My Favorite Charlotte Restaurants

Patio at Foxcroft Wine Co.  Image via AmericasCuisine.com. Happy Friday!  I had a request a while back to round up my favorite places to eat in Charlotte, so here they are, just in time for the weekend.  I LOVE food (too much), so this was a fun one to write and made me really hungry!  I honestly complain about the food scene in Charlotte, but after writing this list, it made me realize we have some pretty legit restaurants.  I definitely tend to stick with what I know, and all of these below are in the rotation.  Lance and I also make a list of new places to try each year, so I have listed those below as well.

Vegan Update: Week 4

Oatmeal with granola, almond butter, and banana. Happy Monday!  We are OFFICIALLY in the homestretch of our 30 day vegan diet!!  I am actually having my first non-vegan meal on Wednesday night (the 30th day) because I am going out for a birthday dinner and I’ll be honest: I’m just not going out again and eating vegan!  I went out with a girlfriend last week who was in town visiting.  She wanted to try a new restaurant, Zeppelin.  I was eager to try it, too!  They are known for having great cocktails and interesting small plates.  Well, it turned out I was getting my eyebrows done the next day (permanent makeup), so I couldn’t drink alcohol.  To make matters worse, […]

Vegan Update: Week 3

Happy Monday!!  First of all, THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who donated to my fundraiser for the Sherry Spin-Along.  Sherry is a personal friend of mine and I truly believe that these dollars go towards saving her life and others, so it is very close to my heart.  THANK YOU, THANK YOU.  I was overwhelmed by the number of people who donated.  Because of you I was the number one fundraiser (if you don’t count Martin and Sherry, which I don’t LOL)! The donation site will be open for the rest of the week, so if you didn’t get a chance there is still time!  I received donations from $10-$1000 and I’m equally thankful for all of them!!  EVERY […]
