Hotdogs and beers. Peanuts and Cracker Jacks. The seventh-inning stretch and belting out “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.” All the classics that you’d expect at a baseball game, but there’s more! When you come out to see the Charlotte Knights play at the BB&T Ballpark, you’re treated to the full Queen City experience. I mean, let’s just start with this view…Read More
Our furry littles also love exploring out and about the Queen City, and luckily for Charlotteans, there are many places that embrace having our four-legged kids around! I mean, let’s face it. Life is better with dogs around!
So for the inside scoop on some of the city’s dog-friendly offerings, we turned to a local native who knows the ins-and-outs of the city–Quincy, the dog! Instagram’s @Crooked.Ear.Quincy is @Kaylbee87’s not-so-little furball who is a lab mix, busy doing doggy business, which includes going on long walks on urban greenways, hiking trails, and posing for adorable pics for his dog-mama. In this interview, Quincy shares with us his most favorite outdoor activities and pro tips, so you and yours can also enjoy the great CLT outdoors!Read More

With the mercury finally rising, we are undoubtedly in for another scorching summer. So what are you to reach for when trying to beat the summer heat? May I suggest grabbing some fresh seasonal fruit and mixing yourself up some homemade agua fresca. A staple in Mexican culture with a basic recipe of fruit, water, and sugar, agua frescas are slowly gaining popularity on this side of the border. So when Kriska asked me to help come up with drinks for a fiesta themed engagement party, an agua fresca bar was a no-brainer. The best part is that they are fairly easy to make, and all you need is a trusty blender and a mesh strainer or cheese cloth for that refreshing taste!Read More
We discovered Lenny Boy Brewing Co. last fall, and to be honest, I was kind of bummed it took us so long to venture out to this little gem in the Gold District! With breweries popping up left and right all over the Queen City, Lenny Boy is definitely in our top three picks. Why, you say? Well, I’m glad you asked!Read More
We LOVE throwing a great party–and when our family throws one, we spare no details, especially for our loved ones! So when our brotha from anotha motha put a ring on our cousin, we just had to throw them a fiesta!
Llamas, poms, and build-your-own bars…here are some of our favorite details and moments from the party, along with some tips for you to DIY your own next party!Read More
We’re brother and sister, pharmacists-by-trade, and our daily grind sometimes can be grueling and crazy all the same while dealing with the retail sector. So, when we have a day off, we like to make sure that post-working real hard, we play even harder. We like to eat. We like to drink. We like to […]Read More
