Fun in the Fort…

I love Downtown Fort Wayne! Kiara, Desi, and I (Carrie) went to lunch today at this great pizza place downtown. We usually go out on Fridays as a group and almost always we end up at Pint and Slice. Somehow we ended up discussing all the fun things that Fort Wayne has to offer. I was thinking maybe I could share some of them with all of you. Maybe if you plan on coming to Art Fair this year you can check some of them out while you are in town. Sorry, I have AF on the brain also. It is kind of hard not to think about it this time of year when you work in Platinum and see all the amazing pieces!!!! Plus Andrea showed me her design for the AF admit ticket this year, it is incredible. I loved it!

Some of you might be wondering whether or not you want to bring the kiddos. I know they would have a great time at the pre-party and if you could bring along Dad or a babysitter for Saturday(so you can shop and not have to worry about the kiddos) we have a really great Children’s Zoo. I always have a great time when I take the kids. There are over 1,000 animals and fun rides for the kids. There is also a nice park that you could go to for lunch if you want to pack a picnic lunch. We have Science Central which is a great place for kids to learn and have a great time. On Saturday night the kids could go to a Tin Caps game. They are our local baseball team and the Stadium is amazing. It is also within walking distance of the hotels.

Now if you like to eat as much as I do then you need to check out Pint and Slice. It is on Calhoun street right in the middle of the city. If you plan on staying at one of the Hotels in the city then you will be  within walking distance. I’m thinking that maybe after a morning of shopping you might want to grab a slice of pizza for lunch. We also have the Friendly Fox which is on South Wayne. The have great soups and sandwiches. My all time favorite is the Mad Anthony Brewing Company…they have the best Vegetarian hamburgers in town (don’t worry the have great beef one’s too for all you carnivores out there). For breakfast Cindy’s Diner is a must. Be warned though, it is tiny in there (I think only about 15 bar stools), but so worth the wait.

Regardless of what you do in your spare time while visiting in Fort Wayne I am sure that you will have a great time. I know that I am looking forward to meeting all of you and spending some time with your families.  Art Fair will be a great time for families or just a great girls weekend whatever you decide to do.

Hi Carrie – I love the pic of you and your daughter….so cute. I love your little notes when you send the Plat packages – it really personalizes it! I won’t be at AF, but keep blogging on what’s happening.

What a GREAT post! I’m not lucky enough to head to AF this year, but am thinking my family needs to get there for a long weekend of Ft. Wayne food & fun!

Agreed! Born and raised in Ft. Wayne 🙂 We live in Charlotte now, but my dad just reminded me last night that we will be in town during Art Fair!!! YAY!!! Don’t forget Casa’s, the BEST Italian restaurant (their salad is tdf). The zoo is awesome. Every time I take my kids to a zoo anywhere else, I am spoiled because nothing compares to the Ft Wayne zoo.
