For me, the weekend began in Florida (look for a story in the upcoming IBJ Golf and Travel Guide) and ended back in Indy.

Once I adjusted to the temperature change, I caught The Fab Faux at the Palladium and look forward to writing about this unique cover band in an upcoming blog or column.

In the meantime, fill be in on what you saw, hear or did on the A&E front this weekend. Did you see Kurt Elling at the Cabaret? The Elvis tribute show at Pike Performing Arts Center? "Arsenic and Old Lace" at Beef & Boards or "Jackie and Me" at the IRT? Something else?

Your thoughts?

  • Book of Mormon
    Went to Chicago for Book of Mormon. Loved it! It was great, perfect, and had great music but I must admit I shudder to think when my grandkids ask about my top musicals..."Music Man, Les Miz, Annie, uh, Book of Mormon" I might end up leaving that one off of the list!
    • Mormon
      Glad you enjoyed "Book of Mormon." My thoughts on the show can be found here: http://www.ibj.com/lous-views-the-book-of-mormon-and-shock-values/PARAMS/article/38829
    • Kurt Elling
      Kurt Elling was one of the best shows I've ever seen. The Cabaret is doing great work bringing performers like him to Indianapolis.
    • FabFauxFabulous
      Awesome show by the FabFaux. I would pay the price of admission again just to hear Jim Boggia sing "OH DARLING"
    • Indy Acoustic Cafe Series
      IACS is the best kept secret in Indianapolis. Saturday night's show was the opener, Cincinnati area singer/songwriter Griffin House, and headliner Ari Hest, an amazing singer and songwriter from New York City. The best acoustic music you will ever hear in a great listening room at the Wheeler Center for the Arts in Fountain Square. Highly recommended...next show is 2/23...the great David Wilcox. Thanks to Mark Butterfield for hosting these shows for 15 years now, the best entertainment, at very inexpensive prices...IndyAcousticCafeSeries.com for online tickets.

    1. Why not take some time to do some research before traveling to that Indiana town or city, and find the ones that are no smoking either inside, or have a patio? People like yourself are just being selfish, and unnecessarily trying to take away all indoor venues that smokers can enjoy themselves at. Last time I checked, it is still a free country, and businesses do respond to market pressure and will ban smoking, if there's enough demand by customers for it(i.e. Linebacker Lounge in South Bend, and Rack and Helen's in New Haven, IN, outside of Fort Wayne). Indiana law already unnecessarily forced restaurants with a bar area to be no smoking, so why not support those restaurants that were forced to ban smoking against their will? Also, I'm always surprised at the number of bars that chose to ban smoking on their own, in non-ban parts of Indiana I'll sometimes travel into. Whiting, IN(just southeast of Chicago) has at least a few bars that went no smoking on their own accord, and despite no selfish government ban forcing those bars to make that move against their will! I'd much rather have a balance of both smoking and non-smoking bars, rather than a complete bar smoking ban that'll only force more bars to close their doors. And besides IMO, there are much worser things to worry about, than cigarette smoke inside a bar. If you feel a bar is too smoky, then simply walk out and take your business to a different bar!

    2. As other states are realizing the harm in jailing offenders of marijuana...Indiana steps backwards into the script of Reefer Madness. Well...you guys voted for your Gov...up to you to vote him out. Signed, Citizen of Florida...the next state to have medical marijuana.

    3. It's empowering for this niche community to know that they have an advocate on their side in case things go awry. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lrst9VXVKfE

    4. Apparently the settlement over Angie's List "bundling" charges hasn't stopped the practice! My membership is up for renewal, and I'm on my third email trying to get a "basic" membership rather than the "bundled" version they're trying to charge me for. Frustrating!!

    5. Well....as a vendor to both of these builders I guess I have the right to comment. Davis closed his doors with integrity.He paid me every penny he owed me. Estridge,STILL owes me thousands and thousands of dollars. The last few years of my life have been spent working 2 jobs, paying off the suppliers I used to work on Estridge jobs and just struggling to survive. Shame on you Paul...and shame on you IBJ! Maybe you should have contacted the hundreds of vendors that Paul stiffed. I'm sure your "rises from the ashes" spin on reporting would have contained true stories of real people who have struggled to find work and pay of their debts (something that Paul didn't even attempt to do).
