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. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
