A Day in the Life of a Lafayette-West Lafayette Spring Break Family

Sacred Grounds Coffee

Sacred Grounds Reclaimed Coffee Shop

Spring Break Season is here! Many people head south on their travels, but there are so many wonderful places to visit right in our own backyard. Last March we had family visit from Michigan and we spent a day visiting a host of great attractions and restaurants in the area. Let me share my day in a life as a Lafayette-West Lafayette Spring Family!

8am – Wake up early to catch the sunrise! Head to Sacred Ground Reclaimed Coffee Shop for a smoked sausage and cheese wrap, hash browns, and delicious light roast Ethiopian coffee. Rich, smooth hot chocolate is the perfect refreshment for the kids.

Farm Family

9am – With over 80 pieces of outdoor art pick a few that interests the group and traverse the area to find them.  We picked the Family Farm Sculpture, Farmers Market Mural, Boarrister, and Envisioning Tomorrow as they are all located downtown Lafayette (and we only had an hour!)

10am – Take the kids to Imagination Station, Lafayette’s only science center designed to provide the opportunity to explore space, science, technology, and engineering in our community.

11am – What is more exciting to a kid than imagining to be a firefighter?! Call ahead for an appointment to visit the Five Points Fire Station Museum, a 93-year-old building where you can see what it was like to be a firefighter in the 1930s as well as try on firefighter coats and helmets.

Arni's Train!

Arni’s Train!

12pm – Lunchtime has arrived! With over 250 restaurants, there is something for everyone! We chose Arni’s Pizza for its delicious food and charm.  Sit in the Toy Room where you are surrounded by dolls, trains, trucks and more. Our little daughter can always find Mickey Mouse and gets so excited to see the train run and eat thin crust pizza!

1pm – It may be spring break, but a little bit of learning keeps the mind fresh! Explore the site of The Battle of Tippecanoe. Visit the grounds, take in the the vivid museum displays and discover the history of a time when two Shawnee brothers, Tecumseh and The Prophet, had a dream of uniting many tribes into an organized defense against the white settlers. Walk the battleground where Native Americans and settlers clashed and a conflict of cultures was resolved. Do not miss the Wah-ba-shik-a Nature Center which features natural history exhibits and has a wildlife observation window and small taxidermy animal displays.

2:30pm – Enjoy a little recreation and competition at Monster Mini Golf, an indoor glow in the dark monster themed 18 hole course and arcade. The winner in our family gets to brag and be king or queen for the day, whereas the rest of the family has to suffer the nonsense. My husband won last year to my dismay!

Which toppings are your favorite?

4pm – Snacks!!  It may still be chilly, but what is more refreshing than a cold treat! Yogurt reTREAT, a locally owned and operated self-serve frozen yogurt shop welcomes guests to grab a cup, fill the cup with the flavor(s) of frozen yogurt and the portion you desire, add topping(s) from the topping bars, and weigh and pay for your delicious creation! My family loves their Very Berry Sorbet, which is refreshing and gluten-free!

5pm – Choose Your “Canvas” at All Fired Up! With a wide array of pieces to choose from and weekly specials that offer something unique for all ages, All Fired Up is the perfect destination for family fun.

We love Triple XXX burgers and onion rings!

We love Triple XXX burgers and onion rings!

6:30pm – Let the feasting begin! Our family loves a good burger joint and one place that is always on our lists when we have family visit is Triple XXX! Have you ever craved a burger so bad your taste buds are literally salivating? After trying a Triple XXX burger you will be feeling this way all the time! Add in fries, chili and root beer and you may never leave the restaurant!

8pm – Bowling fever! Visit Mike Aulby’s Arrowhead Bowl, where you can find great bowling and great family fun in a smoke free environment! Take part in billards, arcardes, cosmic-bowling, and a full service snack bar!

This Spring Break day is only a small sampling of everything in store when you visit Lafayette-West Lafayette! Check out all our family friendly activities at http://www.homeofpurdue.com/whattodo/familyfriendly.html.  I hope you have as much fun as my family had when they visited!

