Moosnick Museum at Transy
Visit famous people graves – Jim Varney, Colonel Sanders, maybe others in the area?
Pops Resale – fun anytime not just for a non-date 🙂Charming-War6322
Walk around Greyline when you go see Cocaine Bear, it’s just across the street basically. Most of the small vendors are only open on the weekend, so its its real weird during the week.
But spend like 5 hours at the Peddler’s Mall.CatfishDog859
Try looking on atlas obscura.indiefolkfan
Lexington House Massive @ Horse & Jockey is every Saturday from 10-2AM. It’s a house music DJ set with a rotating group of DJ’s. Weird people, weird music, consuming weird things. You’d probably have fun.speck859
Hit up the Surplus store next to KY for KY and maybe Santa will be there! Lexington Art League/Loudon House is also just a block or two away and often has interesting exhibitions. I think you can also sometimes pop into people’s studios if they’re around to see what they’re working on.qacha

Go to carmax and sit in all the cars.lemondoughnut
Take in some games at the rusty scabbard after breakfast at Lexington Diner, shop for some wigs and finish with lunch at Dad’s Favorites.MyWorldTalkRadio
Elevate games was super cool, they opened recently in Hamburg. This is on the “active” side, so if you weren’t trying to sweat a little, then this might not be the best for youIrishKev95
It doesn’t appear that they have anything scheduled over that time, but if you see anything about a Tinderbox Circus Sideshow performance, RUN THERE AS FAST AS YOU CAN. It’s all the weird, and it’s wonderful.
It appears one half of TCS is part of a burlesque show Jan. 13, maybe look into that if it’s not too late.Savings-Library-166
