Our 15th podcast features some great tales from the culinary trail, plus the kind of news you only hear talked about here at EatDrinkTalk. Steve and Rick start the show by talking about a decision made by one of last week’s guests, Kevin Grangier, to hire the local paper’s restaurant critic, and then progress to a serious lawsuit filed by Panera against Papa John’s. Next is a discussion of the failed West Louisville Food Port project. On a brighter note, the State Fair is open, and the guys contemplate which fried treat to order at the Fairgrounds.

The weekly favorites segment includes visits to La Rosita and the Bank Street Brewhouse, plus we reminisce about the fantastic drinks at last week’s Bourbon Mixer. Up ahead, Steve has his sights set on the Chuy’s Chile Fest, while Rick is looking forward to the Seven Sense Festival next weekend on Preston.

Steve welcomes in David Dafoe, the man behind some great local brands at Flavorman and Moonshine U. Rick visits with two of the Seven Sense Festival organizers, Chris Nelson and Shawn Steele, at the New Vintage.
