After taking in the modern art, I thought I would go for some history. Several blocks from my hotel is the Louisville Slugger Factory and Museum. I grew up on the diamond so it was a real treat to see the craftsmanship that was involved to turn a bat back in the day. The current plant is a lot more modern and the sheer amount of lumber running through this place is amazing
Now it's off to Appliance Park for the real reason I am in Louisville. Appliance Park is home to GE Appliances, and they have brought me here to learn about and demo the cooking products of their ultra-luxury brand Monogram. It will be a mix of product knowledge and hands on experience. Our group will be working with two chefs as we cook our meals over the next few days. I love to cook, so this mini cooking class will be lots of fun!
After eating so much, I could hardly keep my eyes open, I thought it would be good to hear some live music. I headed about 8 blocks from my hotel to Stevie Ray's Blues Bar. Now we all know Stevie Ray called Austin home, so the familiar Blues were a welcome sound. It was Blues Jam night, so there were 10-12 artists/bands all waiting for their turn to jump on stage for a few songs. These guys were all pretty good, and it made for a good night of relaxing. Stevie Ray would be proud to hear the Blues coming out of this bar.
