  • Stargazing (Kelly Rowland! Babyface!) at the Circle City Classic parade downtown Saturday morning.
  • Celebrating fall with a sample of cinnamon cider at the Noblesville Brewfest Saturday afternoon.
  • Cooing over the glassware at Punch Bowl Social‘s grand-opening party tomorrow.

#nationalpunchday = punch flights all day. Because nothing says “Tuesday” like getting punched starting at 11:00 a.m.

  • Biking to urban farms during the IndyGrown Harvest Ride Saturday, with a farm-to-fork dinner waiting at the end of the route.
  • Working in one last round of golf at Brickyard Crossing before the Speedway course closes for aeration until late fall.
  • Staking out a spot on the canal’s north basin to watch the IUPUI Regatta, one of the best uses of the canal.

#TheGr8Regatta is ONE MONTH away! Mark your calendar for September 24th!
