For me, the weekend included a visit to the Eiteljorg Museum's "Best of the West" show, tweeting absurdities during the Miss America pageant, and reading Stephen Greenblatt's speculative biography "Will in the World" in anticipation of a season that includes lots of Shakespeare plays. I also took time to engage in a spirited discussion with a local actor regarding a recent review

And you? Did you get to any of the Indy Jazz Fest performances around town? Take advantage of the glorious weather and hit the Zoo or Conner Prairie? Sit in on Chicago with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra?

What A&E did you experience over the weekend?

  • Buble Does It Again
    My husband and I saw Michael Buble last night at Banker's Life. His show was bigger and better, yet still felt intimate. And it's always amazing when he finishes with A Song for You off-mic, still filling the house with his sound and his passion. My husband, who wasn't keen on going to start with, is now a big fan. Bonus!
  • Diane Schuur was great
    Diane Schuur's set may have been a tad on the short side because it was a two-show night, but she (and the trio accompanying her) filled every song with tremendous energy and musicality. Few singers can move so effortlessly into their head voice and with great volume, but she did it consistently throughout, showing only slight signs of how aging has impacted her overall range. It was a wonderful night out.

  1. If what you stated is true, then this article is entirely inaccurate. "State sells bonds" is same as "State borrows money". Supposedly the company will "pay for them". But since we are paying the company, we are still paying for this road with borrowed money, even though the state has $2 billion in the bank.

  2. Andrew hit the nail on the head. AMTRAK provides terrible service and that is why the state has found a contractor to improve the service. More trips, on-time performance, better times, cleanliness and adequate or better restrooms. WI-FI and food service will also be provided. Transit from outlying areas will also be provided. I wouldn't take it the way it is but with the above services and marketing of the service,ridership will improve and more folks will explore Indy and may even want to move here.

  3. They could take the property using eminent domain and save money by not paying the church or building a soccer field and a new driveway. Ctrwd has monthly meetings open to all customers of the district. The meetings are listed and if the customers really cared that much they would show. Ctrwd works hard in every way they can to make sure the customer is put first. Overflows damage the surrounding environment and cost a lot of money every year. There have been many upgrades done through the years to help not send flow to Carmel. Even with the upgrades ctrwd cannot always keep up. I understand how a storage tank could be an eye sore, but has anyone thought to look at other lift stations or storage tanks. Most lift stations are right in the middle of neighborhoods. Some close to schools and soccer fields, and some right in back yards, or at least next to a back yard. We all have to work together to come up with a proper solution. The proposed solution by ctrwd is the best one offered so far.

  4. Fox has comments from several people that seem to have some inside information. I would refer to their website. Changed my whole opionion of this story.

  5. This place is great! I'm piggy backing and saying the Cobb salad is great. But the ribs are awesome. $6.49 for ribs and 2 sides?! They're delicious. If you work downtown, head over there.
