my brother got accepted to grad school at university of kentucky, yey!  but my brother isn't exactly social, so i was wondering if some of you who live around there could tell me some great places to go around the campus?  i'm going to go up there with him and attempt to help him find things to do there.
he's obcessed with books so some bookstores, craft stores, music, food, etc. would be great.
thanks!

Congrats to your brother!  I live in Louisville KY and go to grad school there, so sorry i don't know anything about UK.  He might want to check out www.lexingtonmojo.c om.  (we have a site for Louisville).  Its a social site, that has a bit of everything.  Lots of people use it as a dating service; but theres groups and forums for every different interest out there.  Mojo sponsors events around town; and people with similar hobbies get together for things like pub quizzes, games, chess, darts, or anything else.  Just an idea.  Best of luck to him, and what a great sister you are! ~ beth

If he's a bookstore person, I highly suggest searching out Joseph-Beth booksellers. It's indie (Yes, Virginia, they do exist!) and it's huge. I wish I could give specific directions for you, but I'm in the situation you are: a sibling is in Lexington, not me. Also, I suggest taking a walk aroung Transylvania University, there are some fun thing to do around there, and it's right up Broadway from UK.

Transy is pretty great. It's the oldest University this side of the Appalachians, and it's got one of the early professors buried in one of the buildings! (I can think of nothing cooler. The building is Old Morrison Hall, It faces 3rd st and Gratts Park). Also, John Hunt Morgan's (as in Morgan's Raiders) house is right down Broadway from Transy.

My favorites as far as social stuff goes, though, is 3rd St. Stuff, a very funky little coffee shop w/in walking distance of TU (but they do have they're own parking lot) and Jonk, a vintage store that's also really close.

That's all I know, butI'll be sure to do some more questioning of my sister. She might have some more ideas to help your brother get acclimated!

There used to be a GREAT indie record store called CD Central across from the north campus dorms at UK.  There were a few coffee shops in the area directly north of UK when I was there. but I don't remember the names - I haven't been back to Lexington in a few years and my memories are fading.  Embarrassed

Good luck to your brother.....UK is a great place. I wish I had stayed there for grad school. What is he studying?
