    Paradise [ip] Restaurant and Hotel Maps

    Okay, it's that time again... get the maps stickied and updated since I'm starting to get emails about them.  If you see anything that doesn't exist anymore or any new restaurants/hotels that aren't on the map please let me know so I can update it.  Smile

    Man that Restaurant Map is just terrific!... it seems to be all inclusive with the food/beverage joints! Especially for staying at the Westin.

     Thanks again Sher!

     Thank you Sherylin. Big Smile

     

    In addition, I guess I should plug The Rathskellar's beer garden again. Great selection of beers and a truly awesome atmosphere. Park benches under great trees in an enclosed brick area. What's more Gen Conny than that?

    Okay, maybe I'm being blind... but I don't see LJS on the restaurant map.

    Re: Restaurant and Hotel Maps

     I swear it was there earler this eveing.  It was shown on the north side of the circle.  Last year I used my GPS in my phone to try to find it.  I think it's like the safehouse.  You need to know someone to find it

    Re: Restaurant and Hotel Maps

    Nice job as always. 

    One suggestion is to edit the "breakfast spots" map.  You show the Ram on this map, and they haven't served breakfast fare in several years, while steak and shake is missing from this map, and you can get breakfast (eggs, pancakes, etc.) there.

    The Hotel map is becoming invaluable considering my friends and I haven't been back to Indy since '07.

    Re: Restaurant and Hotel Maps

     On a side note. I know this may be nitpicking. But could you add any local businesses/pharmacy/grocery stores nearby. I know last year my group went for a walk and found a cvs pharmacy downtown. It had a good grocery selection and our group had stocked up on bottled water and food for the last day.

    For those wanting to save a buck and have time to stock up before or during the con. I know these grocery/pharmacies can save alot of money and time if your in a rush to get out the door for gaming. Or if you forgot to pack something or need some other suppiles. I googled it and I saw two CVS pharmacies around circle center.  Our group went to the one on Illinois Street (I think).

    CVS/pharmacy
    105 East Ohio Street, Indianapolis, IN, United States‎ - (317) 636-5577

    B
    CVS/pharmacy
    175 North Illinois Street, Indianapolis, IN, United States‎ - (317) 636-6664
     
    Hope thats helpful.

    The pharmacy on N Illinois is already on there.  I also have the 24x7 Walgreens on the map. 
     
    I went ahead and added the Ohio St location but it does not have pharamacy hours on Saturday and is also further away, which is the reason it was on the list.

     Sherilyn, I don't know how many 'Thank You!' exclaimations you get, but your thread has been a Godsend to myself, and my group over the last 3 years of attending.
