  1. Gilde posted yesterday..."It's Very Soon".
  2. Resident Culture Southend tap room opening Friday: https://charlotte.axios.com/283703/sneak-peek-resident-cultures-new-south-end-taproom-opens-friday/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=newsletter_axioslocal_charlotte&stream=top Anyone been to Midnight Mulligan yet? I had hope to check it out but alas, they aren't open on Mondays....the one day a week I am right there every other week (usually at Lucky Dog). Hopfly is brewing in Charlotte but keeping an opening date close to the vest. Lot to "undo" in the Unknown space. No updated date on Hi-Wire or Gilde.
  3. Wait....where are you buying liquor in Charlotte?!? I went into the SouthPark ABC store last week...walked in, laughed, walked out. It was beyond bare.
  4. So what are the thoughts on the Mint Street Deck? Tepper buy as insurance in case new stadium falls through as something he can develop for entertainment area?
  5. It's going to be quite something when plans start coming out. When is the Pipe and Foundry in Oakville supposed to be up and running? Last I can find is 2023. I would have to think some sort of legal agreement is in place for Tepper to buy the property when they vacate or a buy and lease back until they move? If he is already buying up property, I'm sure the master plans are already in place. Oh to be a design and architect firm!
  6. Just to update, and that the manager wasn't crazy when they said they would be opening soon... Burial has been opening their patio on select days. The "lounge" is open again today and Friday from 4-8pm with draft beer along with the to-go packages. So while they haven't begun the upfit inside, they have their ABC permits and are slinging beers on the patio.
  7. They want clicks to show the city is bending to Tepper. That gets people riled up. When in reality: the city staff all recommended the rezoning (for pipe and foundary...not Tepper). As it has been stated...city council has rejected about 2 re-zoning cases via a vote in the past however many years. If it's up for a vote...and city planning staff recommends it...it gets passed. But that doesn't sell news clicks. There was no controversy here. Its a general industry area. Did they think people are going to be up in arms that a huge industrial pipe plant is going to be replaced by mixed use? LOL. The community meeting had 13 participants and 2 questions. https://charlottenc.gov/planning/Rezoning/RezoningPetitions/2021Petitions/Documents/Community_Meeting_Reports/2021_033_CMR.pdf
  8. Yes I know that (many friends and family members in armed forces). That didn't stop people from offering.
  9. Exodus day was my FAVORITE day to travel. There is no better sight than all these "kids" in uniform and rucksack from basic training, smiling ear to ear, going home for a week. Everyone in the airport went out of their way for these guys and girls. Thanked them for their service. Smiled at them, Shook their hands. Tried to buy them a beer. It's the one day in the airport that people are generally not assholes.
  10. It helps over crowding because they are adding a HS that will probably house 2500+ students. They aren't just moving a high school. As for new apartments on-site creating issues with overcrowding...are we really expecting out of county high school kids to be moving here? Sure some people might move there so that they can go to that school...but then that opens a spot at another school. EVERY high school is overcrowded (except for where my kid goes, Northwest School for the Arts LOL). And from my experience in apartment living, new apartments rarely have high school teenagers. When I got divorced and lived in an apartment for a few years, I think my large apartment complex had maybe 4 high school kids. Way more elementary, and just 2 middle school kids. As for adding apartments and townhomes...I am sure working with a developer is helping offset some of the school building costs.
  11. As a South Charlotte resident, this is awesome news. Just hope I am not retired (2035) before it gets built!
  12. If you hint at Legion, I will smack you. LOL. Something different please! But yeah, something on one of those greenspaces would be awesome. While leases can be expensive in Ballantyne, the centers can offer deals to drive up traffic in the area, like Simon is doing for Suffolk at SouthPark. And these don't need to be big expensive buildouts for a taproom. Brewery/Taproom brings people to the shopping center that wouldn't already be there. Someplace like Blakeney might be too expensive but there are other lessor visited centers that could add one. But yeah, that Dean and Deluca spot would be killer location. I wonder though if that large patio would be allowed to have beer, or if it would have to sectioned out to just a section for the brewery.