Craft Beer, Unique Sandwiches & Great Customer Service Equals Lafayette Brewing Company

Lafayette Brewing Company- OutsideDowntown Lafayette is home to many unique family owned restaurants. Located right on Main Street next to the Lafayette Theatre is a microbrewery owned and operated by high school sweethearts Greg and Nancy Eming. Lafayette Brewing Company opened its doors in September of 1993. Locals and regulars may refer to it as “The Brew Co” or “LBC”.  LBC has a family dining room, a bar, and an upstairs party venue. The upstairs hosts many private parties, comedy events, and the occasional local band or dance group. Local entertainment seen upstairs in the past few months has included One Size Fits All (an improv comedy), James Moon and the Third Floor Invention (a local band), and Cap’n Dangerous (a local DJ). The upstairs also features a pizza kitchen that is a favorite to the “Brew Crew” members.

SONY DSCLet me tell you about the main attraction, the beer. All of the beer on tap is brewed right in house at the Brew Co. Typically 12 beers are featured at any given time. Four flagship beers are always on tap and are definite favorites. They include the Black Angus Oatmeal Stout, Star City Lager, Tippecanoe Common Ale and the 85. Something really unique about my personal favorite beer, the stout, is that it is made with 10% oatmeal. Currently featured on tap are many darker beers, as it is wintertime. (Cold weather drinkers usually like the darker and stout beers.) Something really to get excited about is the cask conditioned beers that are featured at LBC for limited times. Most recently was the Dastardly Dark with added vanilla beans and cocoa nibs put on cask. A cask beer is one that is fermented for a second time in the vessel it is served in. The results of a cask-conditioned beer are more creamy and smooth. All of those flavors are combined beautifully to create a sweet and delicious unique beer.

Black and Blue Burger

Black and Blue Burger

Amongst all of the hype around the beer, taking a look at the food menu is really important when dining at the Brew Co. The menu is in the form of a newspaper. The centerfold features the food selections. From large salads, to unique sandwiches to burgers, the menu has a little something for every palate. My personal recommendation is a sandwich called the Chicken Meltdown. Layered between two jalapeno cornbread pieces are chicken, bacon and lots of homemade beer-BQ! It was quite the explosion of flavors. Other regular favorites include the queso covered chicken nachos, and a large platter of fish and chips. They also offer three different seasoning to be put on the fries including ranch, Parmesan and Cajun.

Lafayette Brewing Company is one of the most welcoming places downtown. The staff ensures that every guests leaves with great experiences. All of the servers and bartenders are extremely knowledgeable about each and every beer on tap at all times. They will work with you to find the perfect beer for each and every person, over the age of 21 of course. Next time you go out to eat, try supporting the local economy by visiting the Lafayette Brewing Company. Whether you are bringing your young family or a group of 20 friends, the Brew Co. has something for everyone.

Enjoy a Visit to the Classy and Historical Union Club Hotel!

IMG_9905As a student in hospitality and tourism management, it excites me to think of all the amazing opportunities such an industry holds for me. I mean, look at me right now! I get the remarkable chance to share all of the wonderful aspects and my own personal experiences Lafayette-West Lafayette has to offer to visitors and locals alike. Hospitality and tourism is just such a fascinating, ever-changing and adventurous career path. To further expand my knowledge in the field, I have been given the honor to intern at Purdue’s very own Union Club Hotel. Being the only hotel officially on Purdue’s campus, it is in high demand and an icon to Boilermaker country since 1924.

IMG_9899[1]So what is the buzz all about? Well, the classy and historical Union Club Hotel features 192 hotel rooms including 8 luxury suites and 58 deluxe lodging! The minute you step into the hotel, you’re greeted by the friendly front desk staff who assists you in checking in. Once you have your key, you head through the winding corridors of the hotel to find your spotless room. Within each room, there is an assortment of amenities to make your feel right at home. Each room features a work desk, private bath, air conditioning, hair dryer, coffee maker, iron/ironing board, electronic locks, two-line speakerphone with voice mail, televisions, and free high-speed Wi-Fi. Within the hotel, guests can find an exercise facility, breakfast room service, and coin laundry facilities. Traveling from afar? The hotel offers a variety of airport shuttles from both Purdue University Airport and Indianapolis. Driving yourself? There is a convenient parking garage across the street that is free of charge exclusively for guests. You are sure to feel at ease with the quick and efficient housekeeping staff to care for your environment and the bellhop staff to serve you and your family. A big part of the staff is students such as myself, and we are always eager to help in any way!

