Welcome to

BOURBON CITY

H

ere, Bourbon is more than just a spirit in a glass. It’s a spirit that lives in our minds and hearts, and shapes our way of life, every day. Bourbon was born and perfected in these parts centuries ago by some of the most spirited entrepreneurs to ever walk the Earth. It all started with George Rogers Clark, a surveyor, soldier and militia officer from Virginia. Clark founded Louisville in 1778 and named it for France’s King Louis XVI, in appreciation of his assistance during the Revolutionary War. At first, growth of the city was slow. Then two major factors contributed to several years of rapid growth – the invention of the steamboat and, of course, Bourbon distilleries. The first of these distilleries was built in

1783 by Evan Williams, a Wales native. By the mid 1880s, Louisville had become the Bourbon center of the world. In fact, Main Street became known as Whiskey Row because of the number of whiskeyrelated businesses centered there. By the late 1800s, Louisville was home to an office or warehouse for 75 Bourbon distilleries, making it the “Wall Street of Whiskey.” Today Bourbon is booming once again with new distilleries opening across the city, world-renowned cocktail destinations pouring divine creations and a one-of-akind, award winning culinary scene that has warmly embraced and infused this distinct spirit into countless dishes. Bourbon has shaped Louisville and created a city that combines heritage with innovation, authenticity with originality, quirkiness with friendliness in a way

that’s completely unique. It’s responsible for crafting Louisville’s own brand of Southern-ness and hospitality that’s unlike anyplace else. And you can see this spirit across Louisville. It’s the reason hundreds of thousands of people flock here every year to celebrate the one-and-only Kentucky Derby. It’s why nearly every weekend you can find a unique music, art or cultural festival unlike any other place in the world. It’s why we’re consistently voted one of the friendliest cities in America. And it’s why there’s no place in the world quite like Louisville. Yes, Bourbon is a spirit that comes in a glass, but it’s also a synonym for the “spirit” that defines our culture and compassion, our creative energy and everything we do. Thank you for coming and enjoy your visit to Bourbon City. Cheers! 1.888.LOUISVILLE 5


WHAT’S ON THE COVER? Whether you’re into history, horses, arts, Ali, adventure, baseball or Bourbon, Louisville has something for everyone at the city’s hundreds of one-of-a-kind attractions. So when it came time to decide where to shoot the cover of the 2019-20 Official Visitor Guide, we headed to one of the city’s most popular spots – the Big Four® Bridge. Louisvillians Tra’Shelle Brown and her 7-year-old son, Adonis Johnson, along with the Burton family – Shannon and Bart and teen daughters, Hailey and Hannah Voss – stopped by the favorite spot for locals and visitors alike on a sunny fall day. With bikes from Wheel Fun Rentals (you can rent a variety of options at the company, which is located at the base of the bridge), as well as local favorite sweet treats – Comfy Cow ice cream and Steel City Pops gourmet popsicles – the families enjoyed some fun in the sun while local photographer Josh Merideth captured it all on camera. The Big Four® – a bicycle and pedestrian bridge is a must-visit (and free!) place to get some fresh air and enjoy some action-packed fun, whether it’s a leisurely stroll, a jog or a bike ride. The bridge, which connects Louisville to Jeffersonville, Ind., is a two-mile, round-trip journey offering stunning views of the city, Ohio River and the internationally-acclaimed Waterfront Park. It’s even equipped with an LED lighting system that makes the bridge come aglow each night in a rainbow of colors. Before opening to the public in 2013, Big Four® was a former railroad truss bridge, completed in 1895, that got its name from the now defunct Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago and St. Louis Railway, which was nicknamed the Big Four Railroad. Today, this must-see attraction averages 1.5 million visitors per year. Here are a few more pics from our cover shoot. And be sure and flip through the pages of this guide for more information about Louisville’s unique attractions.

HOW TO DO THE

URBAN BOURBON TRAIL® (UBT)

T

he Urban Bourbon Trail® is a cocktail and culinary experience highlighting Louisville’s most celebrated Bourbon bars and restaurants. Each of the more than 40 spots along that trail has at least 50 Bourbons on its menu. (And if the establishment also serves food, you’ll find Bourbon-inspired dishes, too). The UBT passport serves as your guide to these spirited establishments. Pick one up at the Louisville Visitor Center in downtown Louisville at 4th and Jefferson streets, or at any one of the stops. At each stop, ask your bartender or server to stamp your passport (a purchase is required – it doesn’t necessarily have to be Bourbon – in order to receive a stamp). Collect stamps from six stops and you’ll be awarded a special Urban Bourbon Trail® gift. To claim your prize, bring your passport to the Louisville Visitor Center, where you’ll receive a limited-edition Urban Bourbon Trail® t-shirt. If you can’t make it in person before leaving town, you can mail your passport to the following address (also include your address along with your passport).

