On Saint Patrick’s day there were lines of people in green. This photo shows a line of hungry people at the Halal Food Cart.
There were also lines, at the entrance of every bar. Thirsty people in green 😉
This photo was taken at the intersection of Trade and Tryon.
This was a quick snap in the Latta Arcade. It is a good place to grab lunch. Also, the old photos on the wall are enjoyable. However, the most enjoyable aspect is found at the end the arcade … it opens on to an open air pavilion which is lined with bars.
This photo was taken at 320 South Tryon.
Today was overcast and rainy. A stay inside sort of day. So for our outing we strolled through the Overstreet Mall to Amalie’s.
From the photo, you can see that Amalie’s is fun and eclectic.
As regulars we recommend Amalie’s for the atmosphere, wine, food, and for their baguettes. Oh, and their pastries a very good too.
Amalie’s French Baker is at 380 South College.
Seriously, this is the line to order at Johnny Burrito in Uptown Charlotte. And the line is just as long every day of the week.
Their tag line is Putting the Heat on the Street. And they have been named Charlotte’s BEST Burrito by everyone!
Johnny Burrito is at 301 South Tryon suite 55
We highly recommend beignets at the Fig Tree Restaurant near Uptown Charlotte.
They have great food but our preference is to sit at the bar, enjoy appetizers with a bottle of wine, and top it off with a beignet.
The Fig Tree is at 1601 E. 7th.
PS: Mark is the bartender.

The good morning special at Dean and Deluca in Uptown Charlotte was French Toast and bacon. And the gentleman behind the sign skillfully and graciously prepares our breakfast every Saturday. We always order bagel sandwiches but the special was very appealing. But what caught my eye was the #goodmorning hashtag (smile).

Earlier this week we enjoyed drinks and a meal at our favorite spot, the bar at the Dunhill Hotel. Today we are sharing this photos of the Dunhill sunflowers on display in the lobby.
