We all understand the concept of the “bucket list.” Whether we’ve done it yet or not, visiting Niagara Falls is on most of our bucket lists. Kevin Gibson thinks there’s plenty to do without even filling up your gas tank and tells us about it in 100 Things to Do in Louisville Before You Die.
The Insider Louisville feature/news writer, who covers local food and beverage businesses with flair, will introduce his latest book at Destinations Booksellers in New Albany, Indiana, on Thursday, March 10, at 7 p.m. It’s an unticketed event, but as it’s being held in the dining room of Taco Steve (see Gibson’s introductory story about the eatery), dining reservations are suggested. Call 812-670-6463 to reserve a table.
The event will mark Gibson’s first bookstore appearance since the release of 100 Things to Do in Louisville Before You Die. He’ll discuss the book and how he selected the 100 most important venues, activities, and events in the Falls City. As designed by the publisher, Reedy Press, the book makes a perfect gift for locals and prospective visitors to the area.
From his bio page at Insider Louisville:
Kevin Gibson is a Louisville, Ky.-based writer who covers everything from food to music to beer to bourbon. He loves bacon, loathes cucumbers and once interviewed Yoko Ono (pissed her off a little, too). Check out his books, Louisville Beer: Derby City History on Draft and 100 Things to do in Louisville Before You Die. He also has won numerous awards for his work, but he doesn’t know where most of them are now. In his spare time, he also co-hosts a local radio show and plays in a band called the Uncommon Houseflies. Check out his blog, 502Brews.com, or feel free to call him names on Twitter: @kgramone.
