Best Evidence that Hoosiers Exist on the North Side 

Broadway Bistro

Four words: Lingerie Show Happy Hour. It takes place every Wednesday from 5 to 7 p.m. at this cheap, large, aesthetically who-gives-a-crap watering hole in the shadow of Interstate 70 amid the tow lots and abandoned buildings of Broadway's north side. While a couple of girls mingle in their skivvies with a few handfuls of local factory and warehouse workers -- Broadway Bistro is largely an after-work hangout, so the vibe is decidedly less aggressive than your average east-side Saturday night -- out back, blue- and white-collars alike can be found playing volleyball on the twin sand courts. The menu is mostly fried, the beers run about $2.50 apiece (or $11 by the bucket), and the waitresses look like they've stepped straight out of a John Cougar Mellencamp video, circa 1985.
