Some bad news for many excited women around town. From 202 Market’s Facebook page:
“Due to circumstances beyond our control, we are unable to continue with the Chippendales Show scheduled for September 18, 2012. We apologize and anyone having purchased tickets and/or VIP Tables will receive a 100% refund of their money. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.”
Here’s the column that ran about this Aug. 12
I’ll update here when I get more information.
UPDATE #1: I emailed 202′s event planner, Jo Jo Soprano, and he responded with the notice posted above. The only thing he added was, “It was not our choice.”
Whose choice do you reckon it was, folks? The Alcoholic Beverage Control Board’s? The Chippendales?
UPDATE #2: Roanoke.com is reporting that 202 Market got scammed by a fake Chippendales outfit, and when that came out the show got canceled.
UPDATE #3: Email from Jo Jo Soprano: ” I have tickets and posters here with the Chippendales Registered Trademark if you would like to use them to show how fraudulent this company was.”
