The Weekend 5

"What are we going to do this weekend?" We have an answer for you! Each week Visit Indy publishes five can't-miss events for the upcoming weekend. Save yourself the trouble of checking back by getting The Weekend 5 sent directly to your inbox each Thursday morning.

Event 1 - IU HEALTH MOMENTUM INDYCelebrate cycling with a weekend of bike races and rides, music, family fun, and food. Looking for an electrifying race? Friday’s Mass Ave Crit has you covered with a fast and furious course through the Mass Ave Cultural District. This is the fifth stop of the American Criterium Cup, so the fastest riders and teams in the U.S. are competing for high stakes. Saturday is a bit more laid back with the Indy Crit and Honor Major Taylor Fondo. In addition to racing for all ages, Indy Crit is also a festival and expo. The Fondo recognizes the life and contributions of Indy’s African-American world-champion cyclist, Marshall “Major” Taylor. Look for specials at neighborhood businesses all weekend.

Everyone underestimates her: peers, professors, and especially her ex.  But with the help of her best dog buddy, Bruiser, and a few new friends, Elle squashes the stereotype of being a dumb blonde sorority girl and  learns she’s got what it takes to succeed on her own. Catch this feel-good musical through August 25 at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre. Tickets start at $49 and include the legendary buffet.
