When: Through Sunday
Where: New Albany, Ind.
What: Food booths are operating all weekend as part of New Albany's Harvest Homecoming. Louisville Family Fun recommends the New Albany Lion's Club ribeye steak sandwich. Also, Starship is performing Friday night. Sure, that concert has nothing to do with food or drink, but it demands a mention. Because New Albany was built on rock and/or roll.
