Start the new year fresh by treating yourself while supporting local. Starting Sunday, savor three-course, value-priced menu choices at more than 200 Indy restaurants. Delicious discounts are available on all sides of the city through February 6, and you can also try the cocktails created for the occasion like the Mistletoe Kiss, Kentucky Buzz, or Not Your Grandma’s Cookies.
The Pacers continue a four-game homestand after a loss Wednesday to the Dallas Mavericks. Friday, they take on the Orlando Magic (watch online only) and limited, in-person tickets are available starting at $50 for Sunday and Monday games against the Toronto Raptors. The Pacemates, Boomer, Hype Crew, and High Octane Drumline add to the entertainment.
You can’t neglect your health but don’t want to face a crowded gym? Join Indy Pride and Orangetheory Fitness for a fun, easy, at-home workout Saturday. Make sure you have a sweat towel, water bottle, yoga mat, and 1-2 canned goods to use as weights. RSVP for free to receive the link to the virtual class, but an optional $20 donation to Indy Pride is welcomed.
Indy native Drew Lynch finished in second place on season 10 of America’s Got Talent with his hilarious observations about living with a severe stutter. He has shown how to turn a negative into a postive and continues to inspire others with comedy via his YouTube content (often featuring his service dog, Stella) and live appearances. See him through Sunday for $50 and up.
Fans of the classic short comedy films of the ’20s-’40s will love this collection of modern films made as if from that older time. The quick banter and slapstick you love about the Three Stooges and Abbott and Costello are back, and you can enjoy it all at home Saturday thanks to the Garfield Park Arts Center. Register online for $5 and receive the link to watch.
