Getting to Know the Queen
Or more precisely, the Queen City.
I have lived in North Carolina since 1995 but rarely have spent any time in Charlotte. My collective experience is either stopping by for a bank withdrawal on my way to South Carolina or a random soccer tournament for my son.
Here are some things I have learn about Charlotte:
-the radio sucks
-don't think about trying to turn left or right in Uptown
-people like to tailgate
-it is a city unto itself
-everybody looks the same
-NoDa is a breath of fresh air
-the laundromat doesn't take quarters
-shit is expensive in the city
-driving will require at least one encounter with 485 or 77
-it seems bigger than it really is
