GASTHAUS: got 'kraut?

Louisville's ONLY German Restaurant

Ms Wheelchair Kentucky visits the Gasthaus

On Saturday we had the pleasure of serving Jaime Blanton, Ms Wheelchair Kentucky. Jaime hopes to empower people with disabilities to contribute to their communities by raising awareness about the issues facing those with mobility challenges, namely in the areas of educational quality, employment opportunities and housing equity. She believes the key to creating truly inclusive environments foster positive relationships with one another, and work together to embrace diversity and ability.


Jamie is no stranger to advocating on behalf of people with disabilities. Diagnosed with cerebral palsy at age 1, Jamie has never let her disability stop her from accomplishing great things. She is a wife, mother and master’s student at the University of Louisville.

Join her on April 11, 2008 for a The Bluegrass Bash, a dinner reception, silent auction and raffle that will showcase the Unique Products, Services & Entertainment of the Commonwealth. The Gasthaus has donated a gift certificate. The event will be held at:

The Galleria Room Collins Auto Group 4220 Bardstown Road Louisville, KY 40218

The event is open to the public and donations are accepted at the door. RSVP is encouraged, call Jaime at 502-759-5665 or email

She will represent Kentucky in the Ms Wheelchair America 2009 Contest in July 21-27 in Bethesda, Maryland.

The Gasthaus wishes her good luck.

Lili’s first visit to the restaurant

Simone came by tonight to show lil’ Lili to the staff. Fortunately, we were not busy, because as soon as they arrived Lili was the center of attention. Everyone wanted to see her, everyone wanted to hold her. Her big brother Jake was so proud to show her off to the kitchen staff. Chefs JP and Jason photographed the little ones with their phone cameras.031408meetingthegasthausteam002.jpg 031908meetingthegasthausteam.jpgOK, guys back to work!
