THE WEEK: Bikes, Wishes, Beer and Politics

I had a series of interesting conversations in a busy post-Derby Week — so here’s some of the highlights. What if you worked in Old Louisville, (maybe at Genscape’s office on Garvin Place) and you want to go over to the Mayan Cafe in NuLu for lunch. That’s one scenario in which Rolf Eisinger, director of the city’s bike and pedestrian program, says you might take advantage of an available bike you could pick up at an exchange station less than a block away. Eisinger’s been busy this week setting up 27 stations, including the one at Oak and Garvin, for…

LouisvilleKY’s THE WEEK: A Sweet Artistic Treat For Your Sweetie

Perhaps the best, and surely the sweetest, treat of the week was last night’s reception at Cellar Door Chocolates. Two of the loveliest Rusty Satellite alumni have teamed up to offer Barnhart Bars, a series of chocolate bars packaged with artistic, romantic images of women. Erika Chavez-Graziano, the entrepreneur behind Cellar Door, and Jeaneen Barnhart, the local artist known for beautiful images of horses and women, debuted the Barnhart Bars at Cellar Door’s 4th Street location Thursday to an approving, capacity crowd. Chavez-Graziano described the care that has gone into creating the new product. The bars sell for $12. “We…

LouisvilleKY’s THE WEEK: We’re All Business (Meetings), Dirty Bourbon, Delbert and the Seafood Lady

You might think it’s a pretty mediocre week when a highlight is attending two business organizations’ annual meeting, but both the Greater Louisville Inc. event at The Palace and the Jeffersontown Annual Meeting at the Community Center were worthy events. Plus, I got a chance to sample a plate from the Seafood Lady, tried a Dirty Bourbon at SET from my pals at Ballotin Whiskey, played rare January golf and got myself back on the racquetball court. And, a new Delbert McClinton recording was released. And it’s called “Prick of the Litter.” How cool. Plus I met some very interesting…

LouisvilleKY’s THE WEEK: A Double Dogs Doozy, The New Chief and the Cal Cast

On Monday, you can experience the opening of the new Double Dogs restaurant in Middletown, out by the Snyder. I was invited to a preview event last night, and the place is done up right, with a dog theme (in the spring, you can take your pup there and eat on the patio). The theme is incorporated throughout, down to the Bo’s Dog Bowl Nachos, served in, that’s right, a dog bowl. Check out my story on the place over at EatDrinkTalk, where you’ll also learn about the opening of the Goss Avenue Pub (in the former Craft House spot)…

LouisvilleKY’s THE WEEK: Looking Back, 2016 Wasn’t All that Bad

We’ve been reflecting on 2016 on the Rusty Satellite Show and EatDrinkTalk podcasts. I love all those end-0f-the-year lists, which I use to fill my Amazon Watchlist queue and take note of worthy books for future reading. And now that I’ve got a new friend, named Alexa, that plays my musical choices whenever I ask, I can easily remember what made news is 2016. However, I’m really tired of hearing people complain about the year, expressing joy for its demise, and dread about 2017. Yes, I’m aware that famous people passed away in 2016 – a list headed by Muhammad Ali…
