Trump Louisville

Trump Loves Louisville KY

But does Louisville love Trump? TRUMP LOUISVILLE, Ky.  Super Tuesday is big. Really big. Each presidential candidate has had this day marked on their calendar for quite some time. Indeed, a whopping 12 states will take part – but Kentucky is not one of those states! However, for some inexplicable reason this is the day that Donald Trump has decided to visit Louisville – Super Tuesday. If you are a KKK fan you can go see “The Donald” at Kentucky International Convention Center. Whether  you are a supporter or, as what appears to be the majority in Louisville KY, a protester you…

LouisvilleKY Loves Its Tailspin Ale Fest

On Being a Volunteer Pourer at LouisvilleKY’s Tailspin For Pete’s Sake. . . that was the chocolate-peanut butter beer I was pouring, along with Sweet Baby Jesus, which, was just about as good. I was told the difference was a single percent of alcohol, but no one I spoke to mentioned any difference. I’m no beer connoisseur, and prior to the Tailspin Ale Fest at LouisvilleKY’s Bowman Field on Saturday, I wasn’t “in” on the craft beer scene. I spent several hours as a volunteer beer pourer on an unbelievably clear and warm February day. Pouring beer is a fun job,…

Week 2 of Pizza Club with Luke at Coals.

LouisvilleKY’s The WEEK: You Can’t Mail a Banjo to Italy, and Other Stories

It has been a truly wonderful week — I was able to enjoy free lunches twice, thanks to good luck and kindness from a stranger.  On Monday, I took my son Luke to the UPS Store in Stony Brook, with the intention of shipping a banjo to my son Nick in Italy. Well, that didn’t work out, as the UPS staffer looked at me, took a deep breath, and told me the cost was $650. Not happening. But next door we happened upon the grand opening of a new Potbelly Sandwich Store. My friend Denise, from the Jeffersontown Chamber, saw…

Louisville Uncovered presents: US Marine Hospital

The United States Marine Hospital: Portland, Kentucky The Ohio River has been the lifeblood of Louisville since the beginning of the River City. Back then river traffic had the nighty Ohio looking more like Spaghetti Junction than a lazy river. It was a pleasure to get an insiders look at the hospital as it stands today on Louisville Uncovered!  In 1837, Congress authorized the construction of the U.S. Marine Hospital in Louisville “for the benefit of sick seamen, boatmen, and other navigators on the western rivers and lakes.” (Ohio and Mississippi rivers and Great Lakes.) At this time, steamboats dominated…
