My liver's suing for separate maintenance -- again.

Once again, the weekend is packed with events and items of note, most of them taking place in and around New Albany.

I'm told that the new Dueling Grounds Cafe is open for patronage in advance of tomorrow's bigger event, the 5th Anniversary of Destinations Booksellers on Sunday, October 18. For some of you, there'll be time for Bloody Marys on the Bank Street patio before the book 'n' coffee fete, but the Curmudgeons will pass on tomato juice in favor of goat cheese: Capriole Farm's Fall Open House in Greenville. Both surface temps and foliage should be grand, and there'll be wine from Oliver Winery in Bloomington.

In other weekend event news, Lupulin Land Harvest Hopcoming is under way at NABC's Public House & Pizzeria, and the BBC Taproom (Main & Clay in downtown Louisville) is staging its Volksfest today. For the latter, Clay Street is shut down, and there is a roster of draft Oktoberfests as well as appearances by Louisville metro breweries (NABC will have Hoptimus on hand).

As a final note, the NABC staff made a lunchtime sales call to the new Wick's on State yesterday (Friday), and when we left at 12:25 p.m., I counted 95 customers dining in or carrying out. That's very impressive, especially since we'll have Elector on tap there at some point early in the coming week.
