while stumbling through wikipedia i discovered that indianpolis is home to several cultural events, several of which are held in september.

the indy greek fest is next weekend. here, i will eat greek salad, gyros, and baklava.

then, the next weekend, hosts the indy irish fest. i hope to see some of the kilted mile. there's also a sheep herding event, but i doubt it will be very interesting unless nibbler or the hypnotoad show up. i might also try to catch my first rugby match.

this same weekend also plays host to st. joan of arc's french market, where i will sample some quiche and crepes.

and, on the following weekend, falls the middle eastern festival of indianapolis. i just can't wait to see amin and the sultans, america's best-known middle eastern band.

ha. i don't know if i'll really make it out to all of these events, but i think i would kind of like to. i learned a lot of great things about indianapolis today. i'm going to make it a point to enjoy more of the history and culture here before i leave forever.

I wouldn't mind going to these on the weekends I make it up. Just point me in the direction of the baklava eating contest.

Re: Joining other Indianapolis bloggers
Hey, it's Arthur again. Thanks for joining! It won't let me log you in yet, because it looks like some code is missing on your homepage. I think all you need is the "next" link. You have previous, join, list, then there should be a next. After that, I think you'll be good to go.

I'll add your site to the blogroll, then when you get set up in the ring you'll be added to the left side of the Indianapolis Bloggers homepage. Let me know if you want a pic to go next to the link to your blog.

Any more questions, let me know! Thanks again and if you know anyone else who might be interested, send them our way. Thanks!
