Yeah, after discussing it at some length with the other party involved (who is a little more familiar with downtown Indy than me), we'd probably split the difference and walk over and cab back. She figured it would be about a $10 cab ride based on previous years. I can walk that far, I just don't know that I want to walk back with a bag full of fruit. Especially since, hey, new grocery store in different country, we'll probably spend an hour wandering around and giggling at all the weird and unfamiliar packaged goods. Because we're a little strange that way.
I was mostly trying to figure out whether or not I was reading the bus map *wrong* because it seemed weird that there was no actual way to get there from here to speak. It made no sense to me to walk 15-20 minutes to take a bus for five and still end up a block away, but I guess that's really the way the buses are routed. Wow, I though OUR bus service was cracked.
When they were there last in 2014, as people from outside the country, they were not aware of the supermarket. It wasn't particularly well promoted. When she asked around to other congoers in 2014 about where to get fresh fruit nearby (remember, after the closing period of the City Market), she was told there was a Marsh on Meridian street, a $30 cab ride away, so she packed a bunch of granola bars in her luggage. So yeah, not exactly well publicized to con goers :)
Also, remember, we're from Canada. Signing up for delivery services usually requires and American address or an American credit card (hello HBO Go...grrr) or both. And signing up for US Amazon Prime to save on $20 in cab fare seems a little extreme, even for us. *lol* It is not, as I used to say when I worked at AT&T the signing up, it's the remembering to opt out early enough to not get nailed for the first month's payment. Too much work. :)
Thanks for the input folks. This is really helpful.
