|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.
