I saw a leaf fall to the ground the other day, I swear.  And the temperatures are expected to drop below 1000° this week so… With that in mind, Olde Mecklenburg Brewery hosts the first of two Mecktoberfest weekends starting Saturday and Sunday, the 15th and 16th. They’ll even kick things off the Thursday night […]

You know it’s serious when even The Wall Street Journal got in on the game, writing an article entitled “The Grown-Ups […]

As it usually does, the conversation starts easily enough. Matt telling charming tales of his daughter’s first two weeks at the University of South Carolina and her pledging a sorority. But it devolves quickly into nothing but Ramona’s unabashed laughter as JD tells a wide-eyed, innocent tale of working in college. At a sorority. And […]

College football is afoot and ESPN’s premier college football pregame show, College GameDay, is constructing a temporary set in the heart of Uptown! As of 5am this morning, workers clad in orange Home Depot hardhats (I might be exaggerating) were putting up the set that former Ohio State Quarterback Kirk Herbstreit, ex-Michigan player and former […]

For the second season of Netflix’s “The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On,” you can see the city since it was shot all over Charlotte.
