Bar Belle from 1/5/18 Insider Louisville: Is it possible to drink and diet?

Runnin’ on empty.

Here’s my annual roundup of all the calories and crap.

If you’re doing low carb, drink liquor. If you’re doing low calorie, drink light beer or liquor.

Simple as that.

So why don’t I ever lose weight?

Read all about it here.


Today’s Reason To Drink

Old table, new table.

Just because I can’t sit still … here’s another project I’ve been working on. Found this coffee table in someone’s trash and decided to clean it, sand it and stain it.

Now, when you sit on my bourbon barrel couch, you have somewhere to put your drink.


(Thanks to E for spotting the table and proving it’s sturdy by jumping on it repeatedly, and thanks to Leslie for letting me borrow a sander.)

Today’s Reason To Drink

Taylor is not invited to the pub crawl.

So I’m having a little pub crawl this weekend, and I’m worried nobody is going to show up. Facebook says there are only 263 people going and 3,400 interested.


I’m actually crapping my pants and praying those numbers won’t really be accurate. I mean, who can really trust Facebook these days anyway? All people seem to post are rants about statues or quotes from poets.

What happened to the good old days of airing your dirty laundry all over social media, or picking a song that sums up your day?

Wish me luck, keep your fingers crossed that nobody shows up, and don’t blame us if there’s a line to get to the bar.

Today’s Reason To Drink


It’s Friday! Do you know where I can get some beer?

Thinking about going to that Girls Rock Louisville karaoke thing at Zanzabar tonight … but it doesn’t start until 11:30 p.m. Yikes! Can this Grandma make it that late? Depends on when I start, I suppose.
