|There were lots of free samples from the menu of the new restaurant opening in the Propylaeum.|
|There was also free beer and wine.|
|The entire house was open to explore, so we did. We didn't realize that some of the rooms are actually available to rent for |
short stays (like an Inn).
|Other rooms displayed historic photos about the Women's Suffrage movement.|
|The Propylaeum Club was started in 1888 by May Wright Sewall to mobilize women to play larger roles in society.|
|Another rentable room.|
|Next we headed to the Big Green Food Con at the nearby Harrison Center.|
|There was some amazing art that was not related to food. (Very unexpectedly, we happened to meet the artist featured here at |
our last stop of the evening.)
|Most everything else had to do with educating people on healthy, local, organic food. These three salad samples, as well as |
the herb-infused water, were delightful.
|This display was to educate people on the water and other resources required to produce different types of food. Another |
room had a small farmers market, though we failed to get any photos of that.
|We love to do First Friday with our friend, Mark and Annette. Here they are at our next stop, the Indiana Landmarks Foundation.|
|Their theme this time was French Impressionism. They featured the work of several local artists who had gone to Provence |
and did paintings en plein air (outdoors).
|We stopped briefly at McGowan Hall at the Knights of Columbus because we saw they had|
live music going on.
|They also had several craft booths to browse.|
|On our way back home we decided to stop at a new place called Reclamation for drinks.|
|We all loved the old safe door at the entrance.|
|The old cash register was pretty cool too.|
|They have a nice selection of games for customers to play while they are hanging out, which is a nice touch.|
|This place had a great old-timey vibe that we all enjoyed.|
|There was even a gangster gambling scene under the floor at the entrance.|
|The back patio was the real winner of the place, though. It reminded us of New Orleans. This is where we met the artist of |
the mandala-like pieces we saw at the Harrison Center.
