From yappy hours, to pickleball clinics + our public pools — if there’s one thing we love a lot at LEXtoday, it’s our parks. And there’s a lot of them (and a lot of events) to love.

In celebration of National Parks & Recreation Month, the city is teaming up with local businesses to release exclusive drinks + treats that pair in-season ingredients and the great outdoors. Bonus: A portion of proceeds from each purchase will be donated to Trees Lexington to plant new trees in local parks.

Here’s what’s on the menu every Friday in July:
