stuff to do in indy this weekend

  • First there is the Vintage Indiana Wine Fest. Always wonderful performers plus first rate local wineries sharing their wares.

  • Then in Irvington celebrate the annual Spring Event. From their press release:

Drawing on the amenities of Ellenberger Park and the bustling Washington Street corridor, the daylong festival focuses on the neighborhood's history and vitality, as well as celebrates the community's cultural offerings and presence as a leader in innovative neighborhood economic development projects.

Celebrate Irvington builds on Irvington's already well-known events, including the annual Halloween Festival, the Benton House Home Tour, and the summer Farmer's Market. Celebrate Irvington gives neighborhood residents, and visitors, the opportunity to enjoy the community's genteel charm.

  • While your in Irvington check out my friend Angela's new used and rare bookstore, Book Mama's. It's located at 9 S. Johnson Avenue, Indianapolis, IN 46219. That's right across the street from the wonderful coffee house Lazy Daze (in the old Irvington Theatre bldg.) From Angela's press release:

He has written and contributed to many books, among which are Holy Silence: the Gift of Quaker Spirituality and Mind the Light: Learning to See with Spiritual Eyes.
On this Sunday, June 8, BOOKMAMAS will have a table at the Irvington Farmers Market from 12:45-3 p.m. Gideon Wainwright will be performing there at 1:30 p.m.

  • This Saturday and Sunday is the annual Woodruff Flea Market. From their website:
