Hey there, Indy. Each day we get the privilege of kicking off our morning with you. We’re pen pals, friends, buddies — whatever you want to call us (consider this our formal invitation asking you to be ours), and we feel like we’ve really gotten to know one another.
So, we’re testing your knowledge. We’ve put together an Indy-specific game challenging you to get to know us a little more. Bonus points if you send us some of your favorites from the list. The answer key is in The Wrap (but no peeking).
It’s a sunny and 70-degree Circle City day. You’ll find INDYtoday editor (1) at The Garden Table’s patio on Mass Ave enjoying a heaping açaí bowl + garden toast. INDYtoday editor (2) is likely walking her dog in Irvington with a staple Coal Yard latte and Landlocked Baking Company croissant in hand.
5 Seconds of Summer is headlining at TCU Amphitheater at White River State Park on Fri., July 15. INDYtoday editor (3) has front row seats + backstage passes. INDYtoday editor (4) has weekend passes to the WonderRoad Festival in Garfield Park and is patiently awaiting a conversation with “Braiding Sweetgrass” author Robin Wall Kimmerer at the Eiteljorg on Tues., June 14.
Two can keep a secret, but we’re letting you in on ours.
“I live in the suburbs but spend all of my free time downtown. Some people may think it’s difficult to park downtown, but I’ve found it to be pretty simple and I’ve become a pro at parallel parking. If you don’t have the Parkmobile app on your phone — you need it. It makes paying the parking meters so much easier.” – INDYtoday editor (5)
“Ever ventured over to the Southport Antique Mall? Maybe you’ve just driven by it on your way to Long’s Bakery. Well, if you’re a vintage clothing fiend like me, you’ll be happy to discover that the second floor is a treasure trove of retro fits.” – INDYtoday editor (6)
Talk about hair-raising thrills.
The craziest thing you might catch INDYtoday editor (7) trying out in the city is conquering her fear of heights on the climbing walls at North Mass Boulder. Whereas INDYtoday editor (8) may try to one-up her by taking a trip to the clouds with a hot air balloon ride at Conner Prairie.
The Plan Ahead calendar has a hold on us. INDYtoday editor (9) is still hoping to get to a Books, Booze & Brains discussion with Indiana Humanities — anyone free for the upcoming meeting at Upland Brewing Company? INDYtoday editor (10) already has her VIP pass to the Snake Pit during the Indianapolis 500 — are you ready to party?
If the weather plays nice, we’re taking the scenic route. INDYtoday editor (11) won’t say no to a windows-down cruise along College Ave. listening to local artists like Joshua Powell + Okara Imani. INDYtoday editor (12) enjoys taking a stroll at Highland Park for the sunset skyline view.
