Picked up a magazine from the mail box last night and immediately it fell open to a tidbit about Louisville being ranked as a top underrated city. Just under that, it then incorrectly said “overrated.” My smile turned to a defensive grimace. In the next sentence, however, it reverted to “underrated.” It was clear this was just a hasty proofreading or editing error, but, you know how it is when your emotions become invested. I couldn’t waste any time checking it out, and neither should you.
ShermansTravel ranked Louisville as their fifth most underrated city in their list of “some less-talked-about places with great art scenes, friendly locals, delectable cuisine, and/or rich history.” Specifically noted for Louisville were its “cosmopolitan riverfront district,” “diverse art scene,” and “growing foodie market with its own Restaurant Row.” (Hey, I told you it was Louie-ville Foodie-ville, or aren’t you reading all of my posts? )
Here’s to ShermansTravel for sharing the love of Louisville!
OK, I know that native Louisvillians don’t pronounce the name of our fair city as “Louie-ville”, but a big event this weekend warrants the title’s rhyme! World-class taste? Oh, yeah, Louisville‘s got it–just ask Emeril Lagasse.
How many of you are going to see Emeril at the Fork, Cork and Style Festival this weekend at Churchill Downs. There will be demos by many other chefs, too, but the Grand Wine Tastings might be worth the admission all on their own.
Hey, anyone get half price tickets with the Groupon earlier this week? When you hear of a good deal on a great event, let us in on it, ok?