Enclosed in the landmark Purdue Memorial Union building, the hotel is close to all! There are a variety of restaurants, lounges, and activities all in one central location so you never even have to leave the Purdue Memorial Union in order to have everything you need while having an unforgettable time! The Union has a large array of places to grab a bite to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Start your morning right by grabbing a cup of coffee at what is rumored to be one of the most popular Starbucks in Indiana! Fill up at Urban Market by picking from a mixture of different cereals that are their very own unique cereal bar! Other quick service restaurants great for breakfast, lunch or dinner include: Ah•Z Sushi and Noodle Soup, Flatbreads, Freshens, Tasty Bite Indian Masala, La Salsa Mexican Grill, Lemongrass, Pick and Mix Salads and Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen. For a place to gather and dine, head to the Sagamore Restaurant for a finer side of dining or Pappy’s Sweet Shop or Oasis Café for a more relaxed and quaint atmosphere. My personal favorite is grabbing a chicken Caesar wrap from Oasis Café. While a guest at the Union Club Hotel, all dining charges can be made directly to your hotel bill for a handier all-inclusive check.

Surrounded by the college vibe and lively campus, there is so much to do during your stay! Head upstairs to the Purdue Welcome Center to talk with students themselves as they guide you through a map of campus and tell you all the major spots to visit. Later, head downstairs for a fun-filled night at Union Rack and Roll! You’ll be enticed by the bright colors, fun lights and bumping music while bowling in one of their 12 lanes or playing billiards from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. on weekends for Xtreme Bowling. You can also head there during your free time throughout the day from 10 a.m. – 12 a.m.

IMG_9916The Union Club Hotel is also the perfect location and size for any small or large occasion! The Purdue Memorial Union itself can host up to 1,000 people within their elegant space for banquets, meetings, exhibitions, and other types of events you wish to hold. The rooms vary from large ballrooms to a small classroom setting. Just bordering the Purdue Memorial Union is the Stewart Center to host even more events! This building was specifically built with conferences, banquets, and meetings in mind. Within its 23 meeting accommodations, it can host a versatile number of groups from 10 all the way to 500 people. Stewart also has large auditoriums to fit the needs of large presentations or ceremonies. Fowler Hall auditorium can host up to 400 attendees while Loeb Playhouse can hold up to 1,000. Whether it’s a wedding or a large lecture, there will be plenty of space to hold guests in the central location of the Union Club Hotel. Hosting your event in the winter? There are extremely convenient underground tunnels that connect together the nearby parking garage, the Purdue Memorial Union, and Stewart Center so you never have to step out into the cold!

With a welcoming staff, spotless rooms, and a step and hop away from nearly everything you’d need, the Union Club Hotel is a truly good value. By interning at the hotel, I’ve learned so much in a short amount of time, and I’ve grown to appreciate the hard work put in to ensuring guests enter the hotel in good hands and leave completely satisfied with irreplaceable memories. Plan your next visit today to experience it all for yourself!

Weekend Update! Looking for a fun Indiana weekend getaway? Or do you live in this area and are looking for entertainment close by? Check out the endless possibilities for fun events happening this upcoming weekend in Lafayette-West Lafayette, Indiana.

On Friday, February 27, head to Purdue University to listen to the American Music Repertory Ensemble, featuring the music of the Gene Krupa Orchestra and Anita O’Day. Krupa began playing drums professionally in 1927 when he broke into the Chicago scene as a member of “Thelma Terry and Her Playboys,” the first notable co-ed American jazz band to be led by a female musician. He influenced the drum industry by endorsing Slingerland drums’s tom-tomAs with tuneable top and bottom heads and partnering with Armand Zildjian Company to develop the modern hi-hat cymbals. In 1978, Krupa became the first drummer inducted into the Modern Drummer Hall of Fame. O’Day broke onto the jazz scene in the late 1930’s as a dynamic vocalist when she was hired to perform at Down Beat editor’s club, Off-Beat. She worked with jazz greats Gene Krupa, Woody Herman, and Stan Kenton. Do not miss this drumming fun night!

