This past weekend, we traveled to Indianapolis, Indiana to witness one of the most memorable moments in my family’s life – watching my sister, Dr. Dana Lauture, graduate from Medical School.
We stayed at the downtown Sheraton Hotel, which was conveniently located 10 minute walk from the convention center where the ceremony was held. This wasn’t the best Sheraton I’ve stayed in. Something about the room seemed old.
After the graduation ceremony, we made our way to The Eagle Food and Beer Hall for a celebratory lunch.
This was my kind of restaurant. Nice decorative patio, wooden bench style tables, and good food! The chicken was perfectly crisp, juicy, and… Well, you’ll just have to read the rest here!
The food was so good, it called for a power nap before heading to our next location.
Next stop, dinner! Wait…but we just ate? Let’s just say that “power” nap lasted a little too long. Rick’s Cafe Boatyard is the place to go for great seafood. It’s about a 20 minute drive from downtown Indy.
Despite the obnoxiously cold weather in MAY, we still enjoyed sitting on the patio overlooking the Eagle Creek Reservoir. My entrée, the Tempura Fried Jumbo Shrimp, was to die for! I would’ve eaten 2 plates if it wasn’t $22. Check out more details here.
Time to PARTYYY!
After dinner, we headed to our friend’s house for a quick pregame before the turn up. Just a couple blocks away, on mass ave (Massachusetts Avenue), are two gay bars that we were told have the best music. Tini was our first stop for drinks and Metro Nightclub, right next door, for dancing. Boy was I surprised! Great music, good vibes, and guys showing out on the dance floor more than I did… Werk honnay!!!
The following morning was horrible. I was so drained and in need of water. However, we had another reason to celebrate – Mother’s Day!
We headed back to our friend’s house for a Mother’s Day/final goodbye BBQ. The food was bomb. Didn’t know my sister’s friend could throw down like that.
