Get Your 'Taste of Charlotte'

Posted by Jarvis Holliday On 6/05/2008 No comments
Taste of Charlotte kicks off tomorrow and runs through Saturday. It literally takes over the streets of uptown. This is your opportunity to sample dishes from some of the area's most popular restaurants, including Mert's Heart & Soul, Dilworth Neighborhood Grille, Monticello, City Tavern, and Matt's Chicago Dog. The three-day festival also features live entertainment by singers, bands, and belly dancers. Plus, there's a marketplace where you'll find handmade jewelry, glass pieces, wood crafts, art, and the like. If I was a vendor I'd be selling bottled waters. Because this week is hotter than Satan's toenails. (Katt Williams said that in First Sunday.)

You can pretty much expect some sort of festival to take place about every other week in Charlotte from now through October, actually beginning with last month. And as with Taste of Charlotte, most of them center around eating and drinking. It's the American way.
