Recently my work has taken me all around the midwestern part of the US, & this weekend found me in Louisville, KY. It's the second time I've visited, & this time around my sister joined me for some entertainment & food. Mostly it was about the food & booze.

The food! We actually didn't get to as many places as we'd have liked. The city kind of shut down for the Thunder Over Louisville airshow/firework spectacle of craziness, which prevented us from doing so. Next time!

Hillbilly Tea was amazing. Had some weird booze concoction (when in Kentucky...) and some great southern-style farm-to-table food. Also, I had my first real introduction to juicing. Lauren took me to LIFEbar, which is amazing. My green drink healed a hangover & a green smoothie blew my damn mind.
And it wouldn't be a trip to KY without a little bourbon, right? We started our Sunday with brunch at an old house in a cute, quaint town that was DELICIOUS. True southern hospitality, as well. Then we headed into horse country to see the wide, fenced-in fields of bluegrass & sip some bourbon at Woodford Reserve. I cannot explain how beautiful it is. We kept commenting that the countryside here is so perfect it may have all been fake. I'm no expert bourbon drinker, but L liked it quite a bit.

Until next time, gotta go BUFFALO.
