Looking for something to do this weekend? Here are three choice dining events going on around the city:
5th Annual Louisville Brewfest
When: Sat., 4-11 p.m.
Where: Louisville Slugger Field (401 E. Main St.)
What: Celebrate local, independent
beer and businesses" at Brewfest. Don't like beer?
What's wrong with you? There'll be wine and bourbon too. Live music by Ratboy, The Kentucky City Boys and Junk Yard Dogs. Tickets are $5 for general admission, $35 for VIP, free for designated drivers.
The Kentucky Bourbon Festival
When: Through Sept. 22
What: The Kentucky Bourbon Festival wraps up this weekend in Bardstown. "Since 1776, the people of Bardstown, Kentucky have been making Bourbon," which is probably why school kids across the land study that year. The festival features bourbon, food, and great entertainment, "from black tie galas to historical tours."
When: Sat., 11 a.m.–11 p.m.; Sun., 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
Where: MoonDance Amphitheater at Beaumont Circle (1152 Monarch St., Lexington)
What: There's a time and a place for visiting Lexington, and it's usually a day at Keeneland. But this weekend there's another reason: Crave Lexington, "a free food + music makers' festival celebrating all things from scratch." There'll be food vendors, cooking demos and live music. Disclaimer: the slogan's a bit misleading—"all things from scratch" precludes weapons, explosives and illegal substances. Just so you know.