Flying Jameson

Fighting Jamesons

More music abounds at Nine Irish Brothers (both locations!) on Saturday, February 28! End the month off with a smashing good time with a performance by the Fighting Jamesons at Nine Irish Brothers in Lafayette. The Fighting Jamesons have quickly developed a strong national presence thanks to their updated versions of classic Irish and American folk songs, as well as a growing catalog of original tunes. They’ve shared the stage with legendary Irish rock acts such as the Dropkick Murphys, the Saw Doctors, and the Young Dubliners, and earned headlining slots in venues and festivals nationwide. Since releasing their self-titled debut album (produced and engineered by Capital Records recording artist Mark Padgett, “Mae”), they have stormed on to the live scene as one of Celtic Rock’s most sought-after groups.

Lachlan

Lachlan

Lachlan performs at Nine Irish Brothers in West Lafayette the same night! Lachlan is a duo featuring fast-paced and well-played Celtic tunes. This is a talented and versital duo, with guitar playing to everything from bagpipes and uilleann pipes, to Irish flutes and whistles. Lachlan is a great, upbeat band, good for toe-tapping, clapping, or jumping up and down. This weekend of music is sure to satisfy your musical hearts desire!

The Downtowner is Here to Serve a Piping Hot Breakfast!

10348369_10153411211218154_1225216350651767572_nDo you find yourself hungry after shopping at Market Square and wanting something for lunch? While Market Square offers several wonderful options, you might check out The Downtowner. Located in the alley at Market Square this is a nice family diner where you can find anything from breakfast food, sandwiches, soups and salads.

I have lived in Lafayette all my life and have always heard about the Downtowner and know many people that frequent it often; but I’m a little ashamed to say that this most recent visit was my very first time there. It for sure will not be my last though!

When you walk in the restaurant it’s hard not to notice the large wall filled with license plates. It’s interesting to look at and wonder or dream about where all those cars have been. Next time I go in, I’m going to see if there is a story behind them, surely there is a reason why they are all up there.  Anyone know?

10474646_10152914543783154_1311074299567394922_nAnyway, the food was great and they were very quick! When I visit a diner for the first time, I usually like to stick with breakfast food, not really sure why but an omelet is typically what I will order. That is exactly what I ordered this time and it was great! Came out piping hot and filled to the brim with yummy fillings. My Dad, a somewhat regular at the Downtowner was with me also and he got a sandwich, boy did it look good too! I can’t wait to go back and try all of their other options!

Looking for a great place for a group? They have a couple large rooms that would be great for a group of friends to meet and chat the morning away! Be sure to check out the Downtowner the next time you are in the area.

Lafayette-West Lafayette is Home to 2 Elite Indoor Soccer Facilities!

Family Sports Center

Family Sports Center

David, Purdue University student and Visit Lafayette-West Lafayette Intern, shares this blog.

Soccer is easily one of the most popular sports in the world, especially in the USA, with over 3 million registrations. According to a Wall Street Journal article by Ryan Wallerson, “Registration in soccer, basketball, and football leagues have seen a dip in numbers recently.” Even though the numbers have dipped, leagues are still filling up. In Lafayette and West Lafayette, the outdoor soccer leagues are extremely popular and fill up with high numbers pretty quickly. The real question is what do these numerous soccer players do when the brutal winters hit? The answer: indoor soccer!

Lafayette-West Lafayette is home to two different elite indoor soccer facilities; Family Sports Center, which was previously known as the Arnett Sports Center, and the Legacy Sports Club. The Family Sports Center offers two different sessions of indoor soccer for youth, high school students and even a 35 and older group. The second of the two sessions just started on January 25th, 2015. Legacy Sports Club is in already in full swing with their second session of indoor soccer. They take about eight teams a league and they keep their number of leagues limited.

Although these two prestigious venues are local, they draw from far away, as well. Both venues are home to numerous tournaments for travel teams. These tournaments are usually weekend tournaments, but have also seen weeklong events. These tournaments can be a huge boost to tourism here, in Lafayette-West Lafayette. They aid in bringing in overnight stays in hotels and trips to local restaurants. Those hotel rooms and trips to the local restaurants support the local economy and other local infrastructures that see a huge benefit from events like this.

Indoor soccer is a great opportunity for players to keep up with their game. Even though indoor soccer can be a bit different from the game outdoors, it really forces individuals to work on the fundamental skills that are so essential in the game today. These local indoor leagues are giving players a chance to not only stay involved and work on their game, but stay active throughout the year, as well. By staying active and participating in these types of leagues we are promoting a healthy lifestyle for not only the youth, but also the adults that participate.

