So did you get dragged to see "The Andrews Brothers" with Actors Theatre of Indiana? Did Christopher Cross leave his Symphony on the Prairie concert on a high note? Feel ancient at the "Dynasty and Divinity" show at the IMA?

What did you catch this weekend?

Your thoughts?

  • West Side Story
    Does Franklin count? Saw West Side Story at the historic Artcraft. Fantastic and inexpensive.
  • Church Basement Ladies 2
    I took my mom to opening night of Church Basement Ladies 2: A Second Helping at Beef & Boards on Thursday night. Having missed the B&B production of CBL 1 last year, we weren't sure what to expect. Even without seeing the first one, CBL 2 didn't disappoint. It was both heartwarming and funny. Being descended from Minnesota Norwegian Lutherans, I had moments if eerie discomfort as I felt my grandmother and great aunts were right there in the room.
  • Derek Webb and Sandra McCracken
    Great concert Sunday night at Redeemer Presbyterian Church by Derek Webb, Sandra McCracken, and Kenny Meeks. Wonderful, intimate setting!
  • Indigo Girls
    Saw a terrific Indigo Girls concert at the Palladium Sunday night. Almost two straight hours of great music in front of an enthusiastic crowd.
  • Weekend at the Prairie
    Christopher Cross was a good show! The first half featured music from TV shows from the 50s-70s, so that was fun. Then Chris sang the second half. He did the biggies and mixed in some new stuff. I thought his voice didn't sound very strong for his opener ("Sailing"), but he got better. He closed on "Ride Like the Wind," of course.

  1. This is still my favorite Mexican restaurant in town. What I do love about the new version is it is much quieter than the most recent version. TV's were off, the music wasn't too loud, and the wait staff were not hyperactive like they had been the past few times I had been there. I just wish they would bring back the MOLE for the enchiladas!

  2. Not a bad paper. There is a need for local community news and city government issues. Don't really need the owner's constant national political rants. We all know where they stand by now.

  3. What nice people. Menard should've known better than to team up with the guy who robbed and drove Conseco to ashes. I'm surprised Timothy Durham isn't involved in this.

  4. Hello, I am Maris Peters, currently living in Texas city, USA. I am a widow at the moment with three kids and i was stuck in a financial situation in August 2014 and i needed to refinance and pay my bills. I tried seeking loans from various loan Companies both private and corporate but never with success, and most banks declined my credit. But as God would have it, I was introduced to a Man of God a private loan lender who gave me a loan of $65,000USD and today am a business owner and my kids are doing well at the moment, if you must contact any firm or company with reference to securing a loan without collateral , no credit check, no co signer with just 2% interest rate and better repayment plans and schedule, please contact Mr William David. He doesn’t know that am doing this but am so happy now and i decided to let people know more about him and also i want God to bless him more.You can contact him through his email:

  5. It is beyond me how anyone can think this was a "bad deal" for the state! If they could take the money back then, yes, but they can't! Protections were built in the agreement. Now, if they roll the roads up and take them away, I will agree that it was a bad deal. Otherwise, the only way to have paid for the infrastructure that was badly needed was for the state to issue bonds....that is a four letter synonym for debt folks!!
