dinner group

Our entire marketing group planned to go out to dinner tonight. A restaurant in Downtown Disney was chosen. After driving and looking for parking for over an hour, we ended up finding our own restaurant. Glad we had a fun group to visit with!

new player

After a couple years of having a broken turntable, I decided it was time for John to get a new one. I pursued getting the old one fixed for Christmas, but they couldn’t replace the motor. So John picked this one out, from 1977. It is great to hear that warm vinyl sound again.

Superbowl Village

The Superbowl Village festivities in downtown Indianapolis are quite amazing. It sounds like this week has been like no superbowl before, and I am so proud of Indianapolis to do such a great job. Amazing weather aside (60 degrees in February!), Indianapolis has closed streets, created pedestrian zones, and rolled out the red carpet for the big game. From top left to right,

  1. Superbowl Experience and people flying down the zipline.
  2. Zooming by St. John the Evangelist Church downtown.
  3. Giants vs Patriots. Excellent signage, design and branding is found throughout the village.
  4. Downtown streets are renamed after NFL teams. Georgia Street, the main village area, of course, belongs to the Colts.
  5. Zipline
  6. Me standing on AstroTurf.
  7. More great signage.
  8. Monument Circle, the heart of downtown Indianapolis with giant XLVI.
  9. The Lombardi Trophy on the JW Marriott
  10. Lots of people on Maryland Street under the zipline.
  11. Browns Street (in honor of my husband!)
  12. Bands play at two different stages throughout the week.
  13. Reporters and celebrities are here to talk about the game.
  14. Football fields are outside with games for the kids.
  15. XLVI at the Westin
  16. Lots of people are out to enjoy the beautiful weather on Friday afternoon.
