1. Hopscotch Garden
Where: Outside Braxton Brewing Company When: After you escape the hullabaloo of Braxton’s busy bar How: Look at it as a self-administered-field-sobriety-test. Check your reflexes on the hopscotch court—then call an Uber.
2. The Boxing Ring
Where: Pike Street, outside Franks Old Town Café and Cutman Barbershop When: The perfect place to knock out an Old Town sandwich like it’s a heavyweight How: Take out any pent-up frustrations on the mini-punching bags and Rock ’em Sock ’em Robots.
Where:Outside Inspirado When: After beer, cocktails, and a sumptuous repast at Inspirado or Covington Chili How: Pedal the cals away while watching a movie on the bike-powered projector screen. It’s spin class with a purpose!
Where: Outside Stoney’s Village Toy Shoppe in MainStrasse When: To prepare you (and the tots) for toy-shopping festivities How: If your kids are size- (and age-) appropriate, let them climb inside, on, or under to make some sick beats.
Where: Seventh and Greenup, outside Left Bank Coffeehouse When: Feeling over-caffeinated? Chill in the igloo. How: Like a Japanese Shinto shrine (or Twitter), the Wish-Igloo contains plaques on which visitors can inscribe their hopes and aspirations.
