Rusty roars into the Memorial Day weekend with a superb show highlighting some of the city’s most interesting people. First, get to know Scott and Jennifer Benningfield, the married couple who saw an article in a magazine about these strange bikes made in Amsterdam. It took a year for Jennifer to talk her husband into getting one and starting the business you know as The Thirsty Pedaler. Now, they’ve opened a storefront on Fourth Street Live.
The granddaddy of all local beer event in New Albany’s Fest of Ale, organized by Keg Liquors owner Todd Antz. For the first time, the official after party for the June 3 event will be held at the Gospel Bird, where hundreds of fest-ers flocked last year when a storm hit the event. Eric Morris has big plans for the party, even while working on a new seafood spot, Hull and High Water, right down the street.
I’ve had about enough of Donald Trump and Matt Bevin and their attitude in trying to control what various media report. This week Bevin took to Facebook Live to record a video explaining how he has no intention of answering questions from the Courier-Journal and Herald-Leader. That’s because he doesn’t want to answer questions about the bargain he got on a house he bought at a discount. And don’t get me started on Trump. It’s time to pay attention, people, and speak up before these loudmouths get their way with the media.
This weekend is full of great events — Abbey Road on the River, the Kentucky Reggae Festival and Monday’s Hike and Bike with the Mayor. I hop you can get out there and enjoy. them And thanks for listening to the Rusty Satellite Show.
