Remember pop-up videos on VH1? You’d sit and watch music videos (hey guys, remember music videos and how they used to play on televisions and stuff?) and fun facts would pop-up on the screen about the making of the video or the artist. Well, Indy can do you one better than sitting on a couch watching a music video. How about pop-up stores? By now, we’re all familiar with food trucks, bringing food to our favorite spots around town, but buckle up for mobile shopping experiences in all of your favorite neighborhoods.

Spring break is quickly approaching, and the heat is on for achieving the perfect
summer body. While the sunshine and blue skies are just peaking through here in Indiana, there’s no better way to get in shape than a hot yoga class. It’s the perfect way to get in shape and achieve peace of mind all while working up a sweat. And maybe, just maybe, if you close your eyes long enough, the heat of the studio can be enough to let your mind escape to an island far, far away.
