  1. Granite Falls isn't under a mask mandate...that's exactly what we looked like 5 weeks ago. Anyways, they make some good bottles of barrel age sours that pop up from time to time here if that's your thing.
  2. Correct on the willow oaks. They were planted because they grow fast and big. If those willow oaks were white oaks, we wouldn't have this discussion about having to cut down 100 yr old trees all the time. Same with the thousands of stupid bradford pears that were planted when the big housing boom started in the 80's. They are all past their life expectancy and need to be cut down.
  3. Lower Left is a throwback to what breweries were when they first started in Charlotte: small, friendly, relaxed. You don’t go here to impress your buddies. You go to have a good beer and chill. Their “Three Hour Tour” is legit. I find myself there when I drive down Southside Dr and there isn’t a parking spot to be had and I’m totally fine with that.
  4. I am guessing warehouse space costs pennies on the dollar in Newton vs here. Haven't been (nor heard of them before) but I crept on their untappd page and it shows 19 drafts. D9 also opened a tap room in Henderson so it seems they are trying to expand their "footprint/name recognition" around the state.
  5. https://www.instagram.com/p/CTRyjvLADnI/ Interesting news regarding Unknown Brewing. They are going to continue brewing but in a whole new way. CBV (Community Brewing Ventures) is sort of a contract brewery started by D9. They do all the "other stuff" while the brewers just brew. It's up in Newton. BIG ANNOUNCEMENT There is no end when you Live Without Boundaries. We may have closed our taproom, but we have a new home at the CBV Brewery & Taproom, and the fun is just beginning. The folks at CBV know just how much we love what we do, whether it's making crazy new
  6. Johnny Utah? Not sure why the FBI is chiming in on this!
  7. Yeah I noticed that as well. If they set it up for 10k for football, they can get probably get concerts up to 20k people as well.
  8. Speaking of: The Rock https://www.panthers.com/news/rock-hill-development-rising-up-from-dirt?fbclid=IwAR13vuQPVzbde_4e3wfhxb6PiYuiLf4D55MVf5i0C63U6Qah1iIu28uoA9o
  9. As I have mentioned before: Tepper isn't going to put 1/3 of his net worth into sports franchises. No way a hedge fund manager would put that many eggs in one basket. He is already in for 3 billion and likely another half to full billion for a new stadium. His net worth is only 13.5-14bil. He wants to develop properties around his teams...that's where he is diversifying. Real Estate development is where he will be building the wealth (the growth of the franchise wealth is just on paper until he sells). I'll eat a shoe if he buys a MLB team to relocate to Charlotte before I retire.
  10. Imagine the luxury saltwater pool or dog wash tub after the C-shift is done at 3pm
  11. Railfans? Pfft. I’m marrying into a family of full blown foamers
  12. This is VERY true. I have to take a taxi from downtown Hamburg to our office every day and so few drivers spoke anything more than broken English. But almost none of the drivers were German. Thank God for mytaxi app for most of my trips. They also like to pretend to not speak english when it comes time to pay with a card and try to take you to an ATM, insisting their machine doesn't work. Then when you refuse...they suddenly understand what you saying and then the machine suddenly works. Get this almost every time from the airport, but never when the hotel called a cab for you.
  13. Yes. I work for a German company. 1200 employees in HQ in Hamburg and every one speaks English fluently. In the 12+ weeks I have spent in Germany (mostly for work, some for vacation), I have run across less than a handful of people that spoke no English in the cities (Hamburg/Berlin/Munich) and they were all older (60's). Learning English has been mandatory in schools for a while now. I don't know about out in the rural areas where they would be less exposed to English on a daily life but in the city they sure do.
  14. That would strike terror in their hearts. Non-rich people roaming their neighborhood. *shudder*
  15. The greenway extension to Green Rea is officially killed by Country Day Middle School and it's neighbors. Disappointed, but I will stay access I can walk to. When it gets started is another story. They do have recent ROW /property edge staked out at Ryder with "trail" on the them so they are doing "something". Such a shame the school and neighbors delayed this project for more than a year (probably two before its started). Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation is providing an update on the McAlpine Creek Greenway project (Johnston Road to Green Rea Road): Due to difficulty acquirin
