The city’s top restaurant and bar podcast dives deeper into some of the most compelling stories and issues in the ‘Ville. We start with confirmation that the BBC in St. Matthews has will close Feb. 5 and become Sullivan’s, a restaurant and sports bar. And Steve’s sources say that’s not the last major upheaval in the popular nightspot area — but you’ll have to wait a week to hear about it. Rick went to GLI’s Annual Meeting and listened to the latest from John Schnatter, including a new TV spot and some previews of his upcoming autobiography “Papa.” We also discuss visits to the Manhattan Project, the Mayan Cafe and the Seafood Lady.

Steve’s interview with Seviche’s Anthony Lamas includes details of what sounds like an amazing evening — when he will join Bruce Ucan of the Mayan Cafe and Fernando Martinez of the Ole Restaurant Group for a Latin All-Stars chef collaboration. Plus, Lamas is bringing back the popular Dinner and a Movie concept in time for Valentine’s Day. Local restaurant workers know all about APRON Inc., the non-profit that raises money to help workers who suffer short-term disabilities or find themselves out of work through no fault of their own, such as when their workplace catches fire. Rick talked with Dawn Bianconcini, an APRON officer, at SuperChefs in the Highlands. She said 15 employees there received help after a 2016 fire. One of the group’s biggest fund-raisers, the APRON Dine-Around, is coming up Feb. 8, and more than 40 local restaurants are donating a part of their proceeds to the cause.

Everyone loves to hear our weekly favorite eats and drinks — and we don’t disappoint this time. Steve had the opportunity to try one of the Mayan Cafe’s special 10th anniversary dishes. Rick checked out why there’s so much buzz at the Seafood Lady, sampling some Cajun crab and shrimp. A big tequila fan, Steve explained his ArteNOM full flight, while Rick sampled a Dirty Bourbon, featuring Maker’s Mark and Ballotin Original Chocolate Whiskey.

    I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested

  3. Hi! I know this is kind of off-topic however I had to

  4. Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a

    much appreciated.

  5. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to
    see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just
    so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has

    it with someone!
