Your User-Friendly Lexington StayCation Manual

Staycation anyone? Long gone are the days when Lexington was a ghost town from the time the college kids left in May til the day they returned in August. These days, there’s so much going on every night of the week that it can be a challenge just to narrow it down. There’s live music series, films, fairs, fests, and fun runs. There’s funnelcakes. There’s tomato festivals and block parties. Every neighborhood has something unique to offer, from the annual Big Band/Jazz series at Moondance and Ecton Park, to concerts at Phoenix Park, to movies at the Fountain. Take the plunge. Use this Guide all summer long until it’s in tatters, then stay tuned to aceweekly.com and our Facebook page for all the latest updates. And don’t forget to bring your towel. Here’s our selective guide of the coolest summer events:

It is a belief we have, as strong as any religion, that home can be preserved and life made everlasting if only we stay put. — Denise Giardina

SUMMER MUSIC SERIES

Love local music, but just can’t stay up til the bands start at the local bars? Because you have a j.o.b.? Or a k.i.d.? Relax. There’s live music in Lexington nearly every night of the week this Summer. And it’s free. Plus, you can take the kids. And the dogs. And you can still be home by 9, in bed by 10, and up in time for work the next day! Oh it’s more magical than it sounds.

BY KIM THOMAS

It wouldn’t be Summer in Lexington without SummerFest. The Lexington Shakespeare Festival began over 30 years ago as Shakespeare in the Park at Woodland Park. In 2007, under a new board of directors and staff, SummerFest was born — one of the region’s oldest continually operating Summer Theatre experiences, relocating first to the Arboretum, and later to Moondance, in Beaumont, where there was a permanent stage in place. For the last 10 years I have tried to coax pals into seeing a SummerFest play at the Arboretum or Moondance Amphitheatre, and most of the creative regrets usually end with, ‘haven’t wanted to go since they moved it from Woodland Park!’” This summer, it’s time for a homecoming. Let the casts of As You Like It and Jesus Christ Superstar do all the work, while you find ample street parking, bring a blanket, basket of noshes, and a box of wine, and voila — you’ve got it made, literally, in the shade! Sit under the tall trees at Lexington’s favorite city park, Woodland Park, located where Clay meets Woodland meets High Street, nestled ‘tween all the busy and cool parts of campus and downtown. Superstar Stage Manager Natalie Cummins is happy to see the show back in its old neighborhood. “My first experience with the old Lexington Shakespeare Festival was in 2004, and by then the shows were staged in the Arboretum. I’d always wished that I could have worked at Woodland Park, so on a personal level I’m thrilled that SummerFest is returning to the old roots. I also believe that the atmosphere of that area really lends itself to outdoor theater, and I think the community is very happy with the return.” before finishing back at Spindletop. Saturday, June 18: W6K West Sixth and Broke Spoke Sunset Run, 7:30 pm Begins and ends at Coolavin Park, taking runners through downtown Lexington and a portion of the Legacy Trail. All proceeds go to the Broke Spoke Community Bike Shop. This will be a timed, out and back 6K course. When runners are finished, they can head over to West Sixth for food from Smithtown Seafood and Red State Barbeque, as well as commemorative pint glasses. Friday, June 24: Sunset Tiki 5K, 7 pm, Coldstream Park Monday, July 4: Bluegrass 10K, 7:30 am, downtown

The 10K winds through the heart of Downtown Lexington. Crank & Wheelchair Divisions at 7:25 am, the 10K at 7:30 am, and a one mile Fun Run at 8:15 am. Sunday, July 24: BreyerFest 5K & 1 Mile, 8 am, Kentucky Horse Park Saturday, Aug 13: A Midsummer Night’s Run, 8 am, downtown Choose from the 5K, 1 Mile, or Fastest Kid in Town, or any combination of the three. Saturday, Aug 20: Kentucky Blood Run 5K, 6:30 pm, Kentucky Blood Center at Beaumont Center Circle

Eat June: Beer, bourbon and burgers to shine NEWS

On June 11, the Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill hosts another Fresh Food Adventure: “Garden and Grain” featuring Woodford Reserve and Cedar Creek Farm. Sample the flavors of the simple but powerful grain, locally-raised meats, and the summer garden bounty.

BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse, a Chicagostyle pizza restaurant, is scheduled to go up in the Fayette Mall parking lot.

Goodfellas Pizzeria is opening its third Lexington location in the Distillery District, on 1224 Manchester St. The new location will be a 4,500-square-foot space that will include a “speakeasy,” similar to the Cincinnati locations. The Distillery District is living up to its name: the James E. Pepper Distilling will return to the Pepper Distillery running along the Town Branch at 1228 Manchester St, for the first time in more than 50 years.

Oak Springs Grill opened at the Fayette Mall in May, at the location which was formerly Abuelo’s. The restaurant specializes in comfort food.

Chef Ouita Michel has announced plans to open a restaurant in downtown Lexington in the soon-to-be-renovated old Courthouse on Cheapside Square. (She will also add another establishment at the Summit at Fritz Farm, currently in development.) Panchito’s Ice Cream has opened a second Lexington location at 481 West New Circle Road. Both Lexington stores (the original is at 1388 Alexandria Drive) serve 30 flavors of traditional ice cream every day from noon - 10 pm.

EVENTS

On June 1 from noon - 2 pm, the Kentucky Proud Store at Boone Creek Creamery on

Palumbo will celebrate “the uncommon wealth” with an open house.

The Carnegie Center hosts Lunch with a Legend: Wendell Berry, on Saturday, June 4 at 1 pm at Gratz Park. The lunch will include a farm-to-table meal and Alltech’s Bluegrass Sundown (a coffee and vanilla infused bourbon liqueur).

On June 4 at 6 pm, Maker’s Mark Distillery hosts Bourbon and Ballet. The four-course dinner menu pairs with four unique performances by the Kentucky Ballet Theatre. Food Truck Friday is back at 100 Midland Avenue on June 10, from 11 am - 2 pm. Kentucky Cork, Tap & Barrel is at the Cheapside Pavilion on June 10 at 5 pm. The monthly event celebrates Kentucky-made wine, beer, and bourbon, and also includes live music, concessions, and arts & crafts vendors.

The Seventh Annual Beer Cheese Festival is in downtown Winchester (on Main Street) on June 11 from 10 am – 5 pm.

Chew Brunch: Sangria with Lockbox’s Chef Jonathan Searle on June 12 at 11 am at the UK Art Museum. The 2-course meal will be paired with a Sangria bar (with all the fixings) and will be made using locally sourced products.

Bob’s Burgers style Cook-Off at 1 pm at Morris Book Shop on June 12.

Bluegrass Calcotadas or ....

How to BBQ with Ale 8 One The annual Calcotadas in Spain are Catalonian spring festivals celebrating the harvest of their overwintered twice-planted beloved calcotes.

Smitten by the green garlic at the Farmer’s Market and their crazy uncanny resemblance to Kentucky green onions, I embraced the notion of a Spanish Calcotada and paired baby green garlic with local quail for a Bluegrass take on a Catalonian Calcotada.

Ale-8-One Barbecued Quail with Charred Green Garlic: Local farm raised quail are just so darned precious and fragile. Masquerading as dainty little chickens, they’re typically stuffed, tied, wrapped in some kind of pork, and quick cooked to keep the meat moist and tender.

Using kitchen shears, I snipped the backbones from two and a 1/2 pounds small Stonehenge Farm-raised Bobwhite quail and flattened them with the palm of my hand. Duly spatchcocked, I sliced the quail in half, and tossed the pieces into a gingery Ale-8-One quick brine (1 1/2 cups Ale-8-One soda, one tablespoon minced garlic, two tablespoon sugar, two tablespoon kosher salt, one tablespoon freshly grated ginger, a few grinds of cracked black pepper, and three tablespoons vegetable oil), and set them aside. A Late One. Sauce: Working over a medium flame, I sauteed two tablespoons minced garlic in three tablespoons olive oil. When the garlic bloomed from the heat, I deglazed the pan with one cup Ale-8-One and let it reduce by half before adding one and a 1/2 cups ketchup, 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, three tablespoons apple cider vinegar, three tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 teaspoon celery salt, one teaspoon smoked bourbon salt, and cracked black pepper. I brought the

sauce to a boil, reduced it to a simmer, let it rip for 20 minutes, and pulled it from the heat.

