Secrets of Louisville Chefs Taping September 27

VIP tickets are available to watch the taping of two episodes of the program Secrets of Louisville Chefs. The $50 ticket will gain its holder entry to the studio at 9:30am for a champagne welcome and a meet and greet with the program's hosts and producers. The show's hosts are Tim Laird, Brown-Forman's Chief Entertaining Officer and Kevin Harned, WAVE 3 TV Chief Meteorologist, who reportedly have a terrific rapport and do not script the show. Their banter is said to be great entertainment in itself and is largely edited out of the show for squeezing the proper content into the program's allotted amount of time. Taping will begin at 10:00am.

Be Part of a Live Studio Audience in Louisville

The taping on September 27 in front of a live audience will feature Allen Hubbard, Executive Chef of Martini Italian Bistro at 4021 Summit Plaza Drive. Allen Hubbard got his start in the culinary arts in his grandmother's kitchen where she assigned him tasks of food preparation for family and church gatherings.

 The second taping will center around the secrets of the innovative dishes created by Chef Peng Looi from Asiatique Restaurant at 1767 Bardstown Road. The show is in its twelfth year making it a predecessor to many of today's popular programs featuring chefs.

In Studio Experience Includes Samples

Taping is expected to last no longer than two and one half hours ending by 12:30pm. VIP ticket holders will then be invited to sample the food that the chefs have prepared. The taping occurs at the Kitchen Studio at Bourbon Barrel Foods located at1201 Story Avenue in the Butchertown Market. The program, Secrets of Louisville Chefs, airs in Louisville on Sundays at 11:30am on WAVE TV and Monday through Friday at 6:00pm on WBNA TV channel 21.

Got Coins? Visit Fern Valley September 25 - 27

If you’re a coin enthusiast, you can’t miss the 54th annual coin show on September 25. There will be dozens of tables of coins and lots of attendants who enjoy this hobby just as much as you. It’s all coins, and it’s all taking place in one of Louisville’s best neighborhoods.

All Coins, All Day

More than 80 tables of coins will be set up for the casual observer as well as the die-hard collector. Even if you already have an expert level of knowledge when it comes to coins, you may learn something new or see something you haven’t seen before. And if you know nothing about coins, this is a perfect reason to start learning.

There’s a lot to learn, and a whole lot to see. The event is so big, it lasts for three days. On the 25th, the event is open from 1 pm to 5:30 pm. It’s open the 26th from 10 am to 5:30 pm, and on the 27th from 10 am to 4:30 pm. Admission and parking are both free, so you can attend all three days of the event and still have money to spend on coins. Even if you don’t buy anything, you’ll have the chance to rub elbows with some of Louisville’s most knowledgeable collectors, along with beginners who are new to the coin game.

Fern Valley

Find the annual coin show at the Fern Valley Conference Center at 2715 Fern Valley Road. Fern Valley is close to the lively Highlands area, which is full of shopping and other attractions. The Fern Valley community is near several large Louisville neighborhoods. It’s right next to the Highlands, and close to both Newburg and Poplar Hills.

More than 20,000 people live in the Newburg neighborhood alone. The community is constantly improving itself. As recently as 2009, Newburg funded and built an 8300-square-foot library that focuses on education and technology.

Go see some of the community for yourself, and learn about coins beginning this September 25.

Beauties and the Beast Golf Tournament September 17

The Persimmon Ridge Ladies Golf Association is hosting a golf tournament on Wednesday, September 17. The Beauties and the Beast Golf Tournament is being played with teams of two golfers in a 6-6-6 format. The 6-6-6 format means that six of the holes will be played shamble style, six holes will be played taking the best ball and the final six holes will be played in an alternate shot format.

6-6-6 Format Components

A shamble is a format where the best drive is used by both players on the team, then they both play their own shots from that point forward. Best ball is traditional play by which each team member will play his own ball. The best score from the hole becomes the team's score. The alternate shot format is as the name implies where the players will take turns playing the ball from their partner's last shot. The mix of formats makes the day more fun and allows the golfers of lesser to skill to be competitive.

Donations of Beauty Products Requested

The tournament is a benefit for Maryhurst. The Persimmon Ridge Ladies Golf Association requests that  players bring beauty products appropriate for teenagers for donation to Maryhurst's girls. Lip gloss, eyeshadow, body wash, and even jewelry are on the request list. Maryhurst is self-described as a place for new beginnings for young people who have suffered abuse and neglect. Maryhurst works to offer healing and hope to those who have nowhere else to turn. The tournament entry fee is $160 per team and includes breakfast, range balls, the 18 hole tournament with your cart, prizes, a Beau-tee gift and a delicious lunch. By coming out for a day of golf and fun at Persimmon Ridge Golf Club, you will help Maryhurst continue their work to end the cycle of abuse.
