Charles Wilkerson, Project Manager at Yes Louisville, is bringing you his top 7 of Louisville!
1. Barret Bar & Grill– I love Barret Bar and Grill! I’m a big fan of going to bars and talking with friends and Barret Bar is one of the few places that you can actually have a conversation! It has a great atmosphere, a wonderful outdoor patio for the warmer months, and some of the best pub food in Louisville!
2. Beckley Creek Park– This places holds a special place in my heart since it’s where my wife and I got married back in 2016, but it’s also one of my favorite places to take photographs. I love using the beautiful landscape as a back drop for all of my clients. Beckley is also home of the “Barklands” dog park where I take my mischievous beagle, Fenway, to play with all of his dog friends
3. Nord’s Bakery– I have a love hate relationship with Nords. I love all of the fluffy and exquisite donuts Nord’s puts out. ESPECIALLY the “Maple Bacon” donut. But I hate waking up early in order to get them since they are so busy and if I wait too long in the morning to go there I may not get my favorite.
4. The Stizel-Weller Distillery– Now called the Bulleit Bourbon Experience, is one of my favorite distillery tours, and it’s right in our own backyard. Located over in Shively this distillery is where Pappy Van Winkle originally was made, but now is home to Bulleit Bourbon, one of my favorite bourbons to sip on or mix.
5. Floyd Street Stock Exchange– I love treasure hunting and shopping, and the team at Floyd Street Stock Exchange allows me to see treasures from all of over the world! They travel the world and buy interesting and unique pieces and then auction them off on the first Thursday of each month! I’ve decorated a good chunk of my house from winning at their auctions.
6. Louisville Bats Baseball– You can usually find me down at Louisville Slugger Field for most Thursday evening home games enjoying $2 beer and watching the Bats under a Kentucky Sunset.
7. Thunder Over Louisville– I get more excited about Thunder Over Louisville than July 4th. My wife and I usually go over to our friends house in Jeffersonville early in the day. We grill out, play games, drink, and then walk down to the river and watch some amazing fireworks!
