December 22, 2015

Anxious to get out of the house? Here's an after-Xmas priority list.


Lloyd & Harvey’s Holiday Extravaganza

Frau Heifer and Little Janie’s The Spilling Bee

Two mainstay shows at the White Rabbit Cabaret won’t be taking the holiday season off. The first features the questionably talented title duo hosting a variety show including such guests as Reggie the Puppet, Dan Snodgrass and Alabaster Betty. The latter is a competitive spelling/drinking game with audience participation.

Indy Auto Show

Was the “Dream Car” show at the Indianapolis Museum of Art a bit out there for you? You’ll find more affordable wheels at this annual event, which also includes driving simulators, a chance to play Mustang pinball, and the unveiling of the new Zenos E103 (which, for the record, is not a “Star Wars” robot).
