Hoosiers give Gisele Bundchen tips for enjoying Indianapolis ahead of Super Bowl

Indianapolis residents don’t just have this weekend’s Super Bowl to be excited about, they can also look forward to a visit from the sexiest, most successful supermodel in the world – Gisele Bundchen. The Brazil-born beauty is married to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who will be tossing the pigskin there on Sunday against the New York Giants

So what can the highest-paid face and figure on planet earth, who jets from Paris to to St. Tropez as often as normal people drive from home to the Piggly Wiggly, do to entertain herself when she hits Indiana's capital? 

We talked to some locals to find out.

“Everywhere is going to be crazy this weekend, so quiet time is probably out of the question. But it will be crazy in a good way,” Indiana Fever forward Tamika Catchings, who was recently named the 2011 WNBA Most Valuable Player, told FOX411’s Pop Tarts. “If anything, Gisele needs to go down to my  favorite  little jazz spot, Slippery Noodle, I eat there during seasons at least three or four times a week during the season. I love the grilled cheese.” 

Catchings has another in with Gisele: she got to know Bundchen’s Brady back in 2004 when she was invited by President George W. Bush to attend the State of the Union address, and the two were seated together.

“He was cool – really laid-back to down-to-earth,” she said. “He came and introduced himself, and we talked about how cool the opportunity to be was and just talked about our sports.”

Morgan Greenlee, a rep for the Indianapolis Convention and Visitors Association, said Bundchen should first get acquainted with the city by taking a $10 Zipline ride.

“Gisele can ride the nation’s longest temporary Zipline in February. 96’ high and 800’ long – towering over Super Bowl Village,” she recommended. “And then pose with the iconic LOVE sculpture at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Gisele can put the photo in Brady’s locker room (which will be the Colts locker room) prior to the big game.”

As for keeping herself beautified, Greenlee suggested the supermodel indulge in an upscale treatment -- or two -- at the Evan Todd Spa & Salon inside the Conrad Indianapolis, and top off her day with a night at Tastings, a wine bar with over 120 wines to choose from.

Karen Clements, resident of Fishers, Indiana also offered her words of wisdom to the visiting catwalk queen.

“Only the most upscale clientele will stay at the Conrad, Omni and the brand new JW Marriot,” she said. “Gisele should dine at St. Elmo’s Steak House, Ocean Aire for seafood, and Palomino if she’s feeling eclectic. She should definitely visit the art museum on 8th Street, and if she is feeling childish (or brings the kids) the children’s museum is awesome.”

Greenlee offered an important tip regarding St. Elmo's. “Don’t get caught by the paparazzi after just having tried St. Elmo Steak House’s famous shrimp cocktail. It is impossible not to make a face,” she cautioned, alluding to its spiciness.

Indianapolis resident Jan Nichols also recommended Gisele visit the city’s most notable landmark. “Gisele needs to go to the Indianapolis 500 Speedway and take a bus around the track,” she said. “It’s really fun.”

Bundchen can also show her “Patriotism” by posing with the IndyCar that has been wrapped in Patriots team branding.

But most importantly, Gisele can expect some good old fashioned friendliness.

“People here are really friendly and helpful,” Nichols added. “So don’t be afraid to ask a local for directions!”
