Holidays Around the World at The Frazier History Museum

Sometimes it is easy to get caught up in the traditional holiday scene, the one that you have grown accustomed to for much of your life. Occasionally though, it's nice to experience a tradition that is unlike your own and that is exactly what the Frazier History Museum is hoping for this holiday season.

"Holidays Around the World" is an annual, multi-cultural tree display that celebrates holiday traditions found throughout Louisville's diverse communities! These traditions include trees decorated as they would in countries that observe Christmas, to cultural displays showcasing other holidays observed around the globe throughout the year. Both visually stunning and educational, this exhibit runs through New Years!

Louisville is 2013's Top Travel Destination

This week Louisville was named by travel gurus at Lonely Planet as the top travel destination of 2013! What led to their decision? They called Louisville "a lively, offbeat cultural mecca on the Ohio River"!

Possibly dubbing Louisville the "new Portland", Lonely Planet has pinpointed the East Market District or Nulu as a prime reason for visiting the city, with it's converted warehouses used as local breweries, antique shop and the city's coolest restaurants!

The other area of our beloved city that received a shout out? Although not surprising, but still exciting, Bardstown Road was mentioned for being a hipster strip of shops and bars! Bourbon was also a contributing factor, citing the Urban Bourbon Trail for bourbon's current wave of popularity!

Give-A-Jam to End Homelessness!

On Thursday, December 20th, the 2nd annual "Give-A-Jam to End Homelessness" will take place at the Clifton Center. The event will showcase many of Louisville's most talented artists including John Gage, Justin Lewis, Hog Operation, Scott Carney, plus many, many more!

Additionally, there will be an array of soups and stews from local restaurants such as The Irish Rover, Proof on Main, Taco Punk and the Silver Dollar! Those restaurants and musicians participating are donating their time and talent, and the event will be staffed entirely of volunteers to ensure that all proceeds go to benefit the Coalition for the Homeless. There will also be a cash bar and bidding on a variety of silent auction items!

John and Natalie Harris, a husband and wife team, came up with "Give-A-Jam" with the help of many friends and supporters. John is the Executive Director of the Clifton Center, while Natalie is the Executive Director of The Coalition for the Homeless. Last year was the first year for the event and raised $8,500 for the organization! This year's goal is to raise over $10,000.

All proceeds raised will go specifically towards the Coalition Rx: Housing Program. The goal of the Rx: Housing campaign is to house the most vulnerable homeless persons on the streets of Metro Louisville.
