It looks like there may be a chance of thunderstorms Friday, currently the national weather service suggests those will be late in the evening.
Hope to see you in the neighborhood.

I live in the Clifton Neighborhood of Louisville. It’s a neighborhood bounded by Brownsboro Road on the north, Ewing Avenue on the east, I-64 on the south and Mellwood Avenue on the west. (However, I like to claim all the way east to Bayly—that way I can count a Heine Bros. and a Carmichaels Bookstore as part of the neighborhood. There are many reasons you should consider living in (or at least visiting) the Clifton neighborhood. One of those reasons is food:
1. Coffee Shops.
I can walk to four different terrific spots for coffee: Heine Brothers, Java Brewing Company, Caffé Classico, and Nancy’s Bagels. (If you like dark roast, get a cup of Nancy’s Thundermuck. It is delightful.)
2. Restaurants in general.
We’ve got it all here in Clifton. We have high end spots like Volare, Basa and Bourbon Bistro. We have an excellent Asian Vegetarian restaurant, Zen Garden. North End is eclectic, delicious, and Kentucky Grown. We’ve got two great pizza places, Clifton’s and Fat Jimmy’s. And then there are the more exotic: Sari-Sari (Filipino) El-Mundo (Mexican), Shiraz (Middle-Eastern), and the Grape Leaf (Greek).
Now that spring has come, almost every Clifton restaurant and coffee shop offers outdoor dining. Come join us for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We'd love to see you.

The team, a farm team for the Cincinnati Reds, and the field itself are a wonderful part of Louisville – particularly in the spring. (In the heat of the summer, I’m not as big of a fan of outdoor spectator sports.) That said, I would suggest anyone visiting Louisville during baseball reason take an afternoon or an evening to attend a game. I honestly don’t think there’s a bad seat in the house. There’s a merry-go-round and other attractions to keep the kids happy, and a microbrewery just outside (Brownings) that you can enjoy before or after the game.
These are a couple shots of the game and the field that I took last night.
