"It is possible to die from eating. But I think to be professional means you don't die." (Takeru Kobayashi)

Tomorrow morning I'm flying down to Louisville, Kentucky (the natives pronounce it "Loo-vul") to help a client at a trade show. I'll be there for three days and they're giving me $50 a day to spend on food, so I'm trying to find a few good restaurants where I can get a nice dinner on Thursday and Friday. I figure if I eat the complimentary continental breakfast at the hotel and grab something cheap and quick at the trade show, I'll have $45 left over dinner and drinks. If anyone is familiar with the area or has any suggestions, let me know.

What about this place called Genny's?

It looks like it's known for their giant burgers and fried pickles. It's only one letter off from Denny's, so maybe that bodes well for the burgers!

Btw, we booked you on the jet blue flight this morning. A man with vespa and a side car will pick you up to take you to the airport. You'll be flying cargo so wear a jacket.

Hey champ. You have to go to Genny's Diner. Their specialty is the Sweet Daddy Burger and the Hooter's there serves fried pickles. Yes, it is all phenomenal(sp). Good suggestion Liz. Be sure to check out Max & Erma's for dessert. It's a chain but they have AYCE ice cream bar for only 2.99! Oh yea, and if you are in a hurry, go to Moby Dick's for a quick bite. Trust me my friend- I only speak the truth.

Damn, looks like I'm out of a job (and sode), so I'll be spending a lot more time in Loo-Vul.

My evenings were pretty busy in Kentucky (client dinners, etc), so I didn't have as much time off as I anticipated. The places we did go were great though. Definitely have to make it back for those giant burgers (Thanks Liz and Ian). I'm a sucker for any kind of burger and when you throw the word "giant" in there...forget about it.

Ian- is there anywhere you haven't eaten?
Your fired- Jetblue kicks ass, at least it isn't Southwest
Dave- Welcome back, now post a new blog. Hehe. OK, definately need to plan the upcoming steakfest. I also need to get together with some master wing eaters for an instructional on eating them (the wings, bastards) Dave, does this sound like something you want to get in on?

When I prepared for my eventual title as the Kokomo Wing Eating Champion of Harrisburg (it's my only title, so I'm allowed to toot that horn whenever I can), I visited this site: http://www.cluckbucket.com/techniques/wingtechniques.htm

Lots of good tips there. Most are useful. Or you can a technique I call "Eating Real Fast".

Carey- I have eaten in more places than I can remember with all tpes of food. Why? Because it's great.

Annoy- I moved there my junior year of high school and then graduated from the University of Kentucky in Lexington. I now reside in DC Metro- Thank God for that. BUT KY is a scenic state with good people, great food and a safe place to raise a family. For someone my age, the food is the only thing I REALLY miss. Well that and maybe my parents! har har
