While in Louisville we went to the Brown Hotel to try the Hot Brown (which was a winner in a Bobby Flay Throw Down). It was invented in the 1920s for people who had danced all night at the Brown Hotel and you would have needed to do that to eat it – one sandwich has a pint of cream in the sauce! It is basically an open-faced turkey sandwich, with mornay sauce, cheese and bacon. It was pretty good, but since we did not dance all night, we split one. You can see it in the picture below. We did our visit the local college thing and went to the University of Louisville to buy a t-shirt (that is where the horse picture is from). The last thing we did was go to the Louisville Slugger Factory for a tour. Leslie was so excited with the free bats that we got at the end of the tour.
