A Big Lebowski Event at Carmichael's

The day before the 11th Annual Lebowski Fest kicks off, Carmichael's will host author and editor Peter S. Fosl for a signing and reading of his new book The Big Lebowski and Philosophy. Is abiding a virtue? Does Walter's aggression illustrate the principles of just war theory? Does bowling help Donny, Walter and the Dude resist nihilism? Does the Dude exemplify the Taoist way of life? Is the Dude a feminist ally? Come to Carmichael's and find out.

Tedeschi Trucks Band at Iroquois Amphitheater

In June 7, 2011 Tedeschi Trucks Band released its debut album, Revelator, which Rolling Stone referred to as a “masterpiece” and gave the album four out of five stars. And this February, Revelator won a Grammy for Best Blues Album of the Year. TTB's second album, Everybody’s Talkin’, is a collection of live recordings from a week of shows. Everybody’s Talkin’ is both a catalog of a triumphant year of growth and a great listening experience. Tracks flow one into the next with the collective spirit and lift of a typical TTB concert— raising the roof with a Saturday night sense of abandon and gently concluding with a Sunday morning spiritual.

Snap a photo at 2:20 p.m. of anything in Kentucky

This Friday, Louisville.com is giving you the opportunity to show off your home state. Since Kentucky just turned 220, let’s celebrate by gathering pictures of the commonwealth at one precise minute—at 2:20 p.m. on July 20, snap a candid photo of anything happening in Kentucky. Seriously, anything (well, that's not obscene). The goal is to keep it simple and showcase everyday Kentucky.  Then, e-mail your candid shot to zach@louisville.com so we can post it on our Pinterest page. And the best shots will be showcased on our website.

Ninth Annual Dr. Ed Morgan/Kiwanis Grand Slam Four Mile Run/Walk

Named in honor of Dr. Edgar Morgan, Sr., a well-known Louisville family physician and long-time member of the Kiwanis Club, this four-mile run/walk benefits Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana and The Heuser Hearing and Language Academy. At the age of 66, the retired Dr. Morgan took up running and soon completed his first of many marathons, including the prestigious New York and Boston Marathons. Dr. Morgan became an advocate for the Louisville running community, and went on to compete in hundreds of area road races well into his eighties. Dr. Morgan co-founded the Louisville Kiwanis Grand Slam 4 Mile race in 2003 and was an active participant until his passing at age 92 in 2011. Walk in registration is available at Fleet Feet Sports, 2239 Taylorsville Road (502-479-URUN), through 7 p.m. Friday, July 20. All registrants will receive a race t-shirt and one ticket to Saturday evening’s Louisville Bats game. The overall top male and female race finishers will receive a Louisville Slugger baseball bat and will throw out the first pitch at the Bats game.

The awards presentation will begin at 9:15 a.m. at Slugger Field, and a free pancake breakfast will take place there as well.
