    I'll be in Indianapolis,IN this week and I'd like to know of any live music, beer joints, car related places or whatever that I should see. I'll be there from Tues March 20 to Sun March 25. Thanks for any help. I don't want to sit in the hotel in my off time. Rather get out and see something. Brian

    what hotel you staying at, I just moved from Indianapolis after 7 years so I can hook you up with quite a few spots depending on what you want to do.
    If staying down town, check out Slippery Noodle (live bands every night and the oldest bar in Indy) and maybe Piano Bar. Theres Tiki Bobs and some other bar right next to it if you're into clubbin' it up and dumb college (IUPUI) girls. Rock Bottom Brewery and Alcatraz brewery for micro brews, Champs for sports bar. NCAA hall of fame is downtown if you like sports. too bad it isnt later in the year, there a great minor league stadium thats always a good time. Red Garter is downtown, dancing ladies. PT's is better but its about 15 minutes from downtown. Dont know what there is to see at the Speedway, if theres a museum or not. If youve got a rental car head down Meridian south of 465 loop and you should find some cruise spots. all the car action is down there.
    Let me know what side of town or name of hotel youre staying at and I can help out more.
    You could stop by the house I still own and do wome wrenching on the car I left behind until I can get it moved over here.

    I'm being put up at the Marriott downtown. I'm going to the speedway with the group from work. I'll have a rental car so I can go pretty much anywhere. Thanks for helping. Brian

    you at least need to come over and sign my hamb car in the garage! I'm just outside Indy on the east side at Mt. Comfort and I-70. Get in touch with GMC Bubba too. I think they do something during the week. Lots of shops worth seeing on the west side if you have time during the day.

    My shop is in Brownsburg, about 8 miles out from the 465 loop. You are welcome to come and visit at any time. We are usually here into the evening if that works for you. Most of the front line nitro teams are out here too and I can hook you up with them.
    The Indianapolis Motor Speedway museum is definitely worth a look, lots of past race winners on display.

    Guiness and Shepard's pie at the Claddah pub, within walking distance of the Marriott.

    Union Jack's over by the speedway has the best racing decor of any restaurant in town.

    And the speedway museum inside the track is a must-see even if you don't give a damn about open wheel racing. If you get decent weather, take a tour bus around the racing surface. They're open every day except christmas.
