For me, the weekend included escorting out-of-towners to the Indianapolis Museum of Art for a look at the contemporary design galleries and a picnic at 100 Acres. Besides that, my arts experiences were limited to catching up on episodes of "Veep" and reading a collection of book review columns by Nick Hornby.

What about you?

Did you get to the 500 Festival parade or any of the race-related concerts? Catch a movie at the multiplex or a play at the Phoenix or Theatre on the Square?

The space is all yours to share your arts experiences. Go...

    another memorable concert on friday night
  • Turn One!
    I went to the Indianapolis 500 and just took it all in. My friends (both children and adult) were amazed how much better it was in person! We visited the museum, watched the race,everything. Make the trip and you'll be glad you did.
  • Picnic at 100 Acres
    We also enjoyed a picnic at 100 acres. We went on Monday and the park was packed--which was wonderful to see. As a family with younger kids, it was great to have somewhere to introduce them to art without having to keep yelling at them to keep their hands in their pockets. They were already asking us when we could come back as we were leaving the parking lot.

  1. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

  2. If you only knew....

  3. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.

  4. The facts contained in your post make your position so much more credible than those based on sheer emotion. Thanks for enlightening us.

  5. Please consider a couple of economic realities: First, retail is more consolidated now than it was when malls like this were built. There used to be many department stores. Now, in essence, there is one--Macy's. Right off, you've eliminated the need for multiple anchor stores in malls. And in-line retailers have consolidated or folded or have stopped building new stores because so much of their business is now online. The Limited, for example, Next, malls are closing all over the country, even some of the former gems are now derelict.Times change. And finally, as the income level of any particular area declines, so do the retail offerings. Sad, but true.
