I’m a big fan of a local Irish bar that is on the Eastside of Indianapolis. It is the actual place where Scott Tolin and I came up with the brainchild of our show, DoItIndy. The old building sits at the corner of 10th Street and Emerson Avenue, only about 10 minutes out of the downtown Indy area (close to home). Great people, good music, daily specials, new appetizers (wings are my favorite), trivia, and more. You can see why Tolin and I like to have meetings there.
A random shot of myself during the investigation of Si Greene's Pub. I still can't believe what they found.
Last spring we found out that a couple of bottles exploded on the shelves for no reason in the middle of the night. Tolin knows a person that works with Paranormal 911 Investigations so we gave them a call. The group came to the bar, looked around, did a small walkthrough and decided to come back. What they found follows below. Nothing could have ever prepared me for that evening. Nothing. Part two and the conclusion will be out later this week.
I don’t know what to think of that night. In all honesty, I do know someone/something/somebody wanted to speak with us. What do you think?
Enjoy. Be urban. Be safe. DoItIndy. Happy Halloween.
The Paranormal 911 team along with Jerry Maple, co-owner of Si Greene's Pub and the DoItIndy crew.
Many thanks go out to Paranormal 911 Investigations for their help, professionalism and guidance during the investigation. The group can currently be seen on the show My Ghost Story (A&E, Biography). The group can be found on Facebook, Twitter and www.paranormal911.com.
Tolin and I are both now growing mustaches in anticipation of Movember 1st!
As some of you may know, I have been growing out my mustache for the past four weeks. This isn’t to be in a play, and I’m not in civil service…it is for charity. Movember. A rather young charity that was started in Australia in 2003 to bring back the mustache and do something good for men and men’s health all over the world. I am proud to announce that DoItIndy has come on board as a sponsor of the Movember Indy 2011 Celebration!
“My commitment is to grow a moustache all November and I am hoping that you will too. All funds raised go to the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LIVESTRONG). The idea behind this charity is to encourage men to grow moustaches in the month of November. The tagline is ‘changing the face of men’s health’; we literally challenge men to change their face by growing a moustache and by doing that they become a walking billboard for men’s health throughout the entire month.” - From http://www.movember.com
Proud to be growing my mustache out for Movember Indy 2011 #moindy2011
People are looking at me funny, they think I am a creeper, chubby porn star, or it is part of a Halloween costume. No way. I’m wearing my mustache loud and proud to raise funds for men’s health and cancer’s that affect men. More specifically funds go for awareness and research towards the horrible disease. Cancer has been in my family and I never want to experience anything like it.
It is invigorating though…sporting a big burly man’s mustache – reminds me of my father in the late 70′s and 80′s. He wore a big walrus stache for years until he became a grandpa. People don’t mess with you as much. And when you are walking on the sidewalk, they step away from you! Haha – I’m a big teddy bear. My newest mustache find – a shirt at Target that says, “A moustache means business.” That saying is really true.
Ready to take the world by storm with my mustache - A moustache means business!
So in week four according to my shirt, I would be somewhere inbetween a general mustache and an undercover brother mustache.
Please help donate to the great cause of men’s health and help DoItindy give back to our local community. You can visit http://www.movember.com or you can go directly to our DoItIndy page at www.mobro.co/doitindy.
