Well, I must say, last week was awesome. I mean seriously awesome. Indy hosted a once-in-a-lifetime event and surpassed everyone’s expectations. We were super.
But after 10 days of non-stop excitement, what can we expect for the week after? Although there won’t be a constant source of crowds and media, our amazing Indy restaurants, venues and attractions have definitely cooked up a few events to continue the fun.
So kick back, relax and enjoy our amazing city.
Utah Jazz vs. Indianapolis Pacers—Tuesday, February 7
Banker’s Life Fieldhouse
Though I may be a bit biased, this might be my favorite event of the week. This Tuesday, Indy hero, Gordon Hayward, returns to his college hometown. With Butler basketball passion and Hayward’s impressive skills, this is sure to be a great game with a great crowd.
Clock: 7 p.m.
Cost: Ticket prices vary
Chaos is a Friend of Mine: Cultural Icons from the Jim Irsay Collection—January 27-May 6
Indiana State Museum
If you haven’t had enough of the football madness, head over to the Indiana State Museum to witness the Colts owner’s eclectic collection. With memorabilia from Peyton Manning, Keith Richards and more, visitors can enjoy a bit of sports and culture.
Clock: Monday-Saturday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.; Sunday 11 a.m.- 5 p.m.

Indy Winter Farmers Market—Saturday, February 11
West Wing of the Indy City Market
One of my favorite Indy destinations, the Indy Winter Farmers Market, is perfect for your local food desires. Shoppers have the opportunity to purchase fresh fruits, vegetables and other homemade goods in the market every weekend. My recommendation: Head over for breakfast and order the Dr.’s Orders from Three Days in Paris. This crepe is amazing.
Clock: 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Cost: Free admission
500 Festival Training Series—February 11
White River State Park
Feeling active or the need to be after eating all of that grub during the big game? The OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon Training Series allows participants to run part of the Mini-Marathon course. Though the actual 500 Festival Mini-Marathon is sold out, the official training series is still open for registration. The series allows participants to prepare for the actual marathon in May through three training events.
