Family exploring the murals in Downtown Fort Wayne

Summer in Fort Wayne

Enjoy a Fun Night Out at The Sidecar

The Sidecar is a relatively new dining option in downtown Fort Wayne. Think of it as the live-in sister location to Copper Spoon (formerly Wine Down Tasting & Tapas). It’s a great spot for appetizers and drinks and has plenty of local charm thanks to its location. I brought two friends along for a girls night out and here are the features we liked the best:…

Grab your Girls and Enjoy Ladies Night at Sky Zone

Sometimes I look at my schedule and it can be daunting. Besides my day-to-day work responsibilities, there are after work meetings for things I am involved in throughout the community, family functions to attend, work that needs to be done at home and so much more. There have been weeks when I realize I haven’t taken any time out for myself, or my friends. That's why I always like it when I find unique events that make for a great reason to grab a couple of friends and spend the night having a little fun…

It was the summer after my senior year of high school, and as an alternative music fan, I was stoked to see some of my favorite bands in the flesh: Sonic Youth, Beck, Hole (Courtney Love punched my friend Dan in the arm!), Cypress Hill (The best mosh pit I’ve ever been in!), The Mighty Mighty Bosstones (Trombones!). It was the start of a love affair with live music; over the course of the next year I went on to see Live, PJ Harvey, Bush, The Goo Goo Dolls, No Doubt…and I haven’t looked back. I’ve seen pretty much all of the great ‘90s alternative bands, but there’s one exception that stands out, and that’s The Flaming Lips. But this September 16 - 17 I’ll be able to remedy that at Fort Wayne’s inaugural Middle Waves Music Festival…
