Post 'em here, no additional permission needed, but please remember to follow the usual two rules: (1) Put the restaurant name in the subject line, and (2) tone down the PR language and hype. Just the facts, please, without the superlatives.

Thunder at Parlour and Portage House

by Robin Garr » Thu Apr 13, 2017 4:14 pm

Parlour and Portage House in Southern Indiana will offer afternoon and evening events April 22 during the air show and Thunder Over Louisville fireworks.

Parlour, the new pizzeria, beer garden, and cocktail lounge which opened April 5 at the foot of the Big Four Bridge in Jeffersonville, has organized a craft brew festival. Six regional beer producers including Sun King from Indianapolis; Daredevil from Speedway, IN; Upland from Bloomington, IN; New Albanian from New Albany, IN; and Against the Grain and Falls City from Louisville, will be serving up brews under tents in a lawn area with three fire pits and numerous beer garden tables. Doors open at 11 a.m. and tickets are available at the door for $30. The price includes two regional drafts. Pizza-by-the-slice, fresh from the restaurant’s 8,000-pound Italian oven, will be sold. Parlour is on the grounds of the Historic Duffy Hancock House, a restored 1836 neoclassical mansion at 131 W. Chestnut Street in Jeffersonville.

Portage House will hold a special dinner with oyster and sparkling wine pairings on the veranda of the restored late 19th century home. The restaurant, which opened October 27, is on the riverbank in Jeffersonville at 117 E. Riverside Drive, just a few hundred yards from the Thunder launch site on the Big Four Bridge. The 40-seat veranda offers unobstructed views of the show and the Louisville skyline. A ticket is $150, and includes a prime viewing seat along with six Connecticut Blue Point Oysters and a glass of Piper-Heidsieck. Chef Paul Skulas will also offer his full menu of Midwestern cuisine from Indiana and Kentucky farms. Favorites include grilled cheese topped with a fried egg, drizzled in sorghum and stuffed with goat cheese; a fried pork chop sandwich; and whole roasted trout. Call (812) 725-0435 to reserve tickets on the veranda.

River House Restaurant & Raw Bar and Levee at the River House will host several opportunities for people to enjoy Derby week on the riverfront. Beginning Tuesday, May 2, a 200-foot tent will cover the outdoor patio of both restaurants overlooking the Ohio River so guests can enjoy the riverfront from an elevated site during events like the Great Steamboat Race. The regular menu will be available at River House each night, except for May 6 (Derby Day) when a special prix fixe menu will be offered. Levee at the River House will feature live entertainment and the regular menu each night, with a $10 cover charge ($20 on Oaks night) and no reservations required.

Special Derby week activities at the two restaurants are:

Wednesday, May 3 - The Great Steamboat Race
Reservations are recommended for the outdoor tables and indoor tables adjacent to the floor-to-ceiling windows ($25 per person reservation fee) at River House. Levee will open early at 3pm and host live entertainment from Artie Dean Harris beginning at 4:30pm and Josh Logan & Olivia Henken from NBC's The Voice beginning at 9pm. Cover charge is $10 beginning at 7pm.

What began as a tradition for Billy Rapaport, Emmy-winning freelance field producer for NBC's Kentucky Derby coverage, and friends to enjoy a place to relax after a long week at the track, has become a party for anyone with energy left after the 143rrd Kentucky Derby. Live entertainment by Louisville Fats and the Rhythm Cats will begin at 10pm, with cover charge of $10 beginning at 7.
