My hubby and I just returned from our Anniversary trip to Louisville, Kentucky- the home of bourbon, mint juleps, hot brown and the Derby! We were celebrating 13 years of marriage- I can't believe it's been that long! We wanted a getaway that was with in 4 hours of Columbus, Ohio (where we live) and Louisville was the perfect choice! Thanks to Living Social we got an amazing deal for a two night stay at The Brown hotel that came with free parking, a bottle of wine, chocolate covered strawberries, 2 hot brown's and 2 bourbon flights PER DAY! I've stayed at nice hotels before but this one was a step above anything I've experienced! The staff was incredible! We were treated like royalty the entire time we were there!

that's hot brown!

Bourbon tasting at Evan Williams Distillery:
A lot of firsts on this trip- first time staying in Kentucky, first time tasting hot brown, first time drinking bourbon, first time tasting bourbon balls, and our first time getting room service! We also went to two really good restaurants. For our anniversary dinner we went to an Italian restaurant called Volare which was amazing! Then for brunch we tried Wild Eggs which was one of the best breakfasts we've ever had- just a really fun place! The bourbon tour and tasting at Evan Williams was also a lot of fun! Then of course we found some vintage and thrift stores because I never travel to a new city without checking out their thrift scene- more on that on Friday though! It was a great trip- I highly recommend everything I mentioned here! So nice to have three whole days with my best friend!Pin It
