There's no reason to be disappointed if you failed to receive invitations to one of many cookouts going on in Louisville for Labor Day. Not everything is closed. I'm hosting a Labor Day smorgasbord of original art and entertainment known as Sub Rosa: The Gypsie Courtyard where there is never a cover charge, and you’re invited. You can save your money for your beverages.
Your entry fee of zero dollars gets you a tasty main musical dish of one local band known as Stoic Static, while Erica Lawson will be serving up a steamy side of erotic poetry. In addition to our featured entertainment, there is always a buffet of talented open mic performances whose talents span comedy, poetry, music and more.
This is all going down at Zazoo's Bar and Grill, which is located at 102 Bauer Ave in St. Matthews near the corner of Frankfort Avenue. Stop by and see why Zazoo’s is such a popular place to be on Monday nights.
If you're not familiar with Zazoo's Bar and Grill, you'll quickly see why it's a great place in Louisville to spend Labor Day. The shotgun layout of the bar makes it great for keeping the focus pointed towards the entertainment, which is on a medium sized stage in the front of the bar. The well lit stage with speakers on either side ensures the audience is able to see and hear the entertainment unlike some venues where people have to strain. Zazoo’s offers an array of food and drinks, and has a small patio out front for smokers or those more interested in enjoying the fall weather.
Zazoo’s also has an upstairs with a separate bar for those interested in hosting private events. Mondays are always interesting at Zazoo’s and are frequented by a variety of people ranging from professionals to artists. If you’ve never seen Sub Rosa: The Gypsie Courtyard, Labor Day is the perfect time to give it a try. It is the wildest variety show in town.
