Ramsi’s Cafe on the World #ThursdayDoors

I spent the night with #4 Daughter, the amazing Sara Marian, and her amazing fella, Zak. They took me out to eat at Ramsi’s Cafe on the World, which is actually on Bardstown Road but whatever. It looks very upscale, but it’s super food for regular people. Not that you can spit on the floor or anything, but it isn’t someplace Frasier and Niles would gloat over.

ANYWAY, imagine my delight, when I found that Ramsi’s is not only home to great food, but also to a plethora (GOD, I love that word!) of doors.

The entrance.

Angels. Not weeping.

And the all these!

On the way out, a lighted fountain!

Le sigh.

And the door out.

Now, this picture is only funny if you’re familiar with the Louisville’s Hometown Heroes campaign. If you don’t want to follow the link, I’ll just tell you that there are these YUGE vinyl banners all over Louisville with pictures of famous and/or important people who were born or lived a long time or claimed Louisville. So, this.

Hunter’s Gonzoville

Yes, boys and girls, Hunter S. Thompson was born in Louisville. Incidentally, Johnny Depp, who played him in a movie, was also born in Kentucky.

A WRITING PROMPT BASED ON MY POST: A character has a plethora of doors among which to choose.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Haha! I’m not into where Frasier and Niles dine. Although, I wouldn’t wanna dine at Martin’s place where they wheel around cuts of beef and cut off ties, either…
    Gorgeous outdoor scene there! That is a plethora! And I LOVE the banners. I love Louisville.

    I really really like these doors! Iā€™m sure Fraiser and Niles would approve. I particularly like the doors with the metal grills.

    You certainly hit the door jackpot on this outing. Those “just for looks” ones leaning against that wall are the cream of this crop.
    Sounds like a fun evening šŸ™‚

    Coincidentally I used “plethora” this week… I think it has to now be a door-word…. when you are immersed in so many doors you can’t cut off… Nice doors you found Marian, but whats with the new word Yuge? Is it a sign of the times? šŸ™‚

      I saw that you used “plethora,” too! Maybe “plethora” is the new “whatevs”. lol! I agree — it needs to be a door-word. As for “yuge,” in some parts of America, people don’t sound the “h” in “huge,” and it comes out sounding like “yuge.” At least two of our most recent presidential candidates said it.

    Ooh, I really like the fountain, and the way out door! I too think Niles, and Fraiser would approve.
