If you enjoy the artsy and fun vibe in the HIghlands, get ready for something new and sparkly. Roc, 1327 Bardstown Rd, is going to be hosting disco brunches, and the first one is this Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Every month will have a theme, and this one features the 80’s with a guitarist, percussionist and a DJ. You can come dressed as you like or join the staff in your 80’s garb. $50 per person includes one brunch item, one dessert, two drinks and a whole lot of dancin’; reservations are requested and can be made by calling 502-459-7878.
“I had a restaurant in new york, and we threw lots of parties,” said owner Rocco Cadalini. “By noon, there will be heavy duty music. The idea is that by the time you leave, you’ll feel like you were at a disco all night.”
