living large and eating big in Louisville

O.k. Lynn's Paradise Cafe ended up being one of our destinations and we were not dissapointed. The Hot Brown was truly tasty and quite a load of food for the bucks. But I'd probably eat a shoe covered with bacon and browned mornay sauce. S.O had a fried catfish dish that he's mentioned to several friends already. Nice atmosphere - very college town feel. A keeper.

Tried Skyline Chilli for the first time. Meh. I've been reading about it for years and found it only to be interesting, not really exciting at all. I couldn't call it chilli, more like a greek spagetti sauce with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. And the pasta was tasteless mush. The hot sauce was hot but extremely vinagary. But the sweet iced tea was lovely.

Didn't get to the B-B-Q. Next time.

So what's with the Dining in Louisville guide? Good lord. I didn't see one single "review" that mentioned a particular dish. Someone is seriously slipping here.

All in all, a nice ride. And the BigLebowskiFest was a blast. Bowled all night with a bunch of stoners. Favorite moment? When the 5-O showed up at the hotel. I asked the boy's what was up and was told that there were a couple of kids up on the roof, smoking a joint,who wouldn't come down for fear of arrest, despite being told they were just concerned for their safety and they wouldn't be hauled in. One of the coppers looked around at the scene and said to his partner... "This is seriously wierd." Priceless.
