Broad Ripple Gazette, vol. 5 no. 22

first published in the Broad Ripple Gazette


Senator Obama
Indiana State Fair Grounds
Wednesday, October 8, 2008

I debated about whether to write about this, I don’t want anyone to think that I (or the Gazette) am endorsing anyone. Ever since Indiana moved to the "swing state" column last month we've all been getting hit hard with ads and such. It was pretty amazing that a presidential candidate spoke in our back yard (pretty close, anyway). No matter what your political views are, it is pretty darn amazing to be standing just 30 feet from a presidential candidate.

My biggest goose-bumpy moment was when 12,000 of us recited the Pledge of Allegiance.

As exciting as this presidential election is, don't forget to pay attention to the local races. Your governor, city council members, school board members, assessors and township leaders have an awful big impact on your day-to-day life.

Frank Glover Quartet
The Jazz Kitchen

Frank Glover is a legendary saxophone player – he even has his own Wikipedia page, and a Monday night tradition at the Jazz Kitchen. Monday’s also feature the fabulous “8 before 8” dinner specials. The night I was there the $8 specials sounded great but I opted for the amazing eggplant tower off of the regular menu, it seriously rocked.

The music is lovely and the food is amazing. Hanging out at the Jazz Kitchen is a great way to spend Monday night.
