Lunchbox Records moved into their new space on Central Avenue and it is fantastic. Much larger than the old spot which means more room for records. There’s also more room for DJs or bands to perform in the new location. Out of all the Charlotte record stores, Lunchbox is my favorite. They have the best… Read More Vinyl All Day Long

I had an impromptu dinner date with a friend at Viva Chicken, and it was so good, I went back the following week for lunch with another friend. Ordering at the counter isn’t my favorite type of restaurant, but for Peruvian roasted chicken and fried plantains, I’ll do it. From their website: “Our chicken is 100% natural,… Read More Viva Las Chicken
Charlotte’s greenway system is one of the greatest things about the city – at least for active / outdoorsy individuals. The greenways offer trails and asphalt for running/walking, allow pets, and give you the feel of nature while still being in the city. Yesterday, I took a easy three-mile run on Little Sugar Creek Greenway,… Read More Little Sugar Creek Greenway
Finding Ass Clown Brewery in Cornelius was trickier than I thought. It’s in an industrial area that almost looks like an empty strip mall. The inside is a different story. It’s decorated beautifully (for a brewery) and is welcoming once inside. There’s a seating area to the left when you walk in, another to the right… Read More Tap Some Ass Clown
Located right by Southpark Mall is Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar. I would say it’s the perfect place to go after a day of shopping, but you have to time it right or you’ll wait forever. If you’re lucky and have a small party, you might be able to find seats at the bar. This is… Read More A cow and a fish had a baby…
Shoppers all over Charlotte are rejoicing in the fact that they no longer have to go to Concord Mills to get deals, now that the Charlotte Premium Outlets are open just outside of Steele Creek. While the outlets aren’t quite as large as Concord Mills, they offer an openess and feel that cannot be matched… Read More Shop til you drop!
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
Fahrenheit is Charlotte’s latest craze with it’s fancy rooftop restaurant. You have incredible views of the skyline, making for the perfect photo-op before or after dinner (you’ll want to sit down and actually enjoy their creativity during dinner!). Chef Rocco Whalen has some creative ideas when it comes to food, but also knows when to… Read More On top of the World
I moved to Charlotte fresh out of college, wide-eyed and bushy-tailed. A 22-year old with a “real job”, a new car and my chance to explore a city (I was coming from a small town!). I was considered a “young professional” in this city deemed one of the happiest cities for young professionals. Over the past six… Read More A whole new world!
