LexBrunch—it’s musically delicious

A new free, bi-weekly collaboration featuring the best in Lexington music and food is headed to The Burl. LexBrunch, hosted by Lex Effect, aims to bring the community together with a platter featuring local music, food trucks and vendors every other Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. beginning on Feb. 12.

According to Kaelyn Query, President and founder of Lex Effect, the event was dubbed ‘LexBrunch’ for its uncanny likeness to ‘Let’s brunch.’

The music and brunch concept is one that Lex Effect has hosted individually in the past, but LexBrunch is their first dive into the idea as a series of events, following in the suit of Manchester Music Hall’s Bluegrass Brunch and other similar local events.

Refreshments at the brunches will include beer from Rhinegeist Brewing, wines from Zonin Wines, vodka from Prairie Vodka and coffee from Common Grounds, and the series is presented by Lexington Community Radio.

Lexington’s Distillery District has quickly grown into one of the most happening spots in town with recent additions of Goodfellas pizza in the old James Pepper distillery and the opening of The Burl in July to go along with Manchester Music Hall, Crank & Boom, The Break Room and Middle Fork. 

 The Burl provides a quaint, intimate atmosphere inside an old train-loading station. An interior encompassed in rustic wood allows for stellar acoustics during concerts, and the open porches stretching the length of the building on both sides offer patrons a breath of fresh air.

The inaugural instalment of LexBrunch will feature revered blues artist Tee Dee Young and food from Doodles Food Truck. LexBrunch will host 22 events in 2017, with upcoming musical guests including Restless Leg String Band, Warren Byrom & Fabled Canelands, The Baja Yetis, and Daisy and Otto Helmuth, among others.
