Devour Downtown Winter 2015

I’m not going to lie, usually we’re pretty boring on the weekends. We sleep in, we relax, we snuggle the dog. It’s really not worth writing about on the blog. This weekend is a little more action-packed than most for us!

Devour DowntownOur friends Leif and Katrin (who, as you might remember, had the awesome Oktoberfest party I blogged about several months ago) had the brilliant idea of getting a group of friends together for dinner during Devour Downtown. Devour Downtown is an event in Indianapolis where a ton of the restaurants downtown put together a three-course menu for a set price that is significantly less than the normal price. The idea is that it gets people downtown during a time of year when there aren’t a lot of conventions or other events keeping the restaurants packed to capacity. It happens twice a year – once in the winter and once in the summer. I’m assuming it’s good for the restaurants because so many of them participate year after year. From a consumer’s perspective, it’s fantastic. It’s a great time to try out the pricier restaurants that you don’t usually eat at on a regular basis. St. Elmo’s Steakhouse, McCormick & Schmicks, and The Oceanaire would all fall into that category. For the record, I highly recommend St. Elmo’s (or it’s sister restaurant next door….Harry & Izzy’s) and McCormick & Schmicks. I have never tried The Oceanaire, but I’ve heard excellent reviews. So if you’re not from Indy and you’re ever visiting us, add those restaurants to your list to try! It’s also a great time to frequent your favorite downtown restaurants (Weber Grill being my absolute favorite!) or to try a new place. This year Katrin got reservations for fourteen (yes, 14!) of us at Adobo Grill.  Continue reading Devour Downtown Winter 2015
