  1. Sorry if I missed this, but why all the signs at every exit on 485 (from at least South Blvd to Monroe Rd) that have a 485 Shield with "ALT" above it and "DETOUR" below it? I mean, I know the toll lane construction is going on. But what is meant by ALT 485 DETOUR? There aren't going to be closings, are there? And either way, where exactly are the detouring 485 traffic?
  2. Not at all. Their tweet to me a week ago said "Our uptown location isn't far away though!". I don't know if they were talking time or distance, but either way, definitely not dead.
  3. Yep, that's the address that had been announced.
  4. Spotted above the TVM today. At first I thought it said "Conversion Center".....and I thought that was a rather troubling development!!
  5. Glad I missed that mess yesterday. I rode the northbound from 3rd to Parkwood to walk to Birdsong at get some Honey Pie right at 3pm. I was back on the southbound at 3:10 and was LITERALLY the only person in my car until we got into uptown. The rest of the trip was thankfully uneventful. There are generally announcements on the station loudspeakers when something is broken, although they can be hard to hear. I agree that quick engagement on twitter (or something, anything) would at least leave customers a bit less disgruntled. It seems simple, but I guess who's going to do it? You're not going to pay somebody to sit there on twitter. And anybody else is probably busy helping solve the problem. I hope.
  6. I got word from D9 via the twitter machine that they had to cancel the Fermenteria (near McGill Rose Garden on N Davidson) "due to complications with the railroad". So it has been removed from my map: https://mapsengine.google.com/map/edit?mid=zvfji2eVQoVE.kz5BFo-0quQ8
  7. When agenda posted that "story" yesterday about the 11 new breweries coming soon, it was only 9 (as you can see in the URL).....they left out Petty Thieves and Free Range at Camp North End. So then they changed it 11 after adding those 2. Now this morning it's at 10, with them having removed the D9 Fermenteria. Anybody know what happened? Is that still a go and just not in the next 6 months? Or is it scrapped altogether? https://www.charlotteagenda.com/191508/quick-list-of-all-9-breweries-thatll-open-in-charlotte-within-the-next-6-months/ Also, agenda today reporting on Sunstead opening Jan 18: https://www.charlotteagenda.com/191942/a-new-brewery-called-sunstead-opens-soon-near-bank-of-america-stadium/
  8. Wow! I don't know if I mentioned it here, but I was in Rhino one morning at 7am, standing next to the Unknown Ginger Ale when one of them exploded. That will wake you up......duck and cover, man, duck and cover!!
  9. 1. agenda with the "11 breweries opening in the next 6 months"....and they're not including 2 in Cornelius. I'd say the realistic o/u by Jun 30 on those 11 is around 3.5. https://www.charlotteagenda.com/191508/quick-list-of-all-9-breweries-thatll-open-in-charlotte-within-the-next-6-months/ 2. went to Middle James on Sunday....they have a new wit on tap which was fine. They also have a new Lime beer. It's horrible.....I mean for me. Maybe straight lime juice is your thing. My wife, a proud Iowa grad, poured out the final couple oz. The alumni association may fine her for that. 3. I don't know if it was mentioned here, but Unknown has recalled their Imperial Teleporter and their Russian Roulette....due to wild yeast infection causing re-ferment and thus exploding cans.
  10. The People's Market second location: https://www.charlotteagenda.com/187538/the-peoples-market-opening-a-second-location-in-historic-firehouse-uptown/
  11. I was in Plaza Mid the other day and realized I hadn't added Cavendish Social House to the Charlotte Breweries List and Map.....so I have rectified that. I made it a new category, as I believe it's the first out-of-town brewery with a taproom only. I think Fonta Flora at Optimist Hall will fit this category if they ever open. Also, see new Growth Charts below. These assume Sunstead isn't open yet. The Charlotte Graph ignores that Salud was sort-of an actual brewery for a short time and does not include it as a Charlotte Brewery. The CharMeck Graph ignores chains.....i.e. Rock Bottom (and Hops if any still existing in 2009 or later). The count is now at 24-42 for CharMeck, depending on what you count.

  12. Ours is still cooking....see attached. Pork tenderloins are on the grill (indirect), and I do Hop Drop instead of cornbread!
  13. There are two different Facebook pages for Sunstead Brewing. One is "SunsteadBrewing" and one is "SunsteadBrewingCLT". The 2nd has the updated logo, so I wrote them yesterday.....but no answer. I wrote the 1st today, and got the replies below. Hahahahahahaha. My guess is that the 1st is controlled by a former associate and there's been a falling out?
  14. Map updated for Devil's Logic.....but now I need to know about Sunstead!!: https://mapsengine.google.com/map/edit?mid=zvfji2eVQoVE.kz5BFo-0quQ8
