January 2019 was colder and snowier than is normal for our area. Our actual average temperature was several degrees colder than the January average according to WLFI-TV meteorologist Chad Evans. Bone chilling artic air blanked our area January 29 – 31 with wind chills as low as -50. These wind chills were the lowest since January 1994.
These cold temperatures cause an increase in your energy usage, often more than in the hot summer months. The reason is temperature variance.
“Modern industrial” is the term used to describe the style
of the Bryant — the Christodoulakis family’s fifth (and
newest) restaurant, after Christos New City Grill, Red Seven and Café Literato. There are exposed pipes, subway tiles
and textured walls, but also curved banquettes, barn-wood walls and plaidshirted servers. Then there’s a giant three-dimensional mosaic of wooden cubes over the main dining room. Even the dishware is a mix-and-match.

It’s cold. You need soup. Not from a can. Not as an excuse to cast-off New Year’s Eve party leftovers. Soup that’s handmade, hearty, robust. And not just warm. No, no. Face-of-the-sun temperatures to fill your stomach, warm your bones, get the blood going, start 2019 off right.

I’ve talked a lot about
of empowering the
serve. To empower
is a recognition that
you, our customers,
are the engine of success. Our role is
to simply provide the necessary raw
materials like electric energy and very
soon, broadband. When you have
better tools at your disposal, more
options with your local power supply,
or integrated energy management
systems in your home, you will have
the capabilities to be more efficient and
productive. We believe you shouldn’t be
limited in how you utilize those tools.
It’s safe to assume most of us refer to restaurants by their names 95 percent of the time. But sometimes, maybe after a long and stressful day, it’s “you know, that place next to the grocery store!” Or in the case of Lafayette’s “Secret Chinese Restaurant” (which I’ve heard will reopen soon after renovations), you refer to it by its unexpected location at the back of a grocery store.
Anyone who appreciates a peaceful stroll in a beautifully wooded setting would rank the Indiana Veterans’ Home grounds among the best locations in Indiana. With 120 years’ worth of well-matured trees across 242 wooded acres, the Veterans’ Home presents unique maintenance challenges.
At Bistro 501, perhaps the only thing larger than the portions are those beckoning windows. If you’ve ever strolled down Main Street in Lafayette, you’ve no doubt gazed through them — curious about the fowl-themed interior décor … and likely envious of the food folks are enjoying inside.
A friend’s recent Facebook callout for favorite eateries yielded some surprising choices and the opportunity to realize that our area’s culinary cachet is, indeed, mighty fine.
