Great Harvest Food Pantry gathers and prepares food for more than 500 families from the Indianapolis area every month. The volunteer staff members stock an inventory of donated items and purchase additional food from a local food bank. When families arrive seeking food, they can sign in and move through the pantry with a volunteer, selecting the produce and grocery items they need. The volunteers help carry bags and boxes to clients' vehicles and see them off. Teams also conduct food drives and community giveaways around the city, and deliver food to people who cannot leave their homes or are living on the streets. Great Harvest Food Pantry does not turn away any families who request food, and serves people from a variety of economic and linguistic backgrounds.
Fitness Now's founder Tiffany Wheatley draws from more than 12 years of professional fitness experience and extensive certification to customize each workout and regimen to each customer's individual needs. Sophisticated cardio and strength equipment hone and tone muscles, while certified personal trainers and nutritionists fashion individual exercise and diet packages. Guests sweat to glory in the supportive atmosphere of group classes such as spin sessions or Pilates and yoga courses, which aim to unite mind and body during core-boosting workouts, like doing sit-ups in a sensory-depravation tank.
BounceSpot's pint-sized citizens romp through a colorful panorama of inflatable entertainment. With feet clad in socks or stuffed into willing sock puppets, kids can frolic through a labyrinth of inflatable moonwalks, slides, and obstacle courses. At the end of each day, the BounceSpot staff sanitizes every inch of the inflatable obstacle courses and ticket-arcade machines that span the 11,000-square-foot play space. These meticulous scrub-downs are part of BounceSpot’s policy to foster a safe, cheerful environment. Staffers also supervise bounce houses to ensure kids play gently and haven’t smuggled in performance-enhancing pogo sticks.
As kids clamber across colorful inflatables, parents can lounge at nearby tables and cruise complimentary WiFi or stop by the concession stand for pizza and ice cream.
Nominated as one of Metromix's best bars in 2011, Taps & Dolls matches a medley of appetizers, sandwiches, and pizza with more than 44 draft beers, including craft brews and big-brewery ales. As bartenders loosen the taps, a line of flickering flat-screen TVs above the bar lets patrons cheer on their favorite sports teams or bellicose cartoon animals while they quaff PBR or Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy. In addition to the 2-D entertainment, pool tables and arcade games—including Golden Tee and Silver Strike Bowling —keep fingers busy in between bites of chicken wings or fries, and a dance floor pulses with the beats of an all-request DJ Thursday–Saturday.
