Molly Malones - Pleasant Ridge

If you do a quick search for a review of Molly Malones in Pleasant Ridge, you might find some grumpy people spreading negative reviews. Since the time many of these patrons reviewed this Irish pub they have gained new ownership and effective management. On any given day of the week you may hear live Irish music or a local band. On Tuesdays, it's trivia night - a great excuse to get out of the house and enjoy one Molly Malone's local beers or the always-delicious pint of Guiness. Concerning food, their menu is varied with a mix of pub favorites like fish and chips and burgers and a few unique takes on Irish cuisine. Overall the atmosphere is relaxed and the food is good. I've had a number of meals here (and a beer of two to go along with it) and they have not disappointed.

Mountain lion spotted, confirmed, then killed in Kentucky

A mountain lion was discovered and promptly killed in Bourbon County, Kentucky. This predator of deer and other wildlife was pushed further and further west by overhunting, but has recently made a comeback, increasing wildlife diversity. Almost no threat to humans from this big cat. In fact, they may actually improve life in the area by reducing the out of control deer population.
