Kentucky Favorites: The Night Market

Night Market in Lexington, Kentucky
Night Market is a fun local event that we have here in downtown Lexington that features all sorts of vendors – food, craft beer, hand made items, coffee, etc. There’s live music and lots to look at! We went several weekends back and I’d love to go again. I spotted a few vintage dresses and some beautiful handmade jewelery that I wish I had picked up. And the food – ohhh the food! These are the kinds of things that make me sad to see our Kentucky summer evenings slipping away!

Kentucky Favorites: National Provisions Beer Hall

>Kentucky Favorites: National Provisions Beer Hall
We have so many favorite hang out spots in Lexington now that it’s hard to believe I’m adding another one to list but with the way this city is blowing up I suppose I better get used it! Friday night we went down to National Provisions to check out their new Beer Hall and hang out with a few friends. It was the perfect end to a long week and a relaxing beginning to our weekend. Just look at this place – the atmosphere is fantastic. We didn’t eat but I saw several wonderful looking dishes make their way to other customers, so I’m really looking forward to going back to grab lunch or brunch here soon! Apparently there is also another side of the establishment that is a boulangerie. I realized after we left that I have seen a ton of gorgeous photos of the Boulangerie and have heard lots of good things about their delicious pastries! Oh Lexington, you’re making it extremely difficult to just stay home and be content with cooking my own food!

Mr. Beery’s

Mr. Beery’s on our summer vacation to Sarasota in 2012 and we were excited to visit again during our trip this past July! I think it’s officially a summer tradition to stop in and have a beer there! A lot had changed since our last visit. We walked in and hardly knew if we were in the same place. A wall was knocked down to open up the space a bit and the overall vibe is much more modern now. We enjoyed ourselves last time, but this time around we felt like this was a place we’d hang out at a lot if we lived in the area.
I can’t wait to stop back in during our next visit to Sarasota. There’s something pretty great about hanging out at the beach all day and then going out for a beer in the evening. Ahh, the life. Oh and don’t mind my crazy Florida hair in the photo above. Humidity and I – we are wonderful friends.

Wine Tasting With The Bachelorette

You guys! One of my best friends, Brittany, is getting married today – it’s past midnight so it’s today! I’m so excited to be part of her big day and can’t wait to watch her walk down the aisle. Last weekend all of the bridesmaids went with her to do a wine tasting at Let’s all pause a moment to notice how ridiculously tall I appear to be. Bunch of shorties! ;] Looking forward to a beautiful day today and a lovely wedding – Happy Wedding Day, Brittany and CJ!!!
