A racetrack that won't hurt horses
We need a synthetic racetrack at Churchill Downs. Running on dirt or turf is more dangerous for horses than running on a synthetic track. Whatever your Derby or Oaks-related feeling, we can all agree it should be as safe as possible for the animals involved.
Once upon a time, we had two WHY Louisville stores: one in NuLu and one in the Highlands. WHY Louisville sold mostly Louisville-related gifts, apparel, and trinkets. These kitsch-laden stores were fun to visit as a resident or a tourist. After the highly publicized breakdown of WHY Louisville proprietor Will Russell in 2015, both stores shuttered. Bring them back!
A disco-ball mirror maze
Louisville has a lot of history with the disco ball. The largest one in Kentucky is currently hanging at Fourth Street Live!, but sadly, Louisville has no disco ball-inspired mirror maze in which to take endless selfies and throw pop-up parties and generally boogie down. The Louisville Mega Cavern has an amazing Christmas lights show, an aerial ropes course, and a zip-line tour, but how about a mirror maze section celebrating the city’s sparkliest product?
