In the wake of the devastating fire that left the iconic Rabbit Hash General Store in ruins on February 13, 2016, B & B Riverboats will be partnering with the Rabbit Hash Historical Society to launch a sunset dinner cruise from the Port Of Rabbit Hash on Sunday, May 1st. Boarding will begin at 5:00, cruise from 6-8 pm and the event will go on until 9 pm. Admission is $55.00, with all proceeds benefitting the restoration of the general store.
The cruise will be Kentucky Derby themed and include a buffet dinner, cash bar, live music, silent auction, “derby races” and a Kentucky Derby hat contest complete with trophies, so be sure to wear your finest derby attire!
We are pleased to announce that live music will be provided on the outer deck by The Knott Brothers, who’s members include Ed Vardiman (of Straw Boss) and Davey Mac (fiddle player for Hank Williams III).
Current Catering’s Chef Jesus Picazo has created a menu sure to tempt the most discernible Kentuckian’s palate. The buffet will include Pimento Cheese on Crackers, Cucumber, Onion and Tomato Salad, Kentucky Burgoo, Ham and Biscuits, Mixed Vegetables, Garlic Cheese Grits, Peach Cobbler and Red Velvet Cake.
The cruise will set sail from and return to Rabbit Hash KY. Parking is limited in town, and arrangements are currently being made for a shuttle from a designated area. Details will be posted as soon as they are available.
The Rabbit Hash Historical Society is a 501(C)3 non profit organization with a limited operating budget. The cost of the restoration of the store has been estimated at $275,000 – $350,000. This area’s concern and generosity, their donations and the benefits that have taken place and are scheduled to take place are overwhelming and humbling. The Historical Society would like to thank B & B Riverboats for the opportunity to host what is sure to be one of the highlights of the Kentucky Derby season!
Tickets are available at: www.bbriverboats.com/rabbithash, or by phone at (800) 261-8586, and will be available in Rabbit Hash on the day of the event.
