The culinary wizards at Sidelines cook up hearty helpings of pub grub that patrons can discover on the extensive menu. Limber chomping muscles for a marathon meal with starters such as zesty battered and fried pub pickles ($5.79) or garbage fries, a savory mélange of bacon, tomatoes, and jalapenos lounging atop a bed of waffle fries and blanketed in melted mozzarella and cheddar cheeses ($7.59). The selection of five pizzas allows diners to indulge their craving for a disk without having to endure the gamey texture of a frisbee. Table visitors can also wrap tongues around the Porkzilla sandwich, staffed by grilled ham, slow-cooked pulled pork, and bacon ($8.99), or munch on the Knock-Out burger, a bunless wonder that packs the space between two grilled cheese sandwiches with bacon and a half-pound steak burger patty ($9.79). Feel free to lubricate a parched palate by sipping one of the beers cascading from the Sidelines tap, such as Labatt, Killian's, and Blue Moon.

It seems fitting for the Indiana Repertory Theatre to be housed in such a dramatically beautiful 1927 multi-story concrete building. With its white terra cotta façade, emphasized by the Spanish-baroque style triangular curved arch, the building draws attention to the theatre troupe’s glowing marquee in downtown Indianapolis. Inside, the cadre of actors pull crowds in further, showcasing classic productions and newer works with seeming ease. A marble-floored grand lobby welcomes in theatergoers looking to catch one of their nine annual productions, while the sweeping staircase shows mezzanine level patrons to their plush seats. The not-for-profit Indiana Repertory Theatre, founded in 1972, is the only League of Resident Theatres entity in Indiana, sporting more than 100 seasonal and full-time staff.

From the second-story balcony of Tavern On South's century-old building, diners enjoy seasonal menu creations illuminated by a blend of moonlight and the glowing Indianapolis skyline. As noted by Indianapolis Monthly in 2011, the interior's wooden accents and iconic photos of the city "lend the [newly opened] tavern a timeless patina," as diners sip on regional craft beers and thoughtfully selected wines.

Chef Allen Shideler orchestrates the menu and composes its dishes with seasonal ingredients, serving plates such as the chicken pomodoro in accordance with the growing seasons of herbs and the migratory patterns of tomatoes. The tavern is also within walking distance of Lucas Oil Stadium, allowing diners to stroll over to games after dinner.

In this day of DVDs and in-home, on-demand options, drive-in theatres are a rarity. But Tibbs Drive-In Theatre continues to provide what’s generally considered to be an old but cherished way to watch movies, particularly around Indianapolis. From early spring through mid-fall each year, Tibbs visitors can enjoy large-screen movies from the comfort of their own vehicles, or pull together an array of lawn chairs and other foldable furniture for strategically-positioned seats inside the facility’s parking lot. A variety of movies run across the four screens, usually as double-headers, making Tibbs an all-night destination. Concession stand options are plentiful and varied, and a large, grass-covered area is available near the main screen, where younger moviegoers often gather and play.

Situated within blocks of the speedway, Kelly’s Pub Too celebrates the history of the asphalt loop by plastering their sports bar with all sorts of racing memorabilia, ranging from go-karts to NASCAR. Between sips of beer or shots at one of 10 pool tables, bar-goers fill up on a menu of classic bites, splitting baskets of wings and potato skins or tearing into a spicy Cajun blue cheese burger all on their own. The kitchen also turns out 14-inch pizzas topped with chicken, veggies, and sausage, as well as baskets of crispy fish and chips. A wide stage hosts live music acts throughout the week against a speedway mural that shows the track, stands, and a grand marshal questioning his place in the world now that the race has started.

Indy Speed Date scatters the seeds of romance in elegant restaurants across the city by orchestrating flurries of five-minute tête-à-têtes for searching singles. Attendees should dress casual and prepare for 10–15 high-speed conversations in which they will chat with potential partners to determine their tastes, temperaments, and desire to fight crime in leotards. After each brief meeting, participants fill out a score card and then gallop to the next as-yet insignificant other.
