The reviews are in - the North Star Roller Girls were a hit at Yelp’s Drive In on October 7
Yelp’s Drive In was a 50’s themed bash put on by Annie (Annie D on Yelp) and her team. Assembled were a wide variety of eats and beverages from local vendors showcasing the best that Minnesota has to offer in fun food and drinks. The North Star Roller Girls were on hand to support the event and help out as needed – in full gear and skates!
Mix the food, beverages, great vintage 50’s style party atmosphere with the enthusiasm of the hundreds of “Yelpers” that made the RSVP list and the results were fabulous! The weather was great, everyone had fun in the Photo-booth, and the costumes were dead on the money, Daddy-O! If you were one of the over 400 people on the waiting list and couldn't make it in, look for the next Yelp event and RSVP early, it fills up fast. Who knows, we might be there too!
Hat’s off to the organizers for putting on such a great event!

Minneapolis Hearts Us!
Can you imagine anything better than skating up Hennepin Avenue, at night, wearing glowing red dreadlocks and flashing skull lights as part of the biggest summer festival in Minneapolis? We didn't think it got any better than that, until we won an award for it! Yes, the North Star Roller Girls received the Aquatennial Award of Excellence for their performance at the 2011 CenterPoint Energy Torchlight parade. The Aquatennial organizers actually referred to it as an "exceptional performance" but we want to be careful about bragging.
The North Star Roller Girls would especially like to thank Aaron Archer for use of all the fantastic LED lights that we wore in the parade which he donated in honor of his late wife, Shannon. What a beautiful memorial Aaron – the North Star Roller Girls salute you both!
