    Posted: 25 Apr 2011 at 10:37am

The 2011 Kentcucy Derby gathering is Friday, May 6th!  I'll be getting there a few minutes before 7:00PM EST.   I am sticking with Johnny V's since there is some familiarity with it by a some of the players coming.  Remember - if you think you may showing up - please  let me know!  The location is :

Johnny V's 
10509 Watterson Trail
Louisville, KY 40299
(502) 267-0900
 
From the Churchill Downs:

There are a couple of primary ways to get on the expressway depending on which street you end up taking out of Churchill downs.
 
If you are on Central avenue heading east :
pass the 4th street, 3rd street, and Floyd intersections.  The next street is Crittenden Drive.  Make a left.  Go up about ~1000 ft and turn right onto I65 South.  Follow the I65 south directions from the track below.

If you are on Longfield heading east : Longfield turns into 4th street as the street curves south.  Take 4th street to Central.  Turn right on Central. Pass the 3rd street, and Floyd intersections.  The next street is Crittenden Drive.  Make a left.  Go up about ~1000 feet and turn right onto I65 South.  Follow the I65 south directions from the track below.

If you are on Central avenue OR Longfield heading west : Go to Taylor Boulevard (the first main street).  Make a left.  Follow Taylor Bloulevard to I-264 east.  Take I264 east about 2 miles up and get onto I-65 South.  Follow the I65 south directions from the track  below.
 
I65 South Instructions From the Track:
 
Take the Gene Snyder / KY-841 / I-265 East (I think this will be exit 125)
Drive about 12 Miles
Take exit 23 towards Jeffersontown
At the end of the ramp, turn left: this is Taylorsville Road
Watterson Trail will be at a red light about 3 miles down.  There is an El Nopal (NOT the one we went too last year) on your right.  You can see Johnny V's across from the light on your right at the corner of Watterson Trail.  There is a Hardwar Store in the same strip mall.  You can park in the back.  If you see a KFC on your left, you've gone a hair too far.  

If you are heading straight to the gathering or not coming from Churchill :

From I-65 South (Indianapolis)

I will give you 2 sets of directions. The quickest is if you make the transfer onto I-64 East immediately after crossing into Louisville. If you do so, simply use the I-64 east directions above at this point.

If you miss that, or prefer not to take that route for some reason :

Continue taking I-65 South
Drive about 10 Miles
Take the Gene Snyder / KY-841 / I-265 East (I think this will be exit 125)
Drive about 12 Miles
Take exit 23 towards Jeffersontown
At the end of the ramp, turn left : this is Taylorsville Road

Watterson Trail will be at a red light about 3 miles down.  There is an El Nopal (NOT the one we went to a couple of years ago) on your right.  You can see Johnny V's across from the light on your right at the corner of Watterson Trail.  There is a King Southern bank in the same strip mall.  You can park in the back.  If you pass a KFC on your left, you've gone a hair too far.   
Thanks, and we hope to see some new and familiar faces there!
