Headquarters BBQ in Centerfield

 photo HEADQUARTERS_zpsvaip6r0g.png

Don't just pass through Centerfield - stop! 

 photo brisket_zpscz0cblqt.jpgThere's a new barbeque place right off Hwy 22.  The old, red roof building is now the home of Headquarters BBQ, LLC.  If you take a look at their Facebook page, you will find that Headquarters has been satisfying the community's appetite for a while now.  They do catering and now offer BBQ at their new location at 2700 West Hwy 22 in Centerfield.

The restaurant opened at the beginning of June and their weekly hours are Tuesday-Saturday 11am-8pm.  The food offered is typical of a BBQ place: pulled pork, ribs, brisket, and chicken all in sandwich or entrée portions.  Side choices range from homemade mac n cheese, potato salad, baked beans, fries and others.  The prices were not bad: $3.50 for a thick slice of BBQ Bologna or $24.50 for Baby Back Ribs.

Even though the food was traditional BBQ, the flavors were very unique!  I tried the Sliced Beef Brisket entrée with a side of baked beans and potato salad ($13.50).  My son had wings (six for $6) and my daughter had a kid's chicken tender meal ($4).  The Brisket was delicious and very tender.  You can request sauce for it, but I didn't feel like it needed any.  I loved that the potato salad and baked beans were obviously homemade.  These were not from a tub trucked in from Sysco.  The potato salad was light with chunks of potatoes and slices of celery and green and red peppers.  The baked beans were very filling and flavorful.  There were chunks of hamburger and peppers in the baked beans, which made for a unique side item. 

 photo deck_zpsrjimegbi.jpgI had to explain to my Buffalo Wing loving son that the wings at Headquarters BBQ were a little different from what he usually eats.  These wings are marinated, rubbed and then smoked.  You can see the rub on the wings and it's tasty.  My son enjoyed them!

The kids meals are $4 and under and are good portions for the price.  There is a BBQ pulled pork quesadilla that I was wishing one of my kids had chosen so I could sneak a taste of it!  Don't forget to ask about desserts!  Again, more homemade deliciousness!

Inside the restaurant there are a couple of tables and chairs set up for dining or you can sit at a bourbon barrel tabletop on the back deck.  The deck has lots of shade and it's nice if you want to eat your food at the restaurant versus getting it to go.

I love that the red roof house is now home to another family owned and run business.  We hope you stop in soon and give Headquarters BBQ a try!

Cabela's Kids' Explorers Program

 photo Cabelas Kids explorer program_zpsf6iusuzm.png

 photo loot_zpsrsbohxjz.jpgWho loves FREE fun in the summer?  Cabela's has great evening workshops scheduled for children at their Louisville location.  The "Kids' Explorers Program" is on Wednesday evenings 6-7pm.

The first program was Fishing Fun and boy did my kids have fun! There was a representative from the KY Department of Fish & Wildlife that spoke briefly about fishing in Kentucky.  She also had a fun casting game for the kids to try out and gave tips as the kids practiced.  Cabela's provided a few treats to go along with the fishing theme - shark gummies and worm gummies!

Each child participant received a (really nice) fishing pole, sunglasses and fishing bobber to take home!  This was a great surprise for all of us.  The Cabela's representative told us that there will be something special after each Explorer Program.

 photo schedule_zps5znaae4d.jpgThe fun, hands-on experience was amazing, the extra gifts were great bonuses to this program.  We love that this is an evening program and it incorporates learning about the outdoors through fun and educational activities.

There are a variety of topics scheduled for the program, so be sure to check out their calendar!  The program runs through July 12th, is completely free and open to all ages!  You do not have to pre-register for the event.

Cabela's is a short drive outside of Oldham County and is located at 5100 Norton Healthcare Blvd. Louisville, KY 40241.

Pickleball at Wendell Moore Park

 photo PICKLEBALL5_zpscmg5nwkv.png

If you haven't heard, there are new Pickleball courts at Wendell Moore Park in LaGrange!  We had never played before, so we checked it out over the weekend.

 photo runing_zpso8nodnw1.jpgBecause the courts are still fairly new, I had to contact the John W. Black Community Center for information on how to set up a time to play.  Mr. Bill Hopkins helped coordinate the Pickleball courts and he was my main contact.

Currently, there is outdoor play scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday evenings 6-9pm and Saturday mornings 9am-12pm at Wendell Moore.  This is the schedule for June & July. (This is always subject to change without us knowing, so please double check with the park before making a trip.)  We understand that it's a walk-up basis at the moment and the future plan is to have the nets on-site in a lockbox for the public to use.  (*6/16 update: the lockbox system is now in place.) Once the lockbox system is in place, you will need to know how to assemble the net.  The game is played on a court half the size of a tennis court.

