Indianapolis...more like Awesomedianapolis!
Highlight of last night...I ventured up to the revolving restaurant atop the Hyatt Regency in downtown Indianapolis wearing a coffee-stained T-shirt. I rode up the elevator with a guy pushing around huge carts labeled "MEAT". I got off the elevator and realized that there was nothing to see unless I actually went into the restaurant, and a helpful "DRESS CODE" sign clearly indicated that in my current state of disheveledness I was not particularly welcome. However, the meat guy said: "He just wants to take a look around." And the Maitre D' said: "Well, that's alright, because there's no one else up here." So I went in and saw what I could see, and it was very cool.
I went all the way around, and then they asked me if I wanted to sit down and order a drink. I said sure and got a Pina Colada. So I sat for about half an hour and watched the city go by very very slowly.
I'm contemplating going to the Mike Watt show tonight at The Patio here in town. The only thing is that I wouldn't get to Cincy until about 2 or 3 AM local time. But heck, I could sleep in! So I might do it.
And I'm growing my beard back. Again. I feel rebellious.
