Highlands – As the morning of the election results rolled in, Amy McGraths supporters spilled into the streets demanding the Panera Bread in the Highlands reopen.  The once famous soup and bread bowl store closed their doors 2 weeks ago during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

“This is unreal”, said one McGrath supporter traveling from Norton Commons™.  “Definitely a pivotal moment for the city”.

The 3000 square foot restaurant opened up in 2014 serving mostly artisanal bread and soup served inside of it.  Many in the surrounding community believe the departure will be felt for years to come.

16 year old Chelsie White from the Indian Hills neighborhood showed up with her mother.

“I finally have worthwhile cause to show up and fight for,” said White.  “It feels really powerful.”

The crowd circled the Panera Bread for hours on Tuesday morning demanding answers to the recently closed Highlands staple.  Police cars showed up shortly after, surrounding the protesters.

“These people have a right to exercise their first amendment”, said officer Paul Chatsworth.  “I can’t imagine what these people are going through.”

Mayor Fischer is expected to hold a press conference addressing the closure later today, tweeting earlier “I’m on the phone with Panera Bread right now everyone hang tight.”

Amy McGrath is scheduled to visit the enraged crowd later today to support her followers, briefly addressing the situation on her twitter this morning.

Edward Lee to have name legally changed to “Yes Chef”


Local celebrity chef Edward Lee announced on social media this week that he’s going to officially change his name to “Yes Chef”.  After years of toying with idea, he’s finally filing the necessary paperwork tomorrow morning at the court house.

“It’s time”, said Lee.  “I’m about to turn 47, I’ve made tons of aioli.  I don’t know any other city where this has gone on as long as it has.

The longtime Chef says people have been calling him all kind of names for as long as he can remember.

“I’m not just a guy that you’re “cool” with.” said Lee.  “When I ask you a question don’t just look at me and say, “yeah”.  Like wtf?  I know most people in Louisville just go about their days going to Speedway and Kroger.  I’m like hanging with real dudes a lot, and my shit is sick.”

The city has informed Edward Lee that it could take up to 6 weeks for the new name to be official.   Mr. Lee says it couldn’t happen sooner.

“If you see me in the street, just holler Yes Chef at me, I think it’s a respect thing”, said Lee.  “I hope the city is chill about it.  I hope people can be mature about the whole thing and know this is completely normal in every other major city.  It’s not a big deal.”

Lee will debut his new name at Bourbon & Beyond this summer and plans to also announce a new restaurant concept where he adds bourbon to dishes.



Louisville – This morning Bellermine officials announced mens rowing team Coach, Joseph Taylor, provided rides to games in his 1995 Ford Escort to his players for the last four years. It’s not clear yet if the 43 year old coach will face any disciplinary actions, but the university says they’re looking into the matter.

“As of right now Coach Taylor isn’t denying any of this happened, he’s just confused why we’re holding a press conference,” said Bellarmine’s spokesman Pat Hartman.  “In the end, we all just want the truth.  If Coach Taylor does indeed drive an 95′ Ford Escort, well then people aught to know about that.”

Coach Taylor was not available for comment, but we were able to obtain a picture of his car which does appear to be an 95′ Ford Escort.

He has returned to Sweden very inspired and started designing a line of clothing called Achü + Blesü all centered on his visit to Louisville and everything he learned. Please check out his Facebook page and stop by Block Party Handmade Boutique to pick up one of his t-shirts.

HIGHLANDS – Yesterday around 3 pm a time traveling skateboarder, Rickey Thrash, emerged from a portal in an alley behind Comfy Cow.  The 15 year old man reportedly stood up slowly, dusting off his jean jacket as he looked curiously at a young girl riding by on a razor.   Thrash began skateboarding through the highlands completely distracted, bumping into people as one man allegedly shouted “hey watch it buddy”.

“I just wanna get a slice of dough,” said Thrash.  “Where the hell did all the Pizza Huts in this town skid off to?”

Thrash stumbled into a Pizza Hut express off of Preston Highway eventually, but said it was weak as hell.

“Where the hell is Golden Axe?”, Thrash asked the 24 year old manager taking his order.  “Listen old man, just get me a pizza with the works and I’ll get out of here.  This place is cashed.”

Mayor Fischer Tells The Clifton Neighborhood To Shut Down All Streets Immediately So This Guy Can Grill Pizzas


CLIFTON – Mayor Fischer called an urgent press meeting yesterday demanding law enforcement and city officials close down the entire Clifton neighborhood. The announcement came after a Louisville man on Facebook made a post saying, “I’ll be grilling some pizzas outside of Guestroom Records this morning, come say hi”.

St. Matthews police department said they had a 10 block radius completely shut down 45 minutes after the post surfaced on Facebook, but some residents are saying that is simply unacceptable.

“I saw Jeff’s post on Facebook and decided I would stop by for a slice while taking my dog for a walk”, said Clifton resident Randy Schneider. “I could have easily been struck by a car, it was nuts. Why should I have to walk down the sidewalk in my own neighborhood?”.

Schneider wasn’t the only Clifton resident confused while cars went zipping by them as they strolled through the streets.

“Tell me this, why was the street even open to begin with?” said Props Barber Shop owner Wayne Trout. “We had announced we were having a food truck rally and a bluegrass band in front of our shop two hours before the grilled pizza was announced.”

Mayor Fischer replied to the criticism this morning saying the city has been working tirelessly to shut down as many streets as they can over the past year.

“I don’t care if it’s a Jeff making pizzas on a grill in Clifton or the Double Dare Man competition we had last weekend downtown”, said Fischer. “I want everyone to know we’ll shut it all down all the time, but every street doesn’t get closed overnight. These things take time.”
