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 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!
