We’ve seen several hot chicken places pop up in Indy the last few months, and now there’s one more. Naptown Hot Chicken has opened downtown in the Indianapolis City Market.

Coming up this month, Mansion Society coffee shop, located on the former Central State grounds, will begin serving weekend brunch and, starting today, it will be open on Mondays as well.

In Irvington, Black Acre Brewing is rolling out a food menu, and be sure to check out the outdoor seating area.
