First Fridays on Mass Ave, Indianapolis


My husband and I decided to visit Mass Ave for First Fridays in Indianapolis, because I had a few pieces in a gallery there, and had a blast. I love going to Mass Ave when there’s nothing special going on so it was extra exciting to see all of the great artists at First Fridays and Handmade Promenade.

We were pleasantly surprised to see my favorite bakery, The Flying Cupcake bakery, had moved to Mass Ave along with a lot of other new places we didn’t recognize. Hurrah for new business in Indianapolis! We need it!

We also happened to stop by our old favorite (was right down the street from our old apartment) Elbow Room for some dinner on our downtown adventure. I got my absolute favorite salad ever, the Strawberry Chicken Salad. Ben got his favorite, the Elbow Burger. I tried both and I can assure you they are amazing. The burger is cajun spiced and unlike any burger I have ever had, it’s spicy and delicious. The Strawberry Chicken Salad comes packed with fresh mandarin oranges, fresh strawberries, blue cheese, candied walnuts, chicken cooked to perfection and of course a large portion of their strawberry vinaigrette. It was perfect for today, it tasted like summer.

    Mmmm! I miss First Friday’s and Mass Ave so much. Florida has a bigger art scene, but not as much personality!

    Rachel, Indianapolis misses you! <3 I've checked out the Florida scene before when I was preparing to move there~ isn't it inspiring? Did you attend Sanrio's Small Gift event in Miami? I can't wait to see what you're getting into!

    Sarah, the salad is AMAZING. It's my absolute favorite salad. I wish I could send you one right now!
