Louisville’s namesake: King Louis XVI
We drank plenty of bourbon, including mint juleps at Churchill Downs.
I almost bet on this horse because of the pretty color it was sporting, but opted for another. The horse I bet on lost, but so did number nine.

I would have loved to stay at 21c, which is a hotel, museum and restaurant rolled into one. The venue has plastic penguins that change location everyday. The second time we walked past the building, there were a dozen lined up on the roof.
He also mysteriously disappeared the next time we walked past.
They even used small penguin pins to post the dinner and drink menus outside of the restaurant.
Artwork extends into Proof on Main, the bar/restaurant of 21c.
I couldn’t resist a ceramic penguin to bring home. Dave isn’t content with its location on the bookshelf and insists on moving it throughout the house.