In the early 1900s, there were more than 50 Bourbon-related businesses along Main Street earning its name “Whiskey Row.” In 2013, it was, again, Evan Williams who ushered in a renaissance, which has now seen the opening of nine distilleries in the urban core, each one with unique visitor experiences.

ouisville’s downtown Urban Bourbon Experience now boasts more distilleries than any other city in Bourbon Country. In downtown alone, there are seven Bourbon distillery experiences within walking distance, and two more are just a short drive away. Here’s a taste of what awaits in Bourbon City.

1 ANGEL’S ENVY DISTILLERY

4 EVAN WILLIAMS BOURBON EXPERIENCE

7 MICHTER’S FORT NELSON DISTILLERY

Angel’s Envy is a labor of love from multiple generations of the Henderson family. Come to the distillery across the street from Louisville Slugger Field to get an up-close look at the entire operation, enjoy a tasting in the Finishing Room, a cocktail at the private bar and the opportunity to bottle your own port barrelfinished Bourbon.

The Evan Williams Bourbon Experience was the first distillery to open on Whiskey Row since Prohibition, signaling a whole new era in Bourbon City. Here you’ll find an immersive tourism experience that celebrates the legacy of Evan Williams, Kentucky’s first distiller and namesake of Heaven Hill’s flagship Bourbon brand, and the intertwined history of Bourbon and the Ohio River city.

Michter’s was the first Bourbon label to announce plans to build a distillery in downtown Louisville in 2011. Michter’s saved and renovated the historically and architecturally significant Fort Nelson Building on Louisville’s Museum Row (across from the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory) and opened its doors in February 2019. In addition to tours, tastings and a gift shop, the second floor of the building features a bar.

5 JIM BEAM URBAN STILLHOUSE

8 OLD FORESTER DISTILLING CO.

The Jim Beam Urban Stillhouse, conveniently located in the 4th Street Live! Entertainment district, is a micro-version of the Jim Beam American Stillhouse in Clermont, Ky. You’ll find a small working distillery, bottling line, tasting experience, and you can bottle you own Bourbon with product selected exclusively for this location.

Returning to the same building it once called home, Old Forester Distilling Co. is the culmination of a nearly 150-year legacy. On the tour you’ll follow the Bourbon-making process from fermentation and distillation, to the onsite cooperage where barrels are handcrafted and fired, then filled and aged in an on-site warehouse before being bottled.

2 BULLEIT FRONTIER WHISKEY EXPERIENCE Located in southwestern Louisville at the site of the legendary, long-closed Stitzel-Weller Distillery. Tours include a look at a craft still, a stop at the warehouse where rickhousing was invented, a time capsule look at a 1935 barrel cooperage and a visit to Master Distiller Tom Bulleit’s office before a tasting.

3 COPPER & KINGS Copper & Kings is an American brandy distillery located in Louisville’s historic Butchertown neighborhood. Take a tour of the modern, eco-friendly distillery, which includes a stunning outdoor courtyard, production floor and the maturation cellar (where you’ll find barrels aging to the sounds of rock music). Cap off the tour at ALEX&NDER, a rooftop bar boasting stunning views of downtown Louisville.

6 KENTUCKY PEERLESS DISTILLING CO. The first Peerless whiskey went into a barrel in 1889 and now the Taylor family has revitalized the brand at its distillery right off Main Street. At this state-of-the-art facility you can authentically experience the entire whiskeymaking process as the grains are milled, cooked, fermented, double-stilled and barreled as Bourbon and Rye.

9 RABBIT HOLE DISTILLERY Set in Louisville’s NuLu neighborhood, the distillery showcases the identity, tradition and legacy of Bourbon making in an entirely new way. Rabbit Hole wants guests to get lost in the magic and linger in the light-filled distillery with amazing views of the city, river, bridges and distilling operation. Guests can also indulge at a curated tasting bar. 1.888.LOUISVILLE 11

MINT JULEP BOURBON, SIMPLE SYRUP, CRUSHED ICE AND MINT

As the traditional drink of the Kentucky Derby, the Mint Julep is served some 120,000 times at Churchill Downs over the two-day period of the Kentucky Oaks and the Kentucky Derby each year. Commemorative silver and gold cups are forged each year for this annual tradition, some selling for as much as $2,500 with proceeds going to charity.

gotolouisville.com

MANHATTAN BOURBON, VERMOUTH, BITTERS

It may have been named after the Manhattan Club in New York City and first made with rye whiskey in the early 1880s, but the best Manhattan is going to be made with Kentucky Bourbon, stirred, never shaken (to keep the cocktail from foaming), served in a chilled martini glass and garnished with a lemon peel or cherry.

