Travel Tips for Charlotte

UNCC Athletic Programmes

by b1bob

UNCC is most known for its basketball team, but there are other sports like track and field, baseball, soccer, and tennis. Even among native Charlotteans, the UNCC basketball team takes a back seat to Duke or the University of North Carolina, depending on whom you talk to.

Blumenthal Performing Arts

by acemj

Blumenthal Performing Arts Center/Belk Theater.
If you're interested in the arts, get tickets to a show and grab a bite to eat at one of the many elegant Uptown restaurants. Recently, such Broadway staples as Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables have passed through town. You can also see the Charlotte Symphony here. Dress up.

Brazilian, anyone?

by b1bob about Brazas

Rodizio is one of my favourite styles of serving. You know this type of restaurant is getting popular nationwide when we have one in both Charlotte and Richmond as well as the biggest American cities. Rodizio involves a lot of meat being carved in front of you at your table as well as a hot bar with many things including feijoada and a bar with all manner of greens. The occasion was Mark's 32d birthday and I wanted to, for once, treat in his home town. The service was excellent especially from Paulo, the guy who came to the table and carved meat for us. The waitress is Mexican and speaks Spanish. Paulo is from Buzios, Estado do Rio de Janeiro, so I was speaking both Spanish and Portuguese. At the salad bar, I had hearts of palm and some salad very similar to the salsa taken at the Cabo Fish Taco place earlier that day. Of course, I wouldn't go to a rodizio without feijoada, just like I wouldn't go without an Antarctica guarana. The meat served to us included alligator (my first go of it was right good- it was cooked in the same kind of herbed butter sauce used with escargots), rabbit (I wonder if they carry on serving that particular cut of meat on Easter Sunday), pork, beef, and sausage. Overall the food was very good with two exceptions. First, the salad bar's selection was lacklustre and not only because it did not have those little-bitty quail eggs you see at Brazilian churrascarias everywhere. Second, the only chicken offered in the place was chicken parmesan offered at the hot food bar instead of being cut from a skewer at the table.

Surprised

by etfromnc about TGIFridays

What is happening to this chain? When I lived in Texas, there was a TGIFridays within five minutes of my office, and it was always packed. I may have gotten an incorrect impression that this chain is much more popular than it actually is. On my way to and from work in Charlotte, I used to drive by one twice a day but did not stop at this one (probably because it was on the "wrong side" of a divided highway as I head home) until earlier this year. I was also surprised that there were only two of them in Charlotte. One was on Independence Blvd between Vantage Lincoln-Mercury and Town & Country Ford and the other is in the University area across W. T. Harris from the Hilton.
The food was better than the service which was not bad just not as good as I remember from Texas.
As I write this, the one on Independence has closed its doors. The one in the University area is still there, however. They have a series of entrees featuring a Jack Daniels sauce. I thought that it provided an outstanding accent to both the steak and salmon, and the sauce did not taste at all of alcohol.

Mint Museum of Fine Art

by acemj

The Mint used to be the U.S. Mint and the building itself was moved from Uptown Charlotte to its present location on Randolph Rd. (which is 4th Street).
The permanent collection focuses on art from the Americas (North, South and Central) and includes North Carolina Pottery, Colonial American Art and my personal favorite, The Spanish Colonial paintings. You can see a lot of influence from the Catholic Church as well as from Native American cultures in this colorful collection.
Try to go on a Tuesday night after 5pm when it's FREE.
