Steve and Rick get together to compare notes after a week of eating and drinking their way through a flurry of soft openings and special events. It all started with the grand Apron Inc. fund-raiser at The Olmsted, where no chef sample was turned away by the intrepid investigators of fine food. Also mentioned in the podcast are culinary adventures at Harvest, Slice, Noosh Nosh and Asiatique, while the soft openings at SET on Fourth Street and the Red Barn Kitchen (in the former Joe’s Older Than Dirt) were spectacular starts for spots that will likely become staples on the ‘Ville’s dining scene.

Finally, there was a chance to sample the new lunch options at Copper and Kings in Butchertown, topped off with delicious dessert from Louisville Cream.

This week’s interviews feature the leaders of the Bourbon Brotherhood and Whisky Chicks organizations. Bruce Corwin and Linda Ruffenach are teaming up for an August fund-raiser at The Gillespie that will be a bourbon connoisseur’s dream. Steve sat down with the legendary Dean Corbett to talk about the changing tastes of consumers and how he’s adjusting to them.
