Best Random Act of Hoosierness

Picture, if you will, this early-summer hoosier tableau: Two men, one white, one black, both plastered, playing Ping-Pong. Without a net. One of them bumps the light switch and then, after briefly attempting to remedy the situation, the pair presses on in darkness. For nearly an hour. Perhaps the décor of this Soulard establishment -- haphazardly strung Christmas lights and water-skis -- inspired the occurrence? "We're not a hoosier bar," rejoins Shanti bartender and server extraordinaire Rockin' Rhonda. "We cater to a fine group of people. Now I need to get goin', because I'm real busy."
