The general manager of the Shindig Restaurant, Laurence Vanderwoods, is holding Martinsville‚Äôs first-ever pride event this Saturday. He says he got the idea after attending one in Roanoke last year. The owner posted on Facebook that she has received a good deal of criticism for allowing a pride event to take place. The event starts at 12 PM and will go until Shindig closes at 2 AM. After 6 PM is more “adult themed.” Later in the evening there will be a drag show.
