You-review-it Monday

For me, the weekend included "Next Fall" at the Phoenix, a visit to a newly refreshed Conner Prairie, another encounter with Ridley Scott's aliens via "Prometheus," watching Dance Kalaidoscope moved by Cole Porter, and stop-ins at the open houses of some high school friends bolding going into theater and creative writing.

Plus I had a blast live tweeting the Tony Awards with some of you (twitter: IBJARTS).

Sound busy? Well, there was a lot that I missed, including Pride Fest, Asia Fest, Talbott Street Art Fair, Independent Art & Music Fest and more. I'm assuming some of you were at those or others. Fill me in.

Your thoughts?

  • Stacey Kent
    Stacey Kent at the Cabaret at the Columbia Club was as close to perfect as a show can be. While not heavily publicized, the show sold out both nights and her combination of standards and original songs had the audience enthralled.
  • Talbot Pride
    Was at both the Talbot Street Art Fair and Pride Fest. Was disappointed that the art never really seems to change though I did see a couple of vendors highlighting "Man Cave" art!! And I could not believe the crowds at Pride Fest nor the corporate sponsorships!!
  • Concert and Art Fair
    While not technically over the weekend, I saw the Punch Brothers last Wednesday at the Palladium in Carmel. Not sold out but a very entertaining show to a very enthusiastic crowd. I was also at Talbott Street Art Fair over the weekend. I was relieved to see less jewelry vendors this year than in the past. I also saw several artists I have not seen at the event before which was refreshing. Didn’t make it to Pride but I heard it was a blast.

  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.
