  • The Dan Band Comes to Charlotte

    Related Image

    So you read the title and now you feel like you should know who The Dan Band is. Or probably, why do you know who The Dan Band is? Well, if you’re a fan of THE HANGOVER or OLD SCHOOL then you definitely know why! The band made their television debut on OLD SCHOOL with “Total Eclipse of The Heart” - a very foul-mouthed, hilarious, “what-did-he-just-say” version of the song.

    The band is known to take classic women sung songs and turn them into an amazing rendition you want to hear all of the time. In fact, if you’re like most guys after watching these movies, you wanted them to play at your wedding. Well guess what? YOU CAN! I’m not saying you can afford them or they’ll be available, but you can contact them and see if they’ll perform at your wedding too.

    So when will they be in Charlotte? Mark your calendars for NOVEMBER 7th at The Fillmore in the NC Music Factory. They are well-known to have sold-out shows...

  • Get Saucy: Charlotte's Best Wings

    Related Image

    As a New Yorker, I appreciate a good dozen of wings while watching football. There’s nothing like the smell of buffalo wing sauce and a cold beer while watching your favorite team dominate the opponent. When I first moved here, I was worried I wouldn’t have the same atmosphere down South. Immediately, I was proven wrong. For all of the newbies in Charlotte, here’s a list we’ve compiled of the best wings in Charlotte:
    Mac’s Speed Shop-Southend
    If you’re looking for size and flavor, head over to Southend and order the wings at Mac’s Speed Shop. The wings are different than the usual fryer simply because they are smoked and then grilled…rather than fried. Not only is the smoky flavor prevalent, but the sauces seem to absorb better!
    The Roasting Co.-South Park
    If you’re looking for tasty and inexpensive, you have found your mecca. The Roasting Co. offers a large array of all delicious things chicken. If...