BOURBON SOUR BOURBON, LEMON JUICE, SIMPLE SYRUP

The Bourbon Sour is a variation of the Whiskey Sour, which is said to have originated on the British Navy’s long sea journeys, where drinking water was dicey and scurvy was a risk. They turned to whiskey and lemon juice for a solution and added sugar and water for taste.


KENTUCKY MULE BOURBON, GINGER ALE OR GINGER BEER, FRESH LIME JUICE, CRUSHED ICE

A variation on the Moscow Mule, the Kentucky version depends as much on the crushed ice as the Bourbon to make this drink a success. Some say it’s called a “mule” because of the kick the ginger delivers, and everyone will agree this drink is especially good in hot weather when serving it in a copper mug enhances the chilling effect of the crushed ice.

ith 1/3 of the world’s Bourbon being made here, it’s no secret that Louisville is a Spirited City. Order up one of these classic Bourbon cocktails during your visit. Cheers!

BOURBON, BOURBON CREAM, AMARETTO

Enjoy this signature cocktail exclusively at Louisville’s historic Seelbach Hilton, located on the corner of Muhammad Ali Boulevard and South Fourth Street, in the The Old Seelbach Bar, authentically restored to take you back to the early 1900s when notable guests included Al Capone and F. Scott Fitzgerald.

OLD FASHIONED BOURBON, SUGAR CUBE, BITTERS

One of the oldest mixed drinks, the Old Fashioned isn’t just a classic, it may be THE classic cocktail. It’s also the official cocktail of Louisville. While you can use simple syrup, the traditional way to sweeten this drink is by muddling a sugar cube with bitters and water. Muddling a cherry and orange slice with the sugar didn’t come into vogue until after Prohibition. To stick with the traditional version, use only twists of orange or lemon peel.

n a city that loves to celebrate Bourbon, it’s only fitting that Louisville has an official cocktail made with America’s Native Spirit. In June 2015, the Old Fashioned was declared the Official Cocktail of Louisville by Mayor Greg Fischer, which makes us one of the few cities in the world to have its very own libation. In fact, Louisville is so spirited about its official cocktail that the city commemorates it with Bourbon-themed events for two straight weeks every year in June during the Old Fashioned Fortnight celebration. Whether you’re visiting in June or another time of year, here are some spots around town where you can order one up. You can also take home one of these fun souvenirs celebrating the time-honored drink.

In the front window of its lobby, the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience features a giant Bourbon bottle pouring into an oversized rocks glass. If the glass were actually filled with Bourbon, it would hold 1,264 gallons – aka – 23 full barrels of Bourbon. That’s more than 100,000 Bourbon shots. If you really want to sample some Bourbon, be sure to pop into the distillery to take the tour, which includes a Bourbon tasting. 22

gotolouisville.com

FUN FACTS: The former railroad truss bridge, completed in 1895, got its name from the now defunct Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago and St. Louis Railway, which was named the Big Four Railroad. It offers breathtaking views of the river, city and the internationally-acclaimed Louisville Waterfront Park. The bridge opened to the public in 2013 and averages more than 1.5 million visits per year. A light display – featuring thousands of colorful LED lights takes place on the bridge most evenings.

The middle hoop is 11 feet, 3 inches in height and 15 feet, 4 inches in width). FUN FACTS: The iconic Barrel functions as a gathering spot for visitors to the Bourbon District. The materials used to create it are meant to reflect those of an actual oak barrel. At the entrance, visitors will find an interpretive sign giving an overview of the Bourbon industry in downtown Louisville. The sign also includes a map showing all of the Bourbon historical sites and attractions in the district.

n a city with its own Whiskey Row and an Urban Bourbon Trail, you might be surprised by the number of hidden establishments where you can go back in time and have a Prohibition-era experience. Duck into one of Louisville’s speakeasy-themed bars (if you can find the entrance), order a craft cocktail and pretend December 5, 1933, was just another day and the 18th Amendment to the Constitution was never repealed.

Bourbon

&

Biscuits

Bourbon & Biscuits hosts, Jessica, left, and Stacey, by Josh Merideth.

