It was another busy weekend, with Fiesta and Irish Fest dominating downtown and Dance Kaleidoscope and Theatre on the Square kicking off their seasons (I caught TOTS' "Ugg: The Caveman Musical" followed quickly by $3 Bill's latest sketch comedy show Friday night).

That was just the start. Indy Jazz Fest also got rolling with a concert at Clowes. Masterpiece in a Day took care of Saturday at Fountain Square and Oranje kept things going long into the night.

Surely you did something this weekend besides watch the Emmy Awards?

So what did you see, hear or do this weekend?

  • Really enjoyed Irish Fest, especially the toast competition. Took the shuttle from the Omni and was really pleased with how convenient that was.

    Did the gallery walk in Carmel on Saturday and saw a terrific show at Magdalena Gallery - Feather & Brush by Keith Hampton. The Lurie Gallery had beautiful stuff as well.

    Yesterday was The Informant. While I enjoyed it, I didn't find it as engrossing as others seem to. I must say tho - the Mad Men version of the theatre rules at Landmark is amusing.
  • I thought The Informant! was a fun movie -- very entertaining. But no match for the insanity that was last night's episode of Mad Men.
  • I took my daughter to see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs in 3-D. It was enjoyable. I also took her to see the King Tut Exhibit at the Children's Museum and the new Take me there Egypt. Both are first class.
  • Thanks for the tips on the Carmel galleries, Mary. I hope to get there to check them out soon.

  1. If I were a developer I would be looking at the Fountain Square and Fletcher Place neighborhoods instead of Broad Ripple. I would avoid the dysfunctional BRVA with all of their headaches. It's like deciding between a Blackberry or an iPhone 5s smartphone. BR is greatly in need of updates. It has become stale and outdated. Whereas Fountain Square, Fletcher Place and Mass Ave have become the "new" Broad Ripples. Every time I see people on the strip in BR on the weekend I want to ask them, "How is it you are not familiar with Fountain Square or Mass Ave? You have choices and you choose BR?" Long vacant storefronts like the old Scholar's Inn Bake House and ZA, both on prominent corners, hurt the village's image. Many business on the strip could use updated facades. Cigarette butt covered sidewalks and graffiti covered walls don't help either. The whole strip just looks like it needs to be power washed. I know there is more to the BRV than the 700-1100 blocks of Broad Ripple Ave, but that is what people see when they think of BR. It will always be a nice place live, but is quickly becoming a not-so-nice place to visit.

  2. I sure hope so and would gladly join a law suit against them. They flat out rob people and their little punk scam artist telephone losers actually enjoy it. I would love to run into one of them some day!!

  3. Biggest scam ever!! Took 307 out of my bank ac count. Never received a single call! They prey on new small business and flat out rob them! Do not sign up with these thieves. I filed a complaint with the ftc. I suggest doing the same ic they robbed you too.

  4. Woohoo! We're #200!!! Absolutely disgusting. Bring on the congestion. Indianapolis NEEDS it.

  5. So Westfield invested about $30M in developing Grand Park and attendance to date is good enough that local hotel can't meet the demand. Carmel invested $180M in the Palladium - which generates zero hotel demand for its casino acts. Which Mayor made the better decision?
