    Charlotte Photo of the Day

    They've been working on this for about a month now, every time I thought they were done they kept adding more to it. Pretty cool wall art. This is on 5th street on the side of Phil's Tavern.

    Is that from a TV show? L.A. probably a good guess, really tough to tell though.

    Trump Charlotte redux

    He was here for the ACN conference like every year, nothing more. His and his familys interests in Charlotte probably don't extend much further then their property up at the lake.

    Charlotte Center City Streetcar Network

    Great to see the Catenary going in, really gives it a true streetcar feel. It's up at the Trade/Caldwell intersection and going up around the 6th street curve.

    Charlotte's Light Rail: Lynx Blue Line

    I hope they take the time and energy to make this a very wide, visible, well lit, and inviting path from the street. Landscaping, overhead signs, maybe even some benches. It just needs to have an obvious presence on Davidson. Walking back between 2 warehouses without that will have people thinking twice.

    SouthEnd Midrise Projects

    Hopefully this is the right thread for this but I didn't see any mention of it in a quick search. The lot at S. Tryon and Carson is empty and there is machinery on site moving dirt this morning. I believe this is the 1125 S. Tryon Townhomes?

    Now if they would just lower the price of concessions I'd go again. I know it's been discussed here, but I hope they rethink the price of beer before next season.
  8. A large pile of fencing is now in the parking lot and guys in hardhats are on the site. (edit: at the center city inn)

    Speaking of the boards, here's 2 pics of them from earlier this week inside the stadium. Huge! Also notice there are now two video "bands" around the bowl instead of just one.

    Jayvee, can you confirm what beers you could get for the $3 price? Craft beers (OMB, NoDa, etc) or just the bud light, coors light, etc? And what size?

    While we're on the topic of the concessions. I went to opening night and had a few local brews in the mason jars which was $10 each. I was annoyed by the price (my ticket was only $8!), but figured I would enjoy the experience since it was opening night. I went again to last nights game and suddenly the mason jars are $12? I don't know how many ounces that is, but c'mon man, $12? I'm an absolute beer snob, but to charge those prices to a minor league game just kills it for me as it's suppose to be cheap fun to begin with. The smaller glasses (maybe 12oz?) are $7.50. You do get a $2 voucher with your ticket, but it's tough to drink just one beer through 9 innings, or more. Outside of thirsty Thursday's, I won't be attending any more games. That's just me though. I'm not really a baseball fan, and I enjoy having a cold beer at any sporting event I go to, so it's a tough sell.
  12. Don't remember if I posted this a couple months ago or not(?), but I had the pleasure of seeing every corner of that motel from the roof, to the crawl space between the rooms, to the closed section along Church st. They had a # of leaks in the roof that damaged rooms causing them to close those rooms down while they gutted them. The entire back half of the building facing Church street is closed off because of similar problems that were beyond repair. If you look at the 2nd floor from Church street, all of those rooms are wide open to the elements and filled with trash and furniture they no longer use. How this building hasn't been shut down by code violations by now is beyond me. I can't imagine it's making any money and fully expect it to be gone soon with the recent momentum on N Tryon. edit: found some pics http://i.imgur.com/erM0dmOl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/xDdplWWl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/Fcv2Z7hl.jpg

    Looks like a tower crane is about to go up at the Crescent Dilworth site at Morehead and Harding. They were moving parts around for it this morning when I drove by.

    For SRO tix, are your only options the 2nd floor of the home run porch or on the grass berm? I have 2 myself, but wasn't sure where we could stand
