Join us for cocktails and sunsets as we welcome the start of Breeders' Cup week and the kick off to the Fall racing season.  Enjoy the ocean views as our mixologists pour the best drinks in town, including this year's signature cocktail: Off to the Races, featuring bourbon whiskey, ginger beer and Memphis Barbeque Bitters. Pop-up food from our very own Chef Nathan Lingle (click to view our Raw Bar and our Taco Bar menus), along with craft beer and featured liquors and live music.  It's certain to be one stylish night by the sea.

Two girls wearing Race Track hats

The Breeders' Cup not only means great racing meets, but it is also the highlight of racing fashion.  All week long we'll have Christine A. Moore, the Official Millinery of the Breeders' Cup, here in our Living Room with her collection of beautiful hats for both men and women.  Stop by and try one on, or maybe two!

To preview Christine's hats, please visit her website.
