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. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
