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. why oh why does this state continue to elect these you wonder how much was graft out of the 3.8 billion?

  2. i too think this is a great idea. I think the vision and need is there as well. But also agree with Wendy that there may be better location in our city to fulfill this vision and help grow the sports of hockey and figure skating in Indy. Also to help further develop other parts of the city that seem often forgotten. Any of the other 6 townships out side of the three northernmost could benefit greatly from a facility and a vision like this. For a vision that sounds philanthropic, the location is appears more about the money. Would really like to see it elsewhere, but still wish the development the best of luck, as we can always use more ice in the city. As for the Ice growth when they return, if schedules can be coordinated with the Fuel, what could be better than to have high level hockey available to go see every weekend of the season? Good luck with the development and the return of the Ice.

  3. How many parking spaces do they have at Ironworks? Will residents have reserved spaces or will they have to troll for a space among the people that are there at Ruth Chris & Sangiovese?

  4. You do not get speeding ticket first time you speed and this is not first time Mr.Page has speed. One act should not define a man and this one act won't. He got off with a slap on the wrist. I agree with judge no person was injured by his actions. The state was robbed of money by paying too much rent for a building and that money could have been used for social services. The Page family maybe "generous" with their money but for most part all of it is dirty money that he obtained for sources that are not on the upright. Page is the kind of lawyer that gives lawyers a bad name. He paid off this judge like he has many other tine and walked away. Does he still have his license. I believe so. Hire him to get you confiscated drug money back. He will. It will cost you.

  5. I remain amazed at the level of expertise of the average Internet Television Executive. Obviously they have all the answers and know the business inside and out.
