Event: Indiana Humanities Bar Crawl [Indianapolis]

Indiana Humanities puts on a historically-themed bar crawl every summer, and this year they chose “Duck & Cover” and every bar had actors portraying a different scene from the Cold War.

First up for this group, Union 50.


This actor from the historical society discussed his newly acquired (and top secret) government job before being reprimanded by an officer who told him the importance of his confidentiality.

Indy Reads Books hosted women discussing their future careers in light of the Cold War.

St. Mary Catholic Church was a location with actual historical significance. Communist sympathizers were not allowed to meet in the 60s in Indianapolis, and St. Mary open its doors for any group to be given the opportunity to gather.

On top of the Hirons building, a “spotter” kept look out for Soviet planes. He invited the audience to participate in spotter training, while keeping his eye out for Soviet spies in his midst.
