Play night ping-pong at Garage Bar
Garage Bar is perfectly located to be the queen of Louisville’s summer nightlife -- hardly an August evening goes by without a crowd gathering to lounge on the AstroTurf seating, admire each other’s animal companions, and play ping-pong on light-up tables. There’s nothing like a fresh basil gimlet and a slice of wood-fired oven-cooked pizza to fuel the rest of your summer revelries.
It’s August and you haven’t been to Dairy Kastle yet? Shame on you, if you make it to the end of the season without partaking, you’ll have to turn in your Official Louisvillian card. The seasonally open stand offers many culinary delights -- the Fat Elvis milkshake and the taco-in-a-bag, for instance -- but none so universally beloved as the orange cow: orange sherbet and Sprite, simple and perfect.
