Every year, there's new hope that THIS will be the year! Just kidding: it ain't basketball, but we still go!
College Basketball Court
“Rupp Arena at Central Bank Center is an arena located in downtown Lexington, Kentucky, U.S. Since its opening in 1976, it has been the centerpiece of Central Bank Center (formerly Lexington Center), a convention and shopping facility owned by an arm of the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government, which is located next to the Lexington Hyatt and Hilton hotels. Rupp Arena also serves as home court to the University of Kentucky men's basketball program, and is named after legendary former Kentucky coach Adolph Rupp with an official capacity of 20,500. In Rupp Arena, the Kentucky Wildcats men's basketball team is second in the nation in college basketball home attendance. Rupp Arena also regularly hosts concerts, conventions and shows.”
“Local comfort food. Homemade pies. Lots of locally grown vegetables. 3 or 4 other Lexington locations. Popular with locals.”
