The Midtown Cinema on Reilly St is not only a great place to see a movie, with prices below typical movie theater prices, and a selection of movies you won't find elsewhere in town (Sue and I saw Bubba Ho-Tep recently); but also has a coffee bar and desert selection to make happy any sweet tooth. The atmosphere is friendly and fun, and your bike may never be far out of view, except when your sitting in the dark gazing at the big screen. The Theater has a bike rack on the side of the store, located clearly away from the street and the parking area, so that your bike is clearly out of the way from other vehicles, yet the location near the front of the store, before the vehicle parking starts, and adjacent to the large picture windows of the theater lobby provide an added measure of protection of visibility for your bicycle.
The Broad Street Market is another good choice for picking up some great produce or prepared foods that are fresh and local. Located at 1233 North 3rd Street, this "Historically fresh farmers market since 1860! Three blocks from the Capitol Complex" is a great place to visit for the sights sounds and smells. Bicycle parking is available via secured rack on the edge of the plaza between the two market buildings. One of my favorite vendors sells spices by weight, and in bulk, so you can get just what you need for that new recipe, without spending $4 or $5 dollars for a whole bottle of a new spice you may not use again.
