Let’s review the questions.

  1. What now-closed Louisville restaurant was known for its kitschy decor and was featured on the Oprah Winfrey show in a best mac and cheese competition?
  2. This Grammy-nominated rapper attended Iroquois High School and, in 2016, received the key to the city from Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer. What is his name?
  3. A CVS Pharmacy now occupies the building at 501 S. 4th street (the corner of 4th and Muhammad Ali Blvd). It used to be the location of flagship department store that was known for its window displays back in the day. Can you name the store?

And here are the answers:

  1. Lynn’s Paradise Cafe–Lynn Winter, founder and chef of the restaurant, was also featured on an episode of Throwdown with Bobby Flay whom she defeated in a breakfast contest. The restaurant closed in 2013 amidst a controversy over their tipping policies. (Oh yeah, if you want that Mac and Cheese recipe, you can find it here.)
  2. Bryson Tiller–Tiller started his career in 2011, releasing the debut mixtape titled Killer Instinct Vol.1. Tiller initially gained notable recognition following the release of his debut single, “Don’t,” which peaked at number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100.
  3. Stewart’s Dry GoodsThe store had six floors and included the Orchid Room, a restaurant that was decorated in the art deco style of the 1940s. Here’s one of the window displays:
