Visit 100 Acres? Catch the Indian Market?

This time, the weekend took me to Brown County for a why-don't-I-do-this-more-often trek that included "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee" at Brown County Playhouse, a visit to the T.C. Steele studios, and an encounter with the young Elvis. More on all in an upcoming IBJ column.

So what did you do?

Brave the head to get to the IMA's 100 Acres park? (Read my 100 thoughts--and take a video tour--here.) Catch the final week of "Speech and Debate" at the Phoenix? Make time for the Eiteljorg's Indian Market and Festival? See and hear a concert?

Your thoughts on any of these...or whatever else you did?

(Side note: If you like to plan ahead, time is running out to enter to win tickets to "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum." Info here.)

  • TOTS
    I was fortunate enough to get out to Theatre on the Square to see The Great American Trailer Park Musical. LOVED it. I don't think I stopped laughing for more than 2 minutes at a time. Irreverent and hilarious. I'd see it again just to memorize all the insults Betty directs at a man who doesn't know a "lady" when he sees one! If you like rednecks, strippers, dumb blondes, goodwill fashion, the F bomb and a VERY entertaining cast and script...then, you would LOVE this show which has been extended through most of July due to popular demand.

    One warning....TOTS was HOT! I'm generally cold natured; was wearing short sleeves and capris, fanning myself with the playbill and STILL sweating like know!
  • N.I.T.E. Ride
    Another beautiful N.I.T.E. Ride - and still the best way to see our city: 20 miles, at night, from a bike. Tons of riders this year, but still a very well planned and executed event. Big shout out to all the police support, and the cheerleaders up late along the route. The spin through IMA gave a sneak peek of 100 Acres. After seeing that, and reading the 100 things, I'm planning to visit next weekend!
  • Nashville Brewery
    Took my daughter/son-in-law to Nashville. Went into Deep Woods Brewery, had great big pretzel and my kids thought the beer was good.

    Nice atmosphere and they said they have musicians playing on weekends. Nice place to relax from window shopping.
  • Indian Market
    We braved the Sunday heat and humidity to check out the Eiteljorg's Indian Market. Saw some interesting cultural presentations and dancing and managed to check a whole bunch of birthday gifts off our list. As always, the artists are so friendly and helpful. The only thing I wish was that there had been more painting/visual art and less silver jewelry.

  1. So much for Eric Holder's conversation about race. If white people have got something to say, they get sued over it. Bottom line: white people have un-freer speech than others as a consequence of the misnamed "Civil rights laws."

  2. I agree, having seen three shows, that I was less than wowed. Disappointing!!

  3. Start drilling, start fracking, and start using our own energy. Other states have enriched their citizens and nearly elminated unemployment by using these resources that are on private land. If you are against the 'low prices' of discount stores, the best way to allow shoppers more choice is to empower them with better earnings. NOT through manipulated gov mandated min wage hikes, but better jobs and higher competitive pay. This would be direct result of using our own energy resources, yet Obama knows that Americans who arent dependent of gov welfare are much less likely to vote Dem, so he looks for ways to ensure America's decline and keep its citizens dependent of gov.

  4. Say It Loud, I'm Black and Ashamed: It's too bad that with certain "black" entertainment events, it seems violence and thuggery follows and the collateral damage that it leaves behinds continues to be a strain on the city in terms of people getting hurt, killed or becoming victims of crimes and/or stretching city resources. I remember shopping in the Meadows area years ago until violence and crime ended make most of the business pack you and leave as did with Lafayette Square and Washington Square. Over the past 10 to 12 years, I remember going to the Indiana Black Expo Soul Picnic in Washington Park. Violence, gang fights and homicides ended that. My great grandmother still bears the scares on her leg from when she was trampled by a group of thugs running from gun fire from a rival gang. With hundreds of police offices downtown still multiple shootings, people getting shot downtown during Black Expo. A number of people getting shots or murdered at black clubs around the city like Club Six on the west side, The Industry downtown, Jamal Tinsley's shot out in front of the Conrad, multiple fights and shootings at the skating rinks, shootings at Circle Center Mall and shooting and robberies and car jackings at Lafayette Mall. Shootings and gang violence and the State Fair. I can go on and on and on. Now Broad Ripple. (Shaking head side to side) Say It Loud, I'm Black and I'm Ashamed.

  5. Ballard Administration. Too funny. This is the least fiscally responsive administration I have ever seen. One thing this article failed to mention, is that the Hoosier State line delivers rail cars to the Amtrak Beech Grove maintenance facility for refurbishment. That's an economic development issue. And the jobs there are high-paying. That alone is worth the City's investment.
