Indy among Most Impressive US Cities

Thrillist recently reached out to expert travelers and writers to find out which American cities are the best. Seeking to find the friendliest, cheapest, tastiest and most innovative spots led to where else: Indianapolis.

If you're staying downtown, at first glance you'll see a lot of chain restaurants. But if you look a little harder, you'll find a hotbed of culinary masterpieces. In 2017 Condé Nast Traveler named Indianapolis the most underrated food city in America, thanks in large part to Martha Hoover's empire.

No other city hosts an event like Indy does; whether it's the Superbowl, Indy 500, Final Fours, NBA All-Star game, NFL combines, B1G Championships or proudly serving millions at the convention center.

What if you're not just travelling here, but looking to move here to improve your life and/or career? Good news: Glassdoor ranks Indy #2 on the list of best American cities for jobs. Our northern suburbs Carmel and Fishers have both been ranked as "Best Place to Live" over a dozen times in the past couple years. What more do you need?

Hyperbolic Obit for Hyperbolic Orbit

Did you see the lunar eclipse this morning? Did you see the one last month!? Do you even watch the sky, bro?? Comet Leonard [named after Colts All-Pro Darius Leonard] aka c/2021, the year's best & brightest, will make it's first and only appearance in the East before sunrise (between Big Dipper's handle & Arcturus) and then in the western sky after sunset starting on the 14th, looking towards the sun (ouch!)  I say "only" appearance because this happened 80,000 years ago but let's be honest they didn't have the tools we have now, and we're not yet positive this'll be visible to the unaided eye. But we do know it's hyperbolic orbit will soon fling the comet out of the Milky Way, and possibly into another solar system lightyears away.  RIP Comet Leonard 12/12/21 You're a Star (& comet)

64-team bracket BLANK

Go ahead and knock yourself out with this blank bracket, but I ( and Joe Lunardi ) find it more enjoyable setting the field before Sunday...

Fishers Medals Again

In the bustling Nickel Plate District of Fishers, Indiana, Tracy Gritters can recall a time when things looked very different. “It was a two-lane road 17 years ago,” she said of the property around her boutique store, Gallery 116 , where she has sold locally made goods since 2002. “We were worried about Target coming to town.” The retail giant eventually did — it's located about an 11-minute walk from her store — but the city's expansion hasn’t been the scenario she feared. Fishers, which was named MONEY's Best Place to Live in 2017 , officially upgraded from a town to a city and swore in its first mayor on January 1, 2015. Mayor Scott Faddness is still in office, and in the years since his inauguration, the city itself has been transformed. The newly developed downtown area became the Nickel Plate District , now home to an outdoor amphitheatre, plenty of retail stores and restaurants, a brewery, luxury apartments, and a high-speed internet coworking sp
