I stopped in Belmont on my way back from Crowders this past weekend. What a gem of a downtown that place is turning into. It's also just ITCHING for a commuter rail connection. It's worth at least a trip out there, I was really surprised with how cool it was.
Ha-ha man, we are brutally hard on the Blue Blaze guys. I think this can be a really positive addition to the west side of the city, an area that hardly gets any love. It's not like they're the first company to have a Kickstarter campaign. I say more power to them if they can do it. I'll go drink a beer there after they open.
Panovich actually mentioned this the other day, but I'm glad to see it may be finally becoming a reality. If any of you recall the F2 that hit us a couple years back, the lack of a warning was a direct result of not having adequate radar coverage:
Ah, here we go. This is what I was referring to. Page 8 of the PDF. As I said the last time we mentioned this, I think it would be a signature park for Charlotte and I really like the idea of calling it "Queens Park".
Went to the soft opening for QCBC last night. The place looks great and the chili was solid. It officially opens this weekend. Only one small tv in the corner, that wasn't even on. Looks like it'll be a lot more of a quiet, chill type atmosphere which I really liked. We need more of it.
