The job was at the Kentucky Convention Center, in the heart of downtown. I stayed across the street in a Hyatt. Luckily there a good amount of places to spend some time at in the area.
A cool little area downtown is called 4th Street Live. It's a couple of blocks sectioned off with a cover to protect you from the weather that is stacked with bars and restaurants. I ate at a couple of places there over my few days that really weren't all that memorable.
I did some research and found the a local brewery had a bar just down the street. It's a beer maker I was familiar with and really like one of their brews, the Bourbon Barrel Stout. So one night it was off to Bluegrass Brewing Company. I slammed down a few new to me brews along with a couple of old favorites. Add in a tasty BBQ Pizza and it was a nice evening.
My last day was fairly uneventful. Didn't really have time to do anything afterwards. I was tired and felt like crashing for the night. The next day it was back to the Fort.
A short trip to town pronounced six different ways. Unfortunately I didn't get away from the downtown area. In fact, I was hardly able to get away from the block where I stayed and worked. But it sure seems like an enjoyable little city.
Damn! I forgot to have mint julep!