L

ouisville and Kentucky have rich culinary traditions steeped in Bourbon, which is the inspiration for Louisville Tourism’s video series, Bourbon & Biscuits. On the show, hosts Stacey and Jessica, share their favorite local food and Bourbon cocktail recipes. For Stacey, many of these recipes are family traditions while others are famous Kentucky staples. In each episode, Jessica creates a Bourbon cocktail to pair with the dish that Stacey is whipping up. Some of these are original concoctions, but many are classic cocktails or recipes from local bartenders. In the series, you’ll find recipes for such classics as biscuits, fried chicken, burgoo, Benedictine, Henry Bain’s Sauce and many more, alongside cocktails like Louisville’s own Old Fashioned, Mint Juleps, and “Banana’s Forester.” Here are a few of the show’s most classic Louisville recipes:

HOT BROWN The Hot Brown is Louisville’s most iconic dish. This hot, openfaced sandwich was invented at the Brown Hotel in the 1920s as a late-night dish to satisfy a crowd that had been dancing the night away in the Crystal Ballroom. Many restaurants around Louisville and Kentucky serve their own version of this dish, and you can still get the original at the Brown Hotel.

YIELDS 2 1 ½ tablespoons butter 1 ½ tablespoons flour 1 ½ cups heavy whipping cream ¼ cup Pecorino Romano Cheese, plus additional for topping Pinch of nutmeg 14 ounces roasted turkey 4 slices of Texas Toast 1 tomato, sliced 4 slices of cooked bacon Paprika and fresh parsley for garnish

First, make the Mornay sauce. In a heavy sauce pan, add butter and simmer over medium heat. Once melted, add the flour and whisk until well combined, but don’t let it brown. Add the cream and bring back to a simmer until thickened (about three minutes), 26

gotolouisville.com

stirring constantly. Once thickened, remove the sauce from the heat and add ¼ cup of the cheese. Stir until melted and then add a pinch of nutmeg, and salt and pepper to taste. For each Hot Brown, you will layer the ingredients in an au gratin dish. First, two pieces of toast, then two or three slices of tomato and turkey, and then cover in Mornay sauce. Top with some more cheese and put the dish under the broiler until lightly browned and bubbly (about five minutes). Finish the dish with a pinch of paprika, two bacon slices and fresh parsley.


THE SECRET TO AN AROMATIC JULEP IS TO “SPANK” THE MINT – DON’T SKIP THIS STEP!

MINT JULEP The mixture of four simple ingredients (Bourbon, mint, sugar and water) has been a first-Saturday-inMay tradition since 1938. More than 120,000 Mint Juleps are served every year during the weekend of the Run for the Roses. 1 ounce of mint simple syrup 2 ounces Bourbon Fresh mint

Pack a julep cup – preferably silver or pewter – full of crushed ice. Strain in the mint simple syrup (not getting any of the mint leaf) and add the Bourbon. The secret to an aromatic julep is to “spank” the mint – don’t skip this step! Garnish your julep with the mint. MINT-INFUSED SIMPLE SYRUP 1 ½ cups packed fresh mint leaves 1 cup sugar 1 cup water

Bring water to a boil and add sugar – stir to dissolve. Toss in your fresh mint and stir. Allow to cool and infuse the mint flavors before you add to your cocktail. 1.888.LOUISVILLE 27

BENEDICTINE SPREAD Miss Jennie Benedict invented her savory spread in a one-room kitchen in the family backyard around the turn of the 20th century. She famously served it to Louisville high society and workers alike, earning it her namesake years later. Now the scrumptious spread and finger sandwich filling is a menu must-have for any Kentucky host worth their salt. It’s almost a guarantee that it will be served at baby and bridal showers throughout the Bluegrass state, as well as Derby parties and spring luncheons. 8 ounces of cream cheese (softened or whipped) 3 tablespoons of cucumber juice 1 tablespoon onion Pinch of cayenne pepper ½ teaspoon salt Drop of green food coloring (optional)

Grate the cucumber into a bowl (seeds and all). Press through a fine mesh sieve with a spatula into a bowl until you have 3 tablespoons of cucumber juice. Repeat the process with the onion, or if you prefer to have some texture, just finely mince. Add the cucumber, onion juice, cayenne and salt to the cream cheese and mix with a spatula. For a more festive spread, add a drop of green food coloring and thoroughly combine. Keep chilled until you’re ready to serve. Serve on thinly sliced, crustless bread as finger sandwiches or with bacon and tomato for an upgraded BLT.

