For most in Lexington, October means Keeneland. (And those who aren’t familiar with Keeneland, it’s our racetrack.) Betting on horses while day-drinking isn’t really something that appeals to me. I’ve had the childhood Keeneland experience: my dad placed a $2 bet for me and I won $16. And after that, I was pretty much over Keeneland.
That’s not to say those who love Keeneland have something wrong with them! It’s just not my cup of tea, and if you’ve found this blog, it’s not yours either.
This blog is for everyone who lives in Lexington—or would love to visit Lexington—but isn’t into the whole horses and bourbon thing. (Full disclosure: I love bourbon; I just know there’s more to the Bluegrass Region than that!)
Welcome to unLEXpected!
For the rest of you not in horse country, October probably just means Halloween has begun! So this month I’m focusing unLEXpected on “Spooky Lexington.”
And what better way to kick off the month by highlighting one of my favorite places in Lexington: the Lexington Cemetery.
