Mercury Ballroom Readers' Choice Shelby County Restaurant Claudia Sanders Dinner House 3202 Shelbyville Road, Shelbyville You can make a day out of a trip to Claudia Sanders. It's close to downtown Shelbyville, which is home to loads of cute shops, and is only a 10-minute drive to the Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass in Simpsonville. Opt for the scenic route down Shelbyville Road instead of the highway. Colonel Harland Sanders and his wife Claudia opened the restaurant more than 40 years ago in a house that was once Kentucky Fried Chicken's headquarters. (In a 2013 KET segment, Thomas Settle, who took over Claudia Sanders with his wife Cherry, recalled a story about Colonel Sanders: "He always carried a gold spoon in his pocket. He'd pull his gold spoon out and taste every vegetable. He wanted to make sure they were right.") The chicken tenders you'd get at KFC are just an appetizer at Claudia Sanders. The menu offers New York strip steak, homemade baked lasagna and more. The sugar- cured ham 'n' biscuits comes with mashed potatoes, milk gravy, baked apples and — why not? — a piece of fried chicken. — Megan Brewer RC Place to Learn a New Skill Metro Arts Center 8360 Dixie Hwy. Nearly every surface inside the Metro Arts Center is patinaed with something: rainbow splatters of paint stain tabletops alongside remnants of melted wax; dust from dried clay coats surfaces next to works ready for the kiln; scraps of unfinished projects fill bins discolored from use; murals by teenagers in the painting courses cover the walls. No need to fear getting your hands dirty. When we were kids, my brother would come home one night a week from the Metro Arts Center with various "wounds": latex and fake blood, courtesy of the special-effects makeup class. My husband and I carved wax and spun melted sterling silver in a centrifuge to create our wedding rings. You may need to take a trek to earn your newfound painting or pottery techniques. The Metro Arts Center is on Dixie Highway between I-264 and I-265. (Look for the asymmetrical roof.) It has been offering seasonal classes since moving there in the late 1970s. Each course lasts about six to eight weeks in three-hour sessions, encompassing everything from silversmithing to screen-printing to guitar lessons. Most classes are a steal at about $100. Marty Edlin, who has been supervising the Metro Arts Center since 2000, says it is a place that was designed to teach people art — not a place to make a profit. "It kind of relaxes you," he says. "I know it sounds maybe a little metaphysical, but it seems to me that all of the things that have been created here create a mood or just a feeling in the air." — JK CC
