Notable openings and happenings

Upland Brewery Tasting room has opened just south of Broad Ripple at the southwest corner of College and 49th. I haven't been yet, but I'm sure it won't be long. I've always liked Upland's beers and now I could almost walk to get a growler filled.

Pizzology in Carmel is showing all of the signs of opening soon. Last night there was a bunch of Twitter communication from Neal Brown, owner, regarding a private launch party. He was raising money for Gabe Jordan and his family and offering 2 tickets to the party. It's too bad that I couldn't make it, I wonder how high I would have bid for Neal's food. Pizzology is located at 13190 Hazel Dell Pkwy in Carmel. If you see that it has opened, please tell me. It will likely be my meal that night! NEAL'S FOOD IS THAT GOOD!!!

If you don't know the story behind Gabe Jordan, it is important to note on this blog. Gabe is a partner at the, soon to open, Recess and has been very involved in the success of "Goose The Market." Sadly, Gabe was shot in the back a week ago while walking his dog. The robbers escaped with Gabe's $20 and left him paralyzed from the waist down. Donations can be made on a website devoted to Gabe's story. Please consider donating to his aide.

The Indianapolis Monthly's The Dish newsletter pointed out a bunch of places opening in Fountain Square:
  • Calvin Fletcher's Coffee Company - opened October 16 - not for profit cafe.
  • Imbibe - Opened November 6 - Small-plate bar/cocktail lounge.
  • The Red Lion - opening soon - English Style Pub - Yippee!
  • White Rabbit Cabaret - open in a few months - a vaudeville dance/food experience
  • La Revolucion - opening next year - full service restaurant
Fountain Square is really shaping up to be a dining mecca with local favorites like Naisa, Siam Square, and others.

Martha Hoover's pizza place, Napolese, seems to be coming along. I drove by on Friday and construction was in full force. She really knows breakfast with her Cafe Patachou and Petite Chou concepts. I'm sure her pizza will also be fantastic. Napolese will be located at 49th and Penn.

Any other news of note that you'd like to share?
