You had lots of choices this weekend, with "The Lyons" opening at the Phoenix Theatre, First Friday gallery stops througout downtown, Oscar-winning movies to catch up on at a theater near you, "Sister Act" raising the roof at the Murat (see my review here), and lots more. Or maybe you stayed home and read a book-which would be fine, too.

So what did you experience on the A&E front over the past few days? 

Your thoughts?

Oh, and if you act now, there's still a chance to win tickets to Dance Kaleidoscope's "Piaf Plus" here.

  • Live music!
    Hillbilly Happy Hour at the Melody Inn, with Indy's own Gamblin' Christmas and Columbus, Ohio-based Mike's Wilson. You can't call either of those acts strictly country, but some element of "hillbilly" definitely applies. At 5 bucks, HHH is consistently one of the best bargains in Indy. Then Saturday, ukuleles at Indy Hostel with the kids! Flea Bitten Dawgs and Uncle Elvis. You'd be amazed at the depth of ukulele music that the Dawgs can do. Love the Hostel as a family friendly venue.
  • Wine, Witches and a Wicked Fiddle
    We indulged in all manner of entertainment this weekend. Friday night we attended the Ice Miller WFYI Wine Tasting event. Saturday, we donned our masks for a night of dinner and dancing to Lemon Wheel the 9th Annual Gaia Works Masquerade Ball to benefit Coburn Place. This year the Wyndham outdid themselves on the buffet. The food was delicious and the meat was melt in your mouth tender. Already have my calendar marked for the 10th anniversary ball March 1, 2014. I hear it will be a roaring 20s theme. Finally, we wrapped up the weekend with Natalie MacMaster at the Palladium. If you enjoy bluegrass or Celtic music, MacMaster is NOT to be missed. This was the second of her concerts we were lucky enough to attend. And if you like Celtic fiddle, be sure to catch local Celtic fiddler Emily Anne Thompson around town.

  1. PJ - Mall operators like Simon, and most developers/ land owners, establish individual legal entities for each property to avoid having a problem location sink the ship, or simply structure the note to exclude anything but the property acting as collateral. Usually both. The big banks that lend are big boys that know the risks and aren't mad at Simon for forking over the deed and walking away.

  2. Do any of the East side residence think that Macy, JC Penny's and the other national tenants would have letft the mall if they were making money?? I have read several post about how Simon neglected the property but it sounds like the Eastsiders stopped shopping at the mall even when it was full with all of the national retailers that you want to come back to the mall. I used to work at the Dick's at Washington Square and I know for a fact it's the worst performing Dick's in the Indianapolis market. You better start shopping there before it closes also.

  3. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

  4. If you only knew....

  5. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.
