Have you been to Caldo in Lexington Ky?

Nothing beats a hot bowl of soup after being out in the cold all day. There are some great places to get soup in town including Caldo in Lexington Ky. This new business that opened last year is part of a big nutrition craze that’s all about bone broth. People in LA and New York are drinking it for better health and there are even broth stands in Central Park. Regular consumption of broth is claimed to help your joints, strengthen your bones, improve your complexion, and build better immunity.

I think it’s cool that Lexington is in on this hot new trend! Caldo serves their broth in a cup so you can drink it as you would coffee or other hot beverage. Flavors include chicken, beef, miso, and ginger with the option to add extras such as chili oil, lemon, fish sauce or tomato paste. You can get your broth cold or even in a smoothie. You’ll also find salads, granola and coffee on the menu with everything centered around the intention of harnessing the healing powers of whole foods. Caldo is locally owned by a well-known chef and caterer who also owns Wild Thyme, a popular gourmet cooking shop.

The broth shop is located in the booming Warehouse Block shopping district just east of downtown. This recently renovated area is full of small locally owned businesses including National Provisions French bakery, market and beer hall (formally National Boulangerie), Designs Unlimited Jewelry, a trumpet maker, Breakout Games, Locals bar, and many more. Click these links to read previous blog articles about these businesses.

If you lived in any of the nearby neighborhoods you could walk to the gym, bakery, as well as the other shops. Neighborhoods within a half mile of Caldo in Lexington Ky include Kenwick, Mentelle Park, Bell Court, and Ashland Park. Most homes in the area are bungalows and brick houses about 100 years old. There are also some new townhouse condominiums being built near Warehouse Block. Click the links to see current homes for sale then contact me to learn more.

Have you heard about Breakout Games in Lexington Ky?

Just when I didn’t think Lexington could get any cooler, along comes yet another exciting new venture. Breakout Games in Lexington Ky opened in December and my guess is they will be wildly successful!

Breakout Games is in the entertainment and team building business where the object is to escape from a room. Three to eight players are given clues and have one hour to break out. Contestants look for objects and solve puzzles while working together in their race against the clock. In the Kidnapping Room, players begin the game blindfolded and handcuffed to a bed. In the Derby Room, the race is on to retrieve the Kentucky Derby trophy from the home of a thieving veterinarian. The company has three specially equipped rooms and are adding more. All games are monitored live with video cameras. If players get stuck they can ask for three clues- but will have time deducted from the clock for any additional ones. Play is $20 per person.
