CTK Oktoberfest

We went last night. If you weren’t there then you were the only one. It was a blast. So many people, so many choices of food. West 6th selling Amber and IPA. Funnel cakes. BHG foods. Brats. Pizza. Gelato. The Kentucky Ale line was too long so I’m not sure which beers they have.

Gin Blossoms were last night and tonight is Fastball. There are a few live acts before so come early

Bring cash but not too much since you can get sucked into the gambling and BINGO.

Pretty please, carpool. This is in a residential neighborhood so please be good neighbors.

A beautiful pocket of woods and walking trails, along with some educational material, McConnell Springs is a nice break without driving far from the city center. Continue reading “McConnell Springs”
