  • Chateau Thomas Winery plans to open a new tasting room and gift shop in Fishers. The winery already has tasting rooms at its Plainfield headquarters and in Nashville. The new location is slated to open next month in a strip center along 116th Street near Interstate 69. One of its new neighbors will be the Irish pub Fionn MacCool's.
  • Yuki Sushi and Thai has opened in the lifestyle component of Castleton Square Mall between Johnny Rockets and H&M. The new local restaurant took space vacated by the sandwich shop Spicy Pickle.
  • Rusty Bucket Corner Tavern, a Columbus, Ohio-based chain, has opened its first Indiana location at 1130 W. 86th St. The restaurant offers a wide menu ranging from fish and chips to loaded nachos, pastas to potstickers.
  • Ambrosia Centro is shaping up nicely with new signs and awnings on its new Maryland Street home, and a new wall-mural sign is up for Kilroy's Bar & Grill at 201 S. Meridian St. An earlier post on Ambrosia is here, and a post on Kilroy's is here.

  • Cory - don't forget about Tastings, the new wine bar at the Conrad. The set up is great! Opening day is quickly approaching!
  • ...speaking of Tastings. What's up with their logo? Looks like clip art. Surely an upscale place do better than this.
  • Next door to the Chateau Thomas Winery tasting room in Fishers is a coming soon sign for the Wild Ginger Restaurant. This restaurant is taking over the space formally used by the Spicy Pickle.
  • I heard from a manager at Buffalo Wings and Rings HQ (Cincy) that they have signed with investors to bring six of their restaurants (back) to Indy.
  • [No title]
    Thanks for reminding me, Morgan: What's the opening day? By the way, my original post on Tastings is here:

    (Sorry, I tried to make that a link, but our fancy new system won't allow it.)

    Dave and jtanzer: Thanks for the updates! Keep them coming!




  • The supposed location that Jack in the Box has been eying is now a grassy lot. The sale sign is also still up.
  • Ambrosia was just mediocre
    Went to Ambrosia for lunch this week. Not impressed. Service was slow which is surprising because there were hardly any patrons. Spaghetti was no better than Ragu...
  • Tastings
    Does anyone know if they are charging for tastings at the Conrad? I know and am disappointed Chateau Thomas has started charging for tastings with no compensation with purchase.
  • Thai?
    There wasn't any Thai food at Yuki Sushi at Castleton Mall this evening. I'm not sure where that came from. And, yes, the tastings at Tastings can get quite pricey.

  1. Of what value is selling alcoholic beverages to State Fair patrons when there are many families with children attending. Is this the message we want to give children attending and participating in the Fair, another venue with alooholic consumption onsite. Is this to promote beer and wine production in the state which are great for the breweries and wineries, but where does this end up 10-15 years from now, lots more drinkers for the alcoholic contents. If these drinks are so important, why not remove the alcohol content and the flavor and drink itself similar to soft drinks would be the novelty, not the alcoholic content and its affects on the drinker. There is no social or material benefit from drinking alcoholic beverages, mostly people want to get slightly or highly drunk.

  2. I did;nt know anyone in Indiana could count- WHY did they NOT SAY just HOW this would be enforced? Because it WON;T! NOW- with that said- BIG BROTHER is ALIVE in this Article-why take any comment if it won't appease YOU PEOPLE- that's NOT American- with EVERYTHING you indicated is NOT said-I can see WHY it say's o Comments- YOU are COMMIES- BIG BROTHER and most likely- voted for Obama!

  3. In Europe there are schools for hairdressing but you don't get a license afterwards but you are required to assist in turkey and Italy its 7 years in japan it's 10 years England 2 so these people who assist know how to do hair their not just anybody and if your an owner and you hire someone with no experience then ur an idiot I've known stylist from different countries with no license but they are professional clean and safe they have no license but they have experience a license doesn't mean anything look at all the bad hairdressers in the world that have fried peoples hair okay but they have a license doesn't make them a professional at their job I think they should get rid of it because stateboard robs stylist and owners and they fine you for the dumbest f***ing things oh ur license isn't displayed 100$ oh ur wearing open toe shoes fine, oh there's ONE HAIR IN UR BRUSH that's a fine it's like really? So I think they need to go or ease up on their regulations because their too strict

  4. Exciting times in Carmel.

  5. Twenty years ago when we moved to Indy I was a stay at home mom and knew not very many people.WIBC was my family and friends for the most part. It was informative, civil, and humerous with Dave the KING. Terri, Jeff, Stever, Big Joe, Matt, Pat and Crumie. I loved them all, and they seemed to love each other. I didn't mind Greg Garrison, but I was not a Rush fan. NOW I can't stand Chicks and all their giggly opinions. Tony Katz is to abrasive that early in the morning(or really any time). I will tune in on Saturday morning for the usual fun and priceless information from Pat and Crumie, mornings it will be 90.1
