Tribes: Ascend (Thursday) – The classic PC shooter franchise Tribes is back as a free-to-play multiplayer-only offering, brought to you by the creators of third-person action MMO Global Agenda.

Sara Juli explores money in her unique performance piece ‘The Money Conversation’ By Christian Sorrell • christian@youarecurrent.com

Even the most veteran of theater-goers probably has not ever seen a show quite like Sara Juli’s “The Money Conversation.” The show’s creator, Sara Juli, is a dancer and choreographer who has invested not only her time and talent into the performance, but also her savings. The show examines one’s relationship with money by directly giving the audience some difficult choices. “I bring $5,000 in cash on stage and, during the course of the show, give out the cash to different audience members. Some people receive $20, some $50, some $300, some lots more. Once the performance is over, I leave, and people who have received money must decide what to do with it,” said Juli. “They can return it, or they can keep it and no one will stop them. They just need to be aware if they do take the money, they are taking from my life

◆ WHAT: “Sara Juli’s The Money Conversation” ◆ WHEN: Saturday, 8 p.m. ◆ WHERE: The Studio Theater (355 City Center Dr., Carmel) ◆ COST: $38 ◆ INFO: Visit currentnightandday.com savings. The choice is up to each person. It creates an interesting tension that becomes part of the performance.” Juli’s work may seem as if it stemmed from the recent economic downturn, but in fact, it stemmed from a time in her life when she was facing marriage. “I created the piece five years ago, before the economy totally tanked, as a way to personally reassess my relationship to money, but the declined economy of recent years just makes the piece all the more relevant.

reminds us we all have a pretty messed up relationship with money. We have work to do when it comes to understanding the value of money and how we can approach it from a healthier standpoint.” By introducing cash into the performance, Juli has taken the conversation from the hypothetical to the real. “Performing and touring this piece as much as I have is a constant reminder of the power of money. It brings out the best and the worst in people, and I love that about the show. People do and say strange things during the show. People judge me as a person as a way to justify their behavior. I hear things like, ‘I need the money more than she does,’” said Juli. “Some people take the money. What do they do with it? Do they go buy a pair of $300 shoes? Do they put it in their bank account? Pay it forward? How people respond to the show is almost more interesting than the show itself.”

Follow the North Star (Friday and Saturday) – You will experience what it was like to seek freedom on the Underground Railroad. Be changed forever as you encounter the fears and challenges faced by those on the path to independence. The program costs $20 and lasts 90 minutes with groups leaving every 15 minutes starting at 6:30 p.m. at Conner Prairie Interactive History Park (13400 Allisonville Rd., Fishers). “Lockout” (Friday) – In this science-fiction action film starring Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace, a man wrongly convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage against the U.S. is offered his freedom if he can rescue the president’s daughter from an outer space prison.

Reviews “The Iron Lady” • PG-13, 105 minutes

Commentary by Chris Lloyd

not delusion; they both acknowledge he’s dead. It’s just neither one wants to lose whatever argument they’re having.

Like a lot of biopics I see starring a tremendous actor in an Oscarworthy turn, the performance trumps the movie around it. Stars by their definition get the most screen time and the best lines of dialogue. But when it’s a film about a historical figure, with lots of big events and emotions, oftentimes the performer can be so dominant the story can’t get any air. Streep's performance as Thatcher dominates the film. “The Iron Lady” follows in this tradition, featuring Meryl Streep in a role so meaty – BritIn the end, “The Iron Lady” is worth watchish Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher – the rest ing just to see the way Streep nails the iconic of the movie occasionally turns to mush.

Kid Icarus: Uprising soars on weird and wacky wings Commentary by Christian Sorrell

Since the Nintendo 3DS was announced, we’ve been teased with bits and pieces of a new Kid Icarus title, originally slated as part of the system’s launch lineup. More than one year since the system’s launch, Kid Icarus: Uprising has finally made its way onto store shelves and into gamers’ hands. The game’s developer, Project Sora, is headed up by Masahiro Sakurai of Super Smash Brothers fame, a designer known for taking his time to perfect titles instead of following deadlines. Thankfully, all that extra work paid off in Uprising. What comes out of this lengthy development cycle is one of the strangest and most awesome Nintendo titles I have ever played. Much more than the sum of its part, Kid Icarus puts you in control of the franchise’s hero Pit, an angel unable to fly on his own, who is pitted against Medusa in a rehash of the original NES game’s conflict. In regard to gameplay, the levels are split between 3-D flying and shooting sequences a la Panzer Dragoon and on-ground levels that keep the shooting mechanic while adding a bit of brawling to the mix. While the gameplay is fun and the story is acceptable (but nothing special), the game’s strongest aspects are iots writing, characters and overall wacky atmosphere. Whether Pit is directly addressing that he is in a video game

Uprising was developed by the studio of Masahiro Sakurai, designer of previous hit franchises like Kirby and Super Smash Brothers.

or he finds himself wielding a massive club that looks exactly like a Skyscraper (complete with spotlights), Kid Icarus: Uprising is rarely boring. With a full multiplayer suite as well, you could easily pry more than 100 hours from this game. It is equal parts funny and fun, and can be played multiple times, which, for modern handheld games, is a winning combination. Kid Icarus: Uprising is available now for the Nintendo 3DS. The game retails for $39.99 and includes the 3DS stand and one pack of AR cards. Christian Sorrell is an avid gamer, film fan and the editor of Night & Day.

