Reunited in Charlotte

Sunday, February 26, 2012

Two of my very best friends from college live in Charlotte, NC and I have never been, which is pretty crazy. I was beyond excited to finally visit the Queen City and play with Anna and Natalie - it had been 6 months since I last saw Anna and almost a year since I've seen Natalie.

I arrived Friday evening, and our first stop was the Charlotte Checkers game. They're a minor league hockey team, and I was shocked at how crowded it was. I'm pretty sure this was my first (semi) pro hockey game, and even though I'm not really into the sport we got to witness a pretty brutal fight - so that was fun!

After the game, we went to BlackFinn Saloon for dinner and drinks with some other friends.

Saturday morning we woke up, got brunch and then went shopping. Princess Natalie was a little worn out, and decided to sleep through some of our stops.

Natalie had to go to Shelby, NC for her brother's birthday dinner, so Anna and I continued to shop then came home for a nap where I got to watch CABLE TV! I have missed Bravo so much. After pulling ourselves together, we went to get a quick manicure and then grabbed dinner with Matt Melvin at Paco's Tacos. It was delish!

How amazing does the Firestarter look? I am a sucker for anything jalapeno-related, but my disgust for tequila overpowers my love for jalapenos. I'm sure if I drank tequila this would have been amazing.

After dinner, we met up with Natalie at Angry Ale's and Andrew Blair's, which are their go-to bars, and I was excited to finally get to partake. Warning: We took a lot of pictures last night, so get ready. And I'm not even including all of them.

Mel is the best bartender at Angry Ale's. And so famous.


And what's a Saturday night without a late-night trip to McDonald's? Here's our awesome cab driver, Gibril. Can't you tell he loved us?

It was seriously one of the best weekends, ever. We always have so much fun together, and I wish we all lived in the same city! Actually, that would probably be very dangerous. But still! Can't wait for our next rendezvous.
