Letter From The Editor


If you’re in need of a philanthropic way to find stress relief and you’re a fan of felines, Louisville’s new Purrfect Day Cat Café is the answer. Sure, watching cat videos online provides instant satisfaction, but now Chuck Patton has brought the experience offline. In this week’s cover story, writer Kris Ritcher’s feature explores the already-popular place and proves why Purrfect Day is the cat’s meow (had to say it).

We love seeing longtime friends of The Voice-Tribune in our pages, so it was our pleasure and privilege to send photographer Tim Valentino to Dan Schusterman’s 90th birthday party hosted at the home of Laura Frazier. Added bonus: Carla Sue Broecker, who had since retired her longtime column, Partyline, was there, too.

Other highlights you’ll want to see in this issue: Bike to Beat Cancer is gearing up for the 10th anniversary event, Kentucky Opera hits a high note at Locust Grove, a new app – created by a local – helps tennis lovers find matches (for play not love, mind you), Bardstown is home to a new concept that’s worth the trip and we covered Tuxes and Tails, LEO Weekly’s Margaritas in the ’Ville and the Big Wish Gala. And celebrated photographer John Harralson Jr. was there to snap pictures at the Brown-Forman Luncheon.

As always, thank you for taking the time to pick up The Voice.
