HOMETOWN:   Wolf Lake, IL (Population 300..counting dogs & cats)

CAREER HISTORY:   When I was in high school, my friend’s dad owned a radio station..I begged him for a job and thinking it would be awkward to reject his son’s friend, he hired me.  Since then I’ve worked in Dayton, Tulsa, St.Louis, Sacramento, Kansas City, and now Indianapolis.

FAVORITE LIVE MUSIC VENUE:   Any small intimate venue where I can sit and be sung to..like a coffee shop.  Here in town I love the Circle Theatre and Symphony on the Prarie in the summertime!

FAVORITE CONCERT I’VE EVER BEEN TO:   Garth Brooks.  Even if you’re not a country music fan..the dude knows how to put on a show!

MOVIES:   Groundhog Day is my favorite movie of all time. I also never met a documentary I didn’t like. I recenlty got a great one from the library about asparagus farming. If you check it out (you know you want to), let me know what you think!

TELEVISION:   Seinfeld is the best show that’s ever been on television. There you have it.  The matter is settled.  Other than that.. Modern Family, The Middle, Parks & Recreation, Breaking Bad, and PBS Frontline (see previous note about my love of documentaries).

WEBSITES TO VISIT:   You mean asside from b1057.com? :) I’m semi addicted to Facebook and Twitter. The things people put out there for public consumption greatly amuses me.

LITTLE KNOWN FACT ABOUT ME:  I was named after John Lennon’s son Sean..and I once ran for political office (and lost).

FAVORITE LOCAL RESTAURANTS:  Bluebeard, Yats, Iozzos, Napolese.. I could go on. Seriously. That’s like asking a mother to name her favorite child :)

FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORK:  Getting up in the middle of the night.. oh wait, I thought you said “least” favorite thing.

TYPICAL BREAKFAST:   Old man Fiber cereal and coffee w/ lots of cream and fake sugar!

FAVORITE ROADTRIP FROM INDY:   Chicago. A show at 2nd City + a Portillo’s hot dog + Giordano’s pizza = a great weekend!

LIKE TO COOK?  Yeah..I’m trying to master the art of BBQ on my smoker (low and slow baby..low and slow).

PETS: A golden doodle rescue named Brady.

THREE OF MY EVERYDAY ESSENTIALS:  Coffee, Iced tea, Diet Mt. Dew (I’m very beverage centric).

THREE THINGS TO DO BEFORE I DIE:  1) Go the airport with no destination in mind and just buy a ticket to a random place on the spot. 2) See the Pacers win an NBA championship. 3) Learn how to change a tire (I seriously don’t know how, so if you see me on the side of 465..please stop and help).

Repeal is now open in Fletcher Place. The name pays homage to the repeal of prohibition.. appropriate since the place is adjacent to 12:05, the only solely woman owned distillery in the state of Indiana. The place has a cool vibe! It's in the old Virginia Avenue State Bank...
The house used as the residence of “The Kid” in Purple Rain is for sale. Take a look at the property in the online listing . For $110,000...it has 3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, 1300 square feet, but no word on which rooms Prince may or may not have briefly stood around in back in 1984...
Of the 3 big box stores in Indy, Meijer seems to win out... and in a BIG way (at least in this instance)! Fox 59 took a 4th grade list from Noblesville...and they bought everything on the list at Wal-Mart, Target, and Meijer. Here were their totals for basic supplies: WalMart $...

You may recognize Michael Symon from Iron Chef or ABC's The Chew. Love this guy! He owns several restaurants in his hometown of Cleveland and now Columbus, Ohio, Detroit, and Indy! His new spot here? B Spot (at Ironworks near 86th & Keystone) is now open. Burgers, beer, and...
Hold me closer Tony Danza (Tiny Dancer)! That may no longer be the most misheard song lyric of all time. I'm thinking it's the line in Taylor Swift's Blank Space about "Starbucks lovers." The actual line says a "long list of ex lovers".. but it really sounds like Starbucks...
Lawdy mercy! Deep fried Slim Fast Bars have made their debut at a fair in San Diego. This article gives them 3.5 defribrillators out of 5. Will this be the MUST TRY food at this year's Indiana State Fair? Not for me it won't ;)
I'm in my underpants for yet another episode of Sean In The City ;) Have you ever heard of Cryotherapy? Basically you spend 3 minutes inside a super cold pod and you come out feeling insanely rejuvenated! Some claim it even helps with weight loss, pain management, etc. And there...
