    I am no longer in the party scene, nor do I drink but a lot of my friends still do & they are constantly telling me of all these great places they go to. I, however, am perfectly content with enjoying a blooming onion at Texas Roadhouse or having the potato soup from O'Charleys. There is a wide range of places to eat, then have a night on the town in our area if that is your cup of tea!

    In Louisville, we have 3 major malls, countless strip malls, mom-and-pop stores and most major retailers. I do my shopping at just about all of them. The diverse shopping experience that our city offers allows for us to obtain just about anything we want. The main complaint that I have is that 2 of the 3 malls are on the other side of town which is about 20 miles from my house so I usually do not visit them unless I have a doctors appointment or other business in that area.

    In our particular area of town, we have a wide variety of jobs to choose from, including warehouses such as Amazon, Gordans Food Service and Ford to retail stores like Wal-Mart, Target, Lane Bryant to just about every fast food restaurant chain you can name. Most people in our part of town work at either warehouse jobs, retail stores or in the medical field.
