A Look Back at the Holidays in Fort Wayne

Another holiday season in Fort Wayne is now in the books for many of us! Today we take a look back at the season that was in Fort Wayne this year! While we couldn’t make it out to everything our area had to offer, here’s what really caught the eyes of our Instagram photographers. The “Snow Days” exhibit is now open at The Conservatory! #DTFW #FortWayne A post shared by Living Fort Wayne (@livingfortwayne) on Nov 21, 2017 at 9:43am PST We started off the Christmas season in November when we checked out the “Snow Days” exhibit at the Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory, an enclosed conservatory located right in the heart of downtown Fort Wayne. Check them out year round for more events and activities. Holiday Pops with @fwphil at @fwembassytheatre! #FortWayne ❄️ A post shared by Living Fort Wayne (@livingfortwayne) on Dec 9, 2017 at 12:37pm PST On December 9 we headed out to the Holiday Pops from the Fort Wayne Philharmonic at the beautiful Embassy Theatre. If you are new to Fort Wayne and love music, the FW Phil and the Embassy are a must-see. @jeffersonpointe is lit up for the holidays! #FortWayne A post shared by Living Fort Wayne (@livingfortwayne) on Dec 11, 2017 at 3:00pm PST Fort Wayne has plenty of holiday shopping options with Jefferson Pointe (along with Glenbrook Square) being two of the largest in the area. Jefferson Pointe was decked out for Christmas with a beautiful display in front of Von Mour. Broadway is waiting for you. #FortWayne A post shared by Living Fort Wayne (@livingfortwayne) on Dec 21, 2017 at 10:51am PST Broadway Street was buzzing with holiday cheer this year from the lighting event at Electric Works to the classic “Christmas on Broadway” tree. Open for Holiday Memories 🌭 A post shared by Living Fort Wayne (@livingfortwayne) on Dec 24, 2017 at 3:50pm PST Fort Wayne’s Famous Coney Island wiener stand got in on the spirit this year by opening a holiday gift shop next door. We hope you enjoyed a white Christmas here in #fortwayne! A post shared by Living Fort Wayne (@livingfortwayne) on Dec 25, 2017 at 3:18pm PST The area (hopefully) enjoyed a white Christmas before the current dip into a deep freeze! We took a quick stroll along Fairfield Avenue in the 46807 ZIP code to take in the scene. #FortWayne was full of new stories in 2017. See which ones our readers viewed the most in our blog today.

Lazer X Is Back!

Lazer X Is Back!

Have you heard? Lazer X is back. Yes, that’s right! For those of you who aren’t familiar, Lazer X was, until recently, closed because of a fire. However, the business has since reopened in the same location, and several improvements have been made. So, since Lazer X is back, let me suggest a few ways you can plan a day around your next intergalactic adventure.   First off, the day my friends and I went we planned on playing around 7PM. Though, keep in mind, depending on the day you go, you’ll want to check what hours are most busy, and go then because the larger the group the more fun you’re going to have! Additionally, Lazer X has daily specials posted on their website for you to check out, and—last side-note—here is a coupon: two games for $10. Moving on, if you’re going to spend an afternoon or evening running around, you’ll need to fuel up prior. Where should you go for a late lunch? We ate at the food court in Glenbrook Square Mall, and then window-shopped and sipped Starbucks. Cebolla’s, which is within walking distance of Lazer X, is another convenient option. Overall, just pick something everyone can agree on! Next, we spent some time playing games in the upgraded arcade at Lazer X while waiting for some stragglers of our group to show. Once everyone was present, we each bought two games. A single game is about 15 minutes long, and SO much fun! Finally, after we finished our second game, my friends and I went to 816 Pint & Slice for dinner and drinks. Although, if you’re not yet hungry you could also go to the discount movie theater in Coventry, Apollo Coventry 13. It’s nice to relax and put your feet up after two games of running around. All in all, with the weather getting colder, this is a great indoor activity most people can enjoy and participate in. So I encourage you to get a group of friends together and...
