Have you heard about the newest steakhouse in Indy? Red the Steakhouse, named one of America's sexiest steakhouse, opened a few months ago on Maryland street and they are upping the game for steakhouses in the city. Also, Keep Indianapolis Beautiful and Random Acts of Flowers are on the show to talk about their organizations and how you can help.
Red the Steakhouse opened at 14 W. Maryland Street in May, just a few blocks away from the Indiana Convention Center, and have made a name for themselves in just a few months. The Indianapolis location of Red the Steakhouse is the fourth location - with two in Cleveland and one in Miami.
Certified Angus Beef Prime steaks are used at Red the Steakhouse and everything is made from scratch. In fact, Corporate Executive Chef and Managing Partner Peter Vauthy even uses his grandmother's meatball and red sauce recipe, his dad's green bean recipe, and the cheesecake recipe comes from a New York Italian market that Vauthy visited as a kid.
Some specials to look out for at Red the Steakhouse:
- Thursday night "Champagne and Oysters"
- Wine Dinner - August 23rd featuring Justin and Landmark Vineyards - 5 courses for $99
- On Colts games, they'll be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. with a special football menu and drink specials
- Devour Indy is coming up and they have a great 3 for $39 menu

Random Acts of Flowers looks to improve the emotional health and well-being of people in health care facilities by delivering recycled flowers. Their team drives all over the state to pick up recycled flowers from grocery stores and florists and brings them to their Broad Ripple facility. And in only 10 months of operation in Indy, they have delivered more than 14,000 floral arrangements to patients in hospitals, nursing homes, and hospice facilities.
How can you help? Lindsay Potter, the Program Director for Random Acts of Flowers, says they are always needing vase donations and they are looking for company sponsors for their delivery cards.
On August 31, they will be hosting their first Flowers After Hours event from 5-8 p.m. Tickets are $50 a person and will include a floral design lesson from a local florist, one floral arrangement to take home, as well as snacks. This event is also BYOB - wine or beer.
