Charlotte has a variety of options for night life. There is an abundance of restaurants and bars in the Charlotte uptown and surrounding metro area and everything has its own unique charm. The big thing about this area is local, everything for the most part is in-house from the brew selection to the live music selections. There are all types of food and beer festivals that take place throughout the year, one of the most recognized being "Taste of Charlotte" which features manu samples from many local restaurants in the Charlotte area.

Favorite dish is chimichanga from Chico's. Great taste!
I live in an area that has just about everything you could ever need all within 5 miles. There is a mall with anchor stores like Macy's as well as many places to eat of all price ranges. There is also a Super Target, Lowe's and Best Buy as well as many other retails of all sizes.
