    Nice city wish I could have done more when I was there but had a short stay.
    Sistas was looking right :whoo:

    In some ways I kind of like Charlotte more than Atlanta. But they are two totally different cities. It was just good to see black folks holding it down.

    Got a wack haircut from someplace don't remember the name.

    Food was straight. Lulus and Cuzzo Cuisine stood out.

    Drivers are kind of wild out there :hubie:

    Went through some neighborhood that had a whole bunch of BLM stuff kind of remind me of some neighborhoods in the bay.

    Thats all I can think of right now, but like I said dope city.

    Came across this dude's channel

    I'm gonna probably leave Charlotte once my lease is up :manny:

    I only moved here because of my work... and I got fired so I don't see any point in staying. The job market seems meh... and I don't need to live here in order to keep my tax clientele. I'm gonna spend the next year exploring shyt more though. My work life balance was 90/10 since the moment I moved here :mjpls:

    But the north east is just different. It's too slow here.

    Charlotte is getting a Black Food & Wine Festival, inspired by the Harlem Renaissance

    A Black Food & Wine three-day festival is coming to Charlotte, and you’re going to want to go ahead and save the date now for the Camp North End event: October 22-24.

    The festival is inspired by the Harlem Renaissance and will be a celebration of Black foodways, said Subrina Collier, who created the event with her husband, Greg Collier. You know the duo as the power couple behind Leah & Louise and Uptown Yolk restaurants.

    The Harlem Renaissance was the development of Harlem, New York, in the 1920s and 30s, as it became a mecca of African American art, dance, fashion, literature, music and theater. The cultural and intellectual revival was called a golden age of Black culture. Expect the Charlotte festival to educate and entertain, Subrina said in a statement.

    “We noticed a huge void in the festival scene that excluded Black chefs, Black food and Black culture,” she said. “Rather than telling other festivals to include us more, we decided to stop asking and create our own.”

    The lineup will continue to grow as the festival gets closer, but here are some of the people who have signed up:


    Black Food & Wine Festival
    Camp North End, 300 Camp Road (at the wedge between Statesville Avenue and North Graham Street)

    October 22-24

    Eat Black Charlotte started as a hashtag. Now, it’s grown into a weeklong food event.

    Hungry? Search the @eatblkclt Instagram account for immediate food recommendations curated by six local food bloggers, influencers and photographers.

    Now that you’re craving a loaded slice of pizza from Renaldo’s Culinary Experience, a red velvet waffle from Krustaceans Seafood Charlotte and the Onion Stack Smash Vegan Burger from Best of Both Souls, you can mark your calendar for Eat Black Charlotte Week, set to take place from June 4-12, 2021.

    The weeklong celebration grew its roots from the #eatblackclt hashtag, which was started by Erique Berry, Cory Wilkins, Shay Jackson, Lorri Ashly Lofton, Ryan Jones and Amber Owens with a goal to raise awareness for Charlotte’s Black-owned food businesses.

    As the Instagram account garnered more attention, Berry and Lofton teamed up with Charlotte native (and CharlotteFive writer) DeAnna Taylor and food blogger and curator Jenelle Kellam to brainstorm the idea of bringing Eat Black Charlotte Week to life, helped by sponsors Visit York County, Rachel Sutherland Communications and Snack ‘n Fun Box.

    “The mission of the page and the week is to not only highlight, but also celebrate, the city’s Black food business owners,” Taylor said. “2020 was a rough year for everyone, and it was even harder for food businesses. The EatBlkClt team wanted to amplify Black owners in an effort to help them bounce back and receive the awareness they deserve.”


    If you’ve scrolled through the Instagram account, you’re probably already hungry. Here’s what to know about Eat Black Charlotte Week:

    BRING YOUR APPETITE
    From June 4-12, Eat Black Charlotte Week will showcase prix-fixe menus from participating businesses. The celebration will end with a Food and Brew Fest from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on June 12 at The Unknown Brewing Co., complete with collaboration cocktails and beers. The celebration will come to a close at 1501 South Mint for dessert and drinks from 4-6 p.m.

    “We simply want this to be a way for the Charlotte community to come together to celebrate entrepreneurs that often get overlooked, while enjoying some of the amazing cuisine our city has to offer,” Taylor said. Get your tickets online.

    SIGN UP FOR CLASSES
    The event will also feature a series of classes for both aspiring and current food business owners. Topics include marketing, branding and funding, and will be taught by local community members including chefs Jamie Barnes and Greg Williams of What the Fries, Google Partner Latesha Byrd of Byrd Career Consulting, social media professional Asha Ellison and chef Michael Bowling of Hot Box Kitchen.

    PLAN YOUR ITINERARY
    Participating restaurants and food trucks include What the Fries, Another Food Truck, Q’s Culinary Cart, Ms. Didi’s Caribbean Kitchen, Made From Scratch NYC, Dawg’On Vegans and Jimmy Pearls. Taylor promises some of Charlotte’s “favorite and best businesses” will be on the list.
