Fall is just around the corner, and with that, the beautiful autumn colors, and crisper weather that we all look forward to at summer's end. This year should be no different! 

The virus shut down all our event plans since our dinner this last February but now... its high time we get together again!

 

We have lunch scheduled in General Butler State Park's Two Rivers restaurant on September 23 at 1:00PM. General Butler is in Carrolton Kentucky and a few miles north of I71's exit 44, on KY-227 North. Two Rivers' entrance is on the West side of KY-227 (my GPS was wrong saying it is on the East side, beware).

 

Fred Mudge will lead a caravan from Mercedes-Benz of Louisville and leave promptly at noon. His route will be via I71, but his return route will be on scenic Hwy 42.

 

A few notes about the restaurant...

Two Rivers is General Butler's main dining room and it is large enough to accommodate all of us with appropriate safe distancing with many tables for four and six diners. They have done their best to ensure a safe dining experience during these pandemic times but beware, it goes without saying, you will be dining at your own risk.

Before determining the lunch date we met with their staff and learned that they do not accept reservations, Thursday through Sunday are their busiest days and they will be going on their Winter schedule with limited staff and hours the week after our lunch date. They suggested Wednesday September 23rd and we agreed.

Two Rivers’ menu has a good variety of lunches and the food is not only tasty but reasonably priced as well (Their Hot Brown is great!). The dining room view overlooks lakes and trees that should be, hopefully, in Fall full colors and awesome!
