NUMBER OF TICKETS AT THIS PRICE

And they’re off! On Saturday, May 6th, we’re going to celebrate in style as we crawl through River North and enjoy the the longest running sporting tradition in America: The Kentucky Derby. Crawl through the hottest bars from 1 PM - 7 PM in River North looking like a Derby rockstar while enjoying Mint Juleps, specials at every bar, free prizes like a $50 gift card to Vineyard Vines and an atmosphere that will have you cheering like you’re at the Churchill Downs, the world’s most legendary racetrack. Don’t worry about walking too far! All bars will be walking distance so you can enjoy those Mint Juleps!

Men, don that vibrant seersucker suit and ladies show off that bright dress with a bold and beautiful hat. And you’re definitely going to want to dress up as you cheer on your very own horses in our Derby Competition and Best Hat Competition  for a chance to win some fantastic prizes.

The Derby Details

Derby Competition

Upon entrance you will receive a map of the crawl, a wristband for specials and a random combination of any three horses in the race and their winning place chosen randomly (if you don’t like your picks, feel free to change them!). If any of the horses you receive place 1st, 2nd or 3rd as listed on your card, you may have a chance to win a prize!

1st Place - $50 gift card to the official style of the Kentucky Derby, Vineyard Vines: All three horses win in the exact order listed on your card

2nd Place - Free Drink and app at the unique and sophisticated speakeasy, The Black Kat Club: At least 2 horses listed on your card place in either 1st, 2nd or 3rd

3rd Place - Free MPC event!: At least 1 horse listed on your card places in either 1st, 2nd or 3rd

Best Hat Competition

Stand out like the ladies of the Derby by wearing a beautiful hat to show off that Southern belle inside you! First, take a picture of you in your hat and share it on our Meet People Chicago Facebook page. Then, wait till all your friends get blown away and start liking your picture. The belle with the most likes wins a $20 gift card to Wolfbait & B-girls, a local boutique shop full of over 250 local artisan's beautiful designs and pieces. Definitely a good spot to stock up on a nice new dress or hat!

What to Wear

Men: A seersucker suit is the classic look, but a striped shirt or classic blazer in vibrant colors like Key Lime, Ocean, Bermuda Pink, and Citron with a pair of loafers work too! Most gentlemen wear a necktie, but a bow tie is always a great option as well.

Women: That beautiful spring dress or pastel-colored suit sitting in your closet has a chance to come out! Coordinate your color with the iconic Derby hats which can be decorated with flowers, feathers, bows or ribbons, and you have a winner. Remember, the best looking hat with the most likes wins!

Don’t have that classic Derby look? It’s okay, just wear your favorite spring dress!

Ladies,

Well, it's time to have a night just for us where we can mingle with other amazing women, have tasty sweets, delicious drinks, incredible ambiance and vibe, all at Chicago's most historic looking speak easy - Black Kat Club.

Black Kat Club. Think of the Great Gatsby, women in flapper dresses, men in black tuxes. Barmen in suspenders and servers with feather hats. You don't have to dress like that of course, but with a classy place like this, putting on our favorite dresses and gowns would fit in nicely.

And this night we're going to have some nice goodies..

  • Wine tasting
  • Complimentary dessert
  • $7 wines all night
  • Meet 50+ amazing women like you
  • Be invited to Chicago's most best kept secret speakeasy

* Wine tasting, dessert are provided by Meet People Chicago LLC.

How about men? Sure they can come but they will have to impress us with their style and presence because this night is our night. ;)

So, put on your favorite dress and go out in style on May 27. While others get sloppy somewhere else, we ladies will enjoy a glamorous night of drinks, food and great company at Chicago's best kept Prohibition era speakeasy.

Chicagoans,

What’s better than a nice, cold beer on a warm day?

There’s a magical place in Chicago that opens up when the birds are chirpin’ and the trees are green. Where you can enjoy a nice beer outside. It’s called... a beer garden. The seeds of beer have been planted and it’s harvestin’ time baby. The beer gardens of Chicago are full of ripe, fresh beer and they’re calling your name. Join us on this Memorial Day Weekend on Sunday, May 28th and 60 others as we drink the cream of the crop at the hottest and best beer gardens in all of Chicago on our Beer Garden Party Bus Crawl!

The people are friendly, fun and it's pretty easy to just bounce around meeting new people. I HIGHLY recommend you give this group a try if you're on the fence. Peter does a fantastic job organizing, and it's always good to get out and explore/drink in new areas of Chicago with people just looking to have a good time."
