Hey Tiger, hope you already made your dinner reservations for tomorrow, because a night out at White Castle isn’t going to get you anywhere with your sweetie. Here’s some romantic and non-romantic stuff going on.
TV Tonight: Just a half-hour to analyze this budget mess? Comment on Kentucky’s guests are Tom Loftus of the C-J, Linda Blackford of the Herald-Leader and Al Mayo of WHAS Radio. It’s on tonight at 8. [KET]
And if you missed Malcolm: I just read Malcolm Gladwell’s “Blink” which has me thinking a little differently and paying attention to first impressions. The author was here last month, and you can watch his Kentucky Author Forum appearance on KET beginning on Sunday. [KET]
Reporter for a Day?: U of L is auctioning off an opportunity to be a reporter for a day, except you don’t have to do any work. A winning bidder gets to hang out courtside with the Cards, go to a post-game press conference, and harass Eric Crawford as he’s writing his post-game story. Somebody’s already put up $200. [U of L]
Bulleit Update: We get no joy in reporting this stuff about Jim Bulleit, but the WLKY reporter had his arraignment today in district court. A pretrial conference on his shoplifting and criminal trespassing charge is set for Monday. And LEO looked it up and found out that he filed for bankruptcy last year. Anyone find it interesting that his former employer, WDRB, is the only TV station reporting on this? [FatLip]
Single by Choice?: So you’re single and need an excuse to party on Valentine’s Day. Louisville.com has just the ticket — a celebration of singlehood at Saints in St. Matthews from 7-10. [Louisville.com]
Bikeability City: The fact that some smarties in town are trying to figure out ways to make biking safer and more popular is a good idea. Check out LEO’s coverage of the city’s efforts, including a plan to get federal money for a bike station downtown with showers and everything. [FatLip]
25 Things Mystery: No, we’re not filling out one of those 25 Things things on Facebook, but may spend some time wondering along with the Wall Street Journal how the whole thing got started. [WSJ]
So we’ve had a great week and are excited about some big news that’s on the way very soon. We’re thinking about going out and buying some booze before the tax goes into effect. Stay tuned and have a great romantic weekend!
