where the rehabs
Major Renovation and new constructionTwo new LoTo Structures are everywhere.

Next we took leisurely showers (no photos of that, sorry to disappoint you) and surfed the internet.
Next came a knock on the door and a house warming giftHouse Warming Gift from our funny and talkative neighbor Donna Maria,


After Donna Maria's visit, we were off to the Springtime Sampler at City Hall's
beautiful park. (no photos...sorry)
Had some Sushi and Jambalya from the Cafe Minou booth...
looked at some good art, some really bad art, smelled some candles and sampled some dips made from fresh herbs and listened to the Paducah Symphony Orchestra play. They were impressive!

Then off to get some dinner.
(Yes. we were still hungry after our springtime samples...)
We chose Moss Rose Cafebecause of its name and location. It's tucked down a little cobblestone alley between some other neat shops and restaurants. Once inside, it was mainly a biker bar, but all sorts of people were inside and it was friendly. We felt right at home and of course, I combined two orders and asked for a buffalo chicken salad with bleu cheese.
It was just what I was hoping for, and never on the menu.

Next, time for the movies.. we walked about 100 steps and were at Maiden Alley Cinema where we watched Melinda and Melinda, the new Woody Allen movie. It was funny and featured Will Ferrell who we both absolutely adore. He's such a lovable wierdo.

After the movies Downtown After Dinner Where it's at---was in full swing. This occurs every Saturday night from late spring to early fall.
6 blocks of Main Street
are blocked off and you will find street musicans , performers,
Freeze Model Street Performer cloggers,
Cloggers!
horse and buggies, hot rods, motorcycles,Bikers
Mormon's handing out pamphlets, (Mark woun't let me take a photo of that, either) and it goes without mentioning, one of those big blow up dancing things.
Dancing Air Man You can be assured there is party going on when you see one of these guys.

We walked around and enjoyed the sights,Interesting Window Display the dancers, Dancin' in the Streets and the energy of the crowd.Satuday Night Downtown

Then home to Jefferson Street where we watched Bridget Jones Diary, the second. It was enjoyable... kinda stupid, kinda funny. Not hard to follow. Things work out for Bridge. Perfect for the end of a long day.

SO that's our first free Saturday in Paducah. Can't wait until the music festival next week.
Sure none of you want to come on down???

Wow! You've become quite the ambassador for Paducah. It looks like a regular Mardi Gras or something. Keep it up and you may find yourself working for the 'Paducah Marketing Committee'. It really does look like a lot of fun!
