Granted, you get a view of some actual Broad Ripple ripples and Kolman’s place is mere feet away from some of Indy’s best craft brewers and libation stations, but this win is about wayyyyy more than location. Kolman’s plain-spoken, friendly, comforting and has been known to take pity on many a broke-ass musician and/or journalist in need of some quick work on the ol’ grill. The Kolman logo is pretty cool, too — rock-devil-horns completing a K. To top it off, he’s a really, really good dentist who knows how to minimize pain. Thanks, Doc.
