Corkboard: What bar has the best Preakness celebration?

this is a black eyed susan. looking at it makes me long for warmer weather.This morning, I got an e-mail from Paige, who is hosting a bachelorette party for one of her Preakness-loving friends.

She writes:

The bride-to-be is a huge Preakness fan and I don't want her to miss out too much over the weekend.

Do you have any ideas of bars/restaurants that have great Preakness celebrations? Or at least serve Black Eyed Susans?

That's a good question, Paige, and I'm afraid I don't have an answer myself. That's why I'm turning it over to the friendly crew of Midnight Sunners and bar owners.

Help, guys!
