Taste Beer and Bourbon at the Louisville Mashed Event November 10
Who doesn’t like drinking bourbon and doing good deeds? Go to the Louisville Mashed event to do both. There will be tastings of premiere bourbons and beers, and it’s all to help a great cause.
Family Children’s Place and 502 have partnered with Louisville Mashed for this fun event. Each ticket price of $30 buys you beer tastings from the Goodwood Brewing Company and bourbon tastings from Buffalo Trace, Brown Forman and several other big-name distilleries. There will also be a silent auction full of interesting items.
Food from the Napa River Grill will also be on hand, because you can’t do all that drinking without something to nibble on. It’s all taking place at the Mellwood Art Center, a unique community gathering place in one of Louisville’s uniquely interesting neighborhoods. You’ll find the art center at 1860 Mellwood Avenue, close to Clifton. After you do all that bourbon-sipping, take a little walk through Clifton and let it wear off before you drive home. There’s no shortage of things to stop and stare at while you’re in this eclectic Louisville neighborhood.
Stroll Around in Clifton
There's a unique mix of culture in Clifton that's echoed in the unique collection of homes here. This neighborhood is right next to the downtown area, where you'll find some of the city's best theaters and museums, but Clifton has its own unique look that you can't find downtown. Instead of tall high rises, Clifton is full of historic homes, cozy shotgun houses, gorgeous condos, cute family bungalows and big Victorian mansions. In other words, there's a little bit of every kind of home here. There's a little bit of all kinds of different great stuff in Clifton.
Take part of your walk in Clifton along Frankfort Avenue, and you'll see lots of places where you'll want to stop. Browse through antique shops or step into a trendy restaurant here, shop in a locally-owned boutique or grab a cup of coffee where you can sit and watch the traffic go by. After sipping all that bourbon, a cup of coffee may be in order! Clifton is also home to the Kentucky School for the Blind and the one-of-a-kind museum located there, beautiful Bingham Park and several restaurants that are famous city-wide for their amazing food.
