I think you would like the art show anyway because the neighborhood is pretty and there is more than just art. Plus, it's free so if you don't, you can leave with no loss

You should be warned that this is a very big event, so parking is tough. Its been years since Ive went and it was a mob scene then. It's probably even larger now.

St James Court Art Fair is probably the major community festival of the fall season in Louisville.

wow you guys werent kidding when you said how popular the event is. i was playing with days for hotels on hotwire. it looked like the brown hotel was their 4.5 star hotel and was affordable on certain days. but when i enter the days for any hotel from 9/30-10/4 on hotwire, no downtown hotels show up! when i enter for the days 10/14-10/18, the brown is 89 a night, and their 4 star (probably galt house) is 69 a night.

i forgot to ask you all is louisville good for singles in their 20s-30s? also (really dumb) but GENERALLY what do they men there find physically attractive about a woman? i live in los angeles and i think im attractive, but unless you look and dress a certain way, you really dont have much luck in dating!

Los Angeles--and I dearly love it, really I do--is probably a whole lot more looks prejudice than Louisville. In comparison, Louisville is so laid back it's actually laying down! So if you are "competitive" on the dating/singles scene in LA, then you'll be fine in Louisville!

there are lots of lovely, pretty/beautiful/gorgeous ladies in Louisville, but it's just a whole other culture.

Anybody else want to back me up? Or , to be fair, even say anything in rebuttal, just to give it a broader scope?

Having lived in Louisville the majority of my life, and been in/around LA many many times for extended periods I feel like that is a pretty honest assessment. Of course, I haven't been in LA for about 7 years, but I'm sure it hasn't changed, and if it has, I'm pretty sure it would have gotten more intense!

I have a friend who moved here from San Diego and said that in general Louisville people are way nicer than in SoCal and less condescending. Don't know if that helps or not.

yay. thanks for the "dating in louisville" advice. i am born and raised in los angeles. i need a huge change and like the idea of actually being able to afford a little house! between austin and louisville (assuming i would love it which i think i will), i will go where ever i have a better chance of getting a job in my field!

anyway, i think im going to book a trip to louisville!
fly there oct 3 and fly back home on the 7th. 260 on american
brown hotel is 432 for 4 nights. i am used to staying at hostels and cheap hotels, but this place looked worth treating myself at
brown hotel parking for 4 days (dont think its worth it to get the car the day i fly in) is 72
enterprise car rental is 92 .

with these dates i could still see most of the things i want to check out. i would book now, but i want to find out the deal as early as possible with my classes (i am a grad student). im already missing a monday for a jewish holiday, so i will end up missing 2 mondays. need to find out who will be teaching that class!

thanks for the tips guys. i am excited about the brown especially their breakfast and lunch menu!

Their breakfast buffet is the best I've ever had. At lunch or dinner, get the Hot Brown. It's the local dish that was actually invented at the Brown Hotel. (Hence the name!) Turkey, ham and bacon over toast with a cheese sause. Yum!

Edited to add: Uhm, I didn't really think that through when I made that suggestion.

do they make the hot brown with no ham or bacon? i am very picky about meat (i will eat fish and chicken and turkey once in a blue moon.

lol at the edited to add. i am not a vegetarian anymore, i just try to keep a mainly veg diet.

any places walking distance to the brown i should also check out the day i arrive? again i wont spend the money for a car because i wont be in till 4:30 pm. would like just to hang around the hotel and anything within a 20 minute walk each way that night.