OLD FASHIONED Legend has it that the Old Fashioned was invented at the Pendennis Club, a private club still in operation in Louisville. A guest at the bar ordered a cocktail but warned the bartender that he wasn’t a fan of Bourbon. Not wanting to serve a non-Bourbon drink in Louisville (it is Bourbon City after all), the bartender created a drink that ended up being a huge hit with the customer. And though similar versions were possibly being mixed in the same time period, the now traditional Bourbon cocktail is said to have been popularized by Pendennis club member and master distiller, Colonel James E. Pepper, who introduced the cocktail to the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City. It was also the first documented proof of a recipe 28

gotolouisville.com

being called the “Old Fashioned” versus any drink made in the “oldfashioned way,” which was mixing spirits with sweetener and fruit. Louisville laid claim to this spirited history in 2015 when the city’s Mayor proclaimed the Old Fashioned “Louisville’s Official Cocktail.” 2 ounces fine Kentucky Bourbon ½ tablespoon sugar A few drops of water 2 dashes Angostura bitters 1 orange wedge 1 cherry for garnish

In an Old Fashioned rocks glass, add an orange wedge, bitters, sugar and water. Muddle well. Add ice and bourbon and stir. Garnish with a cherry.


1.

LIVE HORSE RACING – Horse racing isn’t just underway on the first Saturday in May. Churchill Downs plays host to the Spring, September and Fall Meets. Grab a seat on the swanky Millionaire’s Row, stroll through the Paddock to get an up-close view of horses or experience horse racing under the stars during one of the Downs After Dark events.

2. TOUR THE KENTUCKY DERBY MUSEUM – Located next to Churchill Downs, it’s open year-round. You’ll be planted in the middle of the Derby action while viewing the 360-degree film, “The Greatest Race.” You can also take a behind-the-scenes tour of the racetrack on one of the museum’s various tours.

3. DRINK A MINT JULEP – Churchill Downs may serve more than 120,000 Mint Juleps over Derby weekend, but the “Official Cocktail of the Kentucky Derby” isn’t just available on the first Saturday in May. Order one up at the track during other live racing days, or anytime at one of the more than 40 stops along Louisville’s Urban Bourbon Trail.®

4. EAT DERBY-PIE® – Yes, we even have a dessert that celebrates the iconic event. The local Kern’s Kitchen family business has kept the recipe (featuring chocolate chips and premium walnuts) top secret for more than 60 years. Slices are available at a variety of local restaurants. Or buy an entire pie to take home with you from A Taste of Kentucky.

DERBY YEAR-ROUND

T

he Kentucky Derby is truly the “Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports.” Basketball legend Magic Johnson once referred to the twoweek Kentucky Derby Festival as “the Super Bowl and Mardi Gras rolled into one.” For many folks, attending the Kentucky Derby is on their bucket list. However, if you can’t join us for the Run for the Roses on the first Saturday in May, here’s how you can still enjoy a Derby Experience all year long in Louisville.

5. DERBY CITY GAMING – Louisville’s only gaming facility opened in the Fall of 2018. Churchill Downs’ Derby City Gaming features 900 state-of-the-art historical racing machines. You’ll find a rose motif on the lobby’s ceiling (red roses are the official flower of the Derby), images of iconic Oaks and Derby winners, and Triple Crown winners’ names etched into the flooring. It’s open seven days a week, including 24 hours on Friday and Saturday nights.

6. IT’S ALL ABOUT THE OUTFIT (ESPECIALLY THE HAT!) – We like to refer to the Derby as Louisville’s version of the Oscars red carpet. And it’s definitely all about the hat. Pick out a chic chapeau or fashionable fascinator at one of the city’s locally-owned boutiques. And fellas, don’t forget your bowties and seersucker suits. Even if you can’t make it to Derby, you can still dress to the nines during the other live race meets at Churchill Downs.

MUHAMMAD ALI CENTER A vision

B

orn Cassius Clay on Jan. 17, 1942 in Louisville, Muhammad Ali proclaimed his love for his hometown to a roaring crowd here in 1978. It was in Louisville that Ali honed his ability as a boxer, and it was here he returned to after winning Gold in the 1960 Rome Olympics. Ali came home often after capturing the title of Heavyweight Champion of the World, and following his retirement from boxing, he was involved with the vision and direction of the Muhammad Ali Center. And it is here that “The Greatest” has his final resting place. A global icon was lost with the death of Ali on June 3, 2016. While loved and revered throughout the world, Ali always considered Lou-

A week-long tribute and memorial in Louisville saw residents line miles of a funeral procession through city streets while showing throngs of international visitors the city’s signature hospitality. People are still coming to Louisville from around the globe to pay their respects and celebrate the legacy of Ali. Having lived most of his young life in Louisville, the city is full of landmarks that are the backdrops of the events and experiences that molded Ali into a man who was both loved and respected as a legendary sports figure, as well as a man of true principle.

The six-story multicultural center and award-winning museum features exhibits spotlighting the six core values Ali strived to live by throughout his life: Confidence, Conviction, Dedication, Respect, Giving and Spirituality. Highlights include a mock boxing ring, Ali boxing memorabilia, a theater that screens a short film showcasing Ali’s life, and a full-sized boxing ring where a large projector displays “The Greatest,” his signature fight. 144 N.

