Around Indy: They Might Be Giants at The Vogue

I have spent the past six years avoiding the Broad Ripple strip during the evening. Don’t get me wrong, I love Broad Ripple as a whole. Tons of unique shops, and fantastic restaurants for when you need a break. But the meat market that Broad Ripple turns into once the sun goes


Around Indy: Cards Against Humanity with Girls Pint Out

I have to admit, I was nervous when I got the Facebook invite from Girls Pint Out, an all female craft beer appreciation group,  to play Cards Against Humanity at New Day Meadery in Fountain Square. I love Cards Against Humanity as much as the next awful person, but playing in public?

Pure Geekery Paints the Town Red: Arsenal Game Room

For those of you who don’t know, Claire and I are both really into the Shop Local movement. We love the kind of environment and service you can only really get in a locally owned shop. So when our friend and teammate AdRock posted about Arsenal Game Room  on our Facebook page we


In Pictures: Naptown Roller Girls are Looking for Love in Alderaan Places

I had planned on getting you guys some awesome shots at the Naptown Roller Girls “Looking for Love in Alderaan Places” bout this past Saturday. However, when I got there, I found I had forgotten to put an SD card in my DSLR. This left me with my iPhone (and having my iPhone camera
