    Brunch is wonderful on its own. Add pets, and we’ve achieved next-level glee.

    The Café, a restaurant at 712 Brent Street in Louisville, will team up with 102.3 The Max and The Flea Off Market for a Bark Brunch this Saturday, Aug. 2. It’s your chance to bring your dog to the lovely patio of The Café for a meal.

    Ahh, Ohio Valley summers. Sultry, sweaty and sticky (I’d complain, but that would go against the vow I took during the Polar Vortex to not talk bad about the heat).

    The nice folks over at Gelato Gilberto have a solution to the summer woes. The gelato shop will give away 100 pints of the dessert starting today, July 1.

  3. Save your quarters for 25-cent scoops at Homemade Ice Cream and Pie Kitchen

    Gadzooks, that's a lot of chocolate.

    The mosquitoes are humming, the air has grown stagnant and the sweat has stopped evaporating from my brow.

    Yep, it’s almost summer in the Ohio Valley.

    Now, we all promised that we wouldn’t complain about the heat after such a long, dreary winter (I wasn’t complaining in the opening — those were scientific observations). Instead, let’s cool off with the Ninth Annual 25¢ Ice Cream Social at Homemade Ice Cream and Pie Kitchen.

    From noon to 5 p.m. this Saturday, May 31, all single scoops of ice cream are 25 cents at any of the 10 Pie Kitchen locations. There is some fine print: waffle cones and all other scoops such as doubles and triples are normal price.

    So go forth with your change, friends, and treat yo’ self to a scoop. Just don’t complain about the heat.

  4. Carve out time for these free Louisville events this weekend

    Me and the Hubs at 16. We were ready to blow this popsicle stand.

    Once upon a time, I was a surly teenager. Not a problem child, mind you, just an adolescent who thought there was nothing to do in this town and couldn’t wait to get out.
    Jump ahead 10 years. Is it me, or is Louisville a lot more bustling than it used to be? There always seems to be some kind of fair or concert or free something-or-the-other that pile up and fill my Google calendar. Or maybe it’s me who has changed, and I can see how fun this city has been all along. /introspection

    Want to learn how to make your own chicken and dumplings?

    Have you ever wanted to learn something new and fun, like how to build a vertical garden or cook chicken and dumplings?

    The Louisville Free Public Library has a day of events to tickle your adventurous fancy.

    The library will present the How-To Festival at the main library branch this Saturday, May 10, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. The family-friendly event was a big hit last year. According to the library, “nearly 3,000 people learned more than 50 things in 5 hours for free.” Yep, friends — all this learning is free.

    I’m in the mood for some cake and some ladies.

    Get your mind out of the gutter, I’m talkin’ ’bout Let Them Tweet Cake.

    This event that I try to regularly attend is just a bunch of ladies (and a few gents) talking tech at a dessert shop, Sweet Surrender Dessert Café. We let our geek flags fly HIGH.

    It’s been a while since the last Tweet Cake, but this tweet-up is right on time for me. I’m excited to see old friends and meet some new ones.

    See you then, yes?

    Let Them Tweet Cake

    6:30 p.m.

    Wednesday, May 7

    Sweet Surrender Dessert Café, 1804 Frankfort Avenue, Louisville, Ky.

    Blogger’s note: Y’ALL. I have been buried in the delightful terror that is grad school. I’ll have to tell you about it one day. I’m blogging while I’m up for air.

    News

    • Louisville loves Liz and Jesse Huot. How do I know? I linked to a story about the pair behind Grind food truck opening a brick-and-mortar restaurant, and it’s the most read post EVER on the Ashlee Eats Facebook page. The couple plans to open a restaurant in the building that used to house Oasis Sushi on Preston Highway. Congratulations, you crazy kids. (Courier-Journal)
