- Easter Brunch @ Charbonos
Do not RSVP if you are not certain you can/will attend. This is a busy day for restaurants and they need their seats for actual customers. Join me for the Easter buffet at Charbonos... it's owned by the Cunningham Group, so you know it's good. I was quoted a price of $25 to $30 per person. As far as I know, you can also order off their regular menu. Their web site is https://www.charbonos.com/ Find Yelp reviews here https://www.yelp.com/biz/charbonos-avon
- SOLD OUT Chew on This: What Divides Us? - Humanities Discussion & Dinner @ Divvy
SOLD OUT ++ TICKETED EVENT +++ PLEASE READ CAREFULLY +++ YOU MUST OBTAIN YOUR OWN TICKET+++ If interested, act fast. At this point only 15 tickets remain. I attended one of these dinners last year. Food was fabulous and the discussion interesting and eye-opening. Get your tickets at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/chew-on-this-what-divides-us-tickets-55705641072 Description: Sometimes it feels as if we’re coming apart at the seams. The conclusion drawn from the near-constant polling, media commentary and academic analysis of the last few years is that Americans are polarized—divided along geographic lines or by race, by generation or by socio-economic status. Historians Kevin Kruse and Julian E. Zelizer say it all goes back to 1974, when Watergate, the end of the Vietnam War and anti-busing riots were among the many crises that rocked America. Journalist Bill Bishop, working from reams of sociological and political science data, says we started to sort ourselves into camps in 1965—between June and October, to be exact. Others go back to the 1920 census, the first to show that the majority of Americans lived in cities and towns, rather than rural areas. So what’s true? Are we more divided than ever before? If so, why is that? What, exactly, divides us? We’ll dig into these and similar questions on Tuesday, April 23 during a special INseparable-themed Chew On This. Sign up for one of 6 locations around the state, where you’ll share a meal and civil yet fun in-depth conversation with other curious Hoosiers. Each table will be led by an expert facilitator, someone who brings special insight into why we do or don’t manage to get along with one another. Your ticket price includes meal and an unforgettably rich experience. Guided conversation by Rima Shahid, executive director of Women4Change Indiana (divvy | Carmel) TICKET INFORMATION Conversations will take place at different locations around Indiana. When selecting your ticket, please pay careful attention to the restaurant cuisine, your dietary preferences/restrictions (vegetarian, vegan, etc.), as well as your preferred facilitator. Your ticket will serve as your entrance to the restaurant. Your ticket price includes a meal, non-alcoholic drink, and tax and tip at one of the locations.

Possibly your one and only chance to see me in full traditional German garb... Sigi Frühlingfest, Just as last year, this “Spring Fest” will crescendo at 5pm with the “Maibaumaufstellen”–the raising of the May Pole. Family friendly. Food either before 5pm and after raising the May Pole. Activities include: German Auto Show, Euchre Tournament, GAK Closet, Live Music and Dancing, and lots of family fun & games. 5pm raising the MAYPOLE!!! Plan on coming out to the Edelweiss Biergarten on the 27th of April, more at indianapolisgak.com Mai="May"; Baum="tree" (or "pole" in this context); auf=a preposition, like the English " of " in this compound word; stellen="raising" So "Maibaumaufstellen"=therefore means "The raising of the May Pole", a time-honored tradition in Germany and throughout Europe dating to ancient times, celebrating spring. The May Pole raising marks the exact half way point between the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice (traditionally, May 1st/2nd--"May Day"), and in bier culture of today, it marks the opening of the Biergarten for the Summer Season! Come join us for this Celebration as we hoist our 24 foot Maibaum over the biergarten.
