In Jtown, protestors showed up to greet Mitch McConnell.

LouisvilleKY’s THE WEEK: From Tailspin to a Turtle’s Appearance, and on to the Gravy Cup,

Much was focused this week on Mitch McConnell’s appearance at a luncheon sponsored by the Jeffersontown Chamber. Plenty of protesters showed up at the Marriott, but none were able to get anywhere close to the Senator, who took only a few questions from the audience, mostly about healthcare. Of course, Mitch and his colleagues don’t like talking about a topic for which they don’t have an answer. But let’s move on to more pleasant topics, like how I’m never going to lose any weight with this kind of schedule. It all started Saturday at the Tailspin Ale Fest at Bowman…

I Believe In Science (Hill) for Supper

Lucky me. I received an invite to Sunday Supper at Science Hill Inn in Shelbyville. If you haven’t been, the place represents a step back in time, with a traditional dining room that looks as if it hasn’t been changed in a hundred years. In fact, the building opened as a school in 1825. The only other time I’d been here was to see the Christmas decorations, but little did I know of the fine dinner available prepared by chef Ellen Gill.
