Just a quick note while awaiting my flight back to DFW.
My daughter and I traveled to Indy over the weekend for her to participate in the Nike Midwest Volleyball Tournament.
What a great downtown area! I have never seen anything quite like it. Multiple hotels, a Convention Center, a shopping mall and restaurants galore all joined together by skywalks!! Such an incredible concept developed by White Lodging and with the weather being what it was, we were happy to be able to walk inside wherever we needed to go. Hats off to White Lodging!
We stayed at the JW Marriott and it was a wonderful experience. Great customer service, really comfy beds and the food was divine! Our favorite was Osteria Pronto. Executive Master Chef Baglio Rino is brilliant. The best Eggplant Parmesan I have ever eaten in my life! It was truly as beautiful as it was delicious. My girlfriend has the Calamari and I have to say, I have never seen Calamari look that amazing...wish I had a taken a photo for you but I was in food Heaven and could only think of food!
With all the restaurants close by, we dined at Osteria Pronto three times and even ordered "to go" once because my daughter was increased with their spaghetti. Last night she ordered the filet and said it was the "best" steak she had ever eaten; and this girl eats a lot of steak.
If you are headed to Indy, I highly recommend the JW Marriott and Osterio Pronto. Both are exceptional experiences. Congrats to Indy for this wonderful concept too!
Oh, and as for Volleyball, it was great too! The girls played some of the best VB They have played this year and had a great tournament. Great job girls!
Well, time to board for DFW. Have a great Monday!
