As for bar food. Being from New Haven, I'd HIGHLY RECOMMEND Rack and Helen's. It's right downtown new haven on broadway across the street from the post office. (it just so happens that my office is right there too, so we eat there a lot). I know the owner personally, he's a great guy and the food is awesome. If you're in New Haven and wanna stop by, do it!

Josef Decuis is a 5 star restaurant ... or at least I thought it was. I know technically, it's not in FW, but it's close enough.

When I went to college, I used to frequent Cheddars ... still there?

I believe Cheddars is still around, I've never been there.

Where's Josef Decuis at? There was just something in Business People monthly about the restuarants in ft wayne, there are no 5 stars in or around NE indiana.

I don't think there are very many interesting places to see in Ft. Wayne. If there are, I must have missed them in all of my previous trips there.
Hate to say it but I would rate it as a dull city to visit. Chicago and Indy offer much more.

What did you drive around on I69?

The Corvette museum? The Zoo? downtown attractions such as the firefighters museum?

Glenbrook or Jefferson pointe mall? Embassy theatre? Komet Hockey, Fury basketball? Wizards baseball?

Ft Wayne has nothing to offer? The only thing Indy has to offer over Ft wayne is an NFL team and a mall that's above a downtown intersection. Which, last time I was there, wasn't that impressive to begin with. (it was nice, but normal at best)

I admit Ft Wayne isn't anywhere close to being the best place for a visit... but there is plenty to do to keep you busy, especially if you have a family.

Hate to say this but it is an old and encrusted dying town! But, on 24 is a nice outdoor mall. they have a Biaggi's restaurant (upscale Italian) and then O Charleys' which is a good place to eat lunch, Logan's a great steak house chain. And, of course there is the enclosed Glenbrook Mall out north.

if anyone can get all excited visiting Ft Wayne, I'd like to see that person.

You can say it, but you would just be expressing an opinion... and not fact.

It really depends on what type of entertainment you'd like.

A trip to the embassy and some fine dining. We have that.

Family fun at a baseball/hockey/basketball game with a trip through the mall and the food court? We have that here.

Getting some wings at Hooters and then a trip to some establishments for some Adult entertainment? We have that.

There is plenty to do here, you just have to know where to go and what to look for.

okay James. I admit that I am not a local there and probably would have to spend more time going around the town to get better acquainted with it.

I appreciate your honesty here. I really don't think Ft Wayne is the end all be all of cities - it really isn't. But there are a lot of great places to visit where you could spend at least a full weekend, if not more and never run out of things to do and enjoy. There is every type of entertainment here you could imagine... aside from pro sports.

you're an effective promoter of Ft Wayne and should be elected Mayor.
