OLD LOUISVILLE SPRINGFEST AGAIN SET TO DELIGHT SHOPPERS AND TASTEBUDS ON MAY 15th AND 16TH
The Old Louisville Neighborhood Council and District 6 Councilman David James are proud to present the 4th Annual Old Louisville SpringFest on Friday May 15th from 4pm to 9pm and on Saturday May 16th from 10am to 9pm. SpringFest is held on First Street and Ormsby Avenue in historic Old Louisville and presents a wonderfully eclectic selection of vendors, artists, non-profit organizations, the Kosair Charities Kidzone (Saturday from noon-6pm) and tasty festival food choices and local food trucks.
For the adults, cocktails, live music and the now famous bourbon slushes will also be on tap. SpringFest is honored to present the internationally renowned jazz / pop singer, Karan Chavis on Saturday May 16th at 6pm. One of the hottest (and most creative) local bands, In Lightening, will perform both Friday and Saturday from 7-9pm.
In previous years, the Old Louisville SpringFest has brought between 7,000-10,000 visitors to this beautiful neighborhood the largest collection of Victorian homes in the country. The aim of SpringFest is to celebrate not only all things “Old Louisville”, but also “local” and to raise much needed funds to support local restoration and beautification projects.
Louisville's own Greek Goddess of good food has closed her St. Matthews deli to open a full service Bistro in the Toonerville area of Old Louisville. While her deli was nice it is even nicer to have a comfortable place to sit down and eat her delicious food as it is freshly prepared and at it's prime. Right now she is open for lunch only Monday through Saturday 11am until 2:30pm for lunch and 5:00pm until 9:00pm for dinner. Unfortunately her liqour license has been delayed and it may take 45 days to get it. This will NOT stop her from serving up good food and all of her Deli's food is still available to take home with you as well.
On her first day open I could not wait to get there... anticipating and watching her facebook posts with great excitement. Then it finally happened, my Mother and I had lunch there and this is going to be a really nice treat for us. I had the daily special which was a genreous bowl of avelgomono soup, a classic lamb gyro, and it included my drink. My mom enjoyed a rather large fresh greek salad... and then we also enjoyed the company of Chef Maria herself. Her Bistro is in the old Carly Rae's location on Oak Street between first and second streets. It has two separate rooms, a bar area with both four seater and two seater high top tables. And a separate dining room with four seater tables and a piano.
