2. The grass here is blue
Yes, there is Kentucky bluegrass (poa pratensis, if you want to get all technical about it) but honestly, it’s not that blue. When it’s allowed to grow to its natural height of 2-3ft, the blossoms are blue, but we don’t let it grow that high because we’re not savages.
3. Everyone in Louisville loves the Derby
This might come as a shock, but not everyone is thrilled when Louisville is annually overrun with booze-swilling, restaurant-hogging, direction-asking tourists. Even if you enjoy the Derby tourism boom (lots of us do!), it’s hard to enjoy the Derby when it happens every year and every single meeting is moved to “after Derby” because suddenly there’s something to do every single minute of every single day. FOMO is never higher that Derby time.
