For me, the weekend including revisits with "Jersey Boys" (now at the Murat) and "High School Musical" (in a new production at Beef and Boards."

Of course, there was also the Tony Awards on Sunday night...

And you?

What did you see or hear this weekend? Did you get to the Talbot St. Art Fair? Catch Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre?

Your thoughts?

  • Tonys, Fairs
    Sean Hayes did a fantastic job hosting the Tonys, and Green Day brought a lot of energy to the start of the show. Catherine Zeta Jones performed a truly horrendous version of "Send in the Clowns," which makes her win all the more baffling.

    Oh, and Indy Pride Fest and Talbot Street Art Fair were much fun but very hot.
  • IMAF & Handicraft
    Talbott Street might be more well-known, but the best energy in town this weekend had to be at the IMAF & Handicraft Exchange at the Harrison Center. Homegrown and totally free, lots of fun music and great vendors. Now if only there had been a way to drop the temperature by 20 degrees...
  • Wicket World of Croquet
    Rain or Shine, this event is held every second Tuesday in June. Great fun, and this year's theme was Alice in Wonderland. 40 teams of two battle it out on the south lawn of the President Benjamin Harrison Home in a croquet tournament going into its 17th year. Music, food, drink, croquet, silent auction, great fun! And close to IMAF and Talbott Street...lots going on in this historic neighborhood over the weekend!
  • Circle City IN Pride
    Saturday's parade had more units than the 500 Festival parade and was very entertaining. Not only did the festival that followed it grow to 55,000 attendees, but the headliner, Taylor Dayne was wonderful - performing outdoors with high energy out in the heat and humidity for over an hour.
  • Jersey and Zoobilation
    I hit the Jersey Boys Thursday night and got to go backstage and meet the cast! What a treat! Such talent in those young men! I may go back and take my daughter since she knows many of the songs from the show. Also, Zoobilation was a HOT treat!! Even when it started to sprinkle at 10pm and the mass exodus started, the bands kept playing and it cooled off just a bit to become enjoyable. And the food was outstanding. Capital Grille was my favorite along with the fresh oysters from Oceanaire! The shrimp cocktails from St. Elmo was a bit hot for the evening, but always enjoyable!

  1. Liberals do not understand that marriage is not about a law or a right ... it is a rite of religous faith. Liberals want "legal" recognition of their homosexual relationship ... which is OK by me ... but it will never be classified as a marriage because marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman. You can gain / obtain legal recognition / status ... but most people will not acknowledge that 2 people of the same sex are married. It's not really possible as long as marriage is defined as one man and one woman.

  2. That second phrase, "...nor make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunitites of citizens..." is the one. If you can't understand that you lack a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and I can't help you. You're blind with prejudice.

  3. Why do you conservatives always go to the marrying father/daughter, man/animal thing? And why should I keep my sexuality to myself? I see straights kissy facing in public all the time.

  4. I just read the XIV Amendment ... I read where no State shall deprive any person of life, liberty, or property ... nor make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunitites of citizens ... I didn't see anything in it regarding the re-definition of marriage.

  5. I worked for Community Health Network and the reason that senior leadership left is because they were not in agreement with the way the hospital was being ran, how employees were being treated, and most of all how the focus on patient care was nothing more than a poster to stand behind. Hiring these analyst to come out and tell people who have done the job for years that it is all being done wrong now...hint, hint, get rid of employees by calling it "restructuring" is a cheap and easy way out of taking ownership. Indiana is an "at-will" state, so there doesn't have to be a "reason" for dismissal of employment. I have seen former employees that went through this process lose their homes, cars, is very disturbing. The patient's as well have seen less than disireable care. It all comes full circle.
