby week out of the starting gate? This is the place. And they’re off. —Kevin Gibson
