Aight, so they don’t say that, but it will hold true for a few lucky ones covering their noggins at the annual Kentucky Derby hat contest, from 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday at Remington Park, 1 Remington Place. Winners will take home anywhere from $100 to $500, but all can enjoy the tea party. Call 424-1000 or visit remingtonpark.com.

Chuck it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
The man who once sang, “Well, I never been to heaven / But I been to Oklahoma” ... well, he probably still sings it, atrocious grammar and all. He’s Chuck Negron, co-founder of Three Dog Night — y’know, “Joy to the World,” “An Old Fashioned Love Song,” “Mama Told Me (Not to Come)” — and he performs free Saturday at Newcastle Casino, 2457 Highway 62 Service Road in Newcastle. The show starts at 7 p.m. with opening act Outlaw Son. Call 387-6013 or visit mynewcastlecasino.com.
