Want to hit the road with me?

For years I've been hoping to launch IBJ A&E road trips--bus trips to arts events that not only include tickets and transportation, but also lively en route discussions and up-close-and-personal encounters with artists, and more.

Well, it looks like that's going to happen. In conjunction with a local, established tour company, we are exploring options for our first offerings in ways that give great A&E value for the cost.

It could be dinner and an art show in Cincinnati, a play in Chicago, or a lecture and meet-and-greet in Louisville--with an emphasis on specific shows and exhibitions not offered here in Central Indiana. It might even be a quick trek to Bloomington for something special.

Do you want to be among the first contacted for such trips? Do you have ideas on what you'd be interested in?

Drop a note to me at lharry@ibj.com and include A&E Road Trips on the subject line.

I look forward to hearing from--and traveling with--you.

Your thoughts?

  • Sounds very fun to me!
    I hope you'll consider doing singles trips. I know plenty of solo people who would do more arts adventuring if they had a fun group to explore with. I'd sign up for sure, if I'm available to travel on those days.
  • Love it!
    I agree with inky, sounds great, thanks!
  • hit the road with IBJ
    I think a road trip to chicago or New York would be great!! Not only do they both have a lot of culture but so much easier to see on a tour bus when you dont have to worry about doing the driving!!

  1. President Obama has referred to the ACA as "Obamacare" any number of times; one thing it is not, if you don't qualify for a subsidy, is "affordable".

  2. One important correction, Indiana does not have an ag-gag law, it was soundly defeated, or at least changed. It was stripped of everything to do with undercover pictures and video on farms. There is NO WAY on earth that ag gag laws will survive a constitutional challenge. None. Period. Also, the reason they are trying to keep you out, isn't so we don't show the blatant abuse like slamming pigs heads into the ground, it's show we don't show you the legal stuf... the anal electroctions, the cutting off of genitals without anesthesia, the tail docking, the cutting off of beaks, the baby male chicks getting thrown alive into a grinder, the deplorable conditions, downed animals, animals sitting in their own excrement, the throat slitting, the bolt guns. It is all deplorable behavior that doesn't belong in a civilized society. The meat, dairy and egg industries are running scared right now, which is why they are trying to pass these ridiculous laws. What a losing battle.

  3. Eating there years ago the food was decent, nothing to write home about. Weird thing was Javier tried to pass off the story the way he ended up in Indy was he took a bus he thought was going to Minneapolis. This seems to be the same story from the founder of Acapulco Joe's. Stopped going as I never really did trust him after that or the quality of what being served.

  4. Indianapolis...the city of cricket, chains, crime and call centers!

  5. "In real life, a farmer wants his livestock as happy and health as possible. Such treatment give the best financial return." I have to disagree. What's in the farmer's best interest is to raise as many animals as possible as quickly as possible as cheaply as possible. There is a reason grass-fed beef is more expensive than corn-fed beef: it costs more to raise. Since consumers often want more food for lower prices, the incentive is for farmers to maximize their production while minimizing their costs. Obviously, having very sick or dead animals does not help the farmer, however, so there is a line somewhere. Where that line is drawn is the question.
