What do Macedonia, Portugal, the Netherlands, Norway and Fort Wayne have in common? They all held some form of busker celebration in June and can be referenced on Busker Central, which provides a calendar of events starring buskers and street performers all around the world. Although not an international event, it is locally renowned and hosted by the The […]
Not long ago, O’Daniel Automart/Mazda asked Fort Wayner’s to write in telling why their mother was special and earn the chance to win a prize (as if having a fantastic mother is not prize enough!). Seventeen finalists were chosen for voting purposes, and their essays were posted on O’Daniel Mazda’s Facebook page in an album […]
Musicians are some of the most glamorized people in society. Many big name stars have thousands of worshipping fans, lots of money, and travel all over the world, but where did they start? For some musicians it takes years to be discovered by a major record label and some never get the chance at all. […]
Last week marked the first annual celebration of Greater Fort Wayne Inc. since the combination of the Greater Fort Wayne Chamber of Commerce and the Fort Wayne-Allen County Economic Development Alliance.

Good people bring out the good in people, and sometimes, the right people can bring good people out of retirement. Nick Buchanan, a Fort Wayne native, returned to the car business after more than a decade away.

On April 26th, the Color Run, which is also known as the “Happiest 5k on the Planet,” brightened the streets of Fort Wayne. What is the Color Run? It is a “unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness and individuality.” Watch the clip for a brief blast of rainbows and runners.
There’s more to Fort Wayne than meets the eye. Aside from the plethora of restaurants, there’s a bubbling creativity fueling the small businesses born here. Jamal Robinson is a local entrepreneur who founded Desiar, a handmade eyewear company with “future classic” style. His vision is clear and he wants to share the story of the […]
Mothers are amazing every day of the year, not just one day in May.

Last Wednesday, Mother Nature piled another 8” of snow on top of us in hopefully (knock on wood), the last winter storm of the season. While many places closed, Spice & Herb Thai Cuisine was a welcome oasis amidst the elements. Something spicy to feel the heat, an almost forgotten feeling, […]
Perhaps you’ve seen them, popping up all over town, buildings being renovated, torn down, and rebuilt. Construction sites are nothing new, and neither is the experience behind Fort Wayne’s CME Corporation. Established locally, CME is a design-builder, general contractor, and construction management firm of about 45 individuals. With such a select staff, all employees are […]
Not long ago, an art show popped up in the old Canton Laundry on Broadway. Theoplis Smith, aka “Phresh Laundry,” is a primarily self-taught Fort Wayne artist and was the star of the exhibition. The “laundry” hanging around the empty building was colorful, bright and brought life back into a long neglected location. The […]
Even before you walk in the door, Chops Wine Bar upsets your expectations. Nestled somewhere between Uncle Bill’s Pet Center and a Pak Mail in The Village at Time Corners shopping center in Fort Wayne, IN, it’s not exactly the type of place you’d expect to find one of the city’s fine dining establishments. Yet, […]
Fort Wayne is crying for definition and identity during the current economic crisis. Since the birth of the Fort Wayne Komets in 1952, this town has been known as a Hockey Town, though it’s a title surprisingly few people acknowledge. Canlan Ice Sports by Lutheran Health Center has answered a challenge by offering a variety […]
If Zach Klein hasn’t found the time to make it back home to Fort Wayne, Indiana much since he left a little over a decade ago, it’s understandable. After all, to say he’s been busy would be an understatement. In the time since he’s been gone, the Bishop Luers alum has graduated from Wake Forest […]
It’s always interesting when an ordinary event imparts extraordinary insight. Like when Sir Isaac Newton watched an apple fall out of a tree and he formulated his theory of gravitation as a result. Todd Hullinger experienced something similar. A bartender at BakerStreet, a fine-dining establishment located in Fort Wayne, IN, Hullinger was invited to participate […]
