Boulevard‘s favorite shrimp and grits appetizer at Jack Fry’s (“The best night in town”) promises all this: sautéed shrimp, grits, red eye gravy, cremini mushrooms, tomatoes, and country ham. $13. (All the menus.)
In the Derby Day 1976 issue of The Courier-Journal, Sun Television and Appliances at 725 E. Broadway advertised a Magnavox TV for a sky-high $499.76. (Free chicken and Coke were part of the bait, apparently.)
It looks even worse in 2016 dollars: $2,083, according to our friends at the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Meanwhile, today over at Best Buy on Shelbyville Road, the top-selling smart TV, a 40″ Insignia, is only $270. (But it’s bring-your-own-food-and-drink.)
And Sun Television and Appliances? RIP.
A small Blue Dog Bakery red eye this morning: $3.18. Tip: 82 cents.

In most cases, companies report details about their five highest-paid executives. Under certain circumstances, however, they’ll disclose additional names.
