Dry Ground Brewing Company, Paducah, KY

PADUCAH, KY – The Dry Ground Brewing Company serves a variety of craft beers and house brews in a industrial setting located in the Coca-Cola Bottling Plant, the same building where the Mellow Mushroom resides at 3121 Broadway Street in Paducah, KY.

The plant was originally built in 1939 by Luther Carson. The building was vacant for seven years before the owners of the Mellow Mushroom purchased it and made it new again.

HUMOR: On the day of Paducah’s first snowfall on Jan 12, 2018, Dry Ground Brewery announced on their Facebook page, “We are OPEN today because people gotta have beer.” That put a smile on my face. Loved it!

First Snow in Paducah 2018

PADUCAH, KY –  The first snowfall in Paducah happened on January 12, 2018. There was a layer of ice covered with snow so everyone was being extra cautious driving nice and slow.

The city did a great job keeping the roads clear downtown as you can see in the photos. Even though, many businesses were closed and some opened but closed early that day. The 24-hour McDonald’s on Hinkleville Road was closed when I drove by it around 5:30 pm as well.

The good news was that Dry Ground Brewery announced earlier that day that they would not be closing since people still drink beer when it snows. That one put a smile of my face. Loved it!

The photos below were taken on January 12, 2018 around 5:15 PM in downtown Paducah with a temp around 19 degrees.

Paducah Antique Mall – Paducah

PADUCAH, KY – Paducah Antique Mall is a neatly organized vintage store in a huge 7500-square-feet historic building located at 407 Broadway Street in downtown Paducah, KY.

I think of the Paducah Antique Mall as a vintage gift shop. It’s got older stuff that reminds us old fogies the days of our youth. It was like walking down memory when I spotted some old toys similar to what me and my late brother Joe use to play with as children.

The Paducah Antique Mall has just about everything and carries seasonal items as well. The mall features antiques, vintage, collectibles and sometimes new items.

I wanted to thank the gentleman (i forgot your name…sorry) for being so nice. It was really nice talking to ya. I will be back soon for some more comics 🙂
