• Friday night: I’ll wind down from a long week with a pedicure at Evan Todd Spa & Salon (50 W. Washington St., www.evantoddindianapolis.com), allowing plenty of time to enjoy the pool, sauna, steam room and showers. Dinner is a short walk away at Napolese (30 S. Meridian St., www.napolesepizzeria.com) for buffalo margherita pizza, arugula salad and a nice glass of crisp Pinot Grigio.

• Saturday morning: The day begins with an early morning trip to City Market (222 E. Market St., www.indycm.com) for fresh eggs and produce. I’ll snag a Market Street crepe and an Intelligentsia pour-over coffee from 3 Days in Paris (marketfreshcrepes.com).

Leslie Bailey’s”Perfect Weekend” begins at Locally Grown Gardens 1050 E. 54th Street. Great place to hide-a-way. Shop. And have a piece of great homemade pie. (Photo: Frank Espich/The Star)

• Saturday afternoon: Browsing the French homewares at Locally Grown Gardens(1050 E. 54th St., locallygrowngardens.com) is a highlight when running otherwise mundane weekend errands. Take home a sugar cream pie.

• Saturday night: It doesn’t matter if I’m in the mood for meat, seafood or a vegan dish, because Tinker Street (402 E. 16th St., www.tinkerstreetindy.com) has it all. After dinner, it’s time for a martini and a show at The Cabaret at the Columbia Club (www.thecabaret.org).

• Sunday: OK, maybe I had two martinis. Nothing cures me on a rough morning like fried chicken and strawberry waffles with peach butter for brunch at Maxine’s Chicken and Waffles (132 N. East St., www.maxineschicken.com). Now refueled, I have energy to spend the afternoon strolling shops on Mass Ave.
