Play: Mud Day Happy Hour

The kids will be kicked out of the mud at Fishers MUD DAY and then the mud will reopen for adult happy hour. Play mud volleyball, mud twister, mud tug-o-war and enjoy alcoholic beverages with the 21+ crowd.

Get Physical: Bad Axe

Get out your frustrations with a little axe throwing. I’m not kidding. Bad Axe Throwing is the world’s biggest axe throwing club and offers axe throwing sessions for groups, events, or walk-ins. All necessary supplies are provided, you can bring in your own food and drinks, and safety training is included. Some sessions even include a dedicated axe throwing coach!

Girls Night: Plat 99

The mixologists at Plat 99 inside the Alexander Hotel will create a cocktail perfectly designed for your tastes. Small plates pair with beverages from a range of eras – a history of cocktails – leading up to the current day’s amazing mixes. The chic upscale vibe is the perfect background for a chill chat night or the beginning of a night on the town.

Eat: Pearl Street Pizzeria

This locally owned pie shop first opened downtown and just added a Geist location. While kids are definitely welcome at Pearl Street Pizzeria (they have a kids’ menu which includes gluten free options) it’s pub vibe makes it a great spot for a casual date night or dinner with friends. Handmade specialty pizzas, salad, and sandwiches pair perfectly with a large selection of local microbrews. A private party room with space for 60 makes this a great option for a celebration.

Cheer: Indianapolis Indians

Cheer on our Indianapolis Indians at Victory Field for Indianapolis Indians Sun King Craft Beer Night (July 5th, 12th, and 26th). On select Thursday $20 gets you two craft beers and a lawn ticket. Sip on a WeeMac or a Cream Ale while watching the home time hit home runs!
