Spring is here and there are some May Events this week that should be really fun. There are three events back to back so don’t miss them. This Friday night, we have the May Friday Night Live event, which is a Western theme this time. It also happens to be Cinco De Mayo so we will think of it as Tex Mex? This Saturday, Trailfest is happening all day and so is the Kentucky Derby.
May EventsFriday the 5th
On May 5th, this Friday night, Friday Night Live features Western Night. Come in to Freight Kitchen & Tap and enjoy the spirit of a great wait staff that always dresses up for the occasion. Do you have a pair of cowboy boots that you have not worn in while? Now is your chance. What about that cowboy hat? Arrive in your awesome threads. You will fit right in with all our staff. Also, please make sure to check out the outdoor beer tent serving our local Reformation brews (Sabine, Cadence & Union).
It is also Cinco de Mayo, so come celebrate both events with us. It is a good time to try our new 8 ounce Venison Burger topped with asher blue cheese, house seasoning, and red onion marmalade with a farm fresh side that we added to the menu in April. It has only been on the menu for a month but has already gained popularity and when you try it, you will see why. We will also have a Friday special 14 oz dry aged CAB (certified angus beef) bone in strip steak with herbed compound butter served with loaded baked potato and collard greens.
May EventsSaturday the 6th
On May 6th, all day this Saturday, check out Trailfest 2017. This event is a collection of experiences designed to embrace the beauty of the outdoors and the importance of our natural resources. All of the proceeds benefit the Greenprints Alliance, which aims to strengthen and expand our trails to create interconnectedness to other communities, our environment and each other.

Enjoy Trailfest and stop by before, after or in between activities for our Kentucky Derby cocktail specials. The race actually starts at 6:46 PM and lasts for only two breathtaking minutes but festivities are going on all day long.
