About the BloggerPatrick Donohue is the proudest Indiana native you're likely to find. Seriously. No one is prouder to be from a state that so many people know relatively so little about than he is. Patrick is a native of Terre Haute and a graduate of the Ernie Pyle School of Journalism at Indiana University. Knowing this, you might think he’d be a huge John "Cougar" Mellencamp fan, a man considered by some to be the Hoosier State's poet laureate. But you'd be wrong. In a major way. | Email Patrick

Currently Listing: Hallucinatory food, a Seattle woman who really likes Starbucks and a ridiculous slam dunk
Food that will make you hallucinate. The list includes fish, caffeine and nutmeg. Yes, nutmeg.
The service, scene and spirits are all on point.
The menu looks good, the meat and beer all local.
Heck, even the lighting is pretty good, dim enough to be intimate but not cavelike.
This is an otherwise great bar or restaurant and could easily become your local, a place you and your friends while away misguided nights, eating and drinking your paychecks and solving the world’s problems by last call.
Or, at the very least, deciding once and for all which “Saturday Night Live” cast was the funniest.
But something is missing. Something feels off.
Is that Journey?

It’s not often that a dialed-in pop culture aficionado such as myself allows an album, book or movie to fly under the radar or slip through the cracks.
But it does happen, as it did recently with director Colin Trevorrow’s “Safety Not Guaranteed.”
I vaguely remember hearing about this film as it toured the festival circuit last year, but seeing as it was given what could be described as a limited release, it quickly fell from my consciousness.
It’s a new year, and for a lot of people that means making promises to themselves they have no intention of keeping.
But not me.
Instead of promising not to swear (why the *$%# would I ever do that?) or to get excited about random, otherwise meaningless holidays (Secretary’s Day Party at my place, y’all!), I’m resolving to do more of the stuff I already love doing.
And I’m not alone.
