Despite Evidence, Misinformed Jeffersontown Committee Unmoved on Airbnb Issue

Planning and Zoning Committee takes no action to allow Short-Term Rentals On Tuesday, I attended the Planning and Zoning Meeting of the Jeffersontown City Council. The only agenda item was short-term rentals. It was lightly attended, but there were a handful of residents who came prepared to express their opposition to legalizing short-term rentals. This committee has the authority to make changes to the law, but it appears to me no member of the committee is interested in learning FACTS about the issue. Instead, they listened as Norm Meyer of Plainview rambled on about how wrong it was for WAVE-TV…

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…