  13. I assume that is good? They are designing a tap house to be built on Carmel Rd, which will be walking distance to my house, but besides permits being issued and them being listed, no information about the project. I'm hoping for something good/cool/nice, but at this point, anything beer related that I can walk to easily is a huge bonus in my book.
  14. The biggest deterrent at that spot is that it's completely hidden by Dicks, and not an entrance most people use. It's a "locals" entrance haha. Hopefully they do some marketing in the mall because if you aren't from Charlotte, or for that matter Southend, people aren't going to realize "Suffolk Punch" listed under restaurants is a brewery/taproom.
  15. https://charlotte.axios.com/276061/scoop-suffolk-punch-is-adding-a-taproom-and-beer-garden-at-a-revamped-plaza-at-southpark-mall/ Suffolk Punch heading to SouthPark mall. Interesting. Not a big fan of their beer but sometimes stop in if the wifey wants a cocktail after stopping for beers at Triple C. I mean I am not making a trip just to go to there from home, but if I ever go back to the office, might stop in after work if they have anything interesting on. Should do just fine with mall traffic and with the growing amount of apartments going up. Legion is usually busy, at least when the weather is nice. Would have liked to see pretty much any other brewery do this concept at the mall but it is what it is. Progress. Now do Ballantyne. How places like Noda haven't opened a tap room in South CLT is beyond me.
  16. Because the state ABC isn't going to approve beer cans with strap on dildo's and pocket pussies on them. Did you read the article? The state’s ABC commission is notorious for being cautious when it comes to anything racy. In August, the commission denied the request from a Utah brewery to distribute its “Polygamy Porter” throughout North Carolina. The label depicted a barely dressed man flanked by three women, who were also barely dressed. In that case, the governing group cited a code that prohibits statements on labels that are “undignified, immodest, or in bad taste,” the local station WRAL reported. For its sin — not attaining approval for its labels — Sycamore will be issued a notice of violation, which will probably arrive within a month, Qureshi says. Then they’ll likely face a fine. Around $500-$1,000, Qureshi estimates.
  17. Yes. They have an approved label from 2018. That isn't it. https://charlotte.axios.com/189273/sycamores-sexual-reindeer-beer-cans-prompts-a-visit-from-state-alcohol-enforcement/ Not sure why this is so hard for you believe.
  18. There is zero chance the ABC approved that label, just like they didn't approve the two labels before it. Year 1, Joe Bruno reported about the reindeer sex label. They get a fine, makes the news, publicity sells even more of it, have to re-label, rinse/repeat every year since.
  19. With the fantastic weather we have had this fall, with virtually no chance of rain ever....I have seen more exotics than I can ever remember. I basically only drive my daughter to the bus stop and I see like an exotic a day between Carmel, Glen Eagles and Park. Its nuts. Haven't seen that beaut though.
  20. One is a zoning violation, the other is breaking NCABC laws. Not exactly the same thing. The fines for Sycamore should be substantially higher as this is the 3rd time they have pulled the same stunt. As for their beer: Better options at better price points across the board. I get the millennial love for the place...that's what they cater to. Drug references, sex toys, and medicore IPA's...that's what they do best.
  21. They have come out and said they couldn't buy that kind of advertising for the $1000 fine, so money well spent. They think the are "cool" and "edgy"....how about making good beer instead? Nah, we just want attention so we pay Charlotte Agenda for advertising and break state laws to get noticed instead.
  22. The annual Sycamore, "we bypassed state regulations and released a beer can we shouldn't" Christmas cookie beer is out...complete with strap on dildo's. Nothing says christmas like dildo's and pocket pussies.
  23. I saw that lambo this week on Park Rd. Maybe he was visiting his lawyer in Southpark LOL. I was trying to peer inside but couldn't see squat.
  24. Cherry neighborhood sold out long ago. There is no "saving" it
  25. FYI - You can usually get habanero extract at Aldi's in a little tube. I use it for chili...it be hawt! As for Hoppy Holidays seasonal creep....yeah...pretty sure it has been this early at least last year and I think the year before. Nothing like seeing Santa cans while the Halloween decorations are still up. And it isn't like you buy an IPA now and stash it away until Christmas. Good luck finding a fresh one in the middle of December.
