A Subsidiary of Provocate.org

Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Nov. 14: An Intimate Taste of Mass. Ave.

A chance to sample food from three of the city's finest restaurants, and to talk to the architects who helped make these such appealing spaces

When: Monday Nov. 14 5:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Where: Elements (415 N. Alabama St.), The Scholars Inn Gourmet Café & Wine Bar (725 Mass Ave.); R Bistro (888 Mass Ave.)

Explore the sights, sounds, and tastes of Massachusetts Avenue, the city's uniquely creative new cultural district. Enjoy a progressive meal presented by three Indianapolis restaurants and the architects who designed them—Elements by Demerly Architects; The Scholars Inn Gourmet Café & Wine Bar by Rowland Design Inc.; and R Bistro by J. W. McQuiston Architecture. As you sample one course at each restaurant, engage in lively discussions with the owners and architects about creative transformations that are enriching Massachusetts Avenue. Learn how businesses can creatively move into older neighborhoods. Discuss what matters to you as Indianapolis creates and redefines urban neighborhoods and districts, making them wonderful places to stay.

(Wish I would have known about this event before agreeing to talk about the UN at the University of Indianapolis that evening! Part of what makes all three restaurants so successful is the creative use of space.)

$30 includes appetizers and dessert. Free soft drinks and water. Cash bar. Registration is limited to 120 people. Advance registrations are required by November 7, 2005. For questions and reservations contact Lee Borthwick at 317-822-9299 or email lee@bomaindy.org.
