  1. I'm not sure if this is appropriate to post here, but here goes: Just a few hours ago, I was part of a rather blunt display of discrimination. For less than a year, I was a regular customer at Reid's Fine Foods. The service was always professional and I enjoyed the dining atmosphere. Unfortunately, an incident occurred that forced me to discontinue my patronage at Reid's. On Monday December 21, 2009 between 2-2:30pm, I was present at the eatery for lunch. I received a meal prepared by a young Caucasian female consisting of chicken wings and macaroni & cheese. From there, I gathe
  2. Yea...I JUST saw the background as I logged on/off myspace. Pretty decent exposure.
  3. Well....I may be a little late in the game with this, but here's my take on the new LYNX line. I ride it everyday to work to save on gas & do my part in saving the environment. Overall, I think its a smooth ride from downtown to Arrowood (where I get off) Station. However, I have a few gripes: they seriously need to build a long line of bus shelters outside of each station where buses feed in-&-out. You can't possibly expect people to just stand outside & face the elements while waiting on the bus from the train. I catch the 56 bus from Arrowood & there are only 2 small shelter
  4. When was the "Greatland" concept phased out? I worked at a Target: Greatland just 8 months ago.
  5. The area around Lenox Mall may be a traffic nightmare, but it is far more 'urban' than SouthPark.
  6. I agree....the mall could use a more "stand-out" anchor. But, the present set-up is just fine for Northlake. The mall is still very new & its going to be a few years before its able to obtain a set identity.
  7. Last weekend, I went to Northlake for the first time. In my opinion, I think that its a very nice mall with an even more inviting environment. The attention to detail with store design caught my eye and I was overall pleased with my shopping experience there. The Banana Republic Store has a wayyyyyy better selection than the Concord Mills store & is more visual captivating. I went to Northlake on a Saturday afternoon and was there well into the nite - the mall was pretty packed and far from dead. I'm sure it has its 'up-and-down' moments like every mall. As far as this mall attracting
  8. I think it's unfair to project a gloomy future for Northlake at the sake of a few robberies. Yes, robberies/crime at ANY shopping center is bad. SouthPark, Concord Mills, & Carolina Place have all seen their share of these occurrences. Realistically, no mall is immune to this type of activity.
  9. Wow...there goes alot of childhood memories. Charlotte is changing so much now that I'm away in college.
  10. As an advent shopper, I have to agree with you. I went to the Ruehl @ Tampa's International Plaza during Spring Break a lil' over a week ago & was disappointed to find out that there is not a store here in Atlanta!!!
  11. Ok...I live in Atlanta...& Fox5 News just did a report on the city's possibility of luring the HOF. Of course, the ATL media made it seem like the city already had it in the bag! They threw the obvious big names in the mix, you know: the Georgia Aquarium, booming downtown district, millions of people projected to visit, and of course...being ATLANTA. Then, they did something that hurt me as a Charlotte-native. They took a snapshot of Trade and Tryon Street on a dead afternoon and advertised that as our ENTIRE downtown. "Charlotte's downtown is a ghost-town compared to Atlanta." They even w
  12. I have to agree....Goldrusher will always be a classic......even after the 1,000,000th time I ride it!
  13. I agree....Gucci, A/X, & Dior standout in my mind as real good contenders in this area for the time being.
  14. Wow, Hotlanta....that statement is 'bout as elementary as one can get. Although, the Eastland area has recently been exposed to some bad aspects of life....its FAR from being "the ghetto" in a true sense. Also, giving broad generalizations of people in a given area is very ignorant. A majority of the people who shop there are teens/young adults (contrary to popular belief, they represent more than just BLACK people) who want a particular selection of clothing. Most of the time, this selection (which is more "thug" inspired...if that makes you comfortable ) is hard to find @ other regional mall
