  1. But how were the tacos? I ate at Ava - had their fennel sausage pizza. It was good, but not really competition to Inizio and Capishe. I'm most looking forward to Botiwala.
  2. Does anyone know what's under construction on the old Coliseum Center lot near Walmart? It looks like a building with some kind of island - I'm guessing a gas station. Yay.
  3. Looking towards town down Camden at night from the intersection @ Park Ave., the Flower Child and Design Within Reach neon signs light up the area quite a bit, in a vibrant kind of way. It looks great!
  4. I had to look at the reviews, and 13 of the 24 reviews were 4 or 5 stars. Most of the negative ones were for service alone, not food quality. I didn’t experience any service issues myself, but I was there both times for a late lunch, so it wasn’t crazy busy at the time. Hopefully the service gets better with time, but food-wise, it’s a winner. Just don’t go in expecting a really adventurous/exciting/creative menu, because you won’t find it - it’s staple bar food, executed very well.
  5. I checked out Superica on opening day and completely agree with the reviews here - it’s awesome! I really went in expecting an expensive (for lunch) meal and small portions with no free chips and salsa. I couldn’t have gotten it more wrong. Free chips, 2 delicious salsas, unlimited beans and rice, and a couple really damned good enchiladas. It was all delicious, and at $11.99, maybe a little more expensive than my every day lunch, but still a good deal. Speaking of openings in South End, I’ve been to The Rosemont (in the old Wu’s/Nan & Byron’s/Vinnies location) twice now, and I was i
  6. A new restaurant is opening in the old location of The Meat & Fish Company called Hi Tide Poke and Raw Bar. Signage is up and they are hiring. It’ll be nice to have a raw bar back in the neighborhood since Vinnie’s closed (not that Vinnie’s was known for quality, but still). It looks like it’ll be pretty laid back, and hopefully that means they’ll have raw oysters that don’t cost $3 each. I can kill a good 3-4 dozen no problem, but that gets pricy at most places.
  7. Oh, trust me, if it were on the menu, I would’ve gotten it!
  8. Went to The People's Market for lunch. Man, that place is bare. The space they are in versus the amount of products that they have is really out of whack. There are just little shelves sparsely spread about with some local (and not local) goods. There is a good showing of Charlotte/Carolinas products, but it would have a better feel to it if the space were condensed. It's just way too big for what they have to offer. And it's pricey - I got a Boar's Head pastrami sandwich (which was delicious, but a bit light on the meat) and an individual bag of chips and it was $14. The individual-size
  9. There's no way that is accurate. The story says that he works at a bank branch and is a manager. No one working at a bank branch makes that kind of money - no one. I think there is an extra zero on his salary and what he is saving per month - maybe a joke, maybe a mistake. Does the CA ask for pay stubs for these things or just take people's word for it? If they were netting essentially $946,000 annually, that's roughly $80,000 per month. The monthly expenses they listed are under $2,500. Even if they saved $20K per month and had $2,500 on expenses, what the hell do they spend the other $57,500
  10. You are correct! The only place I saw that signage visible was at the very end of Concourse B where that pic was taken. It looks quite nice!
  11. So, today I got dropped off from Park ‘N Go at an unusual place. I had my attention to my phone during the whole ride to the airport. What I saw when we stopped was a surprise. I honestly had to do a double take to make sure I was at the right airport! Apparently the lanes for buses moved a couple weeks ago. They are now up against the rental car terminal. Now, the parking shuttles stop under a covered, 5-lane overpass. It looks nice! Then you have to cross the construction area (which for years now seems like it will be never ending). By the way, the drop-off and pick-up lanes are still
  12. Independence Center is officially gone. The last couple of walls were torn down today.
  13. I’m in St. Louis right now and I can’t wait to get beck to Charlotte. This city has some nice neighborhoods outside of downtown (central west end, ballpark village, Clayton, Delmar loop), but geez...downtown is just depressing. It’s been probably 10 years since I’ve been here, but this place is just vacant now. The largest building in the state, One AT&T Center, is completely vacant - a 44 story building! Though there is some lovely old architecture and there are some skyscraper “canyons” that are grander than Charlotte has, the city just seems empty. Lots of buildings, not lots of people.
  14. I’d second that. I got a burger there a few days after they opened and it was great - juicy and full of flavor. They also have Sir Kensington’s mustard and ketchup for condiments, which are both awesome on a burger. Free fries on the first visit if you download the app! The fries I had were crisp and fresh, but a couple coworkers of mine said theirs were a bit greasy and soggy, like they’d been sitting around for awhile. Anyway, my experience there was great. Not Bang Bang great, but no too far off either!
