Weekend tips: City clean-up; Breweriana sale; and Bistro New Albany's Mother's Day meal.

Let's put this back on the marquee.


The forthcoming weekend is crowded with interesting activities, so here are the three that I’m shamelessly touting.

New Albany City Clean-Up

Breweriana Sale at Rich O's

Special Mother's Day menu at Bistro New Albany



It's New Albany’s City Wide Clean-Up, 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. If you can catch ‘em – they sure are slippery -- feel free to flip a few slumlords into those handy dumpsters scattered around town. Also, remember to tune in to NAC’s coverage of the next city council meeting, when CM Coffey almost surely will praise fellow Siamese Councilman Steve Price for (a) helping out during the clean-up even though he isn’t on the city’s sanitation payroll, (b) diligently refusing to visit the teeming streets of Calcutta, otherwise known as Louisville’s Frankfort Avenue corridor, and (c) knowing how to play only one political tune, but playing it very loudly – and very often.


Meanwhile, my entire day will be taken up with the annual breweriana & beer collectibles sale, this year taking place on a new day, but still running from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The breweriana sale -- antique bottles, signs, mirrors, glassware, trays, clocks, lamps, books, and much more -- takes place in the Prost special events room at Rich O’s Public House, and is sponsored by the FOSSILS homebrewing and beer appreciation club.

For more information: I'm goin' in ... time to prepare for the breweriana sale at Rich O's this Saturday, May 13.


Bistro New Albany will have special Sunday hours for a marvelous Mother’s Day feast. Go to “Preview of Mother's Day at Bistro New Albany” for a look at Sunday’s multi-course, fixed-price menu, to be served in two seatings (11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.) – and kindly note bNA’s current hours, which are subject to alteration as the Daves learn more about business patterns downtown.

11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

(Includes bar food menu until June 1st, when the much anticipated evening fine-dining menu will be inaugurated)
5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday
5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday

Closed:Monday and Tuesday evenings, and Sunday (except for special events like the Mother’s Day meal).

Adam took me to the MOther's Day brunch today and the food was excellent as was the wait staff.

A few kinks to be worked out but we are definately looking forward to a return trip. (the crab cakes are SCREAMING my name!)

All in all a great experience.

Saw you come in and meant to say hi, but being with my mom makes me nervous.

Thanks to all who have visited the bistro, we are truly grateful for all the support. With the first two weeks behind us we will tweak the kinks and deliver all you deserve. The Daves are looking forward to a long stay in the downtown area. Cya soon at the bistro!
