Over the past few months, eagle-eyed oglers may have spotted a curious sight on some of America’s highways and byways: The Hendrick’s Grand Garnisher, a 38-foot-long, cucumber-slicing vehicle which has slowly been making its way cross country entertaining onlookers.
Most recently, it made a stop in Atlanta, where it greeted Atlas Obscura fans at the historic Houston Mill House for a musical afternoon soiree. Guests were showered in rose petals as they arrived, and then made their way through the winding paths of the old estate to discover various garden party delights.
Performances included the melodic stylings of T.S. Woodward with his friends Cicada Rhythm, and dreamy sets from accordionist Erica Mancini and harpist Ellena Phillips.
There are still a few stops left on the Hendrick’s Grand Garnisher grand tour, so residents of Washington D.C. take special note: Atlas Obscura will be hosting an unusual event in your city next.
