Book Signing, Thursday, May 10, 6:00 pm
Local author Kevin Gibson will be signing copies of his new book, “Unique Eats and Eateries of Louisville.” We’re on the cover, so we KNOW he’s found a bunch of great local spots….come on by to find a new favorite!
Wine Up Your Week – Mondays & Tuesdays
Begining Monday, August 28th, the start to every wine lovers week is going to get a whole lot better…While our regular wine list is a great value (bottle prices are only marked up one time instead of the industry standard of 2-3 X), we will be featuring special bottles at truly spectacular pricing on Mondays and Tuesdays.
What’s spectacular, you ask? Try LESS THAN HALF their normal restaurant price!
BTW, did you know that we can re-cork any bottle you haven’t finished and send it home with you? Since our bottle pricing is only 1X markup, and our glass pricing is bottle cost, it is ALWAYS a better deal to buy the bottle if you think you (or your party) will order two or more glasses of that wine.
Stout Fest, Sunday, November 5th, 3:00 – 8:00

- The Cliffs of Moher, The Burren, and a special tour of the spectacular but little visited Loop Head Peninsula in Michael’s home County of Clare
