    Carolina Place Mall

    Almost 30 years ago, Charlotte was in the hunt for a major relocation ... "Picking a site for the move "was the most difficult decision that I've been faced with in my life," said Edward A. Brennan, Sears chairman and chief executive, who was consistently vague on details about the move, the plans for the site and the number of employees the merchandising group eventually will have. The field of possible locations previously was narrowed to a handful that included Dallas-Ft. Worth, Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham, N.C., and Chicago. Negotiations for the Hoffman Estates location were concluded Sunday." https://www.nytimes.com/1989/06/27/business/sears-plans-move-to-site-near-chicago.html

    Charlotte Bike / Scooter Sharing

    From Steve Goodridge, Board Member - Bike/Walk NC... "Some electric scooter operators report feeling unsafe or unwelcome on certain roadways, electing to use sidewalks instead. Many bicyclists empathize. From a public policy perspective, however, we posit that if interactions between lower-speed and higher-speed traffic on an ordinary road are deemed unreasonably unsafe, unpleasant, or inconvenient, the prudent remedy is to change the roadway environment in ways that reduce conflicts and/or speeds, and not to push users of lower-speed vehicles onto the sidewalks." https://www.bikewalknc.org/2018/09/rules-of-the-road-for-electric-scooters/

    Charlotte trying to be more bike friendly

    We completed the next to last CLT Bike Camp this afternoon. It was a hybrid camp of combining bikes and art. We rode to many instillations all over the city this week drinking in the known and the obscure. From an up close and personal tour of the Blumenthal, to a tour of Goodyear Arts in the Camp Northend Complex. Today was capped off by CDOT Planning describing what goes into designing a safe cycling experience at the new cycletrack on 10th Street. Parents, this is one hell of a camp. Do yourselves and your children a favor and check it out. www.facebook.com/CLT-Bike-Camp-805270836245328/?hc_ref=ARR3qFYpzh3GsfHS-3ldhVCgnxlyXnJ17obUYx1vge2uIc7_2T93Qc0-VS62pXSJsSo&fref=nf

    Another bar/restaurant bites the dust

    Although their Banana Pudding always got top billing, Lori would sometimes have the Dark Chocolate Banana Pudding available. Good God Almighty, it was indeed something to savor ( no pun intended..).

    Legacy Union (former Charlotte Observer redevelopment)

    If I'm counting correctly from the current, published drawings, there are 18 floors between the two terraces, and it looks like that's where they are now, so any additional floors without an outcropping would be a tell.

    Someone needs to attach a big carrot nose on this sculpture and hang a sign from it saying " Welcome to Oz.".
