Just visited today. Was surprised and have actually fallen in love with the town.

Bars -- yeah I know of two -- the Palm and Macado's (which is where law students go).

Enjoy!

Also -- fried chicken at the Southern Inn is delicious.

There are technically 3 bars macs, southern inn, and palms. Nobody ever goes to the palms. Normally everyone is either at macs or southern

On this topic, the following is an actual quote from the ASW last weekend. A student on the panel was responding to questions. When describing how used to Lexington you get and what it's like to go to a city again: "Why would you even NEED a third bar?" It got a lot of laughs.

Looks like a good place to be to study and stuff . I like the quiet town setting for hitting the study. Hoping for a city life afterwards though haha. Overall I was really impressed and the Walmart was nice... Hahaha

I had some great pizza by Main Street. I mistakenly ordered to slices. They were huge and so good!!! I did see a dominos there but for the life of me I don't get why someone in such a small town would give money to chain and not support a small business owner.

I loved it, too. Honestly, my only two issues with the school are that (1) it's on the other side of the country from my family and (2) I have no idea what my husband would do there. If it were just me, I know I would have an awesome three years at W&L, but the hubs and the fam are pretty big factors.

I can def get that. I do think they have a special club for spouses or at least that's what one guy said in the student life panel.

Also Roanoke and Charlottesville arent too far away if your husband doesn't mind a <= 1 hour commute? depending on where you live as well since it's extremely cheap about 15~20 min south of lexington towards Roanoke so the commute would be cut for your husband and you wouldn't have to be too far from the school either.

I live an hour and half drive from Lexington so I'm just talking off the top of my head but if you want more detailed info I could look into it for you. Just let me know
