Weekend plans

There is no shortage of things to do if you find yourself in Louisville this weekend.

Here are just a few that caught my eye:

Quills Coffee is celebrating their grand opening today with lots of bands, good coffee, and good fun! I was talking to the owner of Quills last night, Nathan Quillo (who is married to my cousin), about the tea service that they offer at the shop. It's fair trade, organic tea bought from tea farms in China. I'm excited to try their tea service now because they're really particular about temperature and steeping time to make sure you get the best cup of tea. They also give the customer information about the tea service, so that even novice tea drinkers can feel comfortable steeping and straining their own tea. Nathan said the sencha and peach blossom white are two of the most popular teas they sell, both of which sound absolutely delicious. So if you're in the area today (930 Baxter Avenue), stop by Quills for their celebration and a cup of coffee or tea.

In addition to the Quills party, the Original Highlands Art and Music Festival is going on today on Baxter Avenue from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. The street will be closed off and filled with artists' booths and a couple of stages with bands. It sounds like a cool, casual festival.

Another festival that I'm interested in is the September Art Fair at Mellwood. It's going on today and tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. I'm excited to see what local artists are making. Plus, I've never been inside the Mellwood Arts and Entertainment Center and this is the perfect excuse to check it out. It was formerly a meat-packing facility, but now houses artists' studios, galleries, and shops among other things.

What are you up to this weekend? Whatever it is, I hope you enjoy it!


  1. I think I am going to go over to the Highlands Fest. Are you going to be there?

  2. I found your blog from my friend, Sue, who met you at the Phoenix Hill Farmer's Market.
    I wish I'd read it sooner and gone to Quills today. I keep meaning to go.
    I had a great time at Mellwood today!
    Looking forward to more of your blogging.
