Readers Vote: A Whopping 3 Places to Eat in the Real Dead Zone (2-5 a.m.)

View as Map

Last week Eater Louisville asked where can you eat in the real dead zone (2-5 a.m.). "Louisville is a shit hole after 11pm," read one response. It was an opinion supported by the answers we received: only three venues were named. (Responses where the commenter confused a.m. for p.m. were discarded. Reading comprehension people!) Here are all three answers, mapped out in their late-night glory. Did our readers miss a spot (kinda hoping so)? Give us your suggestions in the comments.
