No Apology Like a Good Apology

All this NASCAR craziness can be a good thing, I think. It’s certainly the most important thing to happen in the state’s economic development world in a while, and it’s fun to see local newscasts taking it seriously. It looks like WHAS-TV’s Claudia Coffey is having a little too much fun up there in Sparta. Other than that, the best story in today’s news is that Chip Woolley, the trainer of Derby-winner Mine That Bird, got himself in trouble for pissing next to a slot machine at an Iowa casino. Obviously, he wasn’t thinking, and was drinking, but he should…

Louisville Castle’s Garden Party

Glasses and pinkies up! It’s time for the annual Garden Party at Louisville’s very own Conrad Caldwell House. The party happens every summer to celebrate the Old Louisville Hidden Treasures Garden Tour. Now that we feel the humidity increasing, we know summer is here, and so is the party. This Friday night, July 8th from 6 to 9 pm, the party will take place at the house located on 1402 St, James Court. As you would expect at any social event, drinks will be poured, hors d’oeuvres will be served, music to be enjoyed and money to be spent (on…

Independence Day – And Day 664 Car-Free: Live Free or Drive!

As you and I have the freedom to load a bicycle and roam practically wherever we want – whenever the fancy strikes us – we are free. Would you believe that along the way, you can camp on courthouse lawns and swim in public pools in some generous communities for free? And in many of our National Parks, hikers and bikers can camp for practically nothing, or in wilderness areas for free.

Siegs On The River…A Place To Forget Your Troubles!

I get lucky every once in a while. The old saying that it’s good to know friends with boats couldn’t be more true than in our lovely River City. So,when asked to hang out on the river yesterday with Matt Coleman, a friend of mine, I graciously accepted. The beauty of Louisville really comes alive on the water, and so if you don’t have a boat but want the view with a lot of charm, you need to come down to Siegs on the river in Prospect, where we tied up after a glorious sunset. Siegs is a great combination of Tiki bar and…


Local Brews Flow Tonight at ‘Mellwood’

ORBP Part 2: Oh the people you’ll meet!

Over the course of two community forums this week, interested and interesting parties on both sides of the debate managed to vocalize a wide range of opinions on the latest incarnation of the Ohio River Bridges Project in a largely civil fashion that should leave us proud of our fellow citizens.

Water water everywhere! Riverfest Music Festival this weekend

Its that time of year, when we Louisvillians hit the water anyway we can to beat the heat. The best we can do is seek out the water around us in neighborhood pools, lakes or the mighty Ohio for that cool refreshing dip. Then come the important part, hydration. In this crazy Kentucky hot and humid climate, the good old Louisville tap is on hand for that much needed sip. But what if we didn’t have that clean H2O at our fingertips? Did you know that 40% of the world’s illnesses have origins in water? “It’s an unfortunate paradox that…

Inspiring PechaKucha Night at 21C … the Mayor and 12 other Thinkers.

In my travels, I always have trouble explaining to people just how exciting it can be to live in Louisville, and nights like last night at 21C reinforce how cool it is to live here. 21C Museum Hotel hosted Louisville’s fourth Pecha Kucha event last night to a standing-room-only crowd. It was one of those evenings that made me proud to live here among such creative, innovative, and optimistic people. The Pecha Kucha started in Japan in 2003 as a way for designers to present new ideas in a forum as concise as a bento box, and the format has…
