Have a Ball at Buddy's!

For those who missed the wine tasting, now's your chance to network, relax, and just have fun with fellow LIS-ers outside of class. For those who came--we'd love to see you again!

Join us Friday, September 28 at 5 p.m. for our first (or second, depending on how you look at it) "official" LISSO activity of the term at Buddy's Bar and Grill.

LISSO will be buying some appetizers to share all 'round, so come ready to munch! We'd love to be able to pay for it all, but cost of drinks and all other food will be up to the individual. The agenda for the evening is as follows:

  • 5-5:30 Gather at the bar for drinks

  • 5:30 Seating for dinner

  • 5:30 'til everyone leaves: Food, drinks, socialize, and relax with fellow bibliophiles!

Hope to see you there!

Welcome Back Wine Tasting Report

Meet Bacchus, our newest honorary LISSO member.....well maybe only for one day.

August 18th, was our Welcome Back Wine Tasting at Equus Run Vineyards....and besides meeting Bacchus in person, several other personality legends attended to kick off the new school year.

The wine and weather were sublime and the setting was beautiful.....the grapes were just ready to be harvested which filled the air with a special sweetness, just for us.....thanks to all who made it out! Lots of new faces and some veterans to welcome them! Here's a sampling of some of the fun!

The main barn for curing the wine,

While some students chose to enjoy the atmosphere of the tasting room, others escaped outside to the patio
and enjoyed a more private tasting session supplied by our gracious host.

Last stop before heading home.....a tour of the grounds and facilities...with full glass of course.
Thanks for coming and perhaps we can make this a new summer habit!

Here's a suggestion from one of our readers....
- Thanks Heather!

A fellow I know at the Louisville Free Public Library produces an interesting talk-show style podcast about current library issues. It's a call in show that's open to anyone. Here's the link to the show's blog which includes instructions on joining the conversation as well as how to stream or subscribe to the podcast.
Thanks,Heather Fox
PS- The LISSO blog looks great!
