  • Broad RippleBroad Ripple Ice Cream Station, or BRICS, is scheduled to open this spring in the former Whistle Stop Deli location on the Monon Trail, at 901 E. 64th St. The locally owned ice cream shop will feature 40 hand-dipped flavors, homemade waffle cones, malts, shakes and a selection of soups and sandwiches. The owners, Nonie and David Vonnegut-Gabovitch and Jennifer and David DuBow, plan to add Wi-Fi, an indoor fireplace and a station for Monon Trail users to fill water bottles.
  • Flatwater Restaurant on the Canal has opened in the former Canal Point Grill space at 832 Westfield Boulevard. The menu features several fish options, small plates like tacos and sliders and appetizers ranging from a Sweet and Spicy Asian Shrimp Saute to Best of the Wurst, an assortment of local meats.The owner is Michael Yount.
  • Scotty’s Thr3e Wise Men Brewing Company, a microbrewery and tasting room, is planned for the former Sunflower Market space at 1021 Broad Ripple Ave. Owner Scott Wise also expects the building to centralize corporate operations for Scotty's Brewhouse, including a commissary kitchen and business operations. IBJ first reported on the plans in February.
  • Monon Food Co., a homegrown fast-casual restaurant, is slated to open next to Plump's Last Shot in Broad Ripple, as we first reported in February. The restaurant will take the former home of Hoghead's BBQ at 6420 Cornell Ave. Owner Tim Williams said the restaurant will serve "healthy comfort food" sourced locally whenever possible.
  • Yes!
    Flatwater has $1 drinks all day Friday. Right Mike?
  • Flatwater Fresh
    A couple was in my office yesterday and said they had dined at Flatwater and was on their way there again for dinner. They said the food was fresh and everything made there was from scratch.
  • Scottys
    Scotty's must have gotten a hell of a deal on rent to move their brewing and corporate ops to such a prime retail location in BR.
  • Scotty's
    Scotty's didn't have a brewery before, so this is new, as far as the general operations go, it's my understanding that it's currently in a large space above his garage. So this new space will give them a more formal office.
  • Also in Broad Ripple
    I don't make it to BR often, but every time I've been there I've noticed that Bleecker Street bar on Guilford seems closed (and dusty), yet it remains furnished and I have never seen a "for lease" sign. Does anyone know what the status on this place is?
  • Bleecker Street
    I'm curious about Bleecker Street as well. I vaguely remember it being open randomly a few weeks ago, but no one was inside.

    What is their story?

  1. I am a Lyft driver who is a licensed CDL professional driver. ALL Lyft drivers take pride in providing quality service to the Indianapolis and surrounding areas, and we take the safety of our passengers and the public seriously.(passengers are required to put seat belts on when they get in our cars) We do go through background checks, driving records are checked as are the personal cars we drive, (these are OUR private cars we use) Unlike taxi cabs and their drivers Lyft (and yes Uber) provide passengers with a clean car inside and out, a friendly and courteous driver, and who is dressed appropriately and is groomed appropriately. I go so far as to offer mints, candy and/or small bottle of water to the my customers. It's a mutual respect between driver and passenger. With Best Regards

  3. In the first sentance "As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss are build quality & price." need a way to edit

  4. As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss is build quality & price. First none of these places is worth $1100 for a one bedroom. Downtown Carmel or Keystone at the Crossing in Indy. It doesn't matter. All require you to get in your car to get just about anywhere you need to go. I'm in one of the Carmel apartments now where after just 2.5 short years one of the kitchen cabinet doors is crooked and lawn and property maintenance seems to be lacking my old Indianapolis apartment which cost $300 less. This is one of the new star apartments. As they keep building throughout the area "deals" will start popping up creating shoppers. If your property is falling apart after year 3 what will it look like after year 5 or 10??? Why would one stay here if they could move to a new Broad Ripple in 2 to 3 years or another part of the Far Northside?? The complexes aren't going to let the "poor" move in without local permission so that's not that problem, but it the occupancy rate drops suddenly because the "Young" people moved back to Indy then look out.

  5. Why are you so concerned about Ace hardware? I don't understand why anyone goes there! Every time ive gone in the past, they don't have what I need and I end up going to the big box stores. I understand the service aspect and that they try to be helpful but if they are going to survive I think they might need to carry more specialty parts.
