There’s a dog at my heels convinced that he needs a potty break, an empty suitcase that I need to fill in the next 24 hours and a boatload of news and information that I want to share.
You could say I’m in a bit of a tizzy.
This is going to be a down-and-dirty post. There’s so much happening in Louisville and in my own life that I have to do some USA Today-style bullets to give you a rundown of all the fabulous food events happening in town and a couple of updates from Ashlee Eats HQ.
So take a deep breath, and pray that my dog, Roscoe, can hold his composure until I finish this post.

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.
5-10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11
The Pointe, 1205 East Washington Street
