Bella Pizzeria spins its New York–style dough discs from more than 27 different topping options, including five types of cheese. Cast your vote for thin crust or deep dish by the slice ($2.85–$5), or gear up for heated fan-club presidential campaigns by sharing the spoils of a whole pizza ($11.99–$25.99). Bella Pizzeria's menu also furnishes plates with calzones ($5.79), subs ($5.89), and a selection of pastas ($5.89). Indulge in the cheese-swathed excellence of the ham, ricotta, and mozzarella calzone, a slab of baked ground-beef lasagna topped with homemade marinara sauce, or bask in the flat-screens' glowing athletic combat as the Bella sub's team of prosciutto, capicola, salami, ham, provolone, and veggie conquer your hunger.
Voted the 2009 and 2010 Best Outdoor Gear retailer in Indianapolis by CityVoters, Nurpu River & Mountain Supply hooks up hikers, bikers, and fresh-air seekers with gear, apparel, footwear, and more from specialty outdoor brands. Stay hydrated with the handy 0.75-liter CamelBak Better Bottle ($9.95), or navigate midnight trips to the refrigerator with the Princeton Tec Byte LED headlamp ($19.95). The MSR Pocket Rocket backpacking stove ($39.95) helps campers fashion a fire on the fly. Expedition-bound explorers can apply this Groupon toward an Osprey Aether 70 backpack ($259) or a Perception Prodigy 12.0 kayak ($699), which floats among Nurpu's vast array of kayaks and standup paddleboards. Because of a centuries-old thumb-war victory against ancient Argentinean craftsmen, Nurpu River & Mountain Supply is one of the few places to find Patagonia-brand clothing in the area.
Staring at a blank piece of paper can be intimidating, but browsing the blank, premade pottery at Kiln Creations draws hibernating creativity from its den, enticing the brain with shape, size, and bisque meat. Pieces range between $4 and $65, and all merry potters are assessed a modest studio fee—$8 for adults and $6 for children under 12—which covers everything required to design and fire a project, including time. Grab a blank plate and paint a meal upon it, stencil a cup with springtime flowers, or decorate a picture frame worthy of being hung inside itself. If the concept of whole objects is intimidating, spend time in the studio on a mosaic project and enjoy affixing a variety of vibrant tiles upon a wood base of your choice ($12–$65), then grout your gorgeous piece at home with supplied materials ($6–$8 studio fee applies).
The rotating flavors of yogurt dispensed from the taps at Yogoland aren’t your typical dessert. Sure, they feature sweet flavors blended with real fruit and chocolate, but they also contain little to no fat, feature four types of active cultures that promote a healthy digestive system, and are OU kosher certified. This range of healthy attributes lets clients decide how healthy or decadent they want their treat to be, customizing their treat from 50 flavors and 50 toppings. For a healthier cup, clients can choose the nonfat, no-sugar-added wild strawberry frozen yogurt topped with slices of mango and kiwi, or after a hard day, treat themselves to cookies and cream frozen yogurt topped with gummy bears, sprinkles, and Oreos. The shop’s staff also blend up smoothies for a healthy fruity beverage.
Working together as makeup artists, Anne White and Holly Kirsh soon bonded over their mutual passion for fashion. In 1994, they started hosting quarterly shopping events in Indianapolis to share the season’s latest trends with other fashionistas. Over time, their style-seeking endeavors evolved into a successful business of culling the latest in skincare products, apparel, and accessories. AH Collection—a name derived from their combined first initials—now boasts locations at the Hamilton Town Center in Noblesville and Clay Terrace in Carmel. The two locations stock a rotating array of apparel selected to match seasonal fashion trends. Cosmetics include foundations, eye shadows, and bronzers to highlight natural features while covering up blemishes and last year's Halloween masks.
