Aside from the races, this year’s event will include a best-dressed competition, mixology contest, and delicious food catered by Earls. The restaurant chain will be building a pop-up kitchen on location and Hawksworth will be catering food for patrons in VIP suits. Whether you treat yourself at the taco bar or try delicious sushi doughnuts, the spread at the Cup will definitely satisfy.
