QC Food Stops

My friend Shelley, who I went to college with, is a Brand Influencer for Revital U coffee. She messaged me a few weeks ago and asked me if I would be interested in some samples and letting her know what I thought.

I said, sure. Who doesn't love free samples?

Revital U coffee gives you a boost of energy, helps improve your mental focus and helps in weight loss. Um yes, send me all the samples, please.

Shelley told me about how she got involved with RevitalU and how much it helped her with her energ...

🎤Sweet dreams are made of cheese, who am I to diss a Brie?

Charcuterie board for the win last night!

I stopped by The Daily Tavern, a watering hole that opened in December to catch up with a friend. We snacked on this yummy charcuterie board and beef jerky in a Mason jar.  The menu was outstanding; I love that it’s not typical bar food.

The Daily location has soooo many fun memories for me. Where are my Charlotteans ? In 2000, The Rhino Club opened in this space and was pretty swanky for Uptown...

I popped into Freshii today to grab a quick bite to eat. 

I had the Pangoa Bowl (brown rice, avocado, aged cheddar, cherry tomatoes, black beans, corn, cilantro, lime wedge and fiery bbq sauce). 

It was delicious. 

After I ordered the guy behind the counter goes “are you Jenna?” (Uh oh! What did I do now? LoL ) It was Anthony that I had met through CharBar7 when we threw my Dad’s birthday a few years ago. He’s the GM over at Freshii at Piedmont Row. 

After I ate lunch, Anthony was kind enough to bri...

Don’t mind me. Just over here at Hi Tide Poke & Raw Bar stuffing my face & sampling beers. 

After Jackie and I hit Arrichion hot yoga & circuit training (more on that later), we were starving. Thanks to my girl Alyssa for her snaps of her yummy bowl she had yesterday at Hi Tide, we had to go check it out. 

So what is a poke bowl? Basically it's a fish salad. If you don't like seafood, this probably won't be a good spot for you, although they do have Hawai'ian Roll Sliders with beef; besides t...

Without rain, nothing ever grows. Learn to embrace the storms of your life.

Somedays life calls for an umbrella. This cold rainy Monday after a Panthers loss definitely did. 

Ouch - what a way to end the season. So many missed opportunities. That missed field goal - ugh! We had a good season and I’m looking forward to seeing what the guys will do next season. 2018 will be our year - I can feel it! 

"Somedays life calls for an umbrella"

I know it’s winter, but it’s been extremely cold for C...

Today I had to run numerous errands up near Statesville and Concord. Of course I stumbled upon some abandoned gems and had to stop and investigate. 

I have no idea why I am drawn to abandoned places. I am always curious to the story behind how they became abandoned or at one time, was there a family that was happy there? Or a successful business?

I stumbled upon this house on Hwy 601. There was no address on the mailbox and I didn’t want to trespass, but it was in the 6400 Bloc...

I have a new favorite spot to grab a yummy lunch in Uptown. 

3 tacos and a side for $10 - SOLD. 204 North does it right! 

Be sure to stop by and check out their delicious food menu as well as their specialized cocktails menu (I love the Ballentyne).

Need a spot to host a party? Their upstairs dining area is perfect. Tons of room with a full bar and a great view of Tryon, it's a perfect spot. Tell Anthony I sent ya! 

If you drive about 15 minutes North of Asheville, North Carolina there sits a small town named Marshall that overlooks the 3rd oldest river in the world, the French Broad River. Marshall sits in Madison County and is "one street wide and a mile long" town named after the 4th US President James Madison. It has a population of roughy 1K residents. "Proud of our past, excited about our future" is the towns slogan. The town has succeeded in preserving its history and habits of a slower time....

I popped by the Bottle Cap Groups new spot WU's Cajun Sea Food on South Blvd today. 


Wu's, formerly Nan and Byron's, formerly Vinnie's has always been a hot spot in SouthEnd. I have been going to this address since the 90s!

 I will fill you in as construction has just started but like all Bottle Cap Group establishments, expect a fun atmosphere with memorable food.

I am wondering when construction is going to start on the Graham Street Pub or if this location is just cursed.

Graham Street Pub has been described as the new rooftop bar that is located on Graham Street between Bank of America Stadium and BBT Ballpark (400 S Graham Street). This area needs more bars. With the amount of foot traffic for Carolina Panthers games and Charlotte Knights games, the fans deserve more options.  

GSP is scheduled to open "Spring 2017" but from wha...
