Carolyn and Rick have been keeping a busy schedule eating and drinking around town, all so we can talk about it here on the EatDrinkTalk podcast. We start with Carolyn’s Eat of the Week, which she found in Westport Village at the Artesano Tapas spot. She gives the Ole Restaurant Group spot high marks for some succulent lunch dishes.

Rick went all the way to Nashville to discover that city’s equivalent of the ‘Ville’s own Seafood Lady. It was not fancy, just mouth-watering seafood (lobster, shrimp) served in styrofoam containers.

It’s Forecastle Week in the ‘Ville, and while concert-goers savor the sounds of the likes of Jason Isbell and Arcade Fire, many end up in the air-conditioned comfort of the Bourbon Lodge. Liquor Barn’s Brad Williams traces the evolution of the attraction, which has become a big event in the bourbon world, thanks to the keen interest in the project by founder J.K. McKnight. Williams says the Rarities Bar is a treasure to bourbon aficionados, with plenty of bottles you won’t find elsewhere.

We got an early look at Louisville Magazine’s Best of Louisville awards in restaurants, and have some nits to pick with the choices. And Carolyn had a chance encounter with Mitch McConnell, who has experienced unpleasantness on a few recent trips to local restaurants.

Thanks to our sponsor, Fourth Street Live!, which is gearing up for the Nelly concert August 3 and is welcoming the new Pizza Bar to the Street.
