Around Indy: Culinary Collage

At Pure Geekery, we tend to focus on the purely fun aspects of Indianapolis life. Places like bookstores, gaming cafes, and museums. But it’s important to focus on those working to make Indianapolis a better place as well, which is where Fletcher Place Community Center comes in. Fletcher Place is a faith-based


Be a Tourist.

One of my major pet peeves is when people act like Indianapolis has nothing to offer. Implying it’s just a boring city in the middle of a corn field (which hello, fresh food). The statement usually comes after someone has come back from vacationing in another city. Statements like “Portland is so


Indianapolis Literary Pub Crawl

Maybe it’s just me, but drinking and reading seem to go really well together. Whiskey with Hemingway and Twain. Merlot with Anne Rice. Craft beer with Hornsby.

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?


Backyard Toursim: Indianapolis Food
