TasteOfCharlotte

Seeing as we are new to the city, I thought it would be great if we attend the Taste of Charlotte. I could not think of a better way to see and taste what Charlotte has to offer than to attend a 3 day festival featuring food samples from restaurants in and around Charlotte.

They say the way to a man’s heart is via his tummy, this is so true for both my husband and I.

These samples were from quick food restaurants, I say this as when you attend a Taste of Joburg in South Africa, you get to sample the TOP restaurants and their signature dishes. Making it affordable for the plain Jane and average Joe to taste the “cream of the crop” dishes that they might not be able to enjoy (nor pronounce) under normal circumstances.

Along with the samples there was live music on 4 stages, entertainment, children’s activities (including a water walking roll ball and a rock wall to climb), cooking classes, shopping and lots of corporate stands (they handed out gifts and goodies ranging from sun screen lotion, sun glasses and fan – so fitting for the hot day we had).

The temperature was hovering just above 100 on the Sunday, so my main goal was to stay cool and hydrated. Not the ideal day out with littles ones but we survived.

We started the day by taking the LYNX into town, this in it self is a great outing http://www.lynxcharlotte.com. We met up with some great friends and walked a couple of blocks to Tryon Street where the festival was held. Seeing the city in day time on a weekend was amazing, the buildings are beautiful and the city so clean and quite, this made for some great photos.

Once we got into the heart of the festival, your senses were overwhelmed with the sounds of people laughing, the smells of fresh food, live music echoing through the buildings, extreme heat bouncing off the streets (made easier with the cold beer in my hand).

It was easy to forget you are only 15 minutes away from home.

The fact that you worked with coins also made the interaction with stalls much smoother. This event was a bit pricy but they will see me there next year again!

Book it in you calendar for 2017! Please remember SUNSCREEN!
