There's a restaurant chain called I Heart Mac & Cheese and they have opened up two Indiana locations for lovers of mac & cheese.

Mac & cheese is America's number one comfort food. Who doesn't enjoy a nice helping of that delectable side dish? No matter what type of macaroni or cheese you prefer, we can all agree that mac & cheese is a delight for people of all ages. A couple of years ago, we announced that I Heart Mac & Cheese was planning on opening a few locations in Indiana. Thankfully, a couple of those locations have finally opened.

For those who don't know,  I Heart Mac & Cheese is a restaurant where you can customize your own mac and cheese bowls and grilled cheese sandwiches with different cheeses, veggies, sauces, and meats. As I am looking through their menu, my mouth is watering at all of the options. You can choose from signature dishes such as a Chick Parm Mac & Cheese bowl,  Lobster Mac & Cheese, or even a Short Rib Philly Mac & Cheese bowl. Plus they have various unique and delicious grilled cheese sandwiches and loaded tater tot bowls too. I have never been to this place, but I am already in love.

As previously mentioned, there are two locations for I Heart Mac and Cheese in Indiana. One location is in Indianapolis and the other is in Westfield. According to their website, more Indiana locations are coming soon. Soooo I think now is a good time to throw Evansville in as a city that should have its own I Heart Mac and Cheese Location.

I mean think about it, the city is working on building up the Promanade off of Burkhardt Rd. An I Heart Mac & Cheese would be the perfect addition to the area. Who doesn't love mac and cheese, right? Adding this restaurant to the list of developments to that complex is a no-brainer. It would be a hit! Just look at these pictures...

Right now, it's just wishful thinking. However,  you can't rule out the possibility. Consider this my plea to the City of Evansville and I Heart Mac & Cheese. Please open up a restaurant here in Evansville. "If you build it, they will come!"

40 Real Indiana Towns with Quirky, Weird, and Funny Names

Outside the major cities, the Hoosier state is full of tiny little towns you've probably passed through on your way to one of those cities. Most of them are likely 100 to 150 years old, or older, and have been around far longer than the large metropolitan areas such as Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, South Bend, and Evansville. Typically, they were started by early settlers who found their way to the state and decided to make it home. Eventually, others would join them, and a community was formed. Over time, as the surrounding areas grew, most of them were folded into those areas and governed by the nearest city or county's governing body officially making them "unincorporated," meaning they did not have their own formally organized municipal government.

A scroll through Wikipedia's long list of unincorporated communities in Indiana shows several of them have names that by today's standards would be considered weird, quirky, or just downright right funny. These are my 40 favorities.
