“Cinco de Drinko” and Derby Day are just around the corner which means it’s time to giddy up and fiesta at Thirsty Scholar Pub.


On Friday, take a trip south-of-the-border in a tequila-fueled celebration of Mexico with themed food and cocktail specials. Available on May 5 for the official Cinco de Mayo celebration, specialty sips include a Margarita Flight, ($21), a trio of variations (salted watermelon, habanero, original) in short glasses with salted rims; Salted Watermelon Margarita ($14) with blanco tequila, salted watermelon simple syrup, triple sec and lime; Spicy Margarita ($14) with habanero tequila, triple sec, simple syrup and lime; Mexican Mule ($12) with blanco tequila, lime and ginger beer; and Mezcal Paloma ($13) with mezcal, grapefruit and lime. To snack, there are a pair of Birria Tacos ($18) with tender marinated beef, onions and peppers served in mozzarella-stuffed tortillas with a side of rice; and a Stewed Chicken Plate ($17) with rice, beans and sweet plantains.


On Saturday, May 6, it’s time to get down and Derby for a 149th stakes race viewing party. The bar will be shaking up a bourbon-laced Mint Julep ($14) festively served in a silver cup over crushed ice. If you’re sporting the top topper of the day, take home a $50 gift card back to Thirsty Scholar for rocking the best Derby-themed hat.
