Welcome To Knowing Charlotte
There’s no telling what brought you to this site- maybe you currently live here in Charlotte, NC and are looking for info on a event coming in the next few days. Could be you’ll be traveling to our city soon and are looking for a couple of hot spots to hit up. Either way, hopefully you find some things in these pages to entice you checking out what the city has to offer.
Words here carry very little weight…
I must confess up front, this is not an insider’s guide to the city. It’s neither a definitive resource a la the Chamber of Commerce nor insight from an industry local who’s in the know. No, what you will find here are the experiences and musings of a random schlub who figured he’d write about what he’s done as justification to go out and do a bit more.
So don’t expect to find reviews. That’s not my thing. As a middle-age married father of three, some of you might suspect my taste (as well as life choices) are suspect. And you’re probably right. Instead, my aim is to provide just enough info to help you get off your ass and have a good time somewhere.
…And I’m probably just as clueless as you (if not more so)…
I’ve lived here for fifteen years and there are certain parts of town where I can count my total number of visits on one hand. Some of that is ignorance, but more than anything it’s complacency and succumbing to the daily routine of life.
Regardless the reason, I know some of you may have lived, worked or played in some of the places I have yet to venture. All voices are welcome here. Join in the fun and let me and others who lurk these pages know what’s up.
…But none of that should stop us from having a good time
So come one, come all. Share something. Learn something. If we do this right, we should find something that makes our time in Charlotte that much better.
