Ah, the Kentucky Derby. It's a time for celebration and for loss, especially if you bet on Suddenbreakingnews. But The Rustic in Uptown threw a sweet party, dubbed "Talk Derby To Me" as the horses raced on, with patrons coming dressed in their best to see if their horse won.

The Rustic offered live music, special Mint Juleps and additional craft cocktails and a Run for the Roses. There were prizes for best-dressed and fun set up for all of Derby Day.

And, of course, the hats of the Derby have always been a big deal. And whether you bet on Nyquist or not, you'll appreciate these party pics. Check them out below.
