Bars In Kentucky Close At 2:30 AM

As I noted in my most recent post, I am taking a Thanksgiving blogging break. Of course, my commitment to the blog reading public is such that even when on a blogging break, I’m still serving you the reader.

My most recent service to blog readers came just this morning when I learned that bars in Kentucky close at 2:30 AM. I was at a bar in Newport, Kentucky—the famous Southgate House— and at 2 AM two large guys came around and shouted we had half an hour left. At 2:30 we were all out the door.

It sure was cold in Newport, Kentucky today at 2:30 AM.

The 24 hour White Castle near the Southgate House is, indeed, open 24 hours. Even after the bars close the White Castle is open.

I’m using the time on my Thanksgiving Blogging break for discovery and greater connectedness with our world. Today I’ve discovered and connected with the fact that bars in Kentucky close at 2:30 AM.

Knowing this, I am more at one with others and myself. ( I had been feeling divided.) 

This evening I will explore a bar on the Cincinnati side of the Ohio River. What will I learn about myself and our world?

    Yes, bars close early up here. I was out until 1:30am last night.

    But not to White Castle 😦

  2. In Louisville, Lexington and Bowling Green (at least) closing time is 4 AM. On one very special Saturday night every year closing time feels like five.

    and I miss White Castle like you wouldn’t believe.

  3. Queer Cincinnati—Only 1:30? You’re slipping.

    Stan—4 AM! That’s late! You could almost see the sunrise from the bar.

    Thanks for both comments.
