For me, the weekend included hosting the Indy Men's Magazine Reunion Celebration benefiting Indy Reads. As the editor of that mag during its five-year run, I can't be objective about the pleasures of hearing such a talented batch of writers sharing their words. I can, however, say that Mass Ave.'s Indy Reads Bookstore is a terrific venue for readings and I look forward to attending--and hosting--many more events there.

I also visited Garfield Park for a Spirit & Place event, the Indianapolis Art Center to check out the latest addition to its sculpture garden, and the Service Center for a play by NoExit Performance. 

No, I haven't seen the new James Bond film yet. But I'm looking forward to it.

What about you? What did you hear, see or do this weekend?

    With all the hype we were looking forward to the new bond movie but are sadly disappointed, it is an ok action flick, but it's not Bond. Daniel Craig plays another serious spy role without the trademark cheeky humor. The new Q is a horribly boring pick, there are dozens of actors who would have made that role more fun. And yes I MISS the exploding pens. Tragically the original Bond car is destroyed before reaching its full prop potential. Judi Dench"s M plays out her role well, read about her macular degeneration elsewhere. Fiennes is good, Javier Bardiem is excellent. Bring back Pierce Brosnan please.

  1. If I were a developer I would be looking at the Fountain Square and Fletcher Place neighborhoods instead of Broad Ripple. I would avoid the dysfunctional BRVA with all of their headaches. It's like deciding between a Blackberry or an iPhone 5s smartphone. BR is greatly in need of updates. It has become stale and outdated. Whereas Fountain Square, Fletcher Place and Mass Ave have become the "new" Broad Ripples. Every time I see people on the strip in BR on the weekend I want to ask them, "How is it you are not familiar with Fountain Square or Mass Ave? You have choices and you choose BR?" Long vacant storefronts like the old Scholar's Inn Bake House and ZA, both on prominent corners, hurt the village's image. Many business on the strip could use updated facades. Cigarette butt covered sidewalks and graffiti covered walls don't help either. The whole strip just looks like it needs to be power washed. I know there is more to the BRV than the 700-1100 blocks of Broad Ripple Ave, but that is what people see when they think of BR. It will always be a nice place live, but is quickly becoming a not-so-nice place to visit.

  2. I sure hope so and would gladly join a law suit against them. They flat out rob people and their little punk scam artist telephone losers actually enjoy it. I would love to run into one of them some day!!

  3. Biggest scam ever!! Took 307 out of my bank ac count. Never received a single call! They prey on new small business and flat out rob them! Do not sign up with these thieves. I filed a complaint with the ftc. I suggest doing the same ic they robbed you too.

  4. Woohoo! We're #200!!! Absolutely disgusting. Bring on the congestion. Indianapolis NEEDS it.

  5. So Westfield invested about $30M in developing Grand Park and attendance to date is good enough that local hotel can't meet the demand. Carmel invested $180M in the Palladium - which generates zero hotel demand for its casino acts. Which Mayor made the better decision?
