For me, it was an out-of-town weekend with D.C. exploration of the Smithsonian, the Library of Congress, the bowels of the Capitol, and a production at Arena Stage that I'll write about soon.

I also worked in a few movie screenings in anticipation of the upcoming Indiana Film Journalists Association Awards voting (which often nearly comes to blows so I need to be prepared).

What about you?

Did you get the the Monument lighting? Catch a recent release at the movies? Visit the Tawara Yusaka show at the Indianapolis Museum of Art? (I hope to go Tuesday.)

How did you experience the arts over Thanksgiving weekend?

  • Vienna Boys
    Fine concert by the Vienna Boys Choir at the Palladium. They sang a really interesting set of pieces from several cultures and historical periods. My only complaint would be that the director/piano accompanist was over-extended by doing both roles, and the timing and piano playing suffered. The singing was very fine indeed.
  • The Divine Sister
    I caught the last night of "The Divine Sister" at Theater on the Square on Mass Ave, a parody of classic nun movies and musicals.

    It wasn't high art by any means. It was ridiculous, ribald and the cast was a riot! They had the audience roaring with laughter the entire time and I enjoyed myself thoroughly.

    I'm looking forward to seeing TOTS' (PG-13) production of Debbie Does Dallas when it opens.

  1. I am a Lyft driver who is a licensed CDL professional driver. ALL Lyft drivers take pride in providing quality service to the Indianapolis and surrounding areas, and we take the safety of our passengers and the public seriously.(passengers are required to put seat belts on when they get in our cars) We do go through background checks, driving records are checked as are the personal cars we drive, (these are OUR private cars we use) Unlike taxi cabs and their drivers Lyft (and yes Uber) provide passengers with a clean car inside and out, a friendly and courteous driver, and who is dressed appropriately and is groomed appropriately. I go so far as to offer mints, candy and/or small bottle of water to the my customers. It's a mutual respect between driver and passenger. With Best Regards

  3. In the first sentance "As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss are build quality & price." need a way to edit

  4. As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss is build quality & price. First none of these places is worth $1100 for a one bedroom. Downtown Carmel or Keystone at the Crossing in Indy. It doesn't matter. All require you to get in your car to get just about anywhere you need to go. I'm in one of the Carmel apartments now where after just 2.5 short years one of the kitchen cabinet doors is crooked and lawn and property maintenance seems to be lacking my old Indianapolis apartment which cost $300 less. This is one of the new star apartments. As they keep building throughout the area "deals" will start popping up creating shoppers. If your property is falling apart after year 3 what will it look like after year 5 or 10??? Why would one stay here if they could move to a new Broad Ripple in 2 to 3 years or another part of the Far Northside?? The complexes aren't going to let the "poor" move in without local permission so that's not that problem, but it the occupancy rate drops suddenly because the "Young" people moved back to Indy then look out.

  5. Why are you so concerned about Ace hardware? I don't understand why anyone goes there! Every time ive gone in the past, they don't have what I need and I end up going to the big box stores. I understand the service aspect and that they try to be helpful but if they are going to survive I think they might need to carry more specialty parts.
