On Sunday afternoons in September, you can combine your love of food and historic homes at Moveable Feast's Sunday Salons.
Each event will be held at a different historic, architecturally significant home, and "will be uniquely styled by our generous hosts. All will serve drinks and food with a heaping helping of up-close encounters with the arts and fine art collections," marketing chairman Robert Flynn said.
Tickets are $75 for each event or $250 for all four. Hours are 2:30 to 5:30 p.m.. Reservations are limited. Call (859) 252-2867 or go to Feastlex.org. Moveable Feast Lexington is an organization that delivers meals to persons with HIV/AIDS and persons under hospice care.
