With protests having become commonplace in the last few weeks, a more unique demonstration is scheduled to take place on Friday night.
According to an event on Facebook, a sit-in at TownHall restaurant in Ohio City is scheduled to take place at 5:30 p.m. on Friday night. The event comes weeks after the popular restaurant's general manager, Ryan Hartzell, was accused of making racist remarks on TownHall's official Facebook page.
"Townhall thinks they can deflect their misogynistic, sexist and racist behavior and cover it with Health statements. Let’s give Bobby George a run for his money," reads the event description on Facebook, referencing TownHall's owner. "Event dependent on attendance. Bring your fold up lawn chairs and prep to occupy the cement. Flyers with Townhalls explicit behavior and there attempts to suppress. Our goal is to turn people away at the door!"
As of 4 p.m. on Friday, 25 people have listed themselves as attending the event. It is organized by a group called With Peace We Protest, which has been responsible for peaceful protests across the Northeast Ohio area in the past month.
