A Day at the Races
We spent the afternoon at Keeneland, the thoroughbred race track in Lexington, KY. We had never seen thoroughbred racing before, so when in Rome . . .
It had rained all night and was still at it when we arrived at the track, so it was going to be a muddy day. I had no idea that tailgating was part of the deal, but it is, rain or shine. I have also never seen an RV like the one below, but I've seen two of them in Lexington in the last 12 hours. Perhaps it pulls a horse trailer?
The Listening Room
Last night we caught the early (of course) show at the Listening Room Cafe, where you can hear singer/songwriters play their songs and share their career experiences. It's interesting to hear their perspectives on the music industry, and really fun to hear them perform their own songs. They often shared the backstory or inspiration for their songs and who they may have collaborated with. It adds a different dimension to hearing live music. I only recorded two of the three we heard, but from left to right below you have Jason Duke, Lena Stone, and Joseph Patton.
Best Restaurant Ever!
As you know, Doug is always on the hunt for the ultimate hot dog, and and it's a rare day when either of us would turn down a donut.
Well . . . wait for it . . . we found The Donut + Dog in Nashville . . . yes we did!
AND both the dogs and donuts are deeeeelicious. Even if you don't like donuts, or hot dogs, stop for a cup from their impressive coffee and tea offerings, and enjoy!
We made friends with Cara and Nick, pictured below, who were delightful hosts. Whoever hired them is a genius :-). (Special shout-out to Cara who suggested parking for free at the stadium when visiting downtown.) You will find us here next time we're in Nashville.
Ann, Doug, Moose, Darla, Sunny, and with gratitude, Winnie and Chinny.
