Coffee LoveI like coffee, good coffee. Usually two in the morning and maybe even one in the afternoon. In between, I drink a ton of water. And in the evening I enjoy a nice glass of wine to wind down my day.

Lucky for me, I live in an area that offers several ways to quench my thirst.

#NKY has some of the best coffee shops around. And believe me, I have tried coffees from all over the U.S. If you are looking for a great morning warm-up, check out these local shops.


Many of you already know that #NKY has a passion for great bourbon. But did you know that there are 2 million more barrels of bourbon than there are people in the entire Commonwealth of Kentucky? With that many barrels available, maybe we should grab a glass of bourbon tonight.

One that might surprise you is the KY wine selection. A recently published book called “Wineing Your Way Across Kentucky: Recipes, History and Scenery” by Becky Kelley shares a variety of Kentucky wines. Included are brief explanations of the kinds of wine from dry to dessert, and then a full-color map of nine recommended wine tours.
