This new work of art is just begging you to snap a photo in front of it. | Photos courtesy of DV8 Kitchen
Local restaurant DV8 Kitchen received some help from UK students in decorating the exterior of its East End location, 594 E. Third St., Ste. 100.
This new mural art features three different sets of colorful angel wings — one for adults, one for kids, and even one for pets.
We suggest stopping in this weekend to snag one of its famous cinnamon rolls, taking a few pictures with this bright + beautiful piece of new public artwork, and taking a walk on the newly completed Town Branch Trail.
Pro tip: During the holiday season, DV8 Kitchens releases a special eggnog-iced cinnamon roll that we just can’t get enough of.
Today’s issue was written by Aaron.
Editor’s pick: I have to tell you about another new local beer release I can’t wait to try — West Sixth’s new “Rye Barrel Porter.”
This unique barrel-aged beer is a collaboration between West Sixth Brewery + Bulleit Bourbon.
The beer was aged in Bulleit’s rye whiskey barrels and features notes of caramel, chocolate, dark fruit, and toffee.
Take a seat when sipping on this one because the ABV clocks in at 9%.
