We live just out of town on the Indiana side of the River. Thunder
is fun, but I am not one to enjoy the madhouse of the crowds, so we watch from a city park downriver a bit. When you say you want food...give me some guidelines. There are some great roadfood places in and around Louisville. And depending on how far out you want to go the selection gets better. 2 hours west is the MOONLITE BBQ
in Owensboro, that's where we take our visitors for a buffet of BBQ that will satisfy almost everyone. (See the review)
We have a full review of Genny's Diner
in for approval. When Stephen gets that on the list, take a look at it. In New Albany, IN just across the river from Louisville, try the South Side Cafeteria
at 114 Main St.
If you like Whole Wheat Pizza, Rocky's Pizza
in Jeffersonville, IN right on the river next to the Interstate Bridge..don't go on the day of Thunder as the place is selling space for the show only...
Tell me of your likes and dislikes and I will try to add to the list.
For you who wonder what the hell THUNDER
is.... It is Thunder over Louisville
, the (claims the CofC)Largest Airshow and Fireworks Display in the U S A. It is the opening event for the two weeks of "Derby Festival"
a series of events leading up to the running of the 129th Kentucky Derby
