Travel Tips for Charlotte

Even though Charlotte is part...

by ronald_ann

Even though Charlotte is part of the bible belt, a stronger cultural trait might be that we consider ourselves 'ACC Country'. College basketball is huge here! Most everyone puts on the brakes during the playoffs. The Carolinas have so many well known college basketball teams that it really is a big deal! So... are you a Duke or a Tar Heel fan?

Charlotte . . . an antique hotbed

by acemj about Various

I'm not a big shopper at all, but if you're interested in antiques, there are plenty of stores around town to keep you busy for awhile.

The Metrolina Expo is a great place to shop for antiques and collectibles. In fact, it's the largest antiques mall in the country. Call 704-596-4643 to inquire about seasonal events. The Metrolina Expo is located at 7100 N. Statesville Rd.

You could also head down to Pineville, NC which is on the southwestern edge of Charlotte near Carolina Place Mall. The little strip of downtown Pineville has a few interesting shops. All kinds of antiques.

Don't judge the restaurant by its exterior

by etfromnc about Bar-B-Q King

There are about a half-dozen restaurants and drive-ins still doing great business which were popular high school hangouts when we were in high school. The good news is that they made it on good food and service at decent prices then and they are still in business because they still provide good food with service and fair prices. The Bar-B-Q King passed its 50th anniversary this year and they assert that the menu has not changed in those 50 years. (The prices have increased a bit.) Pete Gianikis opened the Bar-B-Q King in 1959 and operated it continuously until he sold it to his brother and nephews just six years ago.
You might guess from their name that barbecue is their specialty, and you would be right. Their barbecue style is what is often called "Eastern North Carolina." At the Bar-B-Q King, it starts with smoked pork or fried chicken. The pork is either sliced or chopped, according to your preference and a "secret" sauce, whose most prominent ingredients are tomato sauce and vinegar, is poured over it. Chicken is fried and then soaked in the barbecue sauce, which is made fresh every day. It is called Eastern North Carolina barbecue because it is "vinegar based." In addition to vinegar, which is definitely noticeable in the final product, the sauce contains brown sugar, tomato sauce, lemons, and several "secret" ingredients, primarily seasonings. They also sell some of the best homemade hushpuppies in the Charlotte area.
This is a family operation and fits another stereotype from my youth which I do not think any long-time Charlottean would dispute. The majority of the really special restaurants in Charlotte during the 1960s and '70s were owned by people of Greek heritage. The second generation of the founding family still owns the Bar-B-Q King and on any given day, you are likely to find three generations working there. Chopped pork with cole slaw and "natural cut" fries.

The food is almost as good as the advertising

by etfromnc about Pie Town

The folowing description is from an e-mail which I received regarding a relatively new "pizzeria"(?) in Charlotte. The food is excellent but the advertising is what got me in their door.
"Pie Town approaches each pizza as a work of crusted art, with local ingredients weaving in and out of each pie like the woodwinds in a cheese-based concerto. Pie Town uses both classic and 12-grain crusts as doughy circumferences for its pizza creations. Pie Town's pies are cooked for less than three minutes in the 800-degree heat of the restaurant's oven. When pizzas are done cooking, they are immediately brought to the table for inspection by the customer's taste buds. Acclaimed pizzas on Pie Town's dinner menu include the margherita ($12), which employs mozzarella cheese from the Chapel Hill Creamery , and the Bacon and Egg ($13), where the eggs cook atop the piping hot pizza like magnifying-glassed ants on a bacon-and-arugula sidewalk. An assortment of traditional toppings ($2 each), such as pepperoni and Italian sausage, are also available as slingshot ammunition. Pie Town also serves a selection of appetizers ($5-$6), salads ($6-$7), and desserts such as gelato du jour or chocolate fondue with strawberries, marshmallows, and Rice Krispies treats ($7).
"Pie Town is a member of the Sonoma Restaurant Group, alongside Charlotte staples Sonoma, Aria, and Press. Pie Town's relaxed atmosphere welcomes community and conversation, while its strict 'no mountain lion' policy keeps bobcats begging for scraps outside.
"Prices quoted are for dinner; lunch pricing is slightly lower." The bacon and egg pizza. Please read the above comments to see why I fell in love with it before, I ever saw it, BUT it was excellent.

Charlotte Museum of History

by b1bob

There are four exhibit areas in the modern and ornate main building: the beginnings, transitions, and connections galleries as well as a temporary gallery in the east wing of the second floor (as of March, 2004 the exhibit was "Soldiers Stories: war in the first person"). Corridors can be used for temporary exhibit space. In the Great Hall, there was a bagpiper there and a talk was given on Scottish history. That fits because Charlotte was originally settled by people of Scottish and Irish descent. Mark and I got an overview of what Charlotte looked like in 1775- pretty much a small crossroads town with 200 or so citizens, rather like Virgilina today. We looked at many of the exhibits here, but the inescapable whine of the bagpipes grated at me, so we were off to some of the outer exhibits.

MONEY SAVING TIP: If you can, go on Sunday. It's free to everybody.
