Double the Music and a beer to boot

Attended the Indy Irish Festival here in Indianapolis; it’s basically a music festival with a few merchandising opportunities thrown in.  The music was good, the merchandise a little spotty but alright.  I don’t want to make it seem like the artists were crap, just not a very wide selection.  For those used to Renaissance Festivals (especially the large, several week affairs), it seemed a little tiny and lackluster from a crafters perspective.

The music, however, was very good and from quite a wide portion of the globe: Louisville, Dublin, Glasgow, parts of Canada…very nice.  This was the only entertainment, though!  There was a small children’s area, but I’m not counting that.  I’m going to send them my information.  They need a juggler at next year’s festival.  And that juggler needs to be me.  There was plenty of opportunity to entertain away from the music stages, so I think it might fly.

And later in the evening, we went to one of my favorite Blues Bars anywhere, The Slippery Noodle Inn.  we arrived a bit early, had a bite to eat and a little bit to drink.  Then we went to the back room and saw a great blues band from Chicago called the Groove.

Off to Cinci tomorrow, might check in on the aquarium there.  Don’t know yet.

  1. As for Cincinnati, check out the Art Museum in Mt. Adams/ Eden Park. It is just East of downtown. And it’s free.
