Oh its not a breakfast place. Its a 3am drunken place.

Yeah and it’s awful.  It’s sad that in the U.S. we have such low standards for late night food.  In Europe you should see the late night options and even in NY.  It’s not just frozen drive thru food and eggs.  We need to raise our standards.

No offense, but Waffle House is probably the worst breakfast place I’ve ever eaten at.  There are way better diners around town: Landmark Diner, Skyland, Redeye, Midnight, BigView Diner,  Stacks, etc.  

Well now you’re just trying to start a fight. We go to Landmark and Stack’s only because they might be more convenient at times, never because we prefer them. Once you’ve had WF hash browns there is no going back.

Lol not trying to start a fight, just stating my opinion.  And also Stacks has fresh squeezed orange juice and good quality coffee.  Unlike Waffle House which gets that God awful Tropicana and watery coffee.

Coffee & Juice isn't what I go to Waffle House for, which I think saying they have a bad breakfast is a bad take. Never had a bad breakfast from there, and I've had about 2 dozen bad breakfasts living in New York City the past 11 years.

I don't think people are going to waffle House for the quality anyway. It's cheap, quick, and easy and best of all open 24/7 unless there is a literal catastrophic disaster happening.

Love some Waffel House; scattered, smothered, covered, chunked, with a fried egg on top. YUM.

How about an EpiCentre branch of this place:  https://www.facebook.com/KnifeandForkCharlotte/   Many moons ago (summer of '89, to be exact), when I was just out of grad school and had to take a night shift job in Charlotte to pay the rent, this restaurant (located on Sharon Amity at the time) was my go-to place when I had late-night hunger pangs after work.  I remember going there a time or two with a teacher from Chicago who was working in the same place with me that summer.  Maybe it was just because I was so hungry and there were few other options at that hour, but I thought the food was good.

Was just at Epi picking stuff up at CVS. All I have to say is wow. Place is transformed. Actually a place I would go if was always like this.

 

Mountain Dew as taken over Howel at the moon. Inside is gutted but not only that reimagined the facade facing inwards. Dramatic improvement.

 

Express has has taken over Vida. Gutted inside it’s a legit clothing store.

 

State Farm has taken over Vida Vida with what looks like an arcade bar.

 

Staircase leading to Howell has been refurbished. No longer is like something third world. Other stair case by strike city still out of Baghdad

 

Fresh paint in places.

 

Signage that is excellent and doubles as aesthetic improvements.

 

 

Please don’t reverse this all next Monday

 

 

 

^ in other words, the CEO of Krispy Kreme needs to take some pics of the epicenter for us.

Did the NBA repair the rusted staircases while they were putting advertising everywhere?  That would be awesome.  The repair state of the Epicenter needs all the help it can get.

Lipstick on a pig! Thankfully it has improved slightly over the past month. Regardless - Epicentre is in desperate need of a management or ownership change.  :tw_wink:

I'm kind of sad they didn't turn Enso into the NBA on TNT studio with Shaq, Paul, etx (that is going at the Filmore).  I'll be that way after work to check out the place.  Just seems with Enso's size and prime location on the 1st floor, they would have done something with it.  I am going to miss the pop up shops all around the city though.  Imagine if Enso, Whiskey River, & Howl were all retail (something besides food & bev)...would be pretty cool.  I can't remember who I ran into a while back...said the owners are seriously working on bringing in some soft goods retail and specifically mentioned Enso as some type of clothing store.   Not sure how credible the source, but there's that.  There is a watch and jewelry type store in the btw too (across from Mortimers)...not sure the brands.

I saw Charles Barkley in the overstreet walkway this afternoon near Uncle Maddio's. It feels weird seeing famous people in the overstreet walkway.

I talked to a security guard at my building today and he said they were going to close off some of the entrances to the epicenter.

Sir Charles is the one back in 1991 that said Charlotte was boring.  Wonder what he thinks today. 

Probably smart not to ask ;)

I hussled past a very tall man in a very swanky suit in Overstreet today. It didn't dawn on my for 45 minutes that it may have been a famous basketball player. The native NYer in me just wanted him to get the -- out of my way.