MUHAMMAD ALI CHILDHOOD HOME Ali lived in the West Louis-

ville house during his childhood in the 1940s through the early 1960s. It was renovated in 2016 returning the home’s exterior to its original pink state.

COLUMBIA GYM Ali first learned to box at the Columbia Gym, located in the basement of the Columbia Auditorium, which is now part of Spalding University. He was invited by Joe Martin, a police officer who also worked as a boxing coach. Ali met Martin as a young teen when he reported his red bicycle stolen. He never recovered the bike, but his fate was sealed with that encounter. The gym, where Ali first practiced his cutting jabs and fast footwork, is still used by Spalding athletes today. 824 S.

ALI MUHAMMAD StoryWood Wearables

A

li Muhammad is an award-winning entrepreneur, business owner and the founder of StoryWood Wearables, which features unique bowties and fashion accessories handcrafted from reclaimed and historic wood. With wood sourced from Whiskey Row, the legendary Secretariat and Man O’ War barns and the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory (using reclaimed bats), his inventory is expanding and is now found in 14 stores and online at storywoodwearables.com. SHOPPING: My favorite place to shop is CRAFT(s) Gallery and Mercantile to see their collection of contemporary and traditional art. They have something for everyone, including paintings, ceramics, glass, fiber art, folk art and more. EXPERIENCE: Everyone who comes to Louisville should experience Main Street. Go to a AAA Louisville Bats baseball game or watch our Louisville City FC soccer team, who are USL champs two years in a row. Next, visit Whiskey Row on Main Street and all that it has to offer like Sidebar or Duluth Trading Company. Visitors should include a tour of the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory and Art Eatables. Visitors also need to see the start of the Bourbon Trail at the Frazier History Museum. Last but not least, I hope they visit our shop, StoryWood Wearables, at 2418 West Main St.! FAVE THING ABOUT LOUISVILLE: Of course, it’s the people! Louisvillians are extremely creative, and Louisville is the best place to start a business. The city and community are groomed to love, accept and support new local businesses.

orn in Henderson, Ky., where his great-greatgrandfather Henry Kraver first opened Peerless Distilling Company, Carson spent his formative years in Louisville. Today, he has a hand in every aspect of operations at Peerless and pours his heart into every detail. He takes great pride in the culture of the distillery, which fosters a close-knit, mom-andpop feel. Perhaps most of all, Carson is passionate about collaborating with his father, who first proposed the idea of reviving the family business, and sharing the family’s legacy with his own kids. EAT & DRINK: Louisville is a world-class culinary destination featured on “Top Chef.” It was also named in the Top 10 Best Food Cities by National Geographic. There is something for everyone. Looking for steaks? Go to Jeff Ruby’s. Looking for seafood with a view? Go to River House. Want a cocktail, great dinner and to finish with some Peerless ice cream? Have dinner at Butchertown Grocery. EXPERIENCE: The Frazier History Museum is home to the start of the Bourbon Trail, which is the perfect introduction to the Bourbon District. On Museum Row/Whiskey Row with the Frazier Museum is Kentucky Peerless, Michter’s, Old Forester, Evan Williams and Angel’s Envy. ATTEND: The most obvious answer is go to the Kentucky Derby, which you should do at least

once, but I would definitely recommend Bourbon & Beyond. It’s a weekend-long music festival in September where different distilleries are present and seminars are held.

TEDDY ABRAMS Louisville Orchestra

T

eddy Abrams is the widely-acclaimed conductor who has served as the music director of the Louisville Orchestra since 2014. An advocate for the power of music in a community, Abrams has fostered collaborations with organizations in

Louisville and beyond and has instituted many educational and outreach programs to create a culture of the arts in our city. He has led orchestras and performed as both clarinet soloist and pianist all over the United States. He is featured in the web series Music Makes a City Now, conducted the Indianapolis Symphony in a PBS special and was assistant conductor to his long-time mentor Michael Tilson Thomas for the “YouTube Symphony” project. Abrams studied at the Curtis Institute of Music and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. EXPERIENCE: Everyone should experience the Humana Festival of New American Plays at Actors Theatre. Also, Louisville Orchestra’s Festival of American Music, where we experiment with the future of music! Outside of performing, distillery tours are always a great time. ATTEND: Forecastle is without a doubt the best music festival in the world and should not be missed. Also, GlitterTitz at Zanzabar on Saturday nights is the best dance party you’ll find anywhere. FAVE THING ABOUT LOUISVILLE: We don’t just call ourselves a “compassionate city.” We live it and believe in what compassion can do for our community. Also, this is a place where a great aspirational idea can become reality with energy and enthusiasm.


