Wow. Three days ago I walked into Super Bowl Village and was just awestruck. Georgia Street, the Indiana Convention Center, The Huddle, Monument Circle were all amazing. Completely fantastic.
The city, Super Bowl Host Committee, Volunteers, workers, law enforcement and more welcomed the world to the doorsteps of Indianapolis. You did a fantastic job. For the last couple of days, I took a series of short, uncut, raw videos from my FLIPcam that the cool dudes at Candidio gave me. Some of the coolest things I found along the way. Enjoy Indianapolis. Enjoy world.

This device makes my work and productivity SO much easier. I never thought I would use it as much as I do.
I have had a friend tell me for years when I finally go with an Apple product (other than my 80GB iPod classic) that I will never want to go with a PC product again. My friend Jason might have been right on. My dad was recently going on about the iPad and he wanted to check them out. We went to the Apple Store in Keystone on December 18th for him to make his purchase – I was just along for moral support. As my dad kept talking with the salesman about the iPad and all the cool stuff it had – my uber geek fanboy mind started racing. I want an iPad!!!
So…after some thought and a very nice zero percent financing for one year – I purchased my first BIG apple product. Wow. Rad. Amazing. Unreal. Can I tell you that it has really almost changed my life?! I love it. I use it everyday. I want to get an iPhone now (well I already wanted that, but more now). I have a small Dell netbook that used to go everywhere with me, no longer! My iPad makes the netbook seem bulky, slow and not good enough anymore for a presentation on the go. This device is so streamline, small and can connect very easily to the internet.
I’m already using this for grad school, the calendar, presentations, watch movies , check-in on Foursquare and SO much more. Thank you Apple. My next step will be to get an iPhone when my cell contract is up. I can’t wait. I’ve been done with my Blackberry since about one month after I got it. Jason People if you read this…my next computer will be an Apple.
My favorite features: FACETIME (This is SO much better than Skype), two sides camera, fast dual core processor, magnetic cover.
This is one of my favorite times of the year – Devour Downtown. The local restaurant showcase happens every summer and winter to give Indianapolis a flavor of the best food in the urban city.
$30 gets you a GREAT meal at some of the best restaurants in Indianapolis. Even better – a few are 2 for $30 and available at lunch! DoItIndy is a proud sponsor for the second time of Devour Downtown Indianapolis! Doesn’t get any better than this…
Director KC and I ate some wonderful food from The Oceanaire last August.
I recently had the opportunity to be a judge of the Devour Downtown Signature Drink competition. Awesome. This was my second time to help choose what fine beverage you can try at every DD restaurant! Who wouldn’t want to do this, right? It was fun to try some fantastic mixes that the local bartenders came up with! Many thanks to Grey Goose Vodka, 1800 Tequilla and Canadian Club Whiskey for being the gracious drink sponsors this winter. All the drinks were comprised of one of the three spirits along with mixers. The final result=they all were delicious.
I don’t want to give away the winner just yet! But…my favorite is a very smooth Grey Goose drink that is PERFECT for the wintertime. I’m going to have another for sure.

Nothing but the best for the Signature Drink of Devour Downtown Winter 2012!
Devour Downtown gives me the opportunity to visit some of the best restaurants that urban Indy has to offer (I normally would never be able to afford some of these too)! My list to date includes: Morton’s, Fogo de Chao, Palomino, 14 West, Smokehouse on Shelby, St. Elmo, The Oceanaire, Creation Cafe and Scotty’s Brewhouse. I’m already excited to try some new editions for this go-around! Remember – every winter and summer this culinary treat is around for two weeks. Here is a link to the Devour Downtown Winterfest 2012 menus: www.devourdowntown.org/winterfest/index.htm
Thanks again to Devour Downtown and National Wine & Spirits for the great competition.
Eat Up Indy! Be urban. Have fun…try something new. $30=a great time in the city. I guarantee you’ll eat well Indianapolis!
