Unwind & Dine in Historic South End


  • March 31, 2017
    4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Historic South End is just right outside the Uptown business district and has been described as the fastest growing area of Charlotte to live, work, and play.  On this tour along the (Light) Rail Trail, we will kick the weekend off with a “Happy Hour theme”.  We will explore the diversity of establishments that cater to the story and history of this once industrial neighborhood as well as popular ways to enjoy refreshing beverages paired with unique cuisine experiences.  That may be at a comfortable wine bar, a local craft brewery, an upscale restaurant, or the neighborhood cafe.  We will even learn how to create great beverages & bites in the luxury of your own home!

Price: $60 per person
