We are get new breweries often in Lexington so the introduction of a new one on National went past me quickly. What a miss on my part! Ok, so only by 90 days or so but still! Continue reading “Mirror Twin”
And beer out of a growler is, for some reason, so much better. Maybe it’s the drought versus the canned/bottled flavors. It’s just tastier. Continue reading “I’ll admit it, up front: I like beer”
West Sixth Brewing was one of the first microbreweries Lexingtonians got to enjoy. It sparked a revolution that has resulted in seemingly a new brewery opening every few months. Continue reading “West Sixth”
When I lived over in Kenwick, I was introduced to the wonderful delivery of fresh farm eggs, straight to my door. Once every two weeks, like magic, beautiful brown eggs appeared on my porch, waiting patiently to be turned into scrambled eggs, eggs in a basket, cookies, or to help me put a beautiful sheen on top of challah. I was super bummed Continue reading “The Poore Farm”
Literally the best park in Lexington. Continue reading “Elizabeth Street Park”
After visiting Burley Park, my search for the perfect park in Lexington continues.
At the corner of Euclid and High Street (or is it Tates Creek Road at that point?…) on Sundays from 10-2 is the Chevy Chase Farmer’s Market. These neighborhood markets are popping up everywhere making locally grown produce within reach for most people of Lexington at least one day a week. Continue reading “Chevy Chase Farmer’s Market”
Behind Victory Christian Church at the corner of Owsley and Cramer is a community garden that has been lovingly tended by volunteers from the neighborhood for a few years. Free veggies are offered to the community but to not feel guilty, pitch in with a little weeding and watering. Sign up here. Continue reading “Community Garden on Owsley and Cramer”
Out Harrodsburg Road, right outside of the circle is a shopping center that contains many great restaurants and retail shops. Located on Fieldstone Way in the strip on the left is the Sahara International Market Traditional Butcher Shop. Continue reading “Sahara International Market”
What a lovely find!
Follow the twisting streets of the Belleau Woods neighborhood to be introduced to an 18-acre swath of greenspace and play areas. Belleau Woods Park has all of the necessities of a great space for Lexingtonians to utilize but the park was nearly empty when we got there. Granted we were here on a damp day where storms constantly threatened but it’s in the middle of a large neighborhood! Continue reading “Belleau Woods Park”
On the south side of the Chevy Chase neighborhood is a small collection of shops along Romany Road between Cooper and Providence. The largest store is Kroger’s, one of the few remaining neighborhood sized stores in Lexington. The neighborhood loves it for the ease of access. Continue reading “Romany Corridor”
Most neighborhoods have small shopping centers with grocery, dining, and a little shopping. Chinoe Center is no different but has a wider variety of food options than most. Continue reading “What’s in Chinoe Center?”
Art can be found all over Lexington. Sadly, it can be missed if it’s not where we expect it.
On the other side of the building from Pierce’s Prof X and Magneto work-in-progress is this mural featuring the artist’s reinterpretation of some famous pieces of sculpture. This one needs to be seen with your own eyes.
Street parking is available so get down to North Lime and 6th for this mural.
