Victory Field

Reviewed By Jujulynne - Branson, Missouri

We had a 'date night' from a marriage conference- only the second game of the season unfortunately it was freezing! lol Who knew in April it would be 30 degrees and spitting snow! Regular tickets aren't too expensive but we were stopped by The Cove staff and encouraged to upgrade. We thought why not it's a special date night. We were under the impression that we would get all you want to eat and drink and waited on. That is not accurate- you do get waited on (and our wait staff were very friendly) but you only get a $10 voucher for food and drink. One hot dog is $8.50 so needless to say we gave up our behind home plate tickets to have special treatment and well....all we got was a $40 hot dog. We even had to go to another vendor to get hot cocoa. Also, there is no heat in the bathrooms and no hot water to wash your hands. That's discerning-where to food staff wash their hands? Otherwise, the field is beautiful and very well kept. The staff were friendly. They play fun games during time outs, sound is good and it's a fun date. Due to the weather we had to buy a blanket-whoa it was $45! Too bad normal things can't be normal prices and your penalized

Daredevil Brewing Company

Reviewed By Joseph T - Indianapolis, Indiana

I'm not a big beer drinker but I can tell you even a non beer lover like me could find a beer to like at Daredevil.

The beer I found I liked was CHAR, a smoked English porter. Like I said, in no expert but I really liked this beer.

I counted about 16 different beers on their beer menu.

We also had sandwiches and chili. Grilled cheese with 3 or 4 types of cheese with a nice bread grilled perfectly. The chili was tasty, could have been a little warmer but it was still pretty good. They had a few other items on the menu that looked interesting.

It's an open airy place, maybe 15 or so tables, the stools/chairs were so so to sit in. It's clean and fairly bright as well.

Parking was easy and free as well.

All in all there 12 of us on this night. Service was fine, beer was pretty good and the food was also pretty good.

Indiana Repertory Theatre

Reviewed By SLCDC

Every production I've seen here has been top-notch. I truly enjoy plays by their playwright-in-residence James Still. Such a wonderful cultural experience at affordable prices. If you go on a special night, they might have a post-performance discussion with the cast or a backstage tour or a happy hour.

The factory tour is worth every bit of the ten dollar admission. You delve in to the very heart of motorsports. A guided tour by LUKE EDWARDS is awesome. INADDITION the coffee bar next door is another great place to speed time and just relax with a glass of wine or a cup of coffee.

My two boys (14 and 17) and myself visited during a weekday afternoon and had a blast! The karts are pretty fast, with the track being just slippery enough to slide through the turns. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially when my 14yr old spun out. Definitely a fun way to spend an afternoon.. and lunch at their restaurant 1911 was great too!

Great tour. Definitely worth the cost of admission. As a big packer fan it was interesting seeing an indoor stadium with a retractable roof.

Wonderful selection of fine art with many of the masters on display. Spent over two hours just on the second floor. Enjoyed the cafe and the wonderful gift shop as well as the visit to the Lilly house. A very respectable showing for a city the size of Indianapolis. Well done!

Indiana War Memorial

A tribute to Indiana war veterans, from World War I to the Vietnam War.

Reviewed By Nate080411 - Nashua, New Hampshire

We didn't have the chance to go inside this memorial, but we did take the time to walk to it and walk around it. The memorial is very impressive from the outside and has some cool unique elements to it. When you walk up the stairs you get a nice view from either side of the memorial. If you get the chance to go inside I would say you should, but if you can't it is worth the visit to walk around the outside.
