Day 17: Boo Tales – Then and Now

LUKE: Halloween woo, but not really. Weirdly no one is doing anything for Halloween so it’s mainly just gonna be a usual Friday. Though in school a couple of classes did Halloween-related things like watch the history of Halloween. That was mildly interesting. Unfortunately I had to walk home today and man was it raining hard and windy. My Dad came and got me from Mom’s and we went to an antique store to find a corner cabinet. Those types of stores have some of the craziest stuff, most of it I think comes from some Grandma’s and some of it I think…

The Great Halloween Debacle of 2013; Rusty’s in Old Louisville with Mike Berry and Larry Muhammad

The date of Halloween is Oct. 31. On that date, children dress up in costumes, knock on the doors of their neighbors, yell ‘Trick or Treat” and merrily collect bags of candy. Now when I was dressing up as a pirate in the South End, our biggest fear was that some sicko would insert a razor blade in an apple. When my kids were little, I walked around with the little Riddlers and SpongeBobs while my wife stayed home and passed out candy.

As of Wednesday, she’s 13, a milestone which, according to my daughter means she’s officially “too old” to dress up and trick or treat at the Louisville Zoo’s Not-So Scary Halloween.  So instead, I scared the heck out of her beneath the Zoo, with a trip to the Mega Zip, in the deep dark belly of the Mega Cavern. Adventurous types know that zip lines deliver an adrenaline rush as well as a bird’s-eye perspective on beautiful surroundings.  The view from the Mega Zip turns that experience upside down.    It’s the World’s first underground zip line. So, instead of tickling…

Ask any ghost buster or history writer in town and you’ll discover that Louisville is not only a great place to live but a fine city to haunt.  From Whiskey Row to Sleepy Hollow; Cherokee to Waverly,  our county is brimming with the restless past. To celebrate those living and hungry for a hot meal on this Halloween weekend, I’m suggesting a visit to the Seelbach and the Brown for lunch with the stars. Make that four Stars and four Diamond each. At the Seelbach’s Otto’s Cafe, you may be greeted by the Lady in the Blue Dress. Here’s a hint…
