31 Day of Louisville Love: The Back Door -

ljgolden:

The Back Door is a windowless dive bar in a strip mall. I love it.

It’s a strange place and a required stop for our out-of-town visitors (well, not my parents). It’s open until 4 a.m., though I’ve only made it to 3:30. They have strong, cheap drinks — there’s always a $2.75 special — and good…

Fear and Loathing in the ‘VilleHunter Thompson’s barbed 1970 assault on the Kentucky Derby—the holiest of events in Louisville—heralded a new journalistic approach. Dubbed Gonzo journalism, it featured a frenzied first person narrative teetering between fact and fiction. Although the Derby article did little to endear Thompson to residents of his home town, the friction wasn’t new. Thompson’s youthful antics in the genteel Cherokee Hills neighborhood included shooting off guns in his bedroom and painting the gates of hell on the family’s living room floor. Although he was a member of his school’s prestigious Athenaeum Literary Association, he dropped out of high school after an arrest for abetting a robbery. Thompson joined the air force and left the ‘Ville for good. For years, the city barely acknowledged their prodigal son but recently the tide has begun to turn. Louisville’s annual Gonzo Fest celebrates the lasting contributions Thompson has made to literary culture.
