For me, the weekend included quality time zipping through Walt Disney World's revamped Test Track ride, exploring the 'Beauty and the Beast' and 'Little Mermaid' areas of New Fantasyland, and hanging out with the likes of Pluto, Donald and Mickey. 

In between, I read and screened some films in preperation for upcoming articles (looking forward to telling you about "Les Miserables").

And you? What did you see, hear or otherwise do? Was it a Dance Kaleidoscope weekend? "Yuletide Celebration" with the ISO? Check in with Amahl and his night visitors at the Indianapolis Opera? Catch a concert or a movie?

Whatever you did on the A&E front, fill us in here.

Your thoughs?

  • $3Bill Comedy
    I haven't laughed so hard in a long time! If you get a chance, snap up tickets for $3Bill's "The Fancy Schmancy Razzle Dazzle Hoity Toity Black Tie (optional) Christmas Affair Show!" The Pulp Fiction inspired Santa scene & the Elf on a Shelf parody are worth the $15 alone! It's easily the funniest Christmas show around!
  • Amahl
    Caught Amahl and the Night Visitors at Indy Opera this weekend. It was a beautifully done show - way better than the typical church productions - and the kids LOVED it, even more than hanging with Santa in the lobby!
  • looking forward
    While I didn't do anything in Indy, I can not wait to see the $3bill show next weekend. This cast is a team of experienced, multi-talented actors/comedians, with keen dynamic timing, and laugh your a#@ off material.
  • Holiday Gift
    My son and I attended "Rejoice," Butler's annual musical gift to the community, at Closed Hall. This year's was the best show yet, with the ethereal performance of "Rejoice" the highlight of the evening. Thanks to Butler for the present.

  1. How much you wanna bet, that 70% of the jobs created there (after construction) are minimum wage? And Harvey is correct, the vast majority of residents in this project will drive to their jobs, and to think otherwise, is like Harvey says, a pipe dream. Someone working at a restaurant or retail store will not be able to afford living there. What ever happened to people who wanted to build buildings, paying for it themselves? Not a fan of these tax deals.

  2. Uh, no GeorgeP. The project is supposed to bring on 1,000 jobs and those people along with the people that will be living in the new residential will be driving to their jobs. The walkable stuff is a pipe dream. Besides, walkable is defined as having all daily necessities within 1/2 mile. That's not the case here. Never will be.

  3. Brad is on to something there. The merger of the Formula E and IndyCar Series would give IndyCar access to International markets and Formula E access the Indianapolis 500, not to mention some other events in the USA. Maybe after 2016 but before the new Dallara is rolled out for 2018. This give IndyCar two more seasons to run the DW12 and Formula E to get charged up, pun intended. Then shock the racing world, pun intended, but making the 101st Indianapolis 500 a stellar, groundbreaking event: The first all-electric Indy 500, and use that platform to promote the future of the sport.

  4. No, HarveyF, the exact opposite. Greater density and closeness to retail and everyday necessities reduces traffic. When one has to drive miles for necessities, all those cars are on the roads for many miles. When reasonable density is built, low rise in this case, in the middle of a thriving retail area, one has to drive far less, actually reducing the number of cars on the road.

  5. The Indy Star announced today the appointment of a new Beverage Reporter! So instead of insightful reports on Indy pro sports and Indiana college teams, you now get to read stories about the 432nd new brewery open or some obscure Hoosier winery winning a county fair blue ribbon. Yep, that's the coverage we Star readers crave. Not.
