Louisville with the Wilburys

without comments

Are you making the road trip to Louisville and putting together an awesome playlist (or mix tape/CD for those less-advanced technology-wise). Well I heard this song this weekend, and forgot how awesome it is. Too bad the band only put out two albums, one of those after Roy Orbison died. So enjoy and add this to your Louisville mix.

Louisville. Again.

without comments

A bird's eye map of Louisville from 1876. No, the show hasn't been there that long.

I know it’s only April, but I’ve been thinking a lot about the fall lately, especially this year’s GIE+EXPO and GIC in Louisville.

Registration for the EXPO is open, and you can book your rooms for the GIC already, too. We’re working with both groups on developing some of the programming for the show and conference this year, and they should be great events.

(Register by May 31 and you could win tickets to the Quaker State 400 in Sparta, Ky.)

One thing I hear from a lot of contractors and suppliers is that the show has been in Louisville for so long, they’re tired of going. I can understand that — it’s tough to head to the same city and the same hotel and the same bars and restaurants to see (pretty much) the same people every year.

But, if you look a little beyond Fourth Street, there’s a whole lot of cool stuff to see.

Like fast horses? Lay a few two-dollar bets at the Fall Meet, which opens Oct. 30. Like fried chicken? Visit Col. Sanders grave and leave a spork. Like really good meat? Book a table at Proof on Main.

Coming down to the show in the fal is a great way to learn more about what’s new in the industry, network with your colleagues and develop your skills. Don’t think you’ve seen everything the show – or Louisville – has to offer.
