We had a great night at the NFocus Runway for the Roses Fashion Show at the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage benefiting Horses and Hope! http://www.horsesandhope.org/
Gunnar Deatherage from Project Runway Season 10 and Louisville native put the show together with clothing from Dillard's.
More on the show from a real writer, Cameron Miquelon.
Sponsors included Lenihan/Sotheby's as well as Glass Label, Bourbon Barrel Rehab, Korbel, Old 502 Winery and and Lite 106.9.
Bourbon Barrel Rehab provided 4 used bourbon barrel bars, 10 used bourbon barrels and 2 half barrels to use as part of the decor.
If you have an event coming up, please give us a call!
The Runway for the Roses is one of the first events kicking off Kentucky Derby season in Louisville. Such an exciting time in this little town! We're even more excited because we are a sponsor of the event this year! The event benefits Horses for Hope, who provides training in horsemanship and therapeutic horseback riding for people with disabilities (physical, mental, emotional, speech, and learning) and for persons diagnosed with debilitating or life-threatening illnesses. Tickets are still available for the event. Go to www.nfocusmagazine.com for ticket information. Please also go to www.horsesforhope.org to help this great non-profit.
A brief mention of Bourbon Barrel Rehab in the Courier Journal about some items we donated to Missy Rowe and John Hillock for their Bourbon themed basement!
We also donated a side table for a silent auction benefiting The St John Center for homeless men. If you would like to donate to this great cause go to www.stjohncenter.org
We're taping our first TV segment tomorrow! Pretty exciting! Jeff has never been on TV before so it should be interesting. We will post information on the air date as soon as we get it. If you're in Louisville and have nothing to do from about noon to 2 stop by. The Bourbon Lounge is taped in front of a live audience. Reply or email us if you want more details!
As we mentioned a week or so ago on Facebook, we are going to be on TV!! If you're not busy on February 23rd (and live in Louisville) come by Equus/Jack's Lounge at 12:30 and be a part of the studio audience for The Bourbon Lounge! "Family and friends are welcome on set; we tape in front of a live studio audience so the more the merrier. Due to the nature of the show and city ordinances children should not be allowed on set." Seating is limited so get there early! Can't wait!!
So what's the difference? Do we also use whiskey barrels? What's the difference between whiskey and whisky?
Here are some answers. These links are both to wikipedia so take some of the info with a grain of salt but they are generally on the money. And yes, we have whisky (or whiskey) barrels at times and even some wine barrels!
The New York Post did an article on the Urban Bourbon Trail! Nice press about Louisville & Bourbon! If you haven't ever done the UBT you should!! A couple of years ago when the trail was only 9 bars long (now it's 19) our group did all 9 bars in one evening! Well, we did 8 really because the last one was closed by the time we got there. We rented the Bus Shizzle (great little Shelbyville based company - http://busshizzle.com ) and let me tell you, the ride home was not pretty! Anyway, here's the article...
Thank you so much to Sydney O'Bryan for all the work to put together the Louisville Palace Wedding Show! We had a great time and there were TONS of brides and reluctant grooms. It's so funny to watch the guys hang back, standing a half step behind their bride-to-be.
Here are a few photos. It was an amazing show in such a beautiful, historic place. Lucky to have been asked to join in.
Bourbon Barrel Rehab was mentioned in an article about the upcoming Louisville Palace Wedding Show this Friday! Not your mother's wedding show, for sure!!
