Winter is coming to Indianapolis and it’s time to talk about what’s going on in this great city. November brings quite a few great performances to Indianapolis Downtown stages! Along with all these things that Indianapolis offers, there’s always some sort of event or another going on in the fantastic city. It is one of the great cities located in the Midwest. Like many other bigger cities across the United States, it has many things to offer. Cassandra Wilson springs to mind.

You will be able to find some organic and hippie food for all those hipsters. Plus I heard they have some awesome free music on occasion when it’s not too cold out.
- Go Visit some awesome libraries. Specifically go visit the beautiful Central Library and read a damn book. The Central Library provides reading lists, an events schedule and even homework help. Seriously, it is one of the best places to go and get lost in the aisles of books and it’s also warm. The Indiana State Library is also open to the public for a variety of needs including but not limited to: genealogy research, Indiana history, preservation, rare books and manuscripts, reference and government services, talking books and Braille library, as well as the state data center. Take a tour of the Indiana State Library. Tours include Architecture Tour, “Pursuit of Pride” Children’s Tour and a Researcher’s Tour. If you are nerd like me, you need to go check this place out.
That’s all I got for now. Stay warm Indy!
