What did the long weekend mean for you on the arts and entertainment front?

 

Did you catch Symphony on the Prairie's "Glorious Fourth"? Visit one of the new or long-established festivals? Get out of town for some R&R? Catch a concert at Klipsch? 

For me, the weekend included more film screenings for an upcoming column on the Indianapolis International Film Festial, participating in panel discussions and auctioneering for charity at the InConjunction science fiction/fantasy convention, chipping away at a fascinating biography of playwright Eugene O'Neill, and getting some old-time religion with "Smoke on the Mountain" at Beef & Boards.

What about you?

    Thursday, daughter #2 and hubby took me to the War Memorial with 105.7 tickets she had won. Awesome perch! Friday eve went to Centerbrook drive-in with daughter #1 and grandson and kids next door to see Despicable Me2 and Monsters University. Sat eve had a quiet time with a friend watching rented movies and pizza. Spent Sunday afternoon with daughter #1, then brought grandson home and had dinner with daughter #2 and hubby at Qdoba. Will spend Mon eve with best friend and a little white wine. Freedom is awesome! Best country in the world!
  • Festival!
    Saturday I was able to visit my hometown festival in Liberty, IN. Lunch at J's Dairy Inn, watched the parade, walked the festival area, visited Brookville Lake, dinner at the Liberty Bell Restaurant, followed by more of the festival...watched a rock band "Edge of Addiction" on the Courthouse square!
  • Lone Ranger
    In spite of the negative reviews, the Mrs and I went to see the movie, Lone Ranger on Friday. It was great. It was totally entertaining, which is why I go to movies. A little far fetched at times, but still fun. Another great Depp performance. I highly recommend. Not a foul word in it.

  1. I am a Lyft driver who is a licensed CDL professional driver. ALL Lyft drivers take pride in providing quality service to the Indianapolis and surrounding areas, and we take the safety of our passengers and the public seriously.(passengers are required to put seat belts on when they get in our cars) We do go through background checks, driving records are checked as are the personal cars we drive, (these are OUR private cars we use) Unlike taxi cabs and their drivers Lyft (and yes Uber) provide passengers with a clean car inside and out, a friendly and courteous driver, and who is dressed appropriately and is groomed appropriately. I go so far as to offer mints, candy and/or small bottle of water to the my customers. It's a mutual respect between driver and passenger. With Best Regards

  3. In the first sentance "As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss are build quality & price." need a way to edit

  4. As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss is build quality & price. First none of these places is worth $1100 for a one bedroom. Downtown Carmel or Keystone at the Crossing in Indy. It doesn't matter. All require you to get in your car to get just about anywhere you need to go. I'm in one of the Carmel apartments now where after just 2.5 short years one of the kitchen cabinet doors is crooked and lawn and property maintenance seems to be lacking my old Indianapolis apartment which cost $300 less. This is one of the new star apartments. As they keep building throughout the area "deals" will start popping up creating shoppers. If your property is falling apart after year 3 what will it look like after year 5 or 10??? Why would one stay here if they could move to a new Broad Ripple in 2 to 3 years or another part of the Far Northside?? The complexes aren't going to let the "poor" move in without local permission so that's not that problem, but it the occupancy rate drops suddenly because the "Young" people moved back to Indy then look out.

  5. Why are you so concerned about Ace hardware? I don't understand why anyone goes there! Every time ive gone in the past, they don't have what I need and I end up going to the big box stores. I understand the service aspect and that they try to be helpful but if they are going to survive I think they might need to carry more specialty parts.
