    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.

    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.
