Interaction with Guests

jon and lara are best friends and roommates extraordinaire. lara is a history professor and jon works in natural foods. we were both raised in MN and spent the last 12 years in chicago. as somewhat recent (2 years) louisville transplants, we offer newcomers enthusiasm for the city along with fine recs for things to see and do. we are laid back, fairly busy, but personable and accessible.

the ringleader, zelda the great dane, is 9 1/2 and loves sleeping and getting rubbed. she will stay in her room until you want to meet her and get her take on local politics and the best places to sniff in the neighborhood.
