Indianapolis Day 1: Horsey Sauce!

Each Spring I spend a week in downtown Indianapolis attending a conference with my estate planning group. This year I invited Mike to fly up and spend a few days hanging out and exploring the city. I always have a little bit of free time in the evenings and some afternoons. I flew to Indy on Sunday afternoon and attended classes on Monday and Tuesday. Mike flew in on Tuesday afternoon, arriving just as my classes were finishing around 5pm. I met him at Kilroy's, the bar next door to our hotel.

Mike brought along our new camera, which we had just purchased for my upcoming African safari, and spent some time at the bar taking pictures of the surrounding buildings.

We had a couple of drinks and killed some time before our dinner reservations. When it was time, we walked over to Harry and Izzy's, the slightly more casual, sister restaurant of St. Elmo's Steakhouse. St. Elmo's is an Indy institution and I had eaten there on a previous trip. Both restaurants are famous for their shrimp cocktail, not for the shrimp but for the cocktail sauce. It's full of horseradish, loads of horseradish. I knew Mike would love it. So of course, we started with the shrimp cocktail.

That got our eyes watering and noses burning. WOW! I've never had so much horsey sauce! For the main event, Mike had the South African lobster tail and I had the grilled salmon oscar style.

After dinner, we walked back towards our hotel and stopped off at Claddagh's Irish Pub for a nightcap. Mike tried out a local, Indy-brewed beer.

Once back at the hotel, Mike took a few pictures of the street scenes before we headed up to bed for the evening.
