Windy Corner Market – Lexington Kentucky

On Saturday night, the staff of Everything Kentucky ventured out in to the country….Horse Country to visit a cute, quaint little restaurant called the Windy Corner. This little country store and restaurant certainly lived up to its reputation. We’ve only ever heard good things about this place and it certainly didn’t disappoint.

When you walk in this place, country living is the immediate feel. From Kentucky Pride goodies for sale all around to the hustle and bustle of the filled tables of people eating good food and enjoying a wonderful Saturday evening, this place has a little bit of everything.

This little joint offers a wonderful menu and their dinner specials are very unique. I had the Shrimp and Grits and it was to die for. Seriously, some of the best shrimp and grits I have ever had and my family knows grits, honey!

If you have out of town guests that have never been to Lexington, I would highly recommend this for a great little lunch spot. I think this is the type of place that anyone would enjoy!

Pros: great food, helpful staff, great desserts (the cheesecake did NOT disappoint). The wait to get our food wasn’t bad and they were packed. I really, really like this place!
 

Cons: The only thing that I didn’t like is you walk up and order. I’ve never been a fan of ordering and then sitting down. The line was huge and you always have this one annoying person that has stood in line for 20 minutes, finally makes it to the cash register to order and STILL has no clue what they want. COME ON! This is just my preference and not a deal breaker by any means!

Definitely want t to try their breakfast, it looks really good! We will for sure be back!!

All in all, I give it 7 out of 10 bourbons! For more information check out the Windy Corner Website and Facebook Page

Kentucky Everything

Asbury Trails in Wilmore, Kentucky, is open to the public for hiking. The trailhead is at a parking lot on the way to Asbury University’s Challenge Course. I didn’t know there were trails here until recently, and I think it’s one of the best places to go in the area for a short hike. The area is known as The Palisades Farm.

The first trail I hiked was the Hillside Trail. It’s name describes the hike. You head uphill through woods, across a ravine, and end up in a meadow. You can see the valley below while hiking this trail. You can hike back down the 1/2 mile trail or take the gravel service road back to the parking lot.

The trail is a great hike. The area this time of year was beautiful!

At the ravine, you’ll cross over and head uphill to a meadow area.

Copper & Kings Brandy

A great review of the tour through Copper & Kings, American Brandy Company in Louisville, Kentucky. Copper & Kings Barrel Aging

Winters in Kentucky

Well, it turns out that Bourbon isn’t the only thing that’s going on in Louisville as far as locally produced spirits go.  There is a resurgence of all varieties of alcohol, and Copper & Kings is cornering the market here for Brandy and Absinthe.  Sourcing a local coppersmith, the owners ordered a set of copper stills and started experimenting with the art of brandy making.
