Martini-Drinking Pink Elephant

I stopped by on 7/22/12 on a trip from Fort Wayne to Carmel, and the elephant was nowhere to be found! I was definitely at the right spot. Liquor store on Broadway next to the Dairy Queen.

The pink elephant is still in good shape. The liquor store is now called "Elite Beverages." Parking in the Dairy Queen lot made us feel a little less sketchy!

Pink elephant with martini glass. Traveling Pachyderm or One Of A Herd?

I posted a picture of the elephant on Facebook after seeing it listed in the Roadside America app. My coworker then sent a photo from the '80s that she thinks they saw in Tennessee. Could there be more than one of these treasures??

[Kylie, 02/26/2012]

Yes! The pink elephant with eyeglasses and a martini was a popular roadside statue. Many of them survive, though most lose their accessories.