For more information about these indoor soccer facilities and other sports market information, check out our website at www.HomeOfPurdue.com.

Macbeth, the classic tale of the rise and fall of a Scottish warrior with ambitions to be king, prodded onward by his calculating and manipulative wife is being featured this weekend, February 20-22 at the Nancy T.

Do not miss watching this classic play performed by our very own Purdue University students.

One Size Fits All Comedy Improv is back this weekend at two different locations in Lafayette! Do not miss a night of laughter February 20 at Lafayette Brewing Company and February 21 at the Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. The players flex their comedic muscles for laughs as they make up scenes, games, and songs right on the spot based on suggestions from you: the lovely and well-dressed audience. Ever wanted to see Mr. T sing a duet with a yeti at the Taj Mahal? You just might get your chance – and … there is always a chance you might get pulled up on stage! Much like fragile and delicate snowflakes, no two shows are ever alike – because they are all made up on the spot based on audience suggestions! Come be a part of the fun at their next show!

Southside Diner offers Omelets, Pancakes, Burgers, Tenderloins, Salads and More!

Vanilla ShakeLooking for a great meal at a reasonable price? Check out the Southside Diner. Omelets, pancakes, burgers, tenderloins, salads, soups, pies, milk shakes and more! You are bound to find something you will love at the Southside Diner!

Located off of Veterans Memorial Parkway it’s a great location for those that live or are visiting the south side of town or a nice stop before or after a trip to some of our Southside attractions like Monster Mini Golf, Exploration Acres or Wea Creek Orchard.

Chili with Chicken Tenders

Chili with Chicken Tenders

If you are in the mood for breakfast, I love their omelets! They are a nice size, filled with plenty of vegetables and meat and the eggs are fluffy but thin at the same time, just how I like them. You can actually taste the filling and not just all egg. They are served with potatoes (I like the hash browns) and choice of toast. If breakfast isn’t your craving of the day try one of their salads, soups or sandwiches. They have great burgers and tenderloins. I’d recommend choosing the potato salad as your side; it was fabulous! My husband is also a fan of their chili and, no trip is complete without a peanut butter milk shake for dessert! It is awesome! Beware though; even the small is pretty large. It is so worth it though!

Tenderloin with Potato Salad

Tenderloin with Potato Salad

The atmosphere is fun as well with the black and white tile floors and a counter just like you would expect to find at a diner, although booth and table seating is also available. They just recently expanded as well so now you can take even more of your friends with you! They almost doubled their seating space! The restaurant does have quite a few regulars that the servers know by name and will automatically know their favorite drink and sometimes meal. I know my Dad and his friends are some of the regulars. They are retired now so many “local joints” around town know them.  The group enjoys eating and chatting with friends and what better place to do that than a restaurant where you don’t have to clean up the mess. Ha! They know many of the local area restaurant’s best specials and which day to visit those restaurants to get that special. Oh, to be retired!

Peanut Butter Shake

You will see people of all ages in the Southside Diner and they all have a big smile on their face by the time they leave, a sign of a well-enjoyed meal and friendly service. Check it out sometime! You won’t be disappointed.

Wildcat Creek Winery Brent Russell 2014The winery is perfect as they offer a diverse array of wines to sample (FOR FREE!) and items to purchase: boxes of homemade Wolf’s chocolates, smooth and creamy Fair Oaks cheeses, sweet Two Cookin Sisters Salsa and more. My husband and I usually do a sampling of the wines and whittle down our top picks to one and purchase a bottle to drink at the winery. There is a sunroom in the back of the house (yes, the winery is in a home converted into a winery!) that we enjoy basking on comfortable furniture with the sunlight streaming through the windows.  There is nothing better than a glass of wine, cheese and crackers and a decadent chocolate to leave our taste buds thanking us for the visit!

DSC00736Wildcat Creek is a special place to visit. The customer service is exemplary and is owned by a local couple that are passionate about wine and making the visitor experience a positive one. They and their staff are knowledgeable about the wines and even the most novice wine tasters will feel welcomed and will learn a lot on their visit. And don’t miss…this Valentine’s Day every lady will receive a beautiful, long stemmed, red rose.
