This summer is just flying by …and sadly, it’s coming to an end. If you’re still looking for some outdoor fun, you don’t want to miss out on the IMA’s Movies on the Lawn! There are only 3 Friday nights left where you can sit outside and enjoy an awesome movie with a bunch of strangers. The movies begin at dusk …so bring your blankets, chairs, citronella candles, snacks …and prop those feet up!
This is one of my favorite activities here in Indianapolis during the summer time. They play some great oldies but goodies for all to enjoy! If you haven’t experienced this yet …I’d have to say that it’s a must! Just to hear everyone laughing at a certain part in the movie, or cheering for a really good scene or quote …makes you really feel like you’re a part of something.
Arrive early and enjoy a picnic …or have some drinks! You could also enjoy taking a tour of the museum. You could view the artwork, tour the garden or even walk through The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art & Nature Park: 100 Acres!
Let’s take a look and see what the last 3 movies of the summer will be! Tonight’s showing will be “The Big Sleep” …a black & white, 1946 Warner Brothers Productions film …sure to keep you entertained! Next Friday, the 23rd will be “Rushmore” …featuring Jason Schwartzman and co-written by Owen Wilson. Finally on Friday the 30th …the last movie on the lawn of the summer will be, the one and only …“The Breakfast Club”!! Such a classic …that this screening will more than likely be a packed house! Be sure to get there early enough to grab a good spot!
Tickets are available online until 2pm the day of the showing …but feel free to get on their website and buy your tickets in advance! Tickets can also be purchased at the Welcome Center when arriving. The box office will open at 6pm on the evening of the film.
Happy Summer All! Enjoy it while it lasts!
We know, we know! Interestingist isn’t a word, but we can’t think of a better way to describe the Local Eatery & Pub, which is located at 146th St & Gray Rd. The Local is not your typical dining experience, sourcing ingredients from local farmers (hence the name!), using fresh and organic ingredients when available, and they are the first independently owned “green” restaurant in Indianapolis. If this doesn’t speak to how interesting The Local is, then just take a glimpse at a few items on their menu:
Candied Yam Risotto
dried cranberries and balsamic meringue
Seared Buck Breast
served over rutabaga mash, wilted swiss chard, and a pomegranate duck demi glaze
spicy- sweet pepper relish, black garlic aioli, lettuce and tomato
The Prom Date Burger
add bone marrow or blue cheese mousses (did they say bone marrow ?!)
The staff here at the Legacy dined at The Local the other night and some of our favorites were the hummus plate, their awesome Mac-N-Cheese, the Chicken Panini, and for dessert you can’t beat their house made beignets—they are mouth watering melt in your mouth amazingness!
I won’t even get started on the drink menu, but you can expect some great brews on tap and a fabulous list of cocktails!! (The White Sangria is a must try!!)
