Kentucky Derby at Coppersmith

Opening at 10am on Saturday, Coppersmith will be doing the Derby thing all day indoors, on their expanded ground-level patio area and the famous rooftop that features a vintage Airstream trailer. Derby attire is encouraged at this socially-distant soiree; indoor reservations are available and outdoor seating is first come, first served. Coppersmith will be screening the “greatest two minutes in sports” and serving up some Derby-themed specials:

  • Kentucky Fried Chicken Bucket with corn, mashed potatoes, a biscuit and cole slaw ($21)
  • Mint Juleps ($12)

Let’s do some shopping

Heading into spring, Boston Seaport announces its latest collection of shops, all opening at The Current between May 1st and May 5th. Two new Boston companies, Myoli Bay, a sustainable swimwear line made from recycled plastic water bottles, and Love Child, which merges florals and cocktail-making-supplies, will make their debut at The Current, alongside Studs, a New York City based ear piercing and ear accessories studio who selected Seaport for its first ever pop-up. A local thread continues to run deep – Injeanius, which opened this Fall, 2020 remains part of the shopping experience, and Booty by Brabants will return for its fifth Seaport pop-up. Most shops will remain open through mid-August. Shops will be open seven days a week, Monday to Friday from 11am – 7pm, and Saturday and Sundays from 12pm – 6pm. Additional information can be found via www.atthecurrent.com and @seaportbos.
