Aye!! It’s #AriesSeason! ♈🤗 Well not me but my S/O. 💁🏽 For his birthday, a few weeks ago, we spent the weekend in Charlotte, NC. I thought it would cool being that he’d never had a chance to fully experience Charlotte. Plus I got us VIP tickets to got see Big K.R.I.T!! 🙌🏽 Since we drove I thought we’d make it a mini road trip. 🚗 I had so many things planned so I was super excited the whole time. I’m not really good at holding out for surprises so he knew about the tickets 🤦🏽 but everything else was a surprise.
The drive from Atlanta was about 3 1/2 hours, so we decided to leave early so we could explore a little before the concert. (And I needed a haircut.)
We stayed at the Hyatt Place in Uptown Charlotte right in the middle of everything. I scored a good deal on Booking.com for a room on the top floor. 😁 After we checked in, we decided to grab a bite and check out the barbershop. We took the LINX to one of my favorite places in Charlotte, 7th Street Public Market. We found this cute Italian shop, Zia Pia Imports, and had some pastries.
We walked to Levine Museum before my haircut. It was really cool seeing the history of Charlotte in their interactive exhibits. We were running a little late after my haircut and had to rush to the concert. We checked in to get our VIP badges and waited for the show to start.
The show was at the Fillmore which wasn’t too far from the hotel. The tour included Childish Major (who is actually from SC 🌴), CYHi the Prynce, and of course Big K.R.I.T. The show was great. I have some highlights on my #TRAVELGUIDE insta-story! Check it out and come back for part 2 next week!
