The only bourbon history I care to know about is the last 8-16 years or so.

If it isn't UK blue or a chain restaurant, Lexingtonians don't care about it.

Not just urban explorers. Hobos and drug users too!

Yeah they sure love their chain restaurants. We've got a bunch of great local restaurants* too, though. I'm one of those Lexington residents that can't even imagine living away from downtown, so my perspective is different than a lot of people here.

* - Not counting Joe Bologna's. That place blows.

No shiat. Though I'm in the blue crowd, if I see one more damned Applebee's open up, I'm going to lose my damn mind. The worst part is, there are a lot of great local places that people from out of town never try because they just got to get to the new Red Lobster that opened up.

Whenever the wife is in town she hits Columbia's. meh in my opinion, but I have learned not to comment.

Good food can be found in Lexington: Azur, Jonathan, a la lucie are good for the upscale, but Lexington really gets good in joints like Ramsey's, Oasis, Puccini's, Billy's and Bombay Brazier and Grill.

The Pepper Distillery is where we used to throw raves when the old icehouse was booked.

Anyone who considers Applebee's to be fine cuisine can just keep going there and leave the high-quality, locally-owned "mom and pop" type restaurants to those of us who appreciate them.

I lived in Lexington out of college for a year in 2008, I was so excited to live in a decent downtown with many bars but the only people i knew were my coworkers who were only interested in going to happy hour at applebee type chains out in the suburbs. It drove me crazy