Green garlic: I rinsed and trimmed two bundles of Blue Moon Farm baby green garlic, patted them dry with a dish towel, and drizzled them with olive oil before showering them with salt and pepper.

Fire: After soaking a handful of hickory chips in water for 30 minutes, I ignited a fire in an outdoor grill. When the flames settled into glowing hot coals, I tossed the green garlic onto the grill grate and let them singe from the heat.. When they started to blacken and char, I pulled them from the grill, wrapped them in newspaper, and set them aside.

While the coals were still very hot, I brushed the quail with the reserved barbecue sauce and slipped them onto the grill breast side up. After four minutes, I flipped the birds and let the other side cook for four minutes before basting and flipping them for three additional minutes until they were cooked through, lacquered up, and caramelized.

I peeled the charred outer skins from the baby green garlic, twirled them onto a bread board, splashed them with fresh lemon juice, and nestled the barbecued quail halves into the smoky steamed ribbons. Instead of a roasted red bell pepper/almond -based romesco sauce, I slid a fresh red bell pepper-flecked gorgonzola sauce to the side. Tucked under the caramelized sticky crisped skin, the slight gaminess of the tender quail poked through the assertive smoky sauce. While the lemon-splashed charred green garlic countered the sweetness of the glaze with soft garlic undertones, the gorgonzola dipper provided a creamy sharp punch.

Free Will Astrology

By Rob Brezsny

ARIES (March 21–April 19): To convey the best strategy for you to employ in the coming weeks, I have drawn inspiration from a set of instructions composed by aphorist Alex Stein: Scribble, scribble, erase. Scribble, erase, scribble. Scribble, scribble, scribble, scribble. Erase, erase, erase. Scribble, erase. Keep what’s left. In other words, Aries, you have a mandate to be innocently empirical, robustly experimental, and cheerfully improvisational—with the understanding you must also balance your fun with ruthless editing. TAURUS (April 20–May 20): “One must think like a hero to behave like a merely decent human being,” wrote Taurus memoirist May Sarton. That’s a dauntingly high standard to live up to— but for the foreseeable future, it’s important that you try. In the coming weeks, you will need to maintain a heroic level of potency and excellence if you hope to keep your dreams on track and your integrity intact. Luckily, you will have an extraordinary potential to do just that. But you’ll have to work hard to fulfill the potential—as hard as a hero on a quest to find the real Holy Grail in the midst of all the fake Holy Grails. GEMINI (May 21–June 20): “Whatever you’re meant to do, do it now,” said novelist Doris Lessing. “The conditions are always impossible.” I hope you take her advice to heart, Gemini. In my astrological opinion, there is no good excuse for you to postpone your gratification or to procrastinate about moving to the next stage of a big dream. It’s senseless to tell yourself that you will finally get serious as soon as all the circumstances are perfect. CANCER (June 21–July 22): French painter Henri Matisse didn’t mind being unmoored, befuddled, or in-between. In fact, he regarded these states as being potentially valuable to his creative process. Here’s his testimony: “In art, truth and reality begin when one no longer understands what one is doing or what one knows.” I’m recommending that you try out his attitude, Cancerian. In my astrological opinion, the time has come for you to drum up the inspirations and revelations that become available when you don’t know where the hell you are and what the hell you’re doing. LEO (July 23–Aug 22): Proposed experiment: Imagine that all the lovers and would-be lovers you have ever adored are in your presence. Review in detail your memories of the times you felt thrillingly close to them. Fill yourself up with feelings of praise and gratitude for their mysteries. Sing the love songs you love best. Look into a mirror and rehearse your “I only have eyes for you” gaze until it is both luminous and smoldering. Cultivate facial expressions that are full of tender, focused affection. Got all that, Leo? My purpose in urging you to engage in these practices is that it’s the High Sexy Time of year for you. You have a license to be as erotically attractive and wisely intimate as you dare. VIRGO (Aug 23–Sept 22): “Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you’ll understand what little chance you have in trying to change others,” wrote editor Jacob M. Braude. Normally I would endorse his poignant counsel, but for the foreseeable future I am predicting that the first half of it won’t fully apply to you. Why? Because you are entering a phase that I regard as unusually favorable for the project of transforming yourself. It may not be easy to do so, but it’ll be easier than it has been in a long time. And I bet you will find the challenge to reimagine, reinvent, and reshape yourself at least as much fun as it is hard work. LIBRA (Sept 23–Oct 22): “Never turn down an adventure without a really good reason,”

