    Why would you advocate for a black church that's thriving to disappear?  They keep up their grounds of their property. If so why not advocate for the Presbyterian church in Uptown to disappear as well then since it's an eyesore to "progress"?  Your comment is problematic...

    Didn’t mean to offend anyone.  Had no idea it was a black church, since the sign says “For All People”.  It’s just an unattractive building to me.  Nothing more, nothing less.

    I wonder if that United Church for Little People has any plans to sell anytime soon.  I'd love to see that eyesore disappear. 

    (*yes, I know that's not that church's name but every time I see one that pops into my head for some reason...)

    ESPN Game day has taken over RB park … massive production, no telling how much this traveling show cost, but who will be the first to spot the one area they cheated in?


    This is an old pic with FNB still under construction and new Duke nowhere to be found.  I win.

    I've heard from a semi reliable source that Rock Bottom is going to be a ghost kitchen for an already existing, but unnamed American HQ. 

    Admitting total ignorance.  I had to look up 'ghost kitchen' and am now even more confused on how that correlates with a HQ?  So, like meal delivery services for Truist or something, as an example?  Totally in the dark over here.

    don't worry they will pick it up one day and re-open in a new spot the next day or two.  It will be moved somewhere I am sure.

    I hope.  We heard that about Maddie's Diner at the Music Factory and where did that go?  No, seriously... Where did it go?  

    Aaaaactually.... I googled and somehow missed this article from the O a couple months back.  Sorry for the subject derailment, but I'm good for one of those from time to time.  And I can't wait for that vegan meatloaf!  Everyone else here probably already knew about this:


    Ok, back to this other diner...

    As far as Rock Bottom space.  Balfour Beatty (contractor) pulled a demolition permit late July to basically gut it.

    No indication if this is to prepare the space for a specific new tenant, but more likely make it easier to market by showing a large open space that potential new tenants can imagine.

    I want Palomino back.

    I would hope the churches, the Morehead Inn, the Woman’s Club building and The Addison would be protected at the least. And the Mayes House will be preserved as part of that brewery. That leaves quite a lot for development 

    Edit: The med school should buy the woman’s club building and make it an event space or welcome center

    Is that the building next to Dilworth Neighborhood Grille?  If so, that's Mrs. Howard, a very high-end interior furnishings store.  It's beautiful outside and stunning inside.  I would absolutely advocate for keeping that intact.

  8. A good friend of mine moved here from RIC about 3 years ago.  He’s part owner in Ardent, if you know them.  Anyway I asked him for his sound bite thoughts and he said: “Charlotte is very liveable similar to Richmond.  But if you like the “cool richmond,” it’s going to be a lot less cool here. But you will find people and places that are.”

    So… I don’t know if that was helpful to anyone… I just thought I had something relevant to add to the mix.
