Right smack in downtown Louisville is a pedestrian mall that serves office workers during the daytime, attracts a nighttime crowd to its bars and restaurants, and provides another concert venue for the city. Fourth Street Live, marked by a giant guitar, in the part of Fourth St. between Liberty Street and Mohammad Ali Blvd., is the ideal destination for a night on the town for visitors and Louisville residents as well. The location is great - just a short walk from Waterfront Park, Yum! Center, Main Street, downtown hotels, and many other downtown attractions. After you attend another event in Waterfront Park or Yum!, you might sidestep the traffic and extend the fun by hanging out in Fourth Street Live for a bit. The parking in after 6pm weekdays and all weekend is free, which is one m...

If you have a sweet tooth and want to support local business in Louisville, you can do both by taking a trip to Muth’s Candy store at 630 E. Market St. A Louisville institution since 1921, the store is family owned and operated, with nieces and nephews of the original owners making the hand-dipped candy. Muth’s Candy was founded in 1921, by Rudy Muth and his wife, Isabelle. The confections were popular in among workers in the manufacturing plants and office along E. Market. The company survived the Depression, the great flood of 1937,and the World War II years when family an d friends donated their sugar rations to keep the store alive. As the neighborhood changed, many other businesses left the area.  Now, with the resurgence of the neighborhood as NuLu, business is booming once again....

I was delighted to open my mail recently to receive an initiation to a wedding reception at the Ice House, at the old Arctic Ice Building at 217 East Main St. in the Gallery District in downtown Louisville.  The old structure was renovated as an event venue, but that is – excuse the pun – just the tip of the iceberg for development in the area. Now an event center, the building will accommodate 800 guests, but individual spaces within the center can host smaller groups: 50-75 in the conference center, 300 in the main hall, 150 on the terrace for a nice al fresco, and even 230 on the roof.  For cocktail parties and the like, where many will be standing, even more guests can comfortably mingle on multiple levels, inside and out.  The space can accommodate overflow between rooms, which are...

The public is welcome to participate in placing 25,000 flags in Louisville Waterfront Park. The flags are positioned to spell out a giant USA. These pictures show thousands of flags on the Great Lawn at the foot of the Louisville skyline. The organizers are Flags4Vets: The National Flags for Veterans' Graves Program An excerpt from the Flags4Vets website: A VETERAN IS: Someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to The United States of America for an amount of up to and including their life if needed.  That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it. One-million-five-hundred-thousand of those checks were cashed for full-value in the last 235 years and the least we can do is put a flag on each of their graves...

Our current economic times present most of us with a dilemma:  there are so many people in need, yet our own resources can't do enough to help them.  In particular, kids with cancer pull at our heartstrings.  Childhood cancer is the top cause of death among children in the U.S. and Canada, while 160,000 children worldwide are diagnosed each year.  Assuming that you can't write a big check to find a cure for children in Louisville and elsewhere, how can you help? On Sunday, March 13, Louisville will host an event to get to the roots of the problems: the annual St. Baldrick's Shaving Event will take place at Fourth Street Live . Over 100 volunteers will have their heads shaved by volunteer barbers to show their solidarity with children stricken with cancer - and to raise money for the cau...