says author Rebecca Solnit in her book The Faraway Nearby. That’s a thought she had as she contemplated the possibility of riding a raft down the Colorado River and through the Grand Canyon. Here’s how I suspect this meditation applies to you, Libra: There have been other times and there will be other times when you will have good reasons for not embarking on an available adventure. But now is not one of those moments. SCORPIO (Oct 23–Nov 21): Russian poet Vera Pavlova tells about how once when she was using a pen and paper to jot down some fresh ideas, she got a paper cut on her palm. Annoying, right? On the contrary. She loved the fact that the new mark substantially extended her life line. The palmistrylover in her celebrated. I’m seeing a comparable twist in your near future, Scorpio. SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22–Dec 21): Norway is mountainous, but its neighbor Finland is quite flat. A group of Norwegians has launched a campaign to partially remedy the imbalance. They propose that to mark the hundredth anniversary of Finland’s independence, their country will offer a unique birthday gift: the top of Halti mountain. Right now the 4,479-foot peak is in Norway. But under the proposed plan, the border between countries will be shifted so that the peak will be transferred to Finland. I would love you to contemplate generous gestures like this in the coming weeks, Sagittarius. It’s a highly favorable time for you to bestow extra imaginative blessings. (P.S. The consequences will be invigorating to your own dreams.) CAPRICORN (Dec 22–Jan 19): I believe that every one of us should set aside a few days every year when we celebrate our gaffes, our flaws, and our bloopers. During this crooked holiday, we are not embarrassed about the false moves we have made. We don’t decry our bad judgment or criticize our delusional behavior. Instead, we forgive ourselves of our sins. We work to understand and feel compassion for the ignorance that led us astray. Maybe we even find redemptive value in our apparent lapses; we come to see that they saved us from some painful experience or helped us avoid getting a supposed treasure that would have turned out to be a booby prize.

HELP WANTED G.A. Mavon & Co., an Illinois company, is seeking a permanent, full-time Equine Program Manager in Lexington, KY, who will be responsible for analyzing existing equine accounts and identifying opportunities in the equine insurance industry.

This position is located in Lexington, KY. Travel may be required for professional conferences or to

headquarters for meetings. Please send resume and three written recommendations to Catrina Letto, Vice President, G.A. Mavon & Co., 10 W. Chicago Ave., Hinsdale, IL 60521.

To apply, submit resume, samples of your work (and/ or portfolio link) and the name of your prospective supervising faculty advisor to: editor@aceweekly. com. All internships are multi-disciplinary, but include your area of focus in the subject line.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20–Feb 18): Sometimes the love you experience for those you care about makes you feel vulnerable. You may worry about being out of control or swooping so deeply into your tenderness that you lose yourself. Giving yourself permission to cherish and nurture can make you feel exposed, even unsafe. But none of that applies in the coming weeks. According to my interpretation of the astrological omens, love will be a source of potency and magnificence for you. It will make you smarter, braver, and cooler. Your words of power will be this declaration by Syrian poet Nizar Qabbani: “When I love / I feel that I am the king of time / I possess the earth and everything on it / and ride into the sun upon my horse.” (Translated by Lena Jayyusi and Christopher Middleton.) PISCES (Feb 19–March 20): In November 1916, at the height of World War I, the Swedish schooner Jönköping set sail for Finland, carrying 4,400 bottles of champagne intended for officers of the occupying Russian army. But the delivery was interrupted. A hostile German submarine sunk the boat, and the precious cargo drifted to the bottom of the Baltic Sea. The story didn’t end there, however. More than eight decades later, a Swedish salvage team retrieved a portion of the lost treasure, which had been well preserved in the frosty abyss. Taste tests revealed that the bubbly alcoholic beverage was “remarkably lightbodied, extraordinarily elegant, and fantastically fresh, with discreet, slow-building toasty aromas of great finesse.” (Source: tinyurl.com/ toastyaromas.) I foresee the potential of a similar resurrection in your future, Pisces. How deep are you willing to dive?
