Passion8 has been one of my favorite restaurants in Charlotte for the past several years. While the outside may lead you to believe it’s not fancy (an old brothel), the inside will surprise you with an intimate setting, creative dishes and a farm-to-table experience. While technically in Fort Mill, I would consider this one of… Read More Passion8 Bistro
Nikko has been one of my favorite sushi places since arriving in Charlotte. As long as you don’t go on Friday nights, you can have a pretty peaceful dinner. On Fridays, it gets a little rowdy with tambourines, club music and lights. We went for dinner on a Sunday and the place was practically empty. Normally, I… Read More Nikko Nom Nom Nom

Even if you’re not into adventurous activities, you can sit on the lawn and listen to music on Thursday nights during their… Read More Thrill seekers unite!

We had browsed the menu before going in and decided we would share some tapas. The beer list is overwhelming in a good way. Lots of… Read More A central location for pints
Sunday, we chose to go bowling at Park Lanes instead of spending the day in the heat. This was my first time inside the bowling alley and I was surprised at the modern decor! I was also surprised at how expensive it is to bowl. For 2 games and 2 pair of shoes, it was… Read More Roll Ten
