my fun weekend....

As of late, I've been enjoying my title as country bumpkin again. However, it is so nice to get out and enjoy good food and good friends in a more sophisticated atmosphere of the city. Charlotte and surrounding suburbs are so close to where we're at but travel 45 minutes away and it is like you are in a different world. This weekend, we were treated to a gallery crawl in Historic South End and despite the drizzly weather, James showed us an amazing spot at The Common Market, which is sort of a hipster convenience store with all the necessities and an amazing beer and wine selection. The best part of a Friday evening? You are invited to buy an adult beverage and enjoy it on their patio. Too cool. Live music to boot! They also have an amazing sandwich counter which includes your choice of breads and great meats, cheeses and spreads. I had an amazing Reuben and Mike & James got the Pimento Deluxe. Normally, it comes with bacon, made on site with local pork from Grateful Growers Farms. Apparently this bacon is so amazing, they were clean out of it, so the boys subbed in some ham. I can't wait to go back and try the bacon!
