I always run into something interesting in the Urban Times:
* Elizabeth Garber is expanding The Best Chocolate in Town into the space next door increasing her square footage and workspace. She's also adding pastries from Rene's in Broad Ripple along with gelato and coffee. Renovations were scheduled to be finished by this weekend.
*Look for a new Thai restaurant to go in the long-vacant Bistro 936 space (nee Peter's) at 936 Virginia Ave. Target opening October 1. (I always wanted to have a party in that brick downstairs cellar-bar.)
*Mark your calendars for the Market-to-Market ball benefiting the City Market on Sept 20. Tickets for the black-tie optional dinner dance are $150. RSVP to event chair Michael Halstead, 317.684.1431 by this weekend.
