And in keeping with the opulent traditions of the annual Derby, patrons can sip mint juleps from souvenir glasses and wear their most outrageous, glamorous, or horse racing-themed head coverings for a chance to win up to $300 in the Run for the Roses hat contest. First at-home race starts at 11:45 a.m. (contact track for Derby start-time), $6-$8. 510-559-7300 or