Mercedes W210 E-Class systems in these cars can get exponentially out of control very quickly. Values are low at this point, usually less than $5,000 for Sedans and less than $10,000 for older Convertibles, so this is certainly an important consideration.

The E-Class name first appeared in the U.S. with the face-lifted W124 for the model year 1994. The W124 was introduced in 1986 but continued with the older naming convention until 1993, when all Mercedes-Benz models switched to a new system – E320 instead of 300E. Formerly, the E extension had indicated fuel injection, but since all Mercedes were injected by the time of this change, it worked. Mercedes now has the C-Class as entry level, the E-Class as mid-level and the S-Class as Executive Express, with a few others thrown in to meet market demands, and confuse the heck out of casual observers. The W210 E-Class, launched in 1996, brought the mid-size Mercedes firmly into the upper end of the luxury market. Though six-cylinder models were still offered, the four-light front-end and high prices moved the car upmarket. In September 1999, the W210 E-Class was face-lifted. This included visual, mechanical and quality improvements over the earlier versions. The W210s are the cars most likely to have long-term value. Their stylish front-end treatment is more timeless than the W124 and also more unique. The W124 looks like a smaller version of a real Mercedes, while the W210 stands alone. The most collectible models will be the Convertibles and Coupes, although the Diesels and Estates have a cult following. While Mercedes parts are not cheap, they don’t tend to break very often, so maintenance isn’t as expensive as one would think. However, always be wary of cars that fallen into disrepair, or have not been properly maintained. Having to repair multiple

“Winning” is Gary Brackett’s story about how he became a Super Bowl champion, the captain of the Indianapolis Colts, the captain at Rutgers and the Glassboro Bulldogs (his high school football team in New Jersey). It’s also the story about the people who helped him along the way. It is a great read and will leave you highly motivated! Brackett’s family instilled in him a positive mindset and a strong work ethic. His mother, who taught him about faith and the power of prayer, would say, “Attitude is altitude.” Brackett believes your perspective on life determines the amount of success you have in it. His father required the ability to overcome difficulties. He required effort rather than excuses. He would say, “A smooth mountain is hard to climb.” One of my favorite quotes is, “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” Brackett’s life has not been easy. He has faced challenges, worked hard and lost many people close to him.

His coaches encouraged him with goal setting. His coach at Rutgers told him, “Whether you think you can or can’t, either way you’re right. Whatever you spend most of your time thinking about, that’s what you are going to spend most of your time portraying.” Brackett says, “We must never limit ourselves to the lower bar right in front of us. We must reach higher than we think possible, to that level that seems out of our reach. We can only rise to the level of our expectations. Too often kids don’t know or care what they want to do with their lives. Kids who have no plans will get nothing.”

Should-Be-Illegal Oven Barbeque Ribs

Add olive oil, garlic, red pepper flakes and shrimp. Season with grill seasoning or salt and pepper. Cook shrimp for 3 minutes or until just pink. Toss with lemon zest, juice and chopped parsley. Remove shrimp to a serving platter, leaving the garlic in the pan. – Food.com

Ingredients: 3 pounds pork back ribs, 1 (8-ounce) jar honey, 1 teaspoon paprika, 1 teaspoon chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 2 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon celery salt, 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper, 1 medium onion, grated

Recommendation: Ravenswood Old Hill Ranch Zinfandel 2008, $56. Most assuredly, Zinfandel is a rib’s best partner. Jammy, dark and fruity – often with loads of black pepper and spice – it is sweet without really being sweet, and that helps with a tangy barbecue sauce. Watch out for wine with a high amount of alcohol as it might push the heat in the sauce over the top. Available at specialty shops and online. – Myrecipes.com

The Local focuses on fresh ingredients and artisan spirits Commentary by Rachel Ferry

I run local, work local, latte local, drink local (beer), so it only seemed appropriate I visit the pub and eatery at 146th Street and Gray Road, appropriately called The Local. Once seated, we ordered cocktails. I chose White Sangria made with a crisp white wine and St. Germain liqueur, which gave it the perfect summertime feel. Dining with friends is a bonus, as there are more dishes to sample. We started with the Poutine, a Canadian-inspired dish of fries covered in gravy and cheese. It was quite simply delicious. The gravy with tender chunks of beef could be a dish of its own. We also had hot wings and tater tots. Both of these dishes were tasty, and as appetizers, very shareable. The portions at The Local are sizeable. Our main dishes included three sandwiches served with a side (in this case, garden salads). We had anticipated more dishes to choose from, but the appetizers were incredibly filling. The turkey Reuben was a very well-balanced sandwich with a kick in the sauce, oven-roasted turkey, homemade kraut and sriracha 1000 island. The Chef ’s Snack sandwich’s fried egg added ◆ WHAT: The Local Eatery & Pub ◆ WHERE: 14655 N. Gray Rd., Westfield ◆ INFO: Visit currentnightandday.com www.currentnightandday.com

to the hot ham and cheese was amazing. As my friend said, “If the chef is hungry and this is what he eats, then that’s what I’m ordering.” The lamb burger could be in a category of its own. Prepared perfectly to be juicy and flavorful, the burger was topped with sautéed onions, peppers and a delicious rosemary tomato jam. Because The Local focuses on fresh, regional ingredients, there does seem to be a premium price associated with it. But, it is worth it.
