I got this email in my inbox today:

I'm a Bengals fan from Cincinnati, who also roots for the Colts and despises the Patriots. Anyway, I'm bringing a huge Colts fan to the game against the Patriots game this Sunday, and I've been trying to look up things to do before the game. I've been searching to find a few ideas.
I don't think we are going to do the whole tailgating thing but were looking for a restaurant/sports bar we could watch some football in before heading to the game. Is there anything within walking distance of the stadium, anyplace you'd recommend?
I'm not sure if this is the right place to send an email asking for tips but I can't find much more info anywhere else.
We'll forgive the whole "Bengals fan" thing, because there isn't much of a rivalry there (except for week 4 of every preseason). Besides, as everyone knows, I'm generally down with the 'Nati. As long as Rob and company are wearing blue on Sunday night, that's all that matters.
I gave Rob some ideas, but seeing as how I haven't exactly 'been in town' in the past year, I figured it would be a good idea to open the floor to suggestions. The great part about downtown Indy is that there is lots to do. If you have a good hangout spot or idea in Downtown, leave a comment. Rob will be checking them.
