Things To Do in Zionsville this Saturday

On Saturday it's supposed to be sunny and in the mid-60s — a perfect day to go to Zionsville and wander around. Even better, it's the day of the Friendly Tavern's annual Chili Cook-off (in the big tent on Main Street, right next to the Friendly) and the first daytime Brick Street Gallery Walk, featuring more than 50 artists stationed at various businesses and at the neighborhood art galleries, of which there are several.

If you go, make sure to at least poke your head in to look at Carter's Ice Cream Parlor in the Carter Toy Museum building. The museum isn't open yet, but the ice cream parlor — with its tin ceiling, paneled walls and tile floor — will give you an idea of what is to come. And their handmade ice cream is really good, too!

From the ice cream shop it's a short walk to Grapevine Cottage next door, so stop in there too. They don't sample wine (their grocery license doesn't permit that), but they do sample some of their gourmet food items on Saturdays, so leave a little room. (If you go, tell ’em Zane sent you — they know me there!)
