Food. Community. Connection.

Posted by chaska on April 24, 2010


FOOD. COMMUNITY. CONNECTION. Bon Vivant Savant is evolving and we couldn’t be more excited. The website you are currently viewing will be changing – radically – in about four weeks. We’ll be posting an image of the new design, just a little temptation for you, just after Derby. And believe me, I think you’ll be excited too. Don’t worry though, our great dining events like the Supper Speakeasy and Wine & Wisdoms aren’t going anywhere. We’re still fully dedicated to our dining club members, but we’re also developing great in-home parties with BVS@Home as well as developing our website into a fully interactive online, lifestyle magazine that will focus not only on Kentuckiana, but will also grow to incorporate Lexington, Northern KY, Cincinnati and the surrounding regions. We’ll bring you the best our community has to offer: food, arts & entertainment, people – all in the vein of living well and living wisely!

Interested in contributing? We’ve got some great contributors lined up already (we’ll be announcing more after Derby), but we’d like to hear from you, our readers. We’re looking for great stories, photos or videos on local life – whatever that means for you.¬† Want to share your passion for art, music, food, your city, your job, your family, your volunteer work? Great, it’s all about living life to its fullest. Full credit and appropriate links will be given for all content utilized by the site. Contact me directly for more info.

Membership has its privileges

Posted by chaska on July 25, 2008

Ah, membership has its privileges. And here at BVS it’s no different. For the moment, we are building from the ground up. The first 20 members who joined at the very beginning have been grandfathered in as Lifetime Members… and now, I’m extending that to the next 100 members to join as well. Why would I do this? It’s simple really. You have to start somewhere and I have ideas just brimming and bubbling and excitedly await the ability to make them a reality. Here’s what I have in mind, to give you a peek as well as the perks included in membership:

Event ideas/hopes

  • Singles events, couples events, single parents, boomers, etc…
  • Wine classes
  • Cooking classes
  • Travel and weekends away packages
  • Dinners and Happy Hours for members only

General Perks

  • Area Discounts (currently in partnership with the Highland VIP card while we grow)
  • National Discounts
  • Free entrance to certain events, like movie nights
  • No additional event fees on events open to the public
  • Advance notice of events when there are limited reservations
  • Personalized attention at events and hosts to help make introductions, so you never have to fear coming to an event alone
  • If you’re single, you also have access to all travel and events at Single Gourmet chapters nationwide
  • Couples – never fear, often travel offered by the Single Gourmet Chapters is also available to you too. Check with the Chicago or NYC chapters for possibilities.

So, join now and enjoy the benefits of what is soon to be Louisville’s premier dining and social networking group.
