EDT Podcast: Going Down One for Bourbon
Welcome to the city’s only podcast devoted to its restaurant and bar scene, where this week Carolyn asks Rick for his opinion on porn — food porn, that is. The practice of taking photos of your food and posting on social media is prevalent enough that Yelp! has a list of the most popular local spots to do it.
Carolyn’s Eat of the Week comes from The Goat, the popular East End restaurant located in an apartment complex that’s getting rave reviews. Rick brings back a story from the Google cafeteria in Boulder. And here’s a scoop – Carolyn has the news that Jeff Brantley, our guest form the Logan Street Market a few weeks back, has settled on Bramble as the name of his new restaurant.
Our guest is Nick Swope, GM at Down One Bourbon Bar, who finally puts to rest the mystery of why the newly-remodeled hotspot was closed when Rick visited the night of the Rod Stewart show at the Yum! Center. Beyond that detail, Nick tells us about the success of Down One’s 30-minute lunch guarantee, the weekly Bluegrass set with HIckory Vaught, and why it’s always Bourbon Month there.
At Fourth Street Live!, there’s a fitness event and the upcoming Strassenfest to attract visitors, in addition to the venue’s outstanding restaurants and bars. Also this weekend, there’s the Kentucky Bourbon Festival in Bardstown to keep bourbon lovers busy.
