Where I stayed
Jon and Des'

Friday, August 17, 2012

Today we arrived in Charlotte, NC via Emily and Chris' car. When we arrived we met two of their close friends, Des and Jon. Both of which are talented artist and all around great people. The two couples took us to an area of Charlotte known as NoDa where many local artists display and sell their work. Des and Jon were of the artists that set up a table. We got a chance to explore the area and eat some great food.
We went and ate at a place called Cabo Fish Taco which was absolutely amazing! My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Later we walked around the area to different spots such as the Dog Bar, which is a bar that allows members to bring their dogs. There is AstroTurf everywhere and the dogs are free to roam and interact with one another. This was great because we both love dogs and got see and pet a wide range of dogs. After that we went to a really great beer shop, Salud, that carries many different micro-brews that can't be found in grocery stores. Chris bought us a really cool Belgium beer company pin that reads, "I love bikes." Perfect, huh? Lastly, we went to a bar/concert hall named The Evening Muse. There we were able to see a band from Boston play. They were great and at one point they asked how we were doing. Chris took the opportunity to tell the lead singer about our grand adventure that we are on. The lead singer announced it to the bar and asked us a few questions about our trip. Seconds later the owner of the bar came over to us and let us know that we could have a beer on the house. Everyone was so nice. A few people came up to us and asked us about our experience so far and gave advice for biking in the area. It was a great night with great people!
