Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

What an amazing Saturday here in Lexington for all the St. Patrick’s Day festivities! We were blessed with a beautiful 60 degree, sunny day for the Shamrock Shuffle, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and an afternoon full of food and festivities. It makes me so happy to see Lexington’s downtown booming!

I’m not a big parade person…if you’ve seen one float you’ve seen them all…but as you know, I love food and I love festivals.

The Cheapside Pavilion was lined with so many delicious treats. I wish I could have tried them all…upon arrival, the husband had par take in some Ellos tacos  and they did not disappoint! (You can visit their brick and mortar around the corner by Broadway and Maxwell.)

Under the pavilion,  vendor’s selling their St. Paddy’s day best. My friend Melissa scored this amazing headband (be jealous!).

Not sure what the lama’s bring to the St. Paddy’s day festivities…but heck, why not stop and say hi! I’m pretty sure this fella was saying “Hey baby!”

Next stop-The Jax for $2.99 green beer and the first patio session of the spring!

When the patios are open…we tend to frequent The Jax (which we did), followed by more patio sitting at the Henry Clay Public House, which meant we were walking distance from FUNNEL CAKES!!

Our “go-to” bar this winter has been The Chase Taproom and we decided to end this beautiful night there with more beers, patio sitting, and Goodfella’s Pizza (only the best pizza in Lexington!)

Hi-ho, hi-ho, it’s off to Chase we go.

What happens at The Chase…stays at the Chase (except for dumb “touch your nose” photos like this).

The funnest part about getting Goodfella’s “to-go”…trying to get the pizza boxes in your tiny sedan!

Hope everyone had a great weekend and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
