Emmie's 20 Things

Several weeks ago, the HerKentucky contributors each listed their favorite things about Kentucky. I am the turtle in the group, but figure this post is better late than never! There are so many things I love.

Here they are, in no particular order:

  1. Awesome people
  2. Lexington Athletic Club
  3. The pedestrian-friendly Bardstown Road in Louisville
  4. Missy's pies: Served at Lexington-based Ramsey's (not the Louisville Ramsi's) and also available out of their small Ashland Ave. store, these pies are amazing and there are dozens of flavors
  5. Columbia Steakhouse Nighthawk: if you like steak, you must try this
  6. Keeneland: Spring meet is during my birthday and fall meet is during my favorite time of the year
  7. Woodland Art Fair in Lexington
  8. Southern Lights at the Kentucky Horse Park
  9. Graeters ice cream: yes, they're Cincinnati based, but they're coming back to Lexington soon. Raspberry Chocolate Chip is ridiculous
  10. Bluegrass Tavern: nothing fancy about this bar, but it's near Cheapside and I've had great memories there
  11. US60: The drive from Versailles Road to I-64. Gorgeous horse farms lining the drive.
  12. Coffee Times: Lexington coffee house I've gone to for over 12 years
  13. Bourbon
  14. Kentucky basketball
  15. Brunch at Winchell's
  16. The Legacy Trail
  17. Lexington Farmers Market on Saturdays when it's outside
  18. Chrisman Mill Winery - where I got married
  19. Lexington Corn Maze at Kelley Farms
  20. (and 21.) Ramsey's (Lexington) and Ramsi's (Louisville).
