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.
Hillbilly Tea heads to Portland and West End. What other Louisville neighborhoods need more local restaurants?Leave a comment

First things first. I’m talking about Portland in Louisville, not Oregon or Maine.
And a lot of business owners are starting to point their eyes at this neighborhood as the next frontier in fancy redevelopment à la NuLu on East Market Street.
Hillbilly Tea (which I reviewed back in the day — four years ago!) will open a location at 2425 Portland Ave. and a West End location at 1023 Dixie Highway, according to the Courier-Journal. The restaurant will join the good folks at Gelato Gilberto, who are setting up a wholesale operation in Portland.
Kudos to these local eateries for looking past Ninth Street to operate new outposts. It makes my heart happy to see business owners taking a chance on an area that’s not Bardstown Road or Frankfort Avenue (no shade to these areas, just sayin’ that they already have a lot).
What part of Louisville do you think needs more restaurants/coffee shops/eateries?

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.
- 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)
