I really like Have a Nice Day. On Friday nights, they have $1 u-call-its until 11PM (this is probably subject to change with no notice). The wait at the bar is usually not too bad (especially compared to their neighbor, Tiki Bob's). You can buy as many drinks at one time as you like. If you want to buy 10 drinks at 10:55, that's okay! The music really ranges ... sometimes I love it, sometimes I hate it! They play "older" music from the 80s and 90s as well as hip-hop. The dance floor is great. It's large and is elevated ... there is also a cage to dance in if you so choose (ladies only! no men allowed!). I really like the layout of Have a Nice Day but I prefer the music of Tiki Bob's.
I like going to Tiki Bob's on Friday nights. The drinks are 50 cents up until 11PM, I think. I think the cover is $5 ... things like this are always subject to change at any moment. The only bad part about that is the wait ... it can take an extremely long time at the bar and then you are supposed to be limited to purchasing one drink at a time. So I guess the earlier you get there, the more likely you are to be able to take full advantage of this deal. I like the music at Tiki Bob's ... mostly hip-hop with some pop and rock. Not bad! The dance floor sucks, though ... it is very small and is not really separated from the rest of the club. I really think it is poor design and should be changed ... elevated and expanded ... something!
The Place for Hair is just okay. I would not really recommend it to anyone. Something about it just does not sit well with me. However, it must be alright because it is still in business ... it has been a staple in Trafalgar for as long as I can remember. The prices are fair. I think the place just seems a little outdated.
The Outpost is a great store to purchase Western Wear and accessories. Not many of these types of stores exist anymore in the general vicinity; they have a lot of hard-to-find items. The Outpost also does alterations. Prices are not too bad.
Thrifty Threads has actually moved to 86th St in Indianapolis (near 86th and Ditch). It is a great second-hand store ... or I guess I should say "gently-used." The prices are fair and proceeds benefit the Julian Center ... a non-profit organization that helps victims of domestic violence. The center is so helpful to abused women and their children, providing shelter, food, clothing, school for the children, counseling services, and so much more!
I truly enjoyed my maternity stay at St. Francis. The nurses and doctors were kind and caring and made sure all of my needs were met. My newborn son was well taken care of and everyone made sure we had everything we needed when it was time to leave to go home. A nurse even called the next week to follow-up and see how things were going. And by the way, the food was excellent! I would recommend the St. Francis maternity floor to anyone.
The Journal is a fairly good newspaper. Actually, it's quite a good newspaper for a small city. The local news is quite extensive and they don't write junk! I really enjoy reading the Saturday paper to see who is getting married and engaged in the community. I also enjoy the extensive coverage of the local high school sports. The Journal does a good job covering Franklin, Whiteland, Greenwood, Center Grove, Indian Creek, and Edinburgh (along with some private schools).
The Indianapolis Star is really a great newspaper. I enjoy reading it cover to cover every day of the week. The news stories are informative and do not contain many errors. I also enjoy looking at indystar.com throughout the workday to keep up on the news. I pay for my subscription very conveniently through the EasyPay program. I believe it costs $16.50 per month for receiving the paper everyday, even Sundays ... which is a great value given the coupons which are in the Sunday paper.
A Bond of Love is a great agency if you are interested in newborn adoption. The staff at A Bond of Love find birth mothers who are interested in giving their unborn child for adoption. They also work with potential adoptive families and work to make a "match" between birth families and adoptive families. The process varies -- it could be a short wait or it could be a longer wait. It just depends. The cost is substantial (but I really don't know how it compares to other places), but I highly recommend A Bond of Love for infant, domestic adoptions.
really love this place! Quiet ... intimate ... friendly workers. The iced lattes taste great. The iced almond latte is my favorite. I go out of my way to visit Lazy Daze. It began as a pregnancy craving but stuck with me after I had my child. I haven't tasted the sweets available, but I am sure they are good.
