For me, the weekend included a visit to the Eiteljorg Museum for its exhbition of National Georgraphic photographs as well as a trek to the Phoenix Theatre for a performance of the new play "Guapa" (Great to see a packed house for a relatively unknown work).  

More on both in IBJ soon.

In the meantime, share your thoughts on the A&E that you experienced this weekend. Did you get to the Indiana State Museum for a look at the Emancipation Proclamation? Catch up on movies? Get the year off to a laugh at a comedy club? 

Your thoughts?

  • Silver Linings Playbook
    Went to see this with absolutely zero knowledge of the movie other than the title. I was really blown away at Bradley Cooper's acting -- very well done. After seeing it I looked up some critic/user reviews on IMDB just out of curiosity, and was surprised to see so many people tagging this as a 'Romantic Comedy'. I wouldn't characterize this move as a RomCom at all, and certainly would not shy away from seeing it for that reason. (This is a perfect example of why I try to remain completely ignorant about a movie before-hand, so that I can experience what the artists are trying to convey with no pre-conceptions.) When the movie ended I actually wanted to stay and watch it again, right then and there.
  • Tasha Lewis
    First Friday at Harrison Art Center led us to the opening of a great exhibit by sculptor Tasha Lewis. Tasha is a 2008 graduate of the International School of Indiana and a 2012 graduate of Swarthmore College. Terrific exhibit--worth checking out!
  • Beauty and Belief
    A stellar exhibit of Islamic art, with tons of historical, religious, mathematical and design-related context. I learned a lot. Kudos to the IMA for taking a chance with a potentially off-putting exhibit (for some folks, at least). It closes Sunday, so check it out soon.
  • Skyfall, finally
    Finally saw "Skyfall" and loved it, although the song by Adele may have been the best part.

  1. I had read earlier this spring that Noodles & Co was going to open in the Fishers Marketplace (which is SR 37 and 131st St, not 141st St, just FYI). Any word on that? Also, do you happen to know what is being built in Carmel at Pennsylvania and Old Meridian? May just be an office building but I'm not sure.

  2. I'm sorry, but you are flat out wrong. There are few tracks in the world with the history of IMS and probably NO OTHER as widely known and recognized. I don't care what you think about the stat of Indy Car racing, these are pretty hard things to dispute.

  3. Also wondering if there is an update on the Brockway Pub-Danny Boy restaurant/taproom that was planned for the village as well?

  4. Why does the majority get to trample on the rights of the minority? You do realize that banning gay marriage does not rid the world of gay people, right? They are still going to be around and they are still going to continue to exist. The best way to get it all out of the spotlight? LEGALIZE IT! If gay marriage is legal, they will get to stop trying to push for it and you will get to stop seeing it all over the news. Why do Christians get to decide what is moral?? Why do you get to push your religion on others? How would legalizing gay marriage expose their lifestyle to your children? By the way, their lifestyle is going to continue whether gay marriage is legalized or not. It's been legal in Canada for quite a while now and they seem to be doing just fine. What about actual rules handed down by God? What about not working on Sundays? What about obeying your parents? What about adultery? These are in the 10 Commandments, the most important of God's rules. Yet they are all perfectly legal. What about divorce? Only God is allowed to dissolve a marriage so why don't you work hard to get divorce banned? Why do you get to pick and choose the parts of the Bible you care about?

  5. Look at the bright side. With the new Lowe's call center, that means 1000 jobs at $10 bucks an hour. IMS has to be drooling over all that disposable income. If those employees can save all their extra money after bills, in five years they can go to the race LIVE. Can you say attendance boost?
