The Hendershot’s-Transmetropolitan lease battle, which has ended with the former leaving its Oglethorpe Ave. location, has been well documented here. Perhaps in response to our intrepid coverage (but likely just because he’s a jokester), Hendershot’s owner Seth Hendershot will hold a taped “press conference” tonight at 7:30 p.m. to formally announce his coffee bar and music venue’s new spot.
Organizers of the “mockumentary-style shoot” are inviting folks to come dressed as reporters and armed with photo equipment (flash is a must), as well as “security personnel in black to stand with” Hendershot as he makes his announcement (“We even got one guy with one of those things for his ear”).
Says the Facebook event page:
Seth Hendershot steps up to the Press Podium and reveals the answer to the question we’ve been asking him for 3 months: What is the NEW Location of Hendershots???? Watch in awe as he answers in a semi-officious outfit.
Of course, you already know where Hendershot’s is moving. Or do you?
Oh yeah, and there’s a Modern Skirts show after the press conference. It’s one of their last.
