Great Moments in White Trash
In anticipation of the Iron Quarter and City Center projects coming to downtown Louisville, White Castle HQ has decided to demolish its store at First and Market Streets. But fear not, you foodies who like your beef steamed, square, and partially pre-digested. In its place the company will build the chain's largest White Castle.
The restaurant (if by "restaurant" you mean White Castle) has long been a favorite stop for celebrities (if by "celebrities" you mean Kid Rock). The Courier-Journal cites White Castle spokesman Eddie Smith:
"The Market Street store has become a favorite haunt for celebrities in Louisville for the Kentucky Derby, Smith said, including Kid Rock, who several years ago treated White Castle customers to free food and drinks.
Last year, Smith said, the rocker ordered through the drive-through -- and left one worker a sizable bonus.
"'He gave her a big enough tip to buy a prom dress,' he said."
