Leaving Lexington (Part2)

I was surprised at the diversity of the food in Lexington. We stopped by Sav’s Grill & West African Cuisine for a quick bite. I had a fantastic lamb dish. Matt had a vegetarian soup with dumplings made from plantain flour. The dumplings were kinda chewy and hearty. They worked really well with the soup.  Apparently Sav’s also has an ice cream shop that’s kitty corner to this.

We were walking to a place called Nat’s but on the way we were enticed by the smells coming from Bombay Bar and Grill. We went in and ate too much indian food. We got 8/10 on the spicy scale which didn’t seem that hot while eating it. The next day, however, my body let me know how hot the food was. (The soup appetizer was the hottest part of the meal)

Dave took us to Indi’s Fried Chicken with the promise that it was the best Kentucky fried chicken he has had. I’m not big on fried chicken, but hot DAMN if that wasn’t the best fried chicken I’ve had. We ordered some hot wings and some fried chicken with greens.

We ordered some “New York” pizza from Goodfella’s which was stupid huge. The bread was a little too thick for NY Pizza in my opinion but it was a pretty good slice. Pazzo’s pizza is also worth mentioning. They have some crazy hoagies which we had sampled last year on our way up from Tampa to Detroit.

What was really cool about Lexington is that we were able to walk to everything from Dave’s place. Which is fortunate since winter didn’t want to relinquish its grip this year. Spring finally showed up as we were leaving. While walking we got a chance to look around at the scenery and architecture. Some of the houses look like they were held together with elmer’s glue and a whole lotta love. These conditions were no doubt due to additions over the years, settling, and whatever other environmental factors.. Lexington felt older than any of the places I’ve lived in.

Dave and his roommate Ian were great hosts and suffered us well. I’m sure I’ll continue to reflect fondly on the time we spent in Kentucky. I’ve forgotten too much about the trip already so my goal is to write daily; even if they’re little notes so that I don’t forgot the goings on to relay later.

MSU Tailgate. VICTORY FOR MSUUUUU

Sweet sweet football. MSU vs Georgia in the Outback bowl. Many beers were had, grilled some meats and ate some sides. We just used an antenna to pick up a signal.  It’s weird getting an HD signal from the air.  The only downside is that instead of getting ghost images and crackly reception like analog.. the video cuts out and you get the weird artifacts.  I was going to build an antenna for this, but the previous 2 days didn’t leave me a whole lot of time for that.

Matt bought us a quiet Honda generator. It is very quiet. It’s ridiculous how nice it is. Some people across from us had a generator that they placed 5 cars away from them and it was still louder than ours was. Definitely worth the $$$ for the quiet.

Pretty alright time, it was just a lot colder than I would have liked.  Actually it wouldn’t have really been that cold if the wind hadn’t picked up so much. Still had a good time and got to see friends though. Also MSU won, so that was a nice bonus. Ridiculous triple over time win over Georgia, lots of glum Georgia fans trudged past us. We ended up parking next to the bus fleet that brought the cheerleaders and band down. Also we only had to pay $25 for parking!
