I just learned this: The first commercial vineyard in the US was founded near LEX in 1799. It has been “recreated” and is open for visits.

Giving this a bump.

Hyatt Regency seems to have gone up in price. Not sure if it is filling or what. A great use of 8000 Hyatt points. Once again, if i book for you, you inherit my status, which would get you a couple breakfasts daily. I called and they have expanded the limited buffet of last time (still not back to the classic buffet) or you can get table service. Let me know.

Castle and Key, a very popular distillery, has reopened for tours. Might be worth following their website if you are interested. I am sure they will book up.

“Experiences Are Back!

After more than a year long hiatus, we’re excited to reintroduce our hosted experiences! Join us for The Distillery Experience starting Thursday, July 22nd. Guests will learn about our history, distillation process, and property as they’re guided through the Castle, Sunken Garden, and other portions before ending with a tasting of their choice from Counter 17. The Distillery Experience is $20 per person and all guests must be 21+. Space is limited, so book your experience today! We hope to announce additional hosted experiences in the future.”

Just checked Merrick Inn and reserved a table for 6 at 6:30pm on the outdoor patio for Friday night. Anything over 6 people was at 9:15 pm or 5:15 pm. Suggest someone else make a reservation just in case we can't sweet talk the folks at the restaurant to allow us a large table or two tables next to each other.

I would like to give everyone a heads-up about a possible problem.

I am undergoing some medical issues and there is some chance I will have to cancel coming to LEX.

I won’t know for some weeks yet. Thanks.

For reasons I cannot share at this time, I will have to back out of this event. This is a good thing for me. Hope to make it next year.

Keeneland sent an email announcing that the stands will be fully open this year.

“The Keeneland Fall Meet is just around the corner! Mark your calendar for Monday, August 16 at 9 a.m. EST when individual tickets go on sale. Keeneland is thrilled to welcome fans back at full capacity.”
