  2. I made reservations for Luciano's on Thursday night on Open Table only to find out Thursday afternoon that they weren't open yet. They called me and apologized and offered me a reservation for Friday where our meal would be complimentary. So we obviously were happy about that, and went there tonight instead. It was the preview night for invite-only guests, so we felt quite lucky not only to get a free dinner, but to try it before anyone else. Apparently their April 22 opening was missed, as they said that this was their first night of any service at all. The atmosphere has been totally trans

  3. Pimping my new town here a bit. Recall that I had nearly moved to LA before deciding on Charlotte. Honestly, the drive up Rea Rd. > Colony > Queens/Kings just blows Beverly Hills (and Bel Air) out of the water.

  8. I think we're taking valuable real estate and selling its soul to the devil. A 30-45 year commitment? We're locking up prime real estate and assuring that these areas will remain low income for the quarter to half century? Wow. That is short-sighted. I'm all for a good healthy mix of income levels, but right now it seems like we're only building low income housing. Joe