DAMARIS PHILLIPS Celebrity Chef

I

mpressing judges with her fresh take on Southern cuisine, and winning over the audience with her impeccable charm, Southern spitfire Damaris Phillips outlasted 11 rival competitors to win season nine of “Food Network Star.” Currently Damaris is the co-host of “Southern and Hungry.” In 2017, “The Bobby and Damaris Show,” which she co-hosts with Bobby Flay, was nominated for a James Beard Award. Her first cookbook “Southern Girl Meets Vegetarian Boy” was released in 2017. EAT & DRINK: I always send people to Bar Vetti for the homemade pasta; Mayan Cafe for the Lima beans; Con Huevos for the chilaquiles; Queen of Sheba for out-of-this-world Ethiopian food; Decca for a cocktail in the cellar; Muth’s Candies for the modjeskas; Gralehaus for the fried bologna sandwich; Highland Coffee for the best coffee and plant-based treats; Odeon for a Kentucky Mule; Morris Deli for a country ham sandwich; Franco’s for a classic meat and three; Jeff Ruby’s for the peanut butter pie; Silver Dollar for fried pickles and a fine selection of Bourbon; Hell or High Water for any Prohibition-style cocktail; Taj for the frozen slushie of the day; Couvillon for Louisvillemeets-New Orleans fare with a great outdoor

space; Hammerheads for a hole-in-the-wall BBQ experience; and Frankfort Avenue Beer Depot for the fried green beans. ATTEND: The Humana Festival of New American Plays is a great event, as are the Waterfront Wednesday concerts during the warm months. I also love the annual Jane Austen Festival held at Locust Grove in July! FAVE THING ABOUT LOUISVILLE: I love the people that this city attracts. I love that the city supports and encourages the arts, diversity and tradition. I love that everything is “15 minutes away” and everyone you meet is your future best friend.

NICHELLE THURSTON The Seafood Lady

N

ichelle Thurston has earned her crown as Louisville’s Seafood Lady. From her front porch, cooking family recipes for neighbors lined up around the block, to two restaurants (and growing), a popular food truck and a coveted thumbs up from the Food Network’s Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” she provides a taste of the Deep South for hungry guests. Fans come from across the nation to sample her food, all of which is dusted with a secret recipe spice, at Seafood Lady restaurants in Old Louisville (105 W. Oak St.) and in South Louisville (3201 Fern Valley Road). EAT & DRINK: I have to suggest you come see us at The Seafood Lady! We are one of the only places you can find real Gulf Coast-style seafood in Louisville. I recommend the crab – it’s the sweetest you can taste in this area – and the crazy mound of Chee-Sea Cajun fries, topped with snow crab and white cheese. When I need another restaurant, I head to SuperChefs. My favorite, not surprisingly, is their seafood pizza, loaded with shrimp, crab crawfish and lobster. SHOP: I’m all about keeping my shopping local. I love Rebellious Kouture. It has great items for the ladies from dresses, gowns, party outfits, jewelry and purses. I get all my knickknacks and party clothes from there when I occasionally step out of the kitchen. EXPERIENCE: You need to explore the many learning opportunities that Louisville offers to honor Muhammad Ali. You must visit the Muhammad Ali Center, but also take time to walk the path of all the places that meant something to him in Louisville. It’s personal to me because he represents someone who took a stand for something, overcame obstacles and succeeded. Of course, you should not miss a visit to Churchill Downs!

CHRIS HARTMAN Fairness Campaign

C

hris Hartman is the first executive director of Kentucky’s Fairness Campaign, which works statewide for LGBTQ rights. In the past several years, he has helped more than triple the number of Kentucky cities with anti-discrimination Fairness Ordinances, including the state capital Frankfort, Appalachian coal town of Vicco and Kim Davis’ hometown of Morehead. He previously worked as Congressman John Yarmuth’s campaign press secretary, an AmeriCorps VISTA and a touring Shakespearean actor and improviser. EAT & DRINK: I’m almost vegan, which wasn’t easy 20 years ago in Louisville, but is a total breeze now. I can’t possibly list all my favorites, but a few are Morel’s Café for the Farby Meal, La Que for Pad Se Ew, China Inn for Tofu Mei Fun and so many Indian restaurants – Kashmir, Dakshin and Bombay Grill. All three Wiltshire restaurants – especially at the Speed Art Museum – will delight. Honorable mentions go to the newly opened V-Grits, with killer vegan mac n’ cheese, the irresistibly hot tofu at Royals, faux chicken at Joella’s and Vietnam Kitchen for absolutely anything. SHOP: We’ve got so many shops that keep it local, Louisville and weird. LOUaBull and Regalo for unique, quirky, queer finds; Edenside Gallery on Bardstown Road for my father’s hand-turned wooden bowls and other amazing local artists’ work; and The Great Escape, Book & Music Exchange and Heroes Comics and Gaming for all your nerdy needs. ATTEND: Both LGBTQ Pride Festivals in Louisville are huge and well worth making the trip to experience. June’s Kentuckiana Pride Festival and March at the Big Four Bridge is the longest-running in the state and brings out a fun, diverse group of folks. September’s Louisville Pride Festival on Bardstown Road captures the creative, independent spirit of the Highlands – both are unforgettable! Actors Theatre’s Humana Festival of New American Plays also shouldn’t be missed for some of the best, most cutting-edge and innovative theater.

