I'm usually not interested in something that has gone "pop." Music, fashion, art—once it goes pop (pop=popular=mainstream=everybody's doing it) it usually loses its flavor, loses its appeal, loses the originality that made you love it in the first place. Pop Life is just the opposite. It has all of those elements intact and I'm a big fan. Pop Life is the weekly Wednesday after-work social presented by Creative Loafing and The Sol Kitchen. It started as a summer series last year at Prevue in NoDa, and it was so popular that they extended it through the fall. Now after a hiatus, a hibernation during the cold I guess (it returned for one night during CIAA week), the eclectic networking event is back.

Pop Life kicks off tomorrow, Wednesday, April 30 at 6 p.m. And it will be running each week until it needs another break, I guess. It's at a new location, Loft 1523 (1523 Elizabeth Ave.). This is a perfect place for the event, and I commend the organizers for switching it up and bringing it to another part of the city, the Elizabeth area. There is no admission fee, and you can expect to find some beautiful, young professional, progressive people. If you're looking for something to do on a Wednesday night, I recommend you go here. If you already have a routine of places you visit on Wednesdays, I suggest you revise it and start your night off here.

This is the second place/event I've blogged about recently that made the list of "Best Places to Meet People," that I helped compile for Charlotte magazine earlier this year. That list, as is the case with Pop Life, are proof that there is stuff to do in Charlotte. You just have to know where to look—so look.
