A_Regular said:Well Drew, since you are in Louisville and all, how about heading down to the Brown Theatre ticket office and purchase a large block for all of us? This would save all of us from those exhorbitant TMaster fees!
Since that's not likely, can you share what the better watering holes are around the Brown Theatre district? I really don't like drinking in Hotel bars if I don't have to. You know, something with a decent jukebox and cheap beer?
I'd hate to promise tix w/no service charge and be unable to deliver. If it's not raining on Saturday, my dad is coming up to help me fix a very large hole in my yard, so I wouldn't be able to get down to the Brown (ha!) at 10. I'll let you know later in the week on that one.
Some of the better watering holes include: (from www.louisville.com/leobarguide.ihtml) My comments in italics
Akiko’s, 1123 Bardstown Road, 459-8020. Open daily 9:30pm-4am. Beer $2-$4.25. Wine $3.75 Karaoke bar/dance floor. Cool bartender: Minhee. Best karaoke bar in town
The Back Door, 1250 Bardstown Road, 451-0659. Open daily 4pm-4am. Mixed drinks: $2-$3.75. Beer $1.75-$4. Highlands neighborhood bar. Cool bartenders: Carrie, Mary Ann and Dave. Very Cheap Booze, and Jagermeister on tap
Flanagan’s Ale House, 934 Baxter Ave., 585-3700. Open daily 5pm-4am. Mixed drinks $3.50-$7. Beer $2.50-$16. Pizza pub. Cool bartenders: Joe and Dave. Best beer club in the city. The wife and I both have mugs there. Good pizza too. Our favorite place to hang out.
Magnolia Bar and Grill, 1398 S. Second St., 637-9052. Open daily 2pm-4am. Mixed drinks $2-$4. Beer $1.25-$3. Old Louisville alternative rock bar. Cool bartender: Maggie. Best jukebox in town. Good luck getting a song on in under 3 hours.
Stevie Ray’s, 230 E. Main St., 582-9945. Open Mon-Fri 4pm-?, Sat 6pm-? Mixed drinks $3-$6.50. Beer $3-$5. Blues bar; live music nightly. Cool bartenders: all of them.
Wick’s Pizza Pub, 973 Baxter Ave., 479-3000; Open Mon-Fri 11am-4am, Sat noon-4am, Sun 1pm-4am. Mixed drinks $2.50-$5.75. Beer $1.50-$4.75. Pizza pub; live music most nights. Best Pizza in town
The Mag Bar and Stevie Ray's are both downtown (But not within walking distance of the Brown)
The others are all in a small area of the Highlands, where I used to live. (Again, not within walking distance of the Brown, but definitely within a 5-10min car/cab ride).
Speaking of the bar at the Brown: Brown Hotel Bar, 335 W. Broadway, 583-1234. Open daily 3pm-2am. Mixed drinks $7-$9 and up. Beer $4-$5. Luxury hotel bar. Cool bartenders: Kim and Ellen. Yikes on the prices. I've only been there for the christmas party of a former employer and booze was gratis
Hope the info helps. Of course, these are all places I would go to (except maybe Stevie Ray's - not a real blues fan), but all of them should be realtively safe (especially the ones in the Highlands).
