Mint Juleps are served in a collectible glass, at the Derby. Throughout Churchill Downs, people (usually men) walk around hawking these drinks like people hawk popcorn at a basketball game. People work hard to collect these glasses! Some people must have every one ever made, and will pay big money to make their collections. Of course, you can get some kind of gold-plated julep cup for a contribution of a mere $1000, which goes to some kind of charity.
