The Downtown Lexington Corp. is selling limited-edition Tervis tumblers featuring illustrations of beloved Lexington landmarks, including Gratz Park, Transylvania University and the old courthouse. The cups are $25 and are dipped in Maker’s Mark-style Kentucky blue wax.

The DLC Foundation, a nonprofit organization, also is offering raffle tickets, $20 each, for a Marker’s Mark Experience. The winner will receive a VIP distillery experience for as many as 12 people ages 21 or older. The day will include a private chef’s dinner beneath a Dale Chihuly glass installation, and each guest will get to dip their own bottle of Marker’s Mark in the signature red wax. The drawing will be July 8 during Kentucky Cork, Tap and Barrel.

Cups and raffle tickets are available at Thursday Night Live, 4:30 to 9 p.m. Thursdays at Cheapside Park, 251 West Main Street. Or drop by the offices at 333 West Vine Street, Suite 201. Call 859-335-8640 or go to Downtownlex.com.
