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. "This was a very localized, Indiana issue," he said. As in, Indiana failed to expand Medicaid to cover its poor citizens resulting in the loss of essential medical services, including this EMS company. Well done, Indiana GOP. Here are the real death panels: GOP state governments who refuse to expand Medicaid for political reasons.

    2. In the "one for all, all for none" socialist doctrine the sick die...this plus obama"care" equates to caucasian genocide plus pushed flight to cities thus further eroding the conservative base and the continualed spiral toward complete liberal/progressive/marxist America.

    3. There is a simple reason why WISH is not reporting on this story. LIN has others stations in different markets that are affiliated with CBS. Reporting about CBS blindsiding WISH/LIN due to CBS's greed and bullying tatics would risk any future negoations LIN will have with CBS in other markets.

    4. My best always! Dave Wilson

    5. How did Columbus, Ohio pull off a car share service without a single dollar of public subsidies? They must not have a mayor who is on the take like Indianapolis. Daimler Benz offers Columbus residents their Smart Cars on a market-driven basis: "This has some neat features. Cars don’t have to be picked up and dropped off at fixed points. You find one with your smart phone based on GPS, and drop it off anywhere in the service area you can find a spot – even at a meter. These cars aren’t required to feed the meter so you get free on street parking while using them. I was told this system was put in place on a market basis without subsidies – and that the vendor actually pays the city for the use of the meters." http://www.urbanophile.com/2014/05/26/checking-in-on-columbus/
