  • Broad RippleBroad Ripple Ice Cream Station, or BRICS, is scheduled to open this spring in the former Whistle Stop Deli location on the Monon Trail, at 901 E. 64th St. The locally owned ice cream shop will feature 40 hand-dipped flavors, homemade waffle cones, malts, shakes and a selection of soups and sandwiches. The owners, Nonie and David Vonnegut-Gabovitch and Jennifer and David DuBow, plan to add Wi-Fi, an indoor fireplace and a station for Monon Trail users to fill water bottles.
  • Flatwater Restaurant on the Canal has opened in the former Canal Point Grill space at 832 Westfield Boulevard. The menu features several fish options, small plates like tacos and sliders and appetizers ranging from a Sweet and Spicy Asian Shrimp Saute to Best of the Wurst, an assortment of local meats.The owner is Michael Yount.
  • Scotty’s Thr3e Wise Men Brewing Company, a microbrewery and tasting room, is planned for the former Sunflower Market space at 1021 Broad Ripple Ave. Owner Scott Wise also expects the building to centralize corporate operations for Scotty's Brewhouse, including a commissary kitchen and business operations. IBJ first reported on the plans in February.
  • Monon Food Co., a homegrown fast-casual restaurant, is slated to open next to Plump's Last Shot in Broad Ripple, as we first reported in February. The restaurant will take the former home of Hoghead's BBQ at 6420 Cornell Ave. Owner Tim Williams said the restaurant will serve "healthy comfort food" sourced locally whenever possible.

  • Yes!
    Flatwater has $1 drinks all day Friday. Right Mike?
  • Flatwater Fresh
    A couple was in my office yesterday and said they had dined at Flatwater and was on their way there again for dinner. They said the food was fresh and everything made there was from scratch.
  • Scottys
    Scotty's must have gotten a hell of a deal on rent to move their brewing and corporate ops to such a prime retail location in BR.
  • Scotty's
    Scotty's didn't have a brewery before, so this is new, as far as the general operations go, it's my understanding that it's currently in a large space above his garage. So this new space will give them a more formal office.
  • Also in Broad Ripple
    I don't make it to BR often, but every time I've been there I've noticed that Bleecker Street bar on Guilford seems closed (and dusty), yet it remains furnished and I have never seen a "for lease" sign. Does anyone know what the status on this place is?
  • Bleecker Street
    I'm curious about Bleecker Street as well. I vaguely remember it being open randomly a few weeks ago, but no one was inside.

    What is their story?

  1. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

  2. If you only knew....

  3. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.

  4. The facts contained in your post make your position so much more credible than those based on sheer emotion. Thanks for enlightening us.

  5. Please consider a couple of economic realities: First, retail is more consolidated now than it was when malls like this were built. There used to be many department stores. Now, in essence, there is one--Macy's. Right off, you've eliminated the need for multiple anchor stores in malls. And in-line retailers have consolidated or folded or have stopped building new stores because so much of their business is now online. The Limited, for example, Next, malls are closing all over the country, even some of the former gems are now derelict.Times change. And finally, as the income level of any particular area declines, so do the retail offerings. Sad, but true.
