SNDF Lebowski Night
The big event this evening is the SNDF annual fundraiser. This year’s theme is “Lebowski Night” in honor of the film and Lebowski Fest, which is a huge event founded in Louisville. For $30, you’ll get free drinks and bowling at The Sports & Social Club from 9-11 p.m. The money raised helps to fund many of the educational experiences that SND members benefit from.
Muhammad Ali Center
The Ali Center is across the lawn from the west side of the Galt House Hotel. If you go to the second floor of the west tower at the Galt, find the double doors on the south end of the lobby to find the quickest route to the Ali Center.
Much like yesterday — clear skies with a high of 54 degrees.
Last night we launched the SND Live site, where you’ll see our favorite tweets and Instagrams from the workshop. Make sure to use #sndlou so we can include yours.
