Photo: Parkette Drive In, Lexington, KY

We were in Lexington, KY on Sunday and decided to visit the Parkette Drive In that is going to be featured on Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives.

Parkette.jpgUnfortunately this is all we got to see, as the Parkette is closed on Sunday.  Bummer.
Parkette2.jpg Looking at empty spaces you can almost imagine what it was like in the 50’s on a crowded Friday night.  There must have been places like this in Cincinnati in the past, but they’re all gone.

Ikea Crayfish Party

IkeaCrayfishParty.jpgI saw this sign at the Ikea West Chester and thought it was a little odd.  When you think crayfish, Sweden’s not the first place that comes to mind.  But with a little Googling, I found from Wikipedia that indeed, Crayfish parties are held in Sweden.  Kräftskiva is a traditional summertime eating and drinking celebration held in the late summer.

Everything you need to know about Sweden, you can learn at Ikea!

Photos: Indianapolis City Market

I took a day trip up to Indianapolis over the weekend and encountered the Indianapolis City Market.  It’s been open since 1821 and about to go through a major makeover.  Which is good, because it’s nearly empty right now.  It was still open when we got there, but there was not a single person inside that we could see.  Kind of eerie.  The market is very large and has the potential to be like the Milwaukee Public Market. or the Columbus North Market.

Video: OK Go – End Love

Is O.K. Go the only band that realizes that videos can be an art form?  Love the combination of stop motion and high speed video.
