Oh, The Cool Sights of Forecastle

It’s difficult to describe the Forecastle crowd — it spans the spectrum of humanity. All ages, body types, dress and levels of outrageousness. We can all agree that it was most unbearably hot for most of the weekend. But with the exception of a shortened set from Sam Smith on Friday, everything that was planned happened. And that was good. I spent a few hours there Friday and Saturday, long enough for a few PBRs and a rocking’ set from St. Paul and the Broken Bones, now a favorite band. LouisvilleKY.com’s photographer Bill Brymer was turned loose with an assignment that consisted of…

THIS WEEK: LouisvilleKY.com is Back with Music, Food and Blues

Thanks for coming back to LouisvilleKY.com. We had a brief hiatus that was part vacation/part technology issues. But that’s all worked out now thanks to tech whiz Jason Smith, and LouisvilleKY.com is humming along with content thanks to Jackie Bentley. Now, some highlights in my week: Memories of the Snake: Ken “Snake” Stabler, my fave QB from the glorious Raider days in the NFL, passed away at 69. I blame the part of my personality that is rebellious and resistant to authority on the Raiders, who in the 1970s were the baddest, meanest bunch of goofballs on the planet. Snake didn’t…


Louisville Uncovered presents: The Heigold House, mystery behind the facade on River Road

The Heigold House was built by immigrant stonemason Christopher Heigold, and stands at the intersection of River Road and Frankfort Avenue, watch the history around it on Louisville Uncovered !      “The Point” was a thriving 19th century neighborhood east of Downtown Louisville and opposite Towhead Island along the Ohio River.

Casks for a Cause is the Weekend’s Best Reason to Drink Beer

POSTPONED TO JUNE 27   This weekend’s big event is Casks for a Cause, in which some so-called “media stars” were asked to support charity by creating their own beer brand. I can’t figure out why no one requested a Rusty Satellite brew. Nonetheless, I’m planning to go and sample a few at the new Goodwood Brewery at Clay and Main. Plus, a chance to hear the Cathouse Liars. Here are the details: No Experience Necessary. Casks for a Cause brings together Media Stars supporting their favorite charity for a wham-bam Beer Block Party that is sure to please the crowds as…


Louisville Uncovered presents: A timeless Louisville favorite food lives on, nearly 120 years later.

Louisville Uncovered presents a fresh episode: “Benedictine Uncovered”   Benedictine, is a spread made with cucumbers and cream cheese, was invented near the beginning of the 20th century by Jennie Carter Benedict (1860–1928), a caterer, restaurateur and cookbook author in Louisville, Kentucky.[11] After attending Fannie Farmer’s Boston Cooking School, she built a 256-square-foot kitchen with a 48-square-foot pantry in her backyard in 1893 (with no running water!) for what she thought was an excessive $316.85 so she could better serve her catering clientele. Watch the story, now, “Uncovered” here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=meiK5siOG3I In 1900, “Miss Jennie”  opened a restaurant and tea room…
