Bardstown Bound on 10/23

I love Bardstown Bound.  Bardstown Road Aglow, the perfectly-timed-right-before-the-holidays version of Bardstown Bound, is one of my favorite nights of the year.  The smell of mulled cider.  The Christmas cookies. The excuse to Christmas shop with a drink in your hand.  But Bardstown Bound has its own merits-- the weather is warmer, crisp fall nights are perfect for walking, the trick-or-treaty stuff...

If you have no idea what I'm talking about....

A couple of nights a year, the boutiques up Bardstown (and down Baxter) stay open late-- sometimes as late as 10p or 11p-- and offer special sales, desserts or hors d'oeuvres, and sometimes some lovely wine or boozy drinks.  There's a free trolley (in this case from 2p-8p, which makes no sense to me... wouldn't later be better for those folks who over indulge on the boozy drinks?).  The Aglow version has gotten so popular in the last couple of years that sometimes there are lines to get into the more popular stores.

Here's an old Aglow review (sorta) from Loueyville.

And remember, ghosts and ghouls, this weekend is ALSO Ghostbusters at the Baxter Avenue Theater Midnight Saturday movie.  Sounds like a wicked (ha ha ha, pun not intended) good day!
