For me, the weekend included a trip to the Tarkington for Civic's "Into the Woods" and a trip outdoors to Garfield Park for NoExit's "Our Experiences During the First Day of Alligators," a new play by David Hoppe.

I also stopped in to see the First Friday activity at the Harrison Center (including the work of Emma Overman) on my way to the Cabaret at the Columbia Club for a performance by Emily Skinner.

More on most of that later.

In the meantime, please share what you saw over the weekend, be it "Iron Man 3," the Onyx Festival at Indy Fringe, the ISO at Hilbert Circle Theatre or anything else.

Your thoughts?

  • OnyxFest
    I saw three plays in the OnyxFest at the Fringe Building over the weekend, and what a shame more people don't support this. OnyxFest features new plays by african-Anerican playwrights and they at least still have real issues to deal with. Who's responsible for black on black violence ("The Layover")? Dreams delayed and dreams chased ("Reflections") and the impact of slavery on the kids growing up in it ("Where the Waters Run"). Acting is uneven, some great, some not, but these are plays in development. Performances continue next weekend. Check it out.
  • Iron Man 3
    Took my great-nephew to see Iron Man 3 for his birthday--a S*U*C*C*E*S*S*! (and a plus, I enjoyed it too!)
  • Into The Woods/First Friday
    I saw Into The Woods at Civic last Saturday. I thought the actress portraying the "wicked witch" was amazing! Her voice gave me chills. Hurray to Red Riding Hood who did a fantastic job, even with an injury to her leg, which was bandaged up. I experienced First Friday at the Conrad Indianapolis. Several featured artists were there in person including Constance Scopelitis and Dale Enochs. The lobby and the Long-Sharp Gallery look amazing!

  1. By Mr. Lee's own admission, he basically ran pro-bono ads on the billboard. Paying advertisers didn't want ads on a controversial, ugly billboard that turned off customers. At least one of Mr. Lee's free advertisers dropped out early because they found that Mr. Lee's advertising was having negative impact. So Mr. Lee is disingenous to say the city now owes him for lost revenue. Mr. Lee quickly realized his monstrosity had a dim future and is trying to get the city to bail him out. And that's why the billboard came down so quickly.

  2. Merchants Square is back. The small strip center to the south of 116th is 100% leased, McAlister’s is doing well in the outlot building. The former O’Charleys is leased but is going through permitting with the State and the town of Carmel. Mac Grill is closing all of their Indy locations (not just Merchants) and this will allow for a new restaurant concept to backfill both of their locations. As for the north side of 116th a new dinner movie theater and brewery is under construction to fill most of the vacancy left by Hobby Lobby and Old Navy.

  3. Yes it does have an ethics commission which enforce the law which prohibits 12 specific items. google it

  4. Thanks for reading and replying. If you want to see the differentiation for research, speaking and consulting, check out the spreadsheet I linked to at the bottom of the post; it is broken out exactly that way. I can only include so much detail in a blog post before it becomes something other than a blog post.

  5. 1. There is no allegation of corruption, Marty, to imply otherwise if false. 2. Is the "State Rule" a law? I suspect not. 3. Is Mr. Woodruff obligated via an employment agreement (contractual obligation) to not work with the engineering firm? 4. In many states a right to earn a living will trump non-competes and other contractual obligations, does Mr. Woodruff's personal right to earn a living trump any contractual obligations that might or might not be out there. 5. Lawyers in state government routinely go work for law firms they were formally working with in their regulatory actions. You can see a steady stream to firms like B&D from state government. It would be interesting for IBJ to do a review of current lawyers and find out how their past decisions affected the law firms clients. Since there is a buffer between regulated company and the regulator working for a law firm technically is not in violation of ethics but you have to wonder if decisions were made in favor of certain firms and quid pro quo jobs resulted. Start with the DOI in this review. Very interesting.