Mr. Hopkins suggested that we watch some YouTube videos on the sport and to check out to learn more about the rules.  After watching some of the videos and reading some information, we found that there is a lot more to Pickleball than we originally assumed.  The sport has elements of tennis, badminton and table tennis, but don't be fooled - it is it's own game!

 photo net_zpswgchamwj.jpgWe can't possibly begin to pretend we are experts on Pickleball, but we can tell you that new players must learn about "the kitchen," the importance of the bounce rules and the funny way of calling out the score before each serve.  A few elements will become more natural as you start to practice on the court.  New players will soon learn that power isn't as important as it is in tennis, finesse is your friend, the game is played near the net, you must be quick, the wiffle-like ball can trick you and there's not much bounce to the ball either.

We had a lot of fun during our first experience with Pickleball.  There are two courts at Wendell Moore Park.  The LaGrange Community Center has three indoor courts and scheduled times to play and train also.  Training is Tuesday mornings at the LaGrange Community Center.  You can play for free at both places, but you will need to bring your own paddle and balls to Wendell Moore Park.  (We were able to find a set for under $20 at Dick's Sporting Goods.)

We are excited for this new addition to the Oldham County Parks & Rec system.  Make sure you watch their Facebook page and website for future information on the developing program.  Give Pickleball a try!

Disc Golf at Wendell Moore Park

 photo Disc Golf_zpsexfsrw3f.png

Wendell Moore Park in LaGrange now has disc golf!  Thanks to a local Eagle Scout's service project, an 18 hole course was designed and installed at the park this Spring.  We love any opportunity for our family to get outside together so we decided to try disc golf together.  We would recommend checking out this website for information about the sport before playing.

None of us had tried the sport before, so we asked our experienced friends to come along too.  Our families met near the football field at the first hole and were soon on our way! 

Here are a few things we think beginners should know before heading to the Wendell Moore course:

1. You have to bring your own discs.  We were so inexperienced, that we didn't realize that there are actual discs (similar to a Frisbee) for this sport.  We purchased 3 from Academy Sports for around $10.  The discs are marked for different ranges (similar to golf clubs).  You should also be prepared to maybe lose a disc or two when you're first learning how to properly throw them.

2.  There is a lot of walking.  Most of the time, you can see the target from where you start your first throw, but you should be prepared to walk a lot.  The Wendell Moore course has 18 holes so it's quite spread out.  Each hole has a sign with a description of where the target is located and how far away it is.  These were helpful when we couldn't actually see the target from the tee.  We did wish we had a map of the entire course when we were playing.

image description image description

3.  Be prepared to encounter a variety of terrain changes.  Hole 1 will seem like a breeze, but be prepared for an intense and difficult course - especially if you are new to the sport.  Expect to walk and throw up steep hills and over creeks.  Some of the targets are positioned between and around trees.  The course is surrounded by trees and tall weeds, so you might lose a disc or two.  Just make sure you keep an eye on where the disc lands so you can find it.  It's also best to keep an eye out for poison ivy.  We saw quite a bit during our game.

4.  Bring some water along and use the restroom before you begin.  The course is set away from the playground and Aquatic Center so water fountains and restrooms are not nearby.

5.  It's a lot of fun!  Because most of us were inexperienced and we were including our kids in the fun, we decided to do a scramble type game. This is where everyone on the team throws a disc and the closest disc is where you start your next throw.  The kids had a blast having a try at disc golf!  We didn't really keep track of our scores, but you can if you really want to be competitive.  Scores are kept similar to golf, where the fewest number of throws is best.  We love that the course allowed us to see areas of Wendell Moore Park that we hadn't explored before.  A lot of the course runs along the bike and walking path and some targets are near the lake too.

Every first weekend in June, the Arts Association of Oldham County hosts the Arts on the Green in Downtown LaGrange.  Here's why we love it!

Activities for Kids!
Not only is the festival a great place to expose children to various art forms, there are ways for children to have a hands-on experience.  Children are encouraged to participate in the notecard contest.  Prizes are awarded in the fall for different age categories and the winner's artwork is featured on the Arts on the Green notecards for the next year.  There is also face painting, other children's activities and some vendors even allow children to try their art medium.

The Art!
The festival has over 150+ local and national artists.  You can find anything from paintings, jewelry, woodwork, candles, pottery and so much more!  Prices vary among the artwork too-you can buy a major piece or keep it simple with some elegant smelling soap for your home or as a gift.

The Colonial Trade Faire!
Double festival bonus!  This festival is held in conjunction with the Arts on the Green at the Oldham County History Center.  There is an 18th Century camp with settlers selling 18th century ware, music, cannon demonstrations and other on-going heritage demonstrations!  Art and history together!

The Food & Entertainment!
Various food vendors will be set up during the festival.  Enjoy BBQ, Greek food, ice cream, nuts and other delicious food. Festival goers can "wine down" with wine and beer while listening to music near the square's gazebo.

Main Street!
Downtown LaGrange has many unique stores and restaurants to also visit while you are at Arts on the Green!  Visit Addies Good(s) to see merchandise from 15 different countries or Gallery 104 to see other artwork.  Main Street also has antiques, consignment, toys, boutiques, coffee and so much more. It's worth the walk!  You might even see a train come down Main Street while you're there!
