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 also a "vet" of several Cirque shows and this one left me flat. It didn't have the amount of acrobatic stunts as the others that I have seen. I am still glad that I went to it and look forward to the next one but I put Varekai as my least favorite.

  2. Looking at the two companies - in spite of their relative size to one another -- Ricker's image is (by all accounts) pretty solid and reputable. Their locations are clean, employees are friendly and the products they offer are reasonably priced. By contrast, BP locations are all over the place and their reputation is poor, especially when you consider this is the same "company" whose disastrous oil spill and their response was nothing short of irresponsible should tell you a lot. The fact you also have people who are experienced in franchising saying their system/strategy is flawed is a good indication that another "spill" has occurred and it's the AM-PM/Ricker's customers/company that are having to deal with it.

  3. Daniel Lilly - Glad to hear about your points and miles. Enjoy Wisconsin and Illinois. You don't care one whit about financial discipline, which is why you will blast the "GOP". Classic liberalism.

  4. Isn't the real reason the terrain? The planners under-estimated the undulating terrain, sink holes, karst features, etc. This portion of the route was flawed from the beginning.

  5. You thought no Indy was bad, how's no fans working out for you? THe IRl No direct competition and still no fans. Hey George Family, spend another billion dollars, that will fix it.
