Winter Park-based distillery and blending house, Forward/Slash (Instagram) is celebrating an epic Cinco de Derby/Kentucky Cinco event in May and you’re invited.

They’ll be hosting a special Kentucky Derby party on May 4 with free entry, food by Red Panda Noodle (Instagram) from 5-8 p.m., an interactive photo booth, and peach juleps. Attendees can enjoy free samples of whiskey if they come dressed to impress in their best derby gear and Bungalower Buddy keyholders can unlock 15% off of their bar tab and another whiskey tasting just by dangling their keychain at the bartender, provocatively and unapologetically.

Side Note: Bungalower Buddies can unlock 10% off food and 20% off merchandise when they visit Red Panda Noodle.

They’ll also be hosting a special Cinco de Mayo event the following day on May 5 (duh), to celebrate the release of their new agave, Sin Nombre. The event is free to attend and will feature special menus from popular trucks like Gaucha Empanadas, Sundays Pizza, and Fuiyo Mexicana who they’re partnering with on a special collaborative margarita featuring their delicious consomme (that you use to dip your tacos in). Bungalower Buddy keyholders can also use their keychain to get 15% off their tab and a complementary taste of Sin Nombre.

Forward/Slash is located at 650 S. Capen Avenue [GMap], just behind The Porch.
