Eat light today because this weekend is chock full of enough food and drink to keep you full until Memorial Day.
As Lexington Craft Beer Week comes to a close, the kickoff to summer begins with some oldies but goodies events as well as a few brand spankin’ new to-dos – all with the overarching theme of “Eat, Drink, Dance and Be Merry.”
Corral your family and friends because this weekend is going to be busy.
Brews, Boots and Beats
If you’ve been itching for a night of dancing and live music, read on.
KVC Kentucky and NextGen Aviation are hosting the first ever BREWS, BOOTS & BEATS event at the NextGen Aviation hangar at the Bluegrass Airport in an effort to raise funds to support KVC Kentucky’s admirable mission of providing behavioral health, substance abuse and child welfare services to families in need.
This event will feature a concert performance by local country music star Walker Montgomery and Nashville-bred country artist Dustin Collins. Southern comfort hors d’oeuvres, crisp West Sixth Brewing beer, refreshing cocktails and more will be served to guests.
Tickets are available here.
Nelly, Juvenile & Bone Thugs-N-Harmony
Break out your cargo pants, chain belts and jean jackets. The 90s are back in town.
Friday night will bring back the best blast-from-the-past moments as R&B music legends Nelly, Juvenile and Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony come together to bring Lexington a night it won’t forget.
Performing at Whitaker Bank Ball Park, the three rap icons will bring back the classic hits that made them who they are, creating new memories for music video superfans. Get your tickets here.
