Bourbon Classic 2013
March 24, 2013
Last night, thanks to support from Bourbon Country, we had the opportunity to work the first Bourbon Classic. This was part educational courses for attendees to learn about bourbon, it’s history, the distilling process and flavor profiles, and part party. The portion we attended was called the Ultimate Bourbon Experience. Distillers, bourbon aficionados and a few lucky vendors gathered to talk about, taste and eat food enfused with bourbon. In short, it was heaven. We had a great time and greatly look forward to next year.

In the South, much like our bourbon, basketball is a way of life. We love March Madness and wanted to share our excitement with you by marking down several shirts. Go to our Market page to see all our products, including shirts as low as $10.

We hope these Valentine’s Day cards make you nostalgic for those awkward grade school romances. So print and cut out the cards, write your message on the back, and share them with the class.

November Flea Off Market
November 14, 2012
60 degrees and sunny in November? Yep, we’re in Louisville. And there was no better place to be than the last Flea Off Market of the year. The market has expanded considerably since its inception last year, and because of this growth, the market was moved for the first time from S. Shelby Street to the Fresh Start Grower’s Supply parking lot.
There’s something inspiring in watching an organic agglomeration of (very) small businesses bust their humps to set up tents and displays for the chance to sell their goods and talk to folks both local and visiting. Here’s to a short winter.
Election Day 2012
The importance of voting today, and in all elections for that matter, cannot be emphasized enough. We, as citizens, help put people into office that we believe best suit of nation’s needs. If you voted today, rock this out. Print, cut out for you and your friends, and stick in a place of pride for playing your part in democracy.
This is set up for a half sheet of paper.
October Flea Off Market
October 14, 2012
South Shelby Street was hopping yesterday with so many vendors I lost count. For the second time since we have been involved, Shelby was shut down on both sides of East Market to allow for a day of shopping, eating, and drinking for Louisville natives and out-of-towners. Everything from pottery to carved bears and clothing to live chickens were available.
At these events, we talk with a lot of interesting people about bourbon and Louisville’s history. One recurring theme is the public’s desire to bring back a trolley or streetcar line. We agree. A streetcar line from 4th & Main to Churchill Downs is such a good idea, it’s already been done. Unfortunately, the last time it happened was the first Saturday in May, 1948, the day of the Kentucky Derby. We hope, like many of you, that the growth in Louisville continues, thus making public transit more of a focus. Fingers crossed that future includes some relics of our past.

Louisville had a lot to offer this past weekend. And as the official after party to IdeaFestival, NuLuFest was at the top of the list. Unless you’re a really big Carrie Underwood fan. We hawked our wares, talked with some great people, and even met our congressman (thanks, John!).
