‘Circle City Socialites’ Invade the L.S. Ayres Tearoom

Proving once again that the Indiana State Museum is all about “adventure” and investigating all aspects of Indiana culture and history…we hosted a roller derby team in the L.S. Ayres Tearoom this morning. 

The team is about to launch a fundraiser cookbook, so decided to use the historic tearoom as a backdrop for a friendly photoshoot.  (If you’d like to learn about the team, go here.)  NOT a typical day in the tearoom 🙂

  1. Just wanted to say a big thank you to the museum and Tea Room staff to allowing the Circle City Socialites to use your location for the photo shoot. Photos look great. –Bella Blueblood

  2. We had a GREAT time doing this! Thank you for hosting us. I think the person who had the most fun was Smart Bomb’s grandmother who is 95. She was brave enough to come out for this even though she does not speak English and walks with a cane. That’s the spirit of a roller girl! Mucho gusto, Abuela!

  3. Thanks so much for showing us what good hostessing is all about , Tea Room folks! We appreciate your hospitality! (And my mom and I will be back for her birthday tea and a copy of your own cookbook).

  4. YOU GO ISM!

    Reminds me of the old Jim Croce song:

    I fell in love with a roller derby queen
    Meanest hunk of woman that anybody ever seen
    She was five foot six and two fifteen
    A bleached-blonde mama
    With a streak of mean …

  5. This is great, it looks like a fun day in the tea room!

    *and I love their names.
