There were a few cool murals in Butchertown neighborhood of Louisville which is named for the butchers and stockyards originally located in the area. When a creek was rerouted it became a good place for the animal remains to be dumped in the creek and such businesses were banned in the downtown area for sanitation reasons. Um, yeah.
|Bubble lights on the chandelier - genius!|
Now the area is filled with chic shops and the only livestock I spotted was the painting of a giraffe... and maybe a few painted cows and chickens. But Katrina and I have a thing for giraffes so it gets to be the star.
My plate came with a slice of cheese and arugula pizza. It was so good that I've had this at home twice since then!
Across the street another mural telling the story of Butchertown's history from past to present.
