I spent the better part of the week in Louisville, Kentucky for a meeting. We stayed at the Seelbach Hotel, one of the historic places. (Read as: smallest hotel room I have ever used in my life.) Very pretty, clean, pleasant staff, $10 a day for wifi and I was unimpressed by the pecan pie.
We had breakfast at a Panera across the street from the Convention Center. Seems they have a Horses on Parade thing going on:
We did one fancy dinner, at Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse. The bonehead that put it on the FourSquare map called it a sushi place. Sushi is on the menu, but puleeze. Several of us started with the Freddie Salad. Very basic, but the awesome smoked bacon made it fabulous. I ordered the petite filet and was not mocked or glared at for requesting it well done. And this was dessert:
Brownie base, peanut butter mousse, chocolate shell and peanut butter ice cream (made on site). Two of us couldn’t take it down. This was a serious meal and I am glad we walked over there.
Went straight back to the hotel and pretty much right to sleep.
I just drooled looking at that dessert. It looks delicious.
