of the Month

Talented. Charasmatic. Cool. We’re talking Bob here. Bob is a 7 year old Standard Poodle who can, among his many talents, run up walls. Don’t believe me? Next time you see Bob and his caretaker Vic on Main Street, ask for a demo.

Outdoor Dining Returning to Main Street

2009’s experiment with dining platforms on the 800 block of Main Street proved very popular and will be coming back this summer a bit bigger and a bit better. The Louisville DBA is currently coordinating off-site construction and hopes to have the platforms in place June 1. Beautiful photo by J. Bargar.

Waterloo Doing Brunch and, of Course, it’s Awesome

Saturday and Sunday from 9:30am - 2:00pm. Come experience the Bloody Mary bar and 15 different breakfast entrees - like chicken and waffles, brisket hash, smoked pork benedict, chicken fried steak, omelettes, burritos, kid’s pancakes, waffles, and breakfast sliders. Yummmm!

It’s Weird to be 128 Years Old and Considered Hip

But Historic Downtown can handle it.
