Louisvillians aren't really...
Louisvillians aren't really the best drivers, though I've seen worse in other states, but be ready for the fast lane, slow cruisers. Police like to be undercover here, so watch out for them. Some of the cars to watch out for:
Green Camero with dark windows,
White Camero, with the Louisville Police design on the sides. The number of this car is 748, located on the left side of the rear bumper.
I have seen a maroon undercover car
Crown Victorias of colors: White, Tan, other...
I'll have more on this soon, including places to watch for police.
Watch for police at the following places.
In the center medians, many times under bridges or on the downswing of hills.
Near the bridge over LaGrange Road.
Under the Old Henry Road bridge.
I haven't seen many here, but they'd hang out along the center median.
I haven't seen many inside of the Gene Snyder, but I'm sure they're there. Northwards towrads Cincy, anywhere, it varies, but generally hidden behind bushes, or even out in the open on a turn-around.
In the city, cops hide at times on side roads, hoping to catch you going fast in 35 zones.
In general, I have seen cops patrolling 42, making U-turns and driving up and down waiting for the right person to make the wrong move. So, while many go 60 mph, as it is easy to do, try to keep it down.
At the Holiday Manor Shopping Center and Northfield area, watch for cops. The speed limit is 35, and they enforce it.
Nearing Prospect, slow down. The police here are strict, and seem to enjoy giving big tickets.
Yes, police are police, and they like to give tickets for people that speed, but I think in general, Louisville's police are decent. I have a few friends in the department and they are all great guys.
Again, more later!

Hey, for decent bar food, and some fun, go to Oliver's Billiards on Dupont Circle, right off Breckenridge Lane. There are over ten tables there, and games cost $3 USD every night except Tuesday and Thursday when they only cost $1 USD. Under 21 allowed until 10 or so.
Nothing special. just a place for 21+ to hang out and play pool. Casual.

Thai Cafe is also located in Holiday Manor SC, and serves good Thai food. Thai food is pretty healthy stuff, and this place does a good job with it.
Nothing too special. just good Thai food. Any of the curries are good, as is the Pad Thai.

Louisville Free Public Library
This is an excellent place to do further research on Kentucky. It's also an interesting building. The old part dates back to 1902, while the newer one was completed in 1969. It has some interesting sculpture as well--statues of Benjamin Franklin in front of the new part and of Abraham Lincoln in front of the older one.
