Hey you! I have another question for ya. I am celebrating my birthday with my friends this weekend. I am thinking about getting a big group together on Saturday night. Do you have any suggestions on what we could do? I know that the group likes to go out and have fun, and I'm sure that we will have dinner somewhere. Dinner suggestions are welcome as well. I was thinking Bardstown Road area, but other ideas are certainly welcome. I just want to do something FUN.
I love it when you ask me questions because they’re just the kind I love to answer!
Something fun, something fun…WELL around Bardstown Road there’s a big bar/club scene, but I usually go to either The Back Door or Baxter Bar on Saturday night. The dance floor is usually fun! Also a great dance floor: NOWHERE BAR!
HOWEVER I have heard awesome AWESOME things about Play, which is this new gay bar in Butchertown.
If you guys are brave and want to really have a good time, try the Bambi Walk. Seriously. It will be a night to (not) remember.
If you and Richard are going out beforehand, you have to try Loop 22. If everyone gets wasted and wants bar food, go to Bunz Burgerz for goodness sakes.
(I dont think Im able to comment on posts without a tumblr account, but anyway...) She's always making new and interesting things, but some of the staples are bacon cinnamon rolls, chicken pot pie (new), and the best paninis ever. The breakfast one is my favorite. And on Saturdays she brings in musicians. Check B&B's facebook page (which tumblr wont let me post) Btw, thanks for your blog leading me to Oishii Sushi. The Thunder Over Louisville Roll was very good. -Ryan
Okay, I totally have to go now. Thanks for the tip!!!!
Oishii is my JAM. So glad you went, I always love it when someone takes my recommendations.
Nope! I actually never fully started the bulletproof diet, I just did a little research and decided it wasn’t for me. I also tried the bulletproof coffee for a little bit, which was fun but ultimately also not for me.
I eat Keto/Atkins, which means I generally eat under 50 gram of carbs a day, mostly protein, fat, and green veggies. When you see sweets and carbs on my blog, those are usually stuff that my friends or my husband ate with me, and I had a bite of. My normal day consists of coffee with heavy cream, two or three veggie servings for lunch, and a big hunk of meat and salad for dinner.
This March will mark four years of eating low carb for me. As of this past summer, I’d lost 135lbs in total. I started lifting weights and gained 3 pounds, but I’m pretty sure it’s muscle, since all my clothes fit and my stomach is flatter. I’d still love to lose about seven pounds, and increase my fitness level in general.
I’ve been doing body pump, pilates and spin classes, as well as distance biking and making sure to eat 3 servings of green veggies a day.
This is probably more than you ever wanted to know about my fitness/body/weight loss/diet but it’s a huge part of my life and I try to take a the chance every so often to talk about it. Mostly because I know so many people struggle with weight and diet, and I don’t want my blog to become a trigger or an excuse.
Yeah, I blog about eating some crazy, fattening or sugary stuff. But I would strongly encourage everyone to remember that I lead a very active lifestyle (I spend about an hour a day in the gym, sometimes more) and follow a very strict diet about 85% of the time.
Hello. I am going to Indiana on Sunday, and I was wondering if you had any suggestions on somewhere to eat. I always see your posts on the doughnut place (I am dying to try it), but what about the lunch scene? I hope all is well, E. Thanks!
Oh my Lord, I love getting your questions. Feast BBQ is my current SoIn favorite but they don’t have lunch on Sundays. We just tried the Exchange and I like a great deal of it a lot (their cocktail menu is wicked awesome.) but it’s a bit on the pricey side.
Habana Blues is tapas, and it’s pretty decent. Whereabouts in Indiana will you be?
But then I remembered just now that Hammerheads is closed on Sunday, so I guess we will have to pick somewhere else. I am totally open to suggestions for places that are date material for Sunday nights. Any ideas? I don't think we're up for going downtown, but any other area would be fine.
hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm good question. I’m in the mood for Mojito’s, and it’s pretty much a great date spot because it’s tapas. I also L-O-V-E the Monkey Wrench right now (in a rut) and I’ve heard great things about The Exchange in New Albany
Valentine’s Day is my favorite holiday. EVER. It’s pink, and sparkly, and girly, and I’ve always been lucky enough to have someone I loved (be it parent or friend or sister or boyfriend or now, husband) so I just glory in it.
BUT. I am staying in this Valentine’s Day. Why, you ask? Here’s why:
A packed restaurant is super unlikely to be a restaurant where you get great food and service. Harried chefs, prep workers, waiters and bartenders cut corners, burn stuff, and drop drinks.
I usually hate special menus. They’re filled with stuff that’s been chosen to create lots of gain for the restaurant, and the chef hasn’t prepared the dishes a thousand times, so the chance of something going wrong is HIGH.
Our dinner at Hillbilly Tea last Valentine’s Day was so lackluster that it killed both my love of Hillbilly Tea and my desire to go out on Valentine’s Day.
BUT, should you wish to venture out on Valentine’s Day:
