Sponsored by Renaissance Covington and its streetmates on Pike, Mister Softee was handing out free cones last Friday. Pike St. on a late Friday afternoon/early evening is still a little quiet. But big changes are coming with a hotel and apartment. Pike St won't be so sleepy in a year or so. But while it is it is kinda cool that an event on a Friday still feels social. I still remember years ago when Final Friday in OTR felt just like this.
Walking along Fairfield Ave looking for the Old Kentucky Maker's Market, we were assaulted with traffic noise the whole way. I have to say it was the most unusual experience to have that disappear and be replaced with laughter and people talking as we approached Johnson Alley. Bellevue has to be pretty happy with the turnout which isn't really that unexpected with how walkable the place is.
