For me, the weekend began in Florida (look for a story in the upcoming IBJ Golf and Travel Guide) and ended back in Indy.

Once I adjusted to the temperature change, I caught The Fab Faux at the Palladium and look forward to writing about this unique cover band in an upcoming blog or column.

In the meantime, fill be in on what you saw, hear or did on the A&E front this weekend. Did you see Kurt Elling at the Cabaret? The Elvis tribute show at Pike Performing Arts Center? "Arsenic and Old Lace" at Beef & Boards or "Jackie and Me" at the IRT? Something else?

Your thoughts?

  • Book of Mormon
    Went to Chicago for Book of Mormon. Loved it! It was great, perfect, and had great music but I must admit I shudder to think when my grandkids ask about my top musicals..."Music Man, Les Miz, Annie, uh, Book of Mormon" I might end up leaving that one off of the list!
    • Mormon
      Glad you enjoyed "Book of Mormon." My thoughts on the show can be found here: http://www.ibj.com/lous-views-the-book-of-mormon-and-shock-values/PARAMS/article/38829
    • Kurt Elling
      Kurt Elling was one of the best shows I've ever seen. The Cabaret is doing great work bringing performers like him to Indianapolis.
    • FabFauxFabulous
      Awesome show by the FabFaux. I would pay the price of admission again just to hear Jim Boggia sing "OH DARLING"
    • Indy Acoustic Cafe Series
      IACS is the best kept secret in Indianapolis. Saturday night's show was the opener, Cincinnati area singer/songwriter Griffin House, and headliner Ari Hest, an amazing singer and songwriter from New York City. The best acoustic music you will ever hear in a great listening room at the Wheeler Center for the Arts in Fountain Square. Highly recommended...next show is 2/23...the great David Wilcox. Thanks to Mark Butterfield for hosting these shows for 15 years now, the best entertainment, at very inexpensive prices...IndyAcousticCafeSeries.com for online tickets.

    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.
