Indy 500, 2014-- Part 16: Still On Main Street, the Lincoln Tattoo

We walked the whole length and enjoyed seeing an Indy car leave one of the buildings and drive around, eventually past us on Main Street.  It was a two-seater and one a person could pay to ride to get that "Indy" feel.

Walked all the way to the end of Main Street and along the way saw Charlie Brown's, a neat restaurant where I met and had breakfast with the Bremmers several years back before an American Road Magazine road trip along the National Road.  It was closed at this time as I guess open just for breakfast and lunch.  Must-eating if you're in town.

Nothing was going on outside BBQ and Bourbon so went inside and found it to be a very woodsy kind of place.  We saw one guy with an Abraham Lincoln tattoo on his arm.  That is definitely one tattoo you wouldn't expect to see.  Had to ask why, and the guy said that he really admire Abraham Lincoln.  I guess so.

Yesterday, we were told that the band was to start at 4:30 PM today.  They still wren't set up when we left, considerably after that time.

Walking along Main Street and back to the RV was when we started seeing all those young gals wearing short dresses with cowboy (girl) boots.  Just didn't look right, but I suppose Jason Aldean. whose concert they were heading to, would say it was alright.

Overall, the Main Street Restoration project has been underway 6-8 years now and what has been finished is looking good, but there is still a ways to go with it.

Good Times on Main Street.  --RoadDog
