The SEXY List…The BEST OF INDY 2010!!!!

It’s that time again when we gather our notes from the last year and sit down and decide who deserves the honor of the “BEST OF INDY 2010”!!! During the past year, we’ve watched closely to make sure that we are constantly giving good recommendations to people on the best places to eat, party and relax. We’ve even gone so far as noting small differences from one place to the next that really help to make the whole experience for the patron all the better. We’ve gone incognito to several parties or clubs and we’ve even caused some drama just to see how it was handled. We’ve learned that small things, such as the way a door person treats you to willingness for servers to go the extra mile, really do make a difference. Some may question our tactics or think we are too harsh or too kind in our reviews, but be sure of one thing…nothing, NOTHING we do is by mistake. It is all for the greater cause of giving our readers and listeners the greatest experience possible in Indianapolis and helping to make this city as exciting and enjoyable as possible. So now, we give you the SEXY list…the BEST OF INDY 2010!
