The first 50 guests to order Bottomless Frozen Juleps will receive an official 2017 Kentucky Derby julep glass. Due South is the only restaurant in the DC area to offer these keepsake glasses to its guests. Chef Rusty will prepare Derby Day dishes reminiscent of “My Old Kentucky Home,” including Beer Cheese Crostini, Kentucky Hot Browns, Ham and Biscuits, and Rusty’s “Kentucky Fried Chicken” wings.
