  1. Maybe not "Exotic" because its made in Bowling Green, but it certainly is a super car. Z06 - 194mph top speed and 0-60 in 2.6. Those are McLaren numbers.
  2. They are "store aging" it so its ripe when it finally gets cooler haha
  3. I know people like to rag on Tepper for some of the stuff that has happened...but man...it was pretty awesome to see Red Hot Chili Peppers concert there last night. We have missed on so many big shows in the past 25 years that I have been here because we couldn't have stadium tours. Not sure how many the stadium holds for a concert, but there was a lot of people uptown that normally wouldn't be drinking and having a great time. I might not have been "sold out" but there wasn't many empty seats that I could see.
  4. I went a few weeks ago. The inside is good looking and spacious but honestly spent little time inside (or outside) because they were having drag brunch and the volume levels were obnoxious inside and out. The actual bar is really nice. We grabbed a quick pils, enjoyed it, and got out quickly as we couldn't even talk to each other outside. The outside space is fine. Most of it is covered in some fashion so you don't melt because it is full sun. None of it really screams traditional "German" but the beer authentic as it gets. Is it Paulaner? No. I will be back when the weather gets cooler and I can grab a liter and some hearty German food I miss.
  5. That Nissan Altima is also a unicorn...it appears to not have fenders falling off nor a cracked windshield. Maybe even a non-temporary tag!
  6. Depends: If there is an event going on...crowded. If not, much more enjoyable. They're places to get your beer outside so you don't have go in the building. Inside is...fine I guess. Outside is great and if you are coming near the holidays, they have a Christmas Market as well (crowded but if you go during the day not bad). If you like Hefe's, look for Middle James Great Musa hefe (at the brewery and in some stores), it's quite good as well.
  7. What I think is funny is that Bokhari was so worried about the "abolished single family rezoning" and people just building "whatever" on their land...and he literally lives next door to a duplex (gasp) and somehow his house is still worth 1.25mil according to Zillow. It's almost like you can have duplexes and triplexes co-exist with fintech innovators million dollar homes and get more people on a lot and increase supply.
  8. It's scheduled for 2023. I ran the greenway this past weekend and I haven't seen work being done around there but they are still doing work on the bridge (but that should be wrapping up soon). As KJ mentioned above, they are supposed to be adding super wide sidewalks on Ballantyne Corp Pl west of 521 to accommodate bikers and walkers (the bridge will be a bottle neck but nothing they can do there). Can't remember where the sidewalk renderings were but it really did look nice with the super wide sidewalk and still good size buffer from the road. I love love our greenways but it still "doesn't go anywhere" at least in South Charlotte (Little Sugar Creek is another story). Opening this greenway connection opens up a whole new world that is EASILY accessible via greenway. Can't wait.
  9. Yes. It could handle a new MLS training facility and we could get Spirit Halloween AND Halloween Express to move their HQ and take the other 750k sf. Also views of Mt Rainer in the distance, I mean Crowders.
  10. I honestly believe Tepper got the idea of renting out this office when he started seeing the meme's of Spirit Halloween moving in the the Panther Rock Hill facility. This will be the Spirit Halloween of MLS training facilities.
  11. Bringing up the race card already? Man it isn't even 10:20am yet.
  12. But this is an unimpressive 30 year old office building in a unimpressive area. Eastland, while it was not going to some great area, was a custom built complex for MLS (at least at one point it was). These are mostly beautiful new buildings: https://www.mlssoccer.com/news/facts-figures-and-images-every-mls-training-facility
  13. Those all look like a nicer location and appear to be buildings built for MLS (I don't know the cities but just a quick zoom out). Charlotte is going to be a 7-8 month rehab of a 1995 office park building in a crappy part of town. Maybe they will get the crew from Zombie Office Flippers to transform it from Office Space movie set to to beautiful. And don't get me wrong, I am 100% sure it will be completely functional and have everything they "need". But if I were buying a 300million business, I would be doing what I can to attract the best people, front and back of the house. You can't tell me there isn't nicer spaces out there in a city of our size.
  14. We went from Tepper renting an office building off of Monroe rd for a few years to building a panther training facility in first ward? There is a better chance I make 277 a river when I am elected mayor than Tepper partnering with Levine to build a 9 figure practice facility for the Panthers on land he doesn’t own. This MLS facility is clearly a short term solution to upgrade to *something* for 2023. Probably a 10 year lease until he can acquire a more desirable spot. can you imagine the sales pitch for MLS free agents coming down Monroe Rd to look at this facility? They will have to blindfold them and assure them they are not being held captive in an old middle school.
  15. I don’t think there is any chance he builds a stadium of any kind on a parcel he doesn’t own. Plus there is parking there for maybe 250 cars max. That’s a job for memorial or Matthews sports complex. it would probably piss off the independence if they played at memorial but since they turned down his offer to buy them…I see that as 100% what he does lol
