#ThursdayDoors — Kincaid’s. Or Not.

April A-Z — K


I had a great plan for K. I would use Kincaid’s storefront.

One of the things people like me complain about is a lack of butcher shops, or even the lack of proper butcher departments in grocery stores — “What do you mean you have no bones?”
There are still a handful of meat markets in the city, and Kincaid’s is one.



Great storefront, agreed?
This particular shot comes with a complimentary gentleman.
On the day I arrived, the door was …

Open doors are definitely doors, but not necessarily what one wants on Thursdays.

So here’s a neighboring door, which I find interesting. NOT a typical door for Indianapolis businesses. The facadeΒ lendsΒ a coastal vacation ambiance to our landlocked city. I was disappointed I could not hear the surf or smell the salt air, but it’s pretty.

    That second door is really interesting. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that style before with a glass bottom panel. Nice!

    Whoa! That door does look beachy, doesn’t it? I like the rocks edging the entrance step. The complimentary gentlemen was such a great touch. I am guessing you told him, “Pretend you are going into the shop…..” πŸ˜€

  3. Gotta love a real butcher shop, and they are getting very rare.

    Open Doors? Ugh. I remember taking pictures inside a bed and breakfast, and the owner offered to let me open or close any doors I wanted to, as long as I didn’t open doors to guest room. I think all businesses should be so accommodating πŸ™‚

    The door next door does seem a bit out of place in the middle of America, but it is welcoming.

    I wonder if there’s a market for a beachy place in middle America. They could have a sound machine that makes ocean and seagull noises.

    Beautiful doors. The second one is unexpected, more beachy than meaty. But hey, why not?

  9. I have great memories of my weekly trip to the butcher’s with my mother. She would order all kinds of things and the butcher often said he wished he could come home with us. Mom used to make something called marrow glaze soup which was heavenly, but when I looked at the recipe I was shocked at how time consuming it was. I have never made it. Fortunately I have access to meat straight from the farm, so I get bones.

      I love how you have that memory. Mine’s at the deli counter with my mother, bein cute and makin the butcher laugh so I could get a free pickle! πŸ™‚
      I usually have to hunt for bones in three or four different places. Even when I find them, they have to be just so or yea big for dog. I do make stock from bones, too, but rarely. It’s a weekend affair, that’s fersure!
      Shall I look up marrow glaze soup?

    Cool Cape Cod type door and an awesome front stoop. Kincaid’s has great steaks. Old gent optional.

  11. That second door is lovely, Joey. If we want bones here in Ireland the butchers shop is the place to go. The meat counters in supermarkets don’t have any, they’re not allowed sell them, apparently.

      Very interesting! I wonder why? Some of the grocers here have some bones some of the time. Meat markets are pretty reliable, although it’s getting harder to find them raw.

    An open door is still a door.
    We’re lucky enough to have two good butcher shops within a short driving distance and only buy our meat from the supermarket when we’re in a pinch and absolutely have to.
    As for the second one, hey maybe pseudo-beachfront property will be your next real estate boom πŸ˜‰

      Omagosh Norm, faux beach is a real estate thing here. Cause lakes. I wrote a post about it a long time ago. Ridiculous living in a pink stucco house on Dolphin Drive on a freakin reservoir in the Midwest. Bleh.
      I’m jealous, butchers are basically a center-of-the-city thing here. Now. Wasn’t always like that…

  14. I like the door, although it is a bit different for this part of the country. However, a little beach ambiance is appreciated. We don’t go to a butcher shop, but we have several places that sell very good meat and I get all my ground beef at Aldi. Yes, Aldi, where I can get organic, grass-fed ground beef for under $6/lb every day and it’s lovely meat. I’ll be using some of that for my meat ravioli filling once I get done making the artichoke filling.

  15. I love the sign!
    I probably wouldn’t go into a butcher shop because after working at a steakhouse I developed an aversion to places that smell like raw meat.

    I like the butcher shop door, even if it was open. It’s merely trying to say “welcome.” As for the other door, I want to sit in one of those chairs outside and soak up the sun…looks so inviting.

    I liked both doors since it is nice to find a reliable and well run butcher shop. Joey, the open door just makes it seem “real” to me! The neighboring door really does seem like it came from a vacation site! I like white Adirondack chairs and the wooden shagged look, along with the real rocks cemented in around the base of the small patio. All around nice choices to balance whimsical with practical doors. πŸ˜‰

  23. Oh! I agree. The neighboring door is rather seaside fare. You find that shingled siding, and Adirondack chair accessory here too on the seaside.

    We have real butchers not far from in two directions. I prefer the one to the south. OMG! They have a wonderful selection of meats and a BBQ going outside every week day! I could be fat so, so easily!!! :_) Only will power is saving my waistline!

    Wow, that IS a seacoasty door! Looks like it should have sand all over. Mom and I used to go to St. Denis Meat Market when we lived in Louisville. We got “city chicken”, which is meat on a skewer, until I found out “city chicken” is veal. Why they call veal kabob city chicken, I do not know, but I’m on a strict cute-baby-animal-free diet, so we stopped getting it. Sure was good, though!
