Moontower Music Festival 2016

IMG_9603

Moontower is an all-day music festival that is all about being local and being family and dog friendly. It shouldn’t come as a surprise or shock to anyone that I’m all about anything local. I seriously eat, live, and breathe all things Lexington, Kentucky. It’s my passion. I’m NOT a review blogger. I share what I love. This is literally how I live my life and how I choose to fill my time. I love sharing things about my city, because there are so many people out there (including people living in Lexington) that don’t have any clue about our amazing culinary scene, the variety of events from week to week, locally-owned and farm-to-table restaurants, local businesses, anything local, or what is going on, on a daily basis. So, I love being able to reach people and give people recommendations and inspire them to step out of their comfort zones.

Doors opened at 11am and the festival lasted until the last band was finished performing around 11pm. It featured some of the best local, regional, and national acts. There were all types of music there; country, blues, alternative,

My Kentucky Tee | August’s Tee of the Month

ale8-single

I’ve been a customer of My Kentucky Tee for a little over a year, and I absolutely love seeing what shirt they come up with from month to month. I used to never ever wear t-shirts before.  Like ever. No joke. I doubt I even owned any really before last year. After becoming a customer, I was hooked and I proudly wear my t-shirts representing our great state of Kentucky.

My Kentucky Tee is a subscription based service that costs $15 each month. Each month is a Kentucky inspired tee, and it will be mailed to you the first week of each month.The tees are unisex, so both men and women can wear them. When you become a subscriber, you receive the 1792 introductory tee, and the current tee of that month.

CRAVE Lexington 2016 | Food and Music Festival

cravefliers

Crave Lexington is Lexington’s signature food event that celebrates locally-crafted fare from 55+ food vendors and 10 bands. There is also a classic car show as well. This is the fourth year that this event has been held, and this is the second year that I have been. The event this year was on August 13 and 14, and it was held at Masterson Station Fairgrounds. Masterson Station Park is one of the largest parks in Lexington at 660 acres.

A couple of days before Crave, I was looking at the weather and it was supposed to rain all day and night on both days of the event, August 13 and 14. I was incredibly bummed because I had been looking forward to it all year. It’s a rain or shine event, but the weather was forecasting heavy rain and thunderstorms with lightning. Luckily, there weren’t any storms, but it was super hot and there was sunshine pretty much the entire day for both days.

Admission is $6, but then you have to either a) buy a package that includes food and drink tickets weeks beforehand (I bought my package two weeks early) or b) purchase an amount of tickets that you need at the ticket booths on the day of the evens. For me, I purchased the package that included two admissions and $47 CRAVE

Lexington Restaurant Week 2016


lexingtonrestaurantweek2016

Lexington Restaurant is such an exciting week. It was from July 21st to July 30th. There were 44 of the best locally-owned, independent restaurants participating in this event (no chain restaurants!). For Lexington Restaurant Week, there was a special menu that you could order off of.  Some restaurants were two can dine for $26, and usually it included two or three courses. For example, for that deal, you shared an appetizer, you each got an entree, and you got to share a dessert. However, each restaurant, offered different things, so some may have only offered two courses.

The other restaurants were $26 per person, and those were also multi-courses as well. For example, for that deal, you each got an appetizer, you each got an entree, and you each a dessert. Lexington Restaurant Week is another good event to try out restaurants that you may or may not have heard of before. It’s also a good chance to especially try out the fancier, more costly restaurants to see if you would like them or not. The $26 per person is a steal, because at some of the restaurants, an entree alone is $26 or more.

Like I mentioned with Lexington Burger Week, which was a little over a week before Lexington Restaurant Week, there are

Lexington Burger Week 2016

I know this post is a little bit long overdue, but I just could not, not mention it. Lexington Burger Week is an exciting week in Lexington that takes place in July. This was it’s second year, and it didn’t disappoint! Last year, 21,000 burgers were sold. Last year, I ate only one, but this year, I ate four, even though I was planning to do seven or eight. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out that way.

This year, there were 36+ participating restaurants, and these burgers are completely different than the ones they had last year. Plus, there were different restaurants participating as well. Each burger was $5 and each burger is one-of-a kind, meaning it is not on the regular menu. So, this event is one that shouldn’t be missed! Hopefully, if you are reading this, you didn’t miss it. And if you did, then there’s always next year!

There was so many mouthwatering choices that it would be impossible to try them all in one week! Unfortunately,
