I knew my Grandmother was a trendsetter in her time. She seemed to know who had the best iced tea, the tastiest chicken salad, the hottest coffee and the newest fashionable wear. Several times over the years she told me Irvington, an area she grew up on the east side of Indianapolis, was going to come back and become a hub of culinary delights, evening strolls and late night drinks.
This week my husband and I had a chance to visit with restaurateurs and dine at several places along Washington Street in Irvington. We were reminded of why we love living in a smaller suburban area of Indianapolis: the ability to meet, interact with and enjoy locally owned businesses.
Find more information on all that historic Irvington has to offer on the Irvington Development Organization website HERE, Facebook HERE, and Twitter HERE
Plan your OWN Irvington night out and let me know what YOU did!
