LouisvilleKY’s THE WEEK: In a Tailspin with EatDrinkTalk and Rusty Satellite Friday, Feb 17 2017 

If you didn’t get a ticket at one of the many pre-Tailspin events held around town, you may be out of luck. But if you are going to the Tailspin Ale Fest at Bowman Field Saturday, come by and let me pour you a beer. I’ll be a volunteer beer filler upper at the 4th annual Winter Warmer, along with my EatDrinkTalk partner Steve Coomes.

TailspinAleFest_2017_ColorLogoHere’s a story from EDT about it.

Speaking of EDT, this week’s podcast is a tasty one, and includes my interview with Chef Ellen Gill McCarty, and Michael Beckmann, talking about Das Meal, a five-course beer-paired feast coming to Science Hill Inn in Shelbyville Feb. 23. You can get a $70 ticket online.

Steve’s guest is New Albany operator Ian Hall, the force behind Brooklyn and the Butcher and The Exchange, two of the restaurants helping to make crossing the bridge palatable.

Listen to EatDrinkTalk here:

Now I know I promise, every week, to introduce you to the “most interesting people in the ‘Ville.” But Diana Dinicola is REALLY interesting. A student of the arts, she first came to Louisville from Northwestern University

Diana Dinicola

Diana Dinicola

as an intern at Stage One Theatre. Later, she did PR for the Louisville Ballet and the Opera. But she wasn’t satisfied with just art as a career choice, so she went to Atlanta, got a business degree, and ended up as a partner in Studio Kremer, one of the city’s most successful architectural firms.

Diana also finds time to run a Clifton studio offering the region’s only Flamenco dance classes, and performs frequently at area events, including a monthly show at Cafe Classico on Frankfort Ave. You’ll want to hear what she has to say to me.

Of course, Erin Fowler is equally interesting – the VP of Events at Kosair Charities has enjoyed a rapid corporate climb in four years after leaving the Jeffersontown Chamber.

But what you’ll find most interesting is my guest co-host, Diane Williamson, the voice behind OnStar. Diane operates her own voice-over business in Indiana, and provides the wonderful lead-ins for this show. But it turns out that when she was a guest on Show #7 back in August 2013, she was on her way to meet the man she would quickly fall in love with. And it so happen it was also within a week of the time I met the lovely Paula for the first time. Listen in for some other odd coincidences we discovered.

LouisvilleKY’s THE WEEK: A Sweet Artistic Treat For Your Sweetie Friday, Feb 10 2017 

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 and Jeaneen Barnhart

Erika Chavez-Graziano and Jeaneen Barnhart

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 created this amazing blend of chocolates from beans that we imported and processed into chocolate,” she said. “There are six different bars. We partnered with Jeaneen Barnhart and her sister Doreen Barnhart to develop the wrappers for these bars.  The bars are so special we really wanted some special packaging.”

She said the packaging is designed to be removed, and even framed.

RUSTY SATELLITE SHOW:

Patrick Whelan and Lisa Kahl-Hillerich

Show #189 features two locals who are making waves nationally. Patrick Whelan is a recovering addict, he’ll tell you, who loves the experience of attending music festivals. But for many people doing drugs and going to shows go hand-in-hand. When Whelan got into recovery he discovered a lot of other folks were dealing with the same issue of feeling uncomfortable with the emphasis of mind-altering at shows. So he started a non-profit that provides a place for those in recovery to go during events such as Bonnaroo and the local Forecastle Festival. Last year he set up at 15 festivals around the U.S., and the number is growing this year.

Lisa Kahl-Hillerich looked up and saw her 50th birthday approaching and decided to do something different with her life. So she quit her 9-to-5 job and started exploring the world of fashion, and has created a line called RoxyNell Jeans that combines her other passions — bourbon and baseball — into a product that launches in April. Check out both interviews, plus my take on Gov. Bevin calling JCPS an “unmitigated disaster”, Jackie Green’s battle with prosecutors over his ticket for running a red light on his bike, and a U of L football player carrying around a loaded gun in his car near campus.

At Bowman Field with Tisha Gainey

On the city’s most insightful web site and podcast on restaurants and drinking, we have a number of stories worth reading, including the addition of food to the menu at Meta, the chef who’s coming to Fork & Barrel in the old Basa spot on Frankfort, and the scoop on the upcoming Gravy Cup. Plus, I wrote a guide to Valentine’s Day, so you guys don’t have to sweat the sweet stuff, just go through the list and make a reservation at a great local restaurant.

In the podcast, I talk with Tailspin Ale Fest (it’s next Saturday!) organizer Tisha Gainey, while Steve get the lowdown on Eiderdown with partners James Gunnoe and Heather Burks.

Listen in here:

 

UBER EATING:

Now, if you don’t see what you like in the restaurants listed, my pals at Uber compiled a list of the top Valentine’s Day destinations in Louisville from last year. It starts with the English Grill, at the Brown Hotel. Other downtown spots are Rivue (at the Galt House) and Proof on Main (at 21C). There’s Jack Fry’s in the Highlands and the Corner (at Aloft). It seems like the list is heavy on hotel restaurants.  The Corner has just opened last year.

Another Highlands spot, the Holy Grale, made the list, along with independent restaurants Butchertown Grocery and 610 Magnolia. 

Two bars made the list, and they’ll surprise you. The Haymarket Whiskey Bar on Market, and the famed “Mag Bar” in Old Louisville made the cut.

Wherever you’re going this weekend, be sure and take an Uber, or Lyft.

Join me on the road by signing up to drive with Uber or Lyft.
