    about 14,000. We have been awful though. If we were even decent and remotely fun to watch, 20,000+ would be attainable. It blows my mind Brad Lambert still has a job, but the decision to keep Judy Rose cost her hers, so for that, Lambert has my thanks. His ineptitude got us the #2 guy from the University of Florida and the #2 guy from Syracuse. I am optimistic the change in direction in leadership will pay dividends in future seasons.

    temporary seats going up for the first two games of the season.

    Plaza-Midwood Projects (Central, Commonwealth, The Plaza)

    I quoted some upfit work for this store. They have the same GM HHM did. They are keeping the layout exactly the same (same fixtures and everything). It's basically just HHM with new owners.

    Jack Beagles is great, but I'll miss Savor. Good food at a reasonable price. I'm not terribly surprised though, the place seemed to be overlooked the last few years. It was rarely busy and honestly, the food quality had dipped some from where it was when it opened. I believe it was sold a few years ago, so maybe the decline coincided with that.

    Ah, I thought that thing had been long abandoned.

    Anyone know what is under construction behind the townhomes that are bound by McDowell, 7th street, and 277?

    Charlotte area "ring cities"

    I've done two projects in Trilogy this year. It's a nice neighborhood for sure. Treetops in Indian Land is very similar. Trilogy wins in a head to head battle IMO because their HOA fees include a membership to a boat club on Lake Norman.

    I grew up in Weddington. Can't imagine myself ever going back to that place. The homes are nice no doubt, but that whole area is dullsville.

    I don't know what the train schedules look like, but once the Amtrak terminal is open in Uptown, commuting into town via Amtrak for work may be possible, which could make Salisbury a more attractive location for people working in Charlotte.

    Charlotte area "ring cities"

    It's a nice trip as long as you're not trying to escape heat. It doesn't help with that. There are a few wineries up that way too. They aren't going to win any awards (none that matter anyway), but Stony Mountain Vineyards up that way has a beautiful view of the river valley that runs through the Uwharries.

    Same. I think she will struggle in this area with those prices.

    For me the appeal was not having to move out after the school year ended. Nothing sucked harder than living on your own for 9 months and then moving back in with your parents for the summer.

    Grubb is moving forward with plans to sell the remaining plots of land in Seigle Point for development. I forget the name of the new developer, but they will need to get started pretty much immediately and be finished within the next 12 months. There will be 19 more units starting at $325k. The homeowners in the neighborhood have to agree to extend their declaration though, or they will drop their bid. 22/31 homeowners have to approve it, which is probably pretty likely as long as we can track them all down.

    :::Sidewalk Widths

    All I mean by not nice is that it wasn't a place people sought to hang out in. There was almost nothing there. It was basically an office park with all the buildings on Tryon Street and all the parking decks behind on Church and College streets.

    To be fair, uptown was not very nice back then and it waant too far removed from being full of poverty and crime.
