Location: The Silver Dollar
This weekend, I spent a lovely afternoon discussing the high and lows of creating online content over southern-style fair, with a handful of other Louisville social influencers. The experience was one to remember and definitely one to be repeated. Each of us brought a different view to the table -literally and figuratively- and had different opinions on what it actually means to be a blogger.
Breaking bread with individuals who each hope to get something different out of blogging was enlightening. From creating content for social media full time, to starting a podcast, and even spreading the word on how amazing the local food scene is here, everyone viewed blogging as an essential part of the process when it comes to reaching their goals.
I am so grateful for the experience, and to have a tribe of local social media mavens to bounce ideas off of and meet up with on the regular. When I first started The Chic Street, I was one of the first here locally, and had to experienced all the challenges and feats by myself. However, that has all changed now, and I am so very grateful for that.
There is no shortage of waffles in Louisville. In fact, almost every menu in the city boasts some variation of the culinary staple; each being more extravagant in its preparation than the next. However, the new local restaurant, Butchertown Grocery, has stripped the waffle down to it’s original form, topped it with a dollop of molasses honey butter and syrup, and served it up with all the flavor, and none of the fuss.
I recently went to brunch with a handful of other local bloggers and friends at the Louisville restaurant, Louvino.The local establishment’s menu boasts plates that are centered around seasonal ingredients, and classic dishes that are reworked in innovative ways.
One Louisville spot that had me at their Bacon Bruschetta- there is no actual bacon on this dish, just a generous helping of bacon jelly mixed with goat cheese, walnuts and pear tomato salad- was Craft House in Crescent Hill. The dishes are interesting, without being pretentious, and the atmosphere is includes a laid back, yet helpful wait staff, and a modern brewery-inspired decor.
Happy Friday, my style mavens, and hopefully foodies. After a little bit of thought, a lot of sushi, nights with friends accompanied by a slices of brick oven pizza, and breakfast plates featured with a side of coffee (all which have been dutifully posted on my Instagram), I have decided to add another feature to this lovely blog of mine, called Foodie Friday.
