  1. Dilworth Projects (Kenilworth, Morehead, East)

    I think it's great that East Blvd Bar and Grill's new location @ LP is so focused on the sidewalk. The windows rollup on nice days, there is an outpocket of tables outside and the bar is also front and center from the street. Along with 131 Main's outdoor dining space they have added a nice boost of urban life to the block.

    Maybe these stories stem from overzealous individual employees, who knows but it's odd that they are coming from two separate clubs. Especially since Halos prior incarnation as G&G went out of it's way to market itself as gay friendly. I noticed the rehab going on at the old Liasons spot too. Would be great if the house was correctly restored, has good bones and could look great again. That balcony sure is rickety. There have been some packed late nights out there where floor did not feel all that stable

    I was hoping the rumors about Halo were unfounded. So hateful if it's true. We have packs of straight girls that go to our bars to relax without being hit on along with cool straight guys. We don't break up their good time. I don't have much to add about dance clubs since I can't dance and never went to Velocity when it was open. I have had fun at Scorpio during the drag shows on Sunday, loved seeing all the diversity.

    ^ hmmm, interesting thanks for the info...we shall see. Would be nice to keep the old pink house in the family time to share my rumor.....I heard that employees at Halo are breaking up guys that are dancing together since it's gone "straight". Anyone seen this there or in any other club in Charlotte?

    The latest edition of Q-Notes questions the lack of gay inclusive ordinances in Charlotte when compared to other metro areas of NC. No need to rehash it, just the same litany of examples we have talked about on here for years. What did grab my attention was Jennifer Roberts statement that DP's on the county level will most likely be brought up for discussion in the next month. The public hearings might be contentious but I think we have a pretty supportive majority to get it passed.

    Sounds good, I will have to stop by. I like "Dilend" will have to borrow that....much easier than Dilworth/Southend. They really do blend together in that area.

    From the pics I saw on CLT Blog, Outparade looked great. I ended up having to miss it. Last night there was a candidates forum at the Community Center. My meeting ran too late for me to go Good turnout and a friend just told me that John Lassiter was there along with Anthony Foxx and other council candidates. I am pretty surprised that the former showed up. McCrory was never willing to meet us and engage in any type of dialogue.

    I never made it to Frankies. All along I thought it was a locally owned joint. Another high profile spot goes dark along with Rock n Lobster on East. Hope they both get new life soon.
  9. Perception of Charlotte Nationwide

    I think it's quite sad if Charlotte's biggest selling point is " Come here it's cheap because we have no building or green standards, we don't care how we grow just give us the money". There is something to quality of life in regards to planning and our lack of attention to this aspect continues to hurt us now and will in the longterm.
  10. Charlotte Center City 2020 Vision Plan

    In the past few years Charleston has made a concerted effort to revert one way streets two way in congested parts of the peninsula. It has helped to slow the traffic. Of course we are comparing two different urban worlds but generally one way streets can become racetracks. Like so many others my biggest wish is to have substantial storefront retail. And I know the powers that be are working on it. Until that comes central Charlotte to me will continue to feel sterile and lack the intangible "buzz" one feels in other cities that have a walkable retail heart.

    That's true. The Uptown march went through a lot of rolling tumbleweed territory last time. Also, I can't seem to find the starting time for this thing. Maybe someone at the Keith Boykin speech tonight at UNC Charlotte will know.
  13. Charlotte Pride

    ^ I am Trying to cajole others to go with me but all I ever seem to get in return is " I don't like politics" or I am not an activist" I went solo to the last march in Uptown so I can do it again.

    I completely agree that gay targeted tourism efforts are way down on the totem pole when it comes to priorities. I just wish the CL article had mentioned that one of the primary obstacles to such outreach is the blatant homophobia of our Mayor and the silly fear of the "gay" issue among some CVB leaders. Tomorrow at UNCC's Mcknight Hall OUTSpoken Presents: Keith Boykin Starts at 7pm Keith Boykin, renowned author, TV comentator for MSNBC, BET, and CNN, and LGBTQ rights advocate comes to UNC Charlotte to discuss One More River to Cross: Black & Gay in America

    ^I think we can declare RL dead. They have been dark for several days. The loss of jobs is regrettable but the place never made sense to me. East is a tough market but good concepts do well.
