Time Warp Tea Room

The Time Warp Tea Room is not your mother's tea room - unless she rides or races vintage motorcycles. Located on North Central Avenue, in the part of the Old North Knoxville neighborhood that used to be known as Happy Hollow, the Time Warp is cycle friendly. Forget the white linen tablecloths, bone china, and cucumber sandwiches that come with most tea rooms. The Time Warp is decked out in vintage motorcycle memorabilia and serves a mean bowl of chili, not to mention a great cup of coffee or (gasp!) tea. There is often live music on weekends, like the night I took this photo: if you peer into the window, you can see local wordsmith Jack Rentfro at the microphone. It's a fun place to hang out, even if you don't own or ride cycles, and I expect the Honda Hoot folks will be congragating there this weekend.

I clicked on the image and enlarged it and just had a fit poking around looking at all the different places I would have cropped this photo. It could have been magic but it is great as it is and your words tell the story behind it. I like the combination.

Abe - where would you crop? I'm still new to this and would love your opinions so I can experiment.

I would go there. If they have great chili, I would probably go there a lot.

Girl, you have the biker thing going on, now don't you. We just had the Redwood Run roar through town last weekend, but I figured the Harleys had already had their day. ;^) Next, you'll be featuring your tattoos, claiming they belong to someone else.
