Oliver’s Place holding Kentucky Derby promotion
Fort Myers Beach restaurant at Santini Plaza will have contests, prizes Saturday
For those unable to make it out to Kentucky this weekend, Oliver’s Place will be offering a bit of the action with a Kentucky Derby promotion while showing one of the world’s most famous races.
The Santini Plaza restaurant and sports bar with 30 high-definition televisions will be offering giveaways for its best hat contest in honor of the time-honored hat tradition for horse racing attendees, and gift certificates for those who draw the winning horse’s number out of a hat. There will be no charge to enter the contests.
There will also be drink specials in tandem with a Cinco de Mayo themed party.
“We’re going to try and make a fun day of it,” Oliver’s Place Manager Susan Cousins said. She expects there to be multiple winners of the prizes.
Post time for the Kentucky Derby is 6:50 p.m.
Oliver’s Place is open from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Saturday.