WHAT’S NEW AT THE

LOUISVILLE ZOO by Laura Ross

YEARS 5 0 COUNTING A N D

The Louisville Zoological Gardens, Kentucky’s state zoo, opened to visitors in 1969.

COLOBUS CROSSING The Colobus Crossing exhibit takes visitors to Kenya to meet the black and white colobus monkeys and Schmidt’s red-tailed monkeys. Three Schmidt’s red-tailed monkeys from the National Zoo in Washington, D.C., and Florida’s ZooTampa, will take up residence at the Louisville Zoo, along with four male colobus monkeys from Columbus (Ohio) Zoo. Since colobus monkeys spend almost their entire lives in the trees and rarely touch the ground, the new exhibit features “colobridges” like ones in Kenya, that are passageways built above ground to provide the wildlife safe travels over roads and human paths. Visitors can watch the monkeys traverse the colobridges and guests visiting the Zoo’s African Outpost can enjoy a scenic view of the habitat.

THE ZOO OFFERS SOMETHING FOR VISITORS OF ALL AGES ...including multiple playgrounds, several gift shops, rides, and attractions including the Splash Park, Conservation Carousel, ZooTram Shuttle, Zoo trains, adventure ropes courses, camel rides and the BOMA African Petting Zoo.

he Louisville Zoological Gardens, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2019, welcomes upwards of 900,000 visitors each year. “We are thrilled three generations of people who love their zoo and who have made great memories here can celebrate our 50th birthday all year long, with many different celebrations,” says John Walczak, executive director of the Louisville Zoo. The Louisville Zoo is home to more than 1,200 animals on 134 acres of natural settings covering zoogeographical areas and habitats, including: • Africa • Islands • New World Exhibits (North, Central and South America) • Australian Outback • The HerpAquarium • The Metazoo Education Center • Gorilla Forest* • Glacier Run* In early 2019 the Zoo will open two new exhibits, The Snow Leopard Pass

and Colobus Crossing, which will give Zoo visitors a peek into the costal forests of Kenya and the mountainous regions of Nepal. It’s all part of ongoing improvements based upon the Zoo’s recent master plan, which focuses on expansion of species offerings, conservation partnerships, education, and engagement innovations and more.

View some of the wildest birthday cakes you’ve ever seen and vote for the best design. Meet new animal mascots, including a new rhino and giraffe, and grab photos with guest characters: elephant, lion, eagle and more!

SNOW LEOPARD PASS Snow leopards, which are native to central Asia and the Himalayas, have been a part of the Zoo’s vast landscape since the early 1990s, but the expansion of Snow Leopard Pass will offer a more spacious and dynamic habitat for the big cats and will allow guests intimate views of the leopards, which will include a new passageway that allows the leopards to walk above visitors’ heads. An adjacent PNC Club House gives children opportunities to watch the snow leopards just beyond the classroom windows. And, a slide lets children climb and play just like the snow leopards, which entertains both kids and leopards alike. “Kids climb the slide and are nose-to-nose with the snow leopards,” says Walczak. “Then, they slide down and maybe even have the leopard ‘chase’ them down the slide in front of a 15-foot window.”

n 1870 Old Forester became America’s “First Bottled Bourbon” – the first bourbon to be sold exclusively in sealed glass bottles to ensure quality and consistency, an innovative approach at a time when whiskey was commonly sold by the barrel. In 2018, Old Forester Distilling Co. returned home to Whiskey Row and opened at 119 W. Main St., housed in the same building that the brand called home from 1882 – 1919. On Fridays and Saturdays, the barrels built and filled in the cooperage are rolled out onto Main Street with a “Whiskey Drummer” heralding the rolling of whiskey barrels onto a vintagestyle barrel truck. Tours include viewing the distillery operation and, for guests 21+, tasting the finished product.
