Local Love: New 2 Lou and The Sport & Social Club

So my buddies Stacey and Amador, owners of New2Lou
had their monthly social at the Sport & Social Club 
in downtown Louisville last night. 
As usual, we had a blast and even scored some free bowling. 

Some photos
and some funny Jim Gaffigan to go with it (SO true):
Although we didn’t bowl so well (who does really?),
we noticed that the scorekeeper also kept track of ball speed.
So then it just became a game of Who Could Hurl  Bowl the Ball Down the Lane the Fastest.
And because I know you’re wondering,
20.2 mph was the record, by Doug, for the record. ; )

Right: Willing the ball to the left. It didn’t work.

If you’re new to Lou (isville), you should totes check out New2Lou
They host fun socials in different locales each month
for you to see great parts of the city and socialize with new peeps! 
(They also keep you up-to-date on all cool happenings around the city.) 
Even if you’re not new (I’m from here) it’s a good time to be had by all.

I only needed jeans…


Wednesday I had my last couple clients of the day reschedule due to allergy/breathing issues… (it’s been crazy weather here lately) so I decided to finally go to the mall and start the search for new jeans. My last 3 really good pairs all bit the dust this winter (holes) and I haven’t had the time to really look for the perfect pair. This was a good time…

I found some jeans! But I got a little carried away shopping…

But I did have something new to wear to the New 2 Lou social that night…

Had to take a photo of my adorable chicken pot pie and mini salad from Ghyslain on Market. And my $15 top and $15 shorts (that now look too short) from Charlotte Russe.

Moral of the story: Don’t go to the mall when you haven’t shopped in ages, have money, and have several free hours. Or do…

Local Love – New 2 Lou

Are you New to Lou (isville)?

Being new to a city can suck. Or it can be wonderful. It’s all in how you look at things. I love moving to new cities. Getting to start over and make new friends is very exciting to me but it can take a while to make some new friends/acquaintances and to find all the cool stuff to do in a new place.

My new friends, Stacey and Amador, thought the exact same thing when they relocated to Louisville a couple years ago, so they decided to start New 2 Lou. This new social networking group meets on the 2nd Wednesday of every month. They choose a different venue every time and invite Louisville newcomers as well as locals.

Here’s a short bit from their Facebook fan page:
“What do we do? Socialize, meet new people, ask advice for places to eat, get your hair cut, live, park, etc. Where do I get breakfast at 4 in the morning? What about my haircut? Are there any drink specials on Wednesdays? Any free local music? Heard of City Scoot? What about the PARC card?
Not New2Lou? That’s OK, you’re invited too! After all we need insider information from you!”
Conrad (the hubs) and I went last month and had a ton of fun. We met some cool people, found a great new tea cafe, Hillbilly Tea, and made some new friends we’ve hung out with a few times since. Their next social is tonight at Bodega on Market Street, downtown! I’ll head down for a bit and hope to meet some new, cool peeps!
