The Digest

🎨 Fishers Art Pass

Did you know Fishers has art and murals all over the city? I didn’t.

Hamilton County Tourism dropped their 2024 doable and viewable art pass — perfect timing with the nicer weather. It’s an app you can download to find all the art installations in Fishers (and Hamilton County) while checking-in to gain points. Manage 400 points, and you’ll get a free print by Gabriel Lehman. You'll also get entry to a Hamilton County prize pack.

If you’re a new mover or long-time resident, I can’t think of a better way to get out and about and learn the city. You can pick up a pass and download the app here.

Coming soon: your own family compound*

Kelly Dather is giving an early look at this beautiful home in the Woods at Thorpe Creek in Fishers! This luxury home has 5 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms, spreading more than 5,000 square feet of living space — making it the perfect family compound.

It has everything you’d want in a turn-key home. A renovated kitchen equipped with ultra high-end appliances and a spacious breakfast area. A finished basement with a wet bar, exercise room, and plenty of storage. Plus, it has extensive hardscaping with automatic landscape lighting outside. The best part though? A 3-car heated garage.

This home offers the perfect blend of luxury, comfort, and functionality. Contact Kelly Dather today to schedule a private tour when the listing goes live next week! The Kelly Dather Real Estate Group | KW Indy Metro Northeast | Fishers, IN | 317-496-9308

Rapid Fire Hits

Quick headlines and things to know from all around 🌐 

1/5 ambulance transports in Fishers are from falls. The city recently received a $30,000 grant to support those who need a little help to prevent that ride. If you’re 65 and older you’re eligible to enroll in the Fall Prevention Program through the city. Learn more here.

A “Please boycott White Castle” post on Reddit sparked a thread of other first-hand stories of petty drama in Indy. (link)

Local business

🍌 Rush Bowls

Rush Bowls is a newer franchise in downtown Fishers. They serve blended fruit bowls and smoothies and were recently featured on WishTV. So we had to try ‘em:

I got the PB&J, an acai bowl with banana, strawberry, peanut butter, granola, and jelly. I’ve never had a PBJ that tasted “clean”, but this bowl did. It doesn’t feel like you're eating a bowl of ice cream, which has happened at other acai places. They use whole ingredients and make everything on the spot. I’m a big fan. 👍️ 

If you want to check them out, they’re at 11649 Maple St Suite 123.

What’s going on with Tijuana Flats?

The owner shared they’ve had staffing issues before closing their 96th Street location. The Noblesville store (same owner) has been closed for a few weeks now. Neither Fishers nor Noblesville are on the official Tijuana Flats franchise site. They’ve been a part of the Fishers community for a very long time. Here’s to hoping everything works out for them 🌮
