For almost a decade, Sara Havens educated, entertained and befriended readers of LEO Weekly in her column “The Bar Belle.” Havens wandered into and stumbled out of bars, eating, drinking, socializing and then sharing the wisdom she gleaned with readers. “The Bar Belle Volume 1,” a collection of the columns from 2006–2010 was published in 2011, and now Volume 2 has arrived, wherein The Bar Belle gets a dog, falls in love, falls out of love, recovers from hangovers and chronicles the ups and downs of Louisville’s bar scene. “The Bar Belle” Volumes 1 and 2 are as much bildungsroman as they are bar guide, equal parts inappropriate laugh-out-loud humor, intimate glimpses into the Bar Belle’s life and insider’s guide to drinking in the the ‘Ville.
