The past couple of months at Wiser Strategies we have been very busy with video work, creating new collateral materials, enhancing digital marketing, as well as assisting with event planning for our clients.
Although we have been busy with client work, we still make it a point to get out in our Lexington community and take in the beautiful Bluegrass surrounding us. We thought it would be nice to share with those around us a taste of what we have been up to.
Louie’s Wine and Dive
Conveniently located directly across from our office in Chevy Chase, this wine bar has
been a favorite for us. It has turned out to be a great place to have lunch meetings; happy hour meetings and work neighbor get togethers. Shockingly enough, Louie’s is a chain, but you wouldn’t think that by stepping in the Lexington location. The couple that started Louie’s Wine and Dive wanted to give this franchised restaurant a Lexington feel, and they have achieved that. Some of our favorites have included the squeaky cheese, brussels sprouts, and pastas. In the recent months that Louie’s has been open, Wiser Strategies has been a frequent flyer. Louie’s Wine Dive.
We even found a way to pull one of their employees for an upcoming video (stay tuned for that video).
Our president Nancy Wiser had the rare opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes tour of UK’s basketball arena and locker room. Needless to say, UK’s team is living a life of luxury. The 7,000 square foot space was updated after the 2012 championship for $3.1 million. Nancy also got the chance to shoot some baskets of her own, right from the free throw line. Those basketball players make it look easy.
Rock House Brewery
Rock House might be small, but it sure is mighty. Located in the old Lexington Quarry, the brewery has both great beer and an abundance of board games. With creative names like Four String Brass Knuckle, David Stout Attorney at Law, Gravel Pit Porter and Riot Act, there is something on their tap list for any craft brew aficionado. Rock House Brewing
This deli and bakery located on the KY bourbon trail is much loved by locals as well as tourists. If you’re up for a nice drive through beautiful horse country, then Wallace Station is the place for a quick break for some great sandwiches, soups, and treats. Just a take a scenic drive down Old Frankfort Pike and Wallace Station will be nestled in between large-scale thoroughbred farms. Once inside you will have an array of sandwiches, soups, burgers, bakery treats, and even breakfast. Once you’ve made your entrée selection, be sure to pick up a tasty treat of either a delicious country ham scone or a large chocolate chip cookie (just some of our favorites). Wallace Station.
Located in the new distillery district, Good Fellas offers an industrial design with industrially sized pizzas. Around Lexington, GoodFellas used to be known as the place to get pizza after a night out on the town, but not anymore. This newly designed restaurant offers artisan pizza and plenty of local brews to wash them down. The new location also offers a loft available for private parties. Goodfellas.
All in all, when the weather warms up in Lexington, so do the activities and adventures. In our opinion, Lexington in the summertime is the greatest place to be. Whether you enjoy a cold beer or glass of wine on a patio or the intensity of a packed racetrack, the community of Lexington has what you need.
