A Midwestern ‘hello’ from Indianapolis

Throw the ball through the hole and drill Peyton Manning in the head.

Shortly after 10 a.m. today I’ll be hopping on a Greyhound bus for a four-day visit to Indianapolis. Louisville’s been a great jumping-off point for exploring cities in this part of the United States—I’ll be making my third trip down to Nashville in October and, boy, that Chicago city’s something, ain’t it?—and locals here have spoken highly about the Indiana capitol (there’s often envy in their voices).

I’ll be at the Colts-Packers NFL preseason game Friday night and the Red Bull Indianapolis MotoGP Sunday afternoon, visiting breweries, restaurants, and museums throughout my stay. Follow along in real time (Eastern Time Zone, even!) at

And for a sneak peak, read this article on Indianapolis’s bars I wrote for Gridskipper when the city hosted the Final Four last year.

Thanks to Morgan Greenlee and the Indianapolis Convention and Visitors Association for sponsoring my trip.
