I spent more time at the Indianapolis Convention Center and Mass Ave. this weekend than I did at home thanks to Gen Con and the Indy Fringe Festival.You can find some of my initial thoughts on the annual gaming festival here and my guide for Fringe newcomers here. 

Did you go to eitherof the above? If so, do you have a new favorite board game? Or a Fringe show to recommend? 

Or perhaps you opted for the final days of the 2013 Indiana State Fair. Or Sausage Fest? 

What did you do onthe A&E front this weekend?

  • As much Fringe as you want
    I won't recommend just any of the Fringe performances. I will recommend ALL of the Fringe performances. Remember, the artists get 100% of the gate. Their works are unjuried and uncensored. They are given a voice in a safe, welcoming environment. That is the essence of Fringe. And, oh by the way, the Fringe has an economic impact in Indianapolis that makes a lot of merchants very happy. Make yourself happy. Go Fringe.
    • Check the Reviews
      If you are a first time Fringer, the schedule of 77 plays can be a little overwhelming. Don't let that stop you. Come to the Avenue, ask anyone with a Fringe Button what they have seen, and read a few of the reviews on http://www.indyfringetalk.org/category/fringe13-reviews/ Then share your favorites with others.
    • Fringe is great!
      One of the best summer festivals Indy has.
    • Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
      Bid Bad Voodoo Daddy put on a wonderful show Sat. night at Conner Prairie to a large and appreciative crowd. I look forward to their return in 2014!

    1. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

    2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

    3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

    4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

    5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
