Sure, Los Angeles has Coachella and Burning Man, New York has Woodstock, but here in DC, we can only dress it up to the nines and get some gambling involved. That’s right, it’s Gold Cup Weekend: where the dress code is insane, the drinking prolific and the horse racing is hotter than the Kentucky Derby, only with less julep. The gates open at 10am, and the Tavern Tents open at 11, so get your Saturday best on (Hunt Country Casual, please!) and be sure to check with the Washington Socialites as to what’s in this season.
