    Restaurant Spotlight: Cru Food and Wine Bar at The Summit at Fritz Farm

    One of my favorite things about the weekend is BRUNCH!

    Since my husband and I are members of the Wine Club at CRU Food & Wine Bar, we decided to go for brunch on Sunday afternoon (By the way, it’s FREE to join!). We had received a buy one get one free coupon for brunch for February 10, so we thought, why not go? Previously, we had only been there for dinner (and it ranked up there being one of the best meals we’ve ever had!), but we had never been for brunch. We are always wanting to try some of our favorite restaurants in Lexington’s brunch offerings, because you just can’t say no to brunch!

    Flavor Pairing 101 With Jeptha Creed Distillery and Butchertown Grocery

    Various cocktail tools that a bartender uses

    This post is in collaboration with Jeptha Creed. All of these opinions are entirely my own. Thank you for supporting brands and businesses that support Fabulous in Fayette!

    Last weekend, I was invited out to Jeptha Creed again to attend one of their events. This event was special, because we got to preview the event and try it out, before it would be offered to the public the following week. Every time I’ve attended one of Jeptha Creed’s events, I’ve had a blast. I’ve attended everything from Learning the Art of a Cocktail to The Jeptha Creed Games (which was a part of the Kentucky Bourbon Affair) to the “Ground to Glass” Cocktail Class.

    Tickets for this event is available for sale right now, but keep reading, and I’ll share all the details about what went on and how to buy tickets if you are interested!

    Where to Eat in Lexington, Kentucky for Valentine’s Day

    It’s almost that time of year – Valentine’s Day aka the day of love! Lexington has so many amazing restaurants throughout the city, so why not eat some delicious, yummy food and at the same time support a local business?!?

    The other day, I made a list of “Thing to Do in Lexington, Kentucky for Valentine’s Day,” which included about 40 events that you could take part in, whether you are single, married, dating, or have kids.

    This particular list here is all about the food! I wanted to give y’all some ideas on where to celebrate for dinner. I’ve included a description about each restaurant, as well as their regular menu and/or special Valentine’s Day menu.

    As always, remember that Valentine’s Day is a busy time (only seven days until the big day!), so be sure to make reservations ahead of time! Something also important to remember is that some restaurants will have their regular menus available, while others will have a special prix fixe available for that day only. Lastly, some restaurants may be even running their special menus throughout the weekend!

    Local Spotlight: Brunch at Corto Lima

    Chips with three types of salsa from Corto Lima

    Over the weekend, a few of us local Kentucky bloggers got together for a Winter White Brunch at Corto Lima in Lexington, Kentucky. If you’ve never been, you should check out the Local Spotlight that I did on Corto Lima back in October of 2018. In my previous post about Corto Lima, I featured several of my favorite dinner dishes.

    We got to sample many things that they have featured on their menu, and we most certainly didn’t leave hungry! It truly is an amazing restaurant! I had been there for dinner, but never for brunch and it didn’t disappoint!
