For me, it was a wall-to-wall weekend (in a good way), with A&E action ranging from Art vs. Art at the Vogue to the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis--and room for "Mary Poppins" in between.

And you? Did you make it to one of those or to something else over the last few days?

Your thoughts?

  • Rocky Ripple Festival
    Never been before - quaint neighborhood, very small festival, but it was such a nice day to walk along the canal and find this little event tucked away from all the hub-bub. If you're used to the big art fairs, you'd be disappointed, but if you're just out to enjoy a community event on a beautiful fall day, it's nice to stop by.
  • The Producers @ Footlite
    We went to see The Producers at Footlite. A very good production with some very talented people. I think it was best summed up as ambitious, and they did a good job.
  • Glorious battle
    Art vs. Art headlined the Vogue Friday night and it felt like half the town was there. Fun, energetic crowd and really entertaining event made for a wonderful night out for a good cause.
  • The Producers at Footlite
    We saw The Producers at Footlite Musicals in downtown Indy. It had to be the best local production I think I've ever seen. Everything was top-notch. The actors were funny and endearing, the singing was amazing, the costumes were stunning, the sets were interesting. If Footlite can continue at this caliber, there'll be no problem filling Civic's shoes when they head north. Actually, I can't imagine Civic doing such a risque' show. Perhaps they've surpassed Civic's reputation with this production?

  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.
