Holly Hill Inn, 426 North Winter Street, Midway, Kentucky -859 / 846 - 4732. Located in Midway, a good 25 minutes drive from Lex, Holly Hill Inn offers fantastic price-fixed menus in a charming former B and B. They change their menus once a month. Normally I don't list places like this on this sight, but a 35 dollar prix fix meal is hard to beat anywhere else.  Great food and a great deal.

Covington, KY

Louisville, Kentucky

The Record Label
Initial records has a website that lists a lot of local music shows that aren't listed anywhere else.

The local Alternative Paper is The
Louisville Eccentric Observer

The hip part of town is the Bardstown Road area.  Its loaded with all your standard vintage clothing shops, record shops, bars and clubs.

One cool record store is
EarX-tacy.  Its at 1534 Bardstown Road, just south of Eastern Parkway.  502-452-1799

A pretty decent place to stay is the Exective West Hotel.  Its very convienient to the airport, downtown, Bardstown Road, Churchill Downs areas, and is very reasonable.  They have a hotel limo that will take you on short journeys if you don't wish to drive.  The pool area could use a hot tub, and the exercise equipment was lacking, but they do have an unusual bar in the lobby and chalk blackboards in the Men's room stalls to discourage graffiti.  They are also spitting distance from
Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom and their wonderful Thunder Run coaster.

Another place to stay I saw an amusing ad for, the Red Carpet Inn advertises $37.88 singles and includes free HBO and Playboy Channel, for you soft porn junkies.  1640 S. Hurstbourne Pkwy at I-64.  502-491-7320

We had the most amazing food at Vin Stantens BBQ, about 20 minutes outside of Louisville on route 42.  They had incredible ribs, slaw, beans and they had oreo pudding!!! Yum.  9219 US Highway 42, Prospect, KY-502-228-7427.

Another good place was Kaelins, where the cheeseburger was supposedly invented.  I dont know about that, but it was very tasty.  1801 Newburg Road not far from the Bardstown Road area.  502-451-1801.

Kunz's Fourth and Market, Louisvilles Oldest Restaurant, 115 4th Avenue, 502-585-5555. Lo

Nightlight
O'Malley's Corner, 2nd and Liberty, 502-589-FUNN-Multi Room club with all different types of music from country to dance to Karaoke.
