10 under $5 – What to do this Week in Louisville (3/19)

MONDAY

Taco and Movie Monday: ‘Rush Hour’ Triple Feature!
Old Louisville Brewery
No cover  |  5-10 p.m.
Believe it or not, the first couple of “Rush Hour” movies were pretty good. The pointless third-installment and shitty, network TV series may have made you forget, but the action and stunts are worth revisiting. And since this movie night is at a brewery, by the time you reach the third movie, you’ll be buzzed enough to enjoy it. On top of that, the Sabor Latino food truck will provide pork, beef and chicken tacos, empanadas and quesadillas (one with a beer for $6, or three tacos for $6). And if you can’t make it to this movie night, check out LEO’s Guide to Louisville Movie Nights for other options.
