    I’m beginning to think I have a problem with filling my agenda. That is, I fill it too much.

    Along with the new job (hey, CNET!), I’ve also returned to grad school this semester. And I’m still promoting Louisville Diners. And I still write on this blog. And somewhere in the middle, a husband, a dog, friends and family. So you know what that means.

  2. The $10 Challenge: Momma’s Mustard, Pickles & BBQ


    January 2, 2015 by Ashlee Clark Thompson

    Now, I have a college degree under my belt and I’m working on one more. I’m smart enough to know that there is indeed rhyme and reason that explains how the folks at Momma’s Mustard, Pickles & BBQ get the skin of the restaurant’s wings crisp and flavorful while leaving the chicken meat moist and juicy. There’s probably some science to how long to cook their pork before a set of magical hands pulls the tender meat off the bone and onto a Klosterman bun. But I’ve come to believe in a little bit of magic after several visits to Momma’s. It’s the only way to explain how this restaurant produces consistently fantastic food that charms newcomers, pleases regulars and inspires the staff to deliver warm, down-home service that matches the meals they serve.

  3. Event alert: Butchertown Porktoberfest, Oct. 11, 2013


    September 11, 2013 by Ashlee Clark Thompson

    If you have an aversion to swine, look away.
    Still on board? Then you might be interested in the first-ever Butchertown Porktoberfest from 5-10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11, at The Pointe, 1205 East Washington Street.


    Here’s a blurb about the event from the Butchertown Neighborhood Association:


    This barbeque and pork inspired culinary competition will feature live music by Hog Operation and Johnny Berry, local brew from Apocalypse Brewery and food samples from more than 15 of Louisville’s finest restaurants. …

    Participating restaurants include Atria, Cellar Door Chocolates, Decca, Farm to Fork, Harvest, Holy Grale, Jack Knife, Momma’s Pickles Mustard and BBQ, Monkey Wrench, Morels, RYE, St. Charles Exchange, Stellar Sweets, The Bristol and Wiltshire.

    Don’t fret, vegheads (I say that term lovingly) — there will be vegetarian options at the event.

    Admission is free, but bring some cash to buy samples, proceeds from which will benefit the Butchertown Neighborhood Association.
