Churchill Downs's Paddock Pavilion, Friday, 1:30 p.m., Kentucky Oaks 139 Day

Welcome to our photo series Eater Scenes, where Eater photographers visit some of the city's great restaurants racetracks to capture them at a certain, and very specific, point in the day. Today, its the Churchill Downs Paddock Pavilion before the 139th running of the Kentucky Oaks.


For the fifth straight year, the theme for the Kentucky Oaks is PINK OUT! to show support for the Oaks and the important cause it supports." And breasts were especially on the mind of at least the masked fella dangling beads from the balcony overlooking the paddock. Rather than the more famous mint julep though, the official drink is the Oaks Lily: 1 oz. Grey Goose vodka, 1 oz. sweet and sour mix, 3 oz. cranberry juice and a splash of triple sec.
