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. 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.
