Was that you I spoke to at the Penrod Art Fair? Or maybe we ran into each other at one of the two Indianapolis City Ballet benefits? Or perhaps it was at the Indiana Repertory Theatre's season opening production of "Dracula"? Then again, it might have been at Beef & Boards' "Singin' in the Rain" or Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre's "The Drowsy Chaperone." Then again, maybe you were off doing something different--like catching the new exhibition at the IMA, listening to Earth Wind and Fire team up with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, or just taking a close look at a certain statuesque downtowner before she rises to her rightful place on Monument Circle again. Whatever the case, share your weekend arts experiences here.
  • Penrod
    Enjoyed Penrod again. Highlight for me was the bike ride there along the canal from downtown.
  • Busy weekend
    We got lunch (and T-shirts) at the Tipton County Pork Festival, then made it to Indy Hostel in time to see the Punkin Holler Boys and the Spud Puppies reunion. Good stuff. Nice backyard venue. We'll be back.
  • Chinese Festival
    Saw & heard some wonderful performances of Chinese music, dances and Tai Chi at the annual Chinese Festival downtown Military Park.
  • Symphony/Jon McLaughlin
    The Sypmphony on the Prarie with Jon McLaughlin...terrific. Jon is local (Anderson native), very talented, and it appears he has been woodshedding on the piano...his playing has progressed significantly since his earlier incarnations...his friend Jay Roush did the orchestrations and conducting...a wonderful show, and the weather cooperated, unlike at several outdoor shows this summer. A great evening. Thanks Jon!
  • Dracula/Penrod
    'Saw Dracula at the IRT Thurs. - great show with drama, minimal gore, laughs, and suspense - well done by all and worth seeing - it closes 10/1. Penrod seemed smaller all around - less project booths, smaller crowds, less people carrying purchase artwork out. There's so muuch more going on that day than there used to be.
  • Great weekend!
    Made it to Zionsville Fall Festival, then to the Tipton Pork Festival, then wrapped up with Earth, Wind & Fire and the ISO at The Lawn. OMG! What an amazing show! After 40 years, they still have got it going on. Sounded just like my well-loved recordings. Fabulous concert!!
  • Darius Rucker
    Wonderful high energy concert at the Palladium, Friday night.
  • weekend
    we enjoyed the Indy Hostel event, the St Joan of Arc French festival, a Lincoln lecture at the ISM, Ragsdale exhibit at the JCC, DK at Penrod. Didn't enjoy the Colts' game.
  • Penrod & Ballet
    Great time at Penrod - quality vendors and really impressed by the Indiana Ballet Conservatory's dancing. Went to the Indianapolis City Ballet's Gala - wonderful again! Missed seeing Osipova and Vasiliev, but there were some very nice surprises. We're getting spoiled in Indiana! Can't wait 'til next year!

  2. We are a nation of speed. All of our younger lives are filled with deadlines, quotas and bottom lines. We start to ease out of the pressured rat-race when we finally see "retirement." The most enjoyable travel on the planet is passenger rail service. Indy to Chicago does not beat Megabus or Southwest Airlines in speed. Passenger rail however has the best seating, mammoth legroon, seat backs that recline to more than 45 degrees and employers that really want you to return as a customer. Indiana municipalities need to maintain subsidies to support this transportation mode. Losing it is loss for all of us.

  3. Good day! I just want to testify how i got my loan from Mr. Eric Lefkofsky after i applied several times from various loan lenders who claimed to also testify right in this forum,i thought the testimonies where real and i applied but they never gave me loan.
