Asian Wok and Friends #ThursdayDoors

For Janie Day one month, we went to the Asian Wok. It was belicious!!! The food was really good, and so so so pretty. And they have bubble tea! Yay!!!

I took pictures of doors, of course.

Across the street, I saw a cornucopia of doors.

Our destination shares a big building with two other business.

Escape Lou is one of those escape room thingies. I think that would be so much fun! It sounds like a Myst game, only in real life. And with less interesting graphics. And without Brad Dourif. I wonder if they have Easter Eggs?


On the other side is 5-0-Lou, a shop of “a collection of Louisville locally made gifts, Louisville and Kentucky souvenirs, housewares, jewelry, food, artwork and apparel.” In case you wonder about the name, it isn’t a reference to a Hawaiian cop show. 502 is Louisville’s area code.

And so we come to our destination.

But why are all the doors and big windows the same?

BOOM! Because the building used to be a car thing! Repurposing, mon amour!

And here’s a picture of the wall and a Joey light, just because.


Thursday Doors is the brainchild of Norm Frampton, photographer extraordinaire. Visit his site, enjoy his wonderful photographs, follow his directions, and enter a world of doors.

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.

    A fun selection of doors. Nothing better than finding a good restaurant. We have a microbrewery that’s inside an old former service station. I love to see things like that happening, too.

    Fun post. In the third shot, is that a bench with the back of an old pick-up used as the backrest? Very original idea – that looks so cool!

      Norm that’s exactly what it is! Very Kentucky, too. Kentucky has always been a hotbed of repurposing. We didn’t call it that, though; we called it making do. Kentucky is so hip, we were using Mason jars for glasses before it was cool.
