Want to say happy holidays with
flowers this year? Locally and nationally renowned, McNamara Florist is ranked in the FTD’s Top 20 in the United States and Canada. Although the business
has vastly expanded — growing from
its humble beginning in an Indy str eet- corner building in 1954 to a florist powerhouse — McNamara continues to be a neighborhood florist and caters to customer service. Each location features a full on-site floral arrangement staff that will help the least green of thumbs come up with the perfect arrangement and even offers same day delivery for those acts of spontaneity.
It’s pretty a much a draw between Morty’s and Crackers — both host high-quality headliners (including Jeffrey Ross, D.L. Hughley and Robert Klein at Morty’s in the not-so-distant past); both are 18+; both keep cover charges reasonable, with a two-drink minimum. Morty’s open-mic nights — known as the Great Indiana Mic-Off — are a bit more exciting than Crackers’; structured as an ongoing battle between comics, they offer competitors the chance to win $500 (at the end of a three-month round of competitions), and even more in the annual Mic-Off finals. The Joint is going strong after re-opening in 2010; the original owners had closed the club after a rocky initial three-plus-year run.
