BBC and Pie Kitchen

Last week my parents were in town. We had plans to go other places in dtown L-ville, but those places were packed, so we had to find another place. So, I had wanted to check out BBC - Bluegrass Brewing Company. What a great choice!
No wait...LIVE Folk music - a bunch of older men and some 10 years old got together with their fiddles, banjos, guitars, harmonicas - it was great. It was a treat for my dad - good thing, he was paying! :)
Very fair prices...It was about 30 for all three of us for dinner, you can't do that too many places.
Outside dining - we sat outside (where the folk players came). The only thing I didn't like was the cigarette smoke - KY isn't a no-smoking dining state. One of the things I miss about not being in FL.
Fantastic Food - Mom and I split the wings. They were great. Hot enough to know they were hot, not too hot that you couldn't taste the wings themselves. Also, we split the hummus platter. Their hummus was great - very similar to George's Garage in Durham (that is hard to find). That was plenty of food, in two appetizers, for both of us. Dad had an Angus burger and his fries were awesome (Mom and I both had one).
The only two things I didn't like about this restaurant was the smoke outside and our waiter. He tended to forget about us at times. Maybe he was too thrilled with the music - but I doubt it.

Then, on recommendation of Lorie, we went to the Homemade Pie and Ice Cream Kitchen. This is a place where they make their own pies and ice cream (go figure). Mom and I split the caramel apple with caramel ice cream. The pie wasn't too sweet, which I thought it would be. It could have been warmed up a little more. The ice cream really didn't taste like much, but it did cut the sweetness of the pie. Dad got coconut cream pie - it was good, the filling, but the crust had an odd taste to it.

But, I have to say - I recommend the BBC - check it out if you are in L-ville. There is one right at Lexington and Shelbyville.
