Free ride, free chocolate
If a Tuesday morning commute threatens to snuff the romance out of Valentine's Day, IndyExpress is out to sweeten the deal for riders making the trip from Carmel downtown. On Feb. 14, morning rush hour riders "get a free trip downtown, chocolates donated by the Carmel Meijer and the chance to fall in love with the convenience of an Express Bus commute." They're also registering riders for a free giveaway -a donated overnight stay at the Hilton downtown and dinner for two at McCormick and Schmick's. Check indyexpressbus.com for more details. And while we're pimping ongoing promotions, if you love Central Indiana and you have any talent with a video camera, the Metropolitan Indianapolis Board of REALTORS is celebrating its centennial with its HoosierLove.com video contest. Prizes range from $500 to $5,000. Deadline is Feb. 21.
