Frankfort’s Fishing Reels: Jewels of the Bluegrass

Frankfort has a very unique place in history as being the town where the bait casting fishing reel was perfected and first produced. Every place has its historic event or figure, but only we have this distinction. It was a Frankfort industry for over 100 years. Local craftsmen handmade these gems to fish the renowned streams of central Kentucky. Their reputation for quality and beauty was recognized around the world.

A visit to the savory soul foods of Hungary begins the series Jan. 12-13, accompanied by optional regional beers paired by our Chief Operating Officer Doug Mullins, and his wife, Janet, who toured Hungary extensively via the Danube River last summer.

“A love of great food and new experiences led Janet and me to take a cruise on one of Europe’s great rivers,” Mullins said. “The Danube was a delight, from the Parliament in Budapest and the palaces of Vienna, to the castles and abbeys of the Wachau Valley. We dined on everything from goulash and schnitzel to smoked trout and wild boar while enjoying lagers, weiss, dunkel and rauchbier, as well as an incredible selection of local wines. Prost! Or, for my Hungarian friends, Egészségére.”

Vegetarian options always available. Specially paired beers and wines available for Hungarian dinner. Tickets are $45 and include tax and gratuity. For reservations visit Eventbrite, http://bit.ly/2C1dLpw or go to hollyhillinn.com/reservations.
