After taking last weekend off to celebrate – by celebrate I mean sleep off all the food I consumed – I’m back with a special edition of Out N Lou. As most of y’all know, especially if you’re from Louisville, we like to drink around these parts, and this weekend there’s going to be PLENTY of drinking going on as we celebrate Repeal Day. Conveniently located halfway between Thanksgiving and Christmas — at a time when most Americans are probably not spending time with family — Repeal Daypresents a wonderful occasion to get together with friends and pay tribute to our constitutional right to drink as much as we please. Below you’ll find a list of The Kentucky Gent approved places to get your drink on, and if you’re curious where to find me I’ll be at Louisville Magazine’s SWIG tasting event (tickets here) on Friday night followed by Midwest Rum Fest on Saturday!
Toast the repeal of Prohibition with Louisville Magazine at the first annual SWIG tasting event, featuring local beers, bourbon, wine, and brandy.
Join the finest, local shops and galleries on South 4th St. for holiday shopping and celebrate National Repeal Day with bourbon tastings that are just a nickel.
And since you’ll be consuming plenty of spirits it’s probably a safe bet that you shouldn’t be driving, sober up in between stops with a ride on the trolley at the Republic Bank First Friday Trolley Hop.
