  • 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. 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!!
