— The Feinstein Initiative, the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library, the Indiana Historical Society, the Carmel Clay Historical Society and IUPUI’s Ruth Lilly Special Collections and Archives, working under the umbrella Integrated Exhibition Alliance, have plans to tie together concurrent exhibitions in early January. The focus will be on change in the 1960s.

— Modern Painters magazine has put the Conrad Hotel’s Long-Sharp Gallery on its list of 100 best fall art gallery exhibits in the world. Forty-two of those are in the U.S. The show opens Friday.

— Don’t look for Monument Circle to be blocked off for the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra’s season-opening gala. The Sept. 20 post-concert dinner is being held at the Roof Ballroom. The concert, featuring violinist Hillary Hahn, offers the first chance for ISO patrons to sample the Hilbert Circle Theatre’s new seats.

— Got a gimmick? The Pacers will be holding auditions Sept. 9 for halftime acts and other game-day positions. Pre-registration is a must or you’ll just have to put that trampoline back in the car and go home.

— John Skewes, author of the “Larry Gets Lost” children’s book series, has set his most recent one at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. He’ll be there Friday signing copies of “Larry Gets Lost at the Museum.” Somebody get that dog a GPS.

— And, no, I won't be reviewing Sydney Leathers' new film. Stop asking.

  1. The east side does have potential...and I have always thought Washington Scare should become an outlet mall. Anyone remember how popular Eastgate was? Well, Indy has no outlet malls, we have to go to Edinburgh for the deep discounts and I don't understand why. Jim is right. We need a few good eastsiders interested in actually making some noise and trying to change the commerce, culture and stereotypes of the East side. Irvington is very progressive and making great strides, why can't the far east side ride on their coat tails to make some changes?

  2. Boston.com has an article from 2010 where they talk about how Interactions moved to Massachusetts in the year prior. http://www.boston.com/business/technology/innoeco/2010/07/interactions_banks_63_million.html The article includes a link back to that Inside Indiana Business press release I linked to earlier, snarkily noting, "Guess this 2006 plan to create 200-plus new jobs in Indiana didn't exactly work out."

  3. I live on the east side and I have read all your comments. a local paper just did an article on Washington square mall with just as many comments and concerns. I am not sure if they are still around, but there was an east side coalition with good intentions to do good things on the east side. And there is a facebook post that called my eastside indy with many old members of the eastside who voice concerns about the east side of the city. We need to come together and not just complain and moan, but come up with actual concrete solutions, because what Dal said is very very true- the eastside could be a goldmine in the right hands. But if anyone is going damn, and change things, it is us eastside residents

  4. Please go back re-read your economics text book and the fine print on the February 2014 CBO report. A minimum wage increase has never resulted in a net job loss...

  5. The GOP at the Statehouse is more interested in PR to keep their majority, than using it to get anything good actually done. The State continues its downward spiral.
