Passiflora incarnata Flowers

While visiting a great restaurant in Louisville Ramsi's Cafe on the World on Bardstown Road, there is very unique flowering plant outside Carmichael's Bookstore. I think it is a Passiflora incarnata which is a passion fruit plant.

The bees seem to really love the flowers on this plant!

Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me Records in Louisville

The Louisville Kentucky recording of the NPR show Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me was about 2 weeks ago. It is an entertaining and enlightening event to attend. Louisville chef Edward Lee is very witty and held his own with the host and panel they had on stage at the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts. The show lasts about 2 hours which allows them to get material for about a 1 hour show. They do retakes from time to time and have to screen some of the out of bounds content of public broadcast standards.

The crowd was pretty noisy so that seemed to cause some recording issues at times as well.

We could not take videos, flash photography, or audio recordings but were allowed still images. So my camera phone images are not the greatest especially since the Moto X is not known for its low light photography capabilities.

Before the show we walked around the riverfront and went up on the walking bridge. From it one can see the new bridge being constructed.

While waiting to be allowed in the auditorium, one could see WorldFest being set up on the riverfront.
