From the looks of the crowd at Penrod on Saturday, every single one of you spent time this weekend at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. So what did you think of this year's fair?

And/or did you get out and sample anything else on the A&E front, such as DK and the ISO at Clowes?

Let me know what you experienced?
  • One of the best afternoons I have spent. Why not make it at least two days?
  • For the 7th year in a row we ventured south for the 10th Annual, Bean Blossom
    Blues Festival. Some excellent talent from Indianapolis, (Gordon Bonham & Gene
    Deer) performed as well as from other states. Probably the best year ever for
    Music, Food and without a doubt the weather. If you enjoy the Blues, camping,
    and jam sessions going on till the wee hours, put this one on your calender for
    2009. August 27 - 29, 2009. It's a party!!!

    Beer & Wine Tastings as well.
  • Penrod was great this year mostly because of the weather. No too hot for a change. I agree with Leslie, it should be two days long.
  • Penrod was perfect - from the beautiful grounds of the IMA to the quality of vendors, to the food and entertainment, and even to the parking lot shuttles! And the weather was gorgeous. A great day! I too wish it went for two days, but one of the vendors told me it was quite a job to prepare and set up with only so many volunteers to make it work. Too bad - since there were so many other performances I would have liked to have seen had it gone another day! Great job!
  • My wife has gone regularly but this is the first time I have gone. Now I see why she has raved for so long. Very well done IMA. We will be back
  • Penrod ROCKED!

    There was something fabulous to look at, hear, smell, taste, and feel at every turn!

    Instead of two days, maybe stay open until dusk.

    In an effort to; avoid making two trips,
    have a chance to relax on the grounds,
    perhaps eliminate being rushed to see everything.
  • It was another beautiful day at Penrod with a variety of wares to purchase, good tunes at the WFYI tent, and great wine from Easley again this year. Two days would make it even better!

  1. By Mr. Lee's own admission, he basically ran pro-bono ads on the billboard. Paying advertisers didn't want ads on a controversial, ugly billboard that turned off customers. At least one of Mr. Lee's free advertisers dropped out early because they found that Mr. Lee's advertising was having negative impact. So Mr. Lee is disingenous to say the city now owes him for lost revenue. Mr. Lee quickly realized his monstrosity had a dim future and is trying to get the city to bail him out. And that's why the billboard came down so quickly.

  2. Merchants Square is back. The small strip center to the south of 116th is 100% leased, McAlister’s is doing well in the outlot building. The former O’Charleys is leased but is going through permitting with the State and the town of Carmel. Mac Grill is closing all of their Indy locations (not just Merchants) and this will allow for a new restaurant concept to backfill both of their locations. As for the north side of 116th a new dinner movie theater and brewery is under construction to fill most of the vacancy left by Hobby Lobby and Old Navy.

  3. Yes it does have an ethics commission which enforce the law which prohibits 12 specific items. google it

  4. Thanks for reading and replying. If you want to see the differentiation for research, speaking and consulting, check out the spreadsheet I linked to at the bottom of the post; it is broken out exactly that way. I can only include so much detail in a blog post before it becomes something other than a blog post.

  5. 1. There is no allegation of corruption, Marty, to imply otherwise if false. 2. Is the "State Rule" a law? I suspect not. 3. Is Mr. Woodruff obligated via an employment agreement (contractual obligation) to not work with the engineering firm? 4. In many states a right to earn a living will trump non-competes and other contractual obligations, does Mr. Woodruff's personal right to earn a living trump any contractual obligations that might or might not be out there. 5. Lawyers in state government routinely go work for law firms they were formally working with in their regulatory actions. You can see a steady stream to firms like B&D from state government. It would be interesting for IBJ to do a review of current lawyers and find out how their past decisions affected the law firms clients. Since there is a buffer between regulated company and the regulator working for a law firm technically is not in violation of ethics but you have to wonder if decisions were made in favor of certain firms and quid pro quo jobs resulted. Start with the DOI in this review. Very interesting.
