So did you spend time at the Stutz Building? Catch Civic's season closer, "Into the Woods," at the Tarkington? Or perhaps you were among the gang who joined me on the IBJ A&E Road Trip to Chicago Saturday to see the new musical "Big Fish." (More on that show later.)

 

Whatever you experienced on the A&E front over the weekend, let us know below.

  • Indy Acoustic Cafe Series
    Tom Rush, the great 60's folksinger who mentored both James Taylor and Jackson Browne, appeared April 27, at the Redeemer Presbyterian Church. One of the best acoustic artists and storytellers ever. Packed house...great show...IndyAcousticCafeSerires.com
    • Tom Rush
      I am so upset that I just learned about Tom Rush;s concert TODAY! That would have been so fantastic. Does the Indy Acoustic Cafe Series not publicize their stuff very much? I used to check their website, but I forget.
    • A Great Night at Stutz!
      A terrific crowd, positive energy and many, many artists had their doors open...all making for a great Friday night at the Stutz Building Open House. Bought some things, met some artists, drank some wine. All great!

    1. 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.

    2. If you only knew....

    3. 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.

    4. The facts contained in your post make your position so much more credible than those based on sheer emotion. Thanks for enlightening us.

    5. Please consider a couple of economic realities: First, retail is more consolidated now than it was when malls like this were built. There used to be many department stores. Now, in essence, there is one--Macy's. Right off, you've eliminated the need for multiple anchor stores in malls. And in-line retailers have consolidated or folded or have stopped building new stores because so much of their business is now online. The Limited, for example, Next, malls are closing all over the country, even some of the former gems are now derelict.Times change. And finally, as the income level of any particular area declines, so do the retail offerings. Sad, but true.
