    There are many benefits to living in Charlotte; the booming brewery scene, being in between the beach and the mountains for easy access road trips, Bojangles'. But maybe one of my favorite Charlotte perks is brunching on a patio in late November.

    The Charlotte City Council held a surprise vote this morning in which they rescinded a non-discrimination ordinance passed in February with the understanding that it would lead to the full repeal of the infamous House Bill 2 by the North Carolina General Assembly as soon as tomorrow. Governor-elect Roy Cooper released a statement following the city council's vote stating that he has been told by NCGA leaders that a special session will be called for tomorrow with the goal of fully repealing House Bill 2, which is credited with losing the state millions of dollars in revenue due to boycotts and lost opportunities for economic development.

    Dec 14, 2016 | Creative Loafing

    Four centuries after William Shakespeare's death, Charlotte's own Chickspeare inhabits a parallel universe. Or maybe it's retribution: while all of the Bard's works were performed by all-male theatre troupes, all of Chickspeare's productions since 1998 have been "All women! All the time!" as originally promised.

  9. Sentiment shifts on harm reduction practices in addiction treatment circlesRead the original story w/Photo

    Dec 14, 2016 | Creative Loafing

    It was a comment made almost in passing that struck me the hardest as I wrapped up a 30-minute conversation with Cat Glenn, co-founder of Band Against Heroin, volunteer with the North Carolina Harm Reduction Coalition and employee at Choices for Recovery, a holistic rehab facility in Charlotte. After spending a half-hour discussing stats, practices and theories surrounding opioid addiction and ways to treat it, I turned off my recorder and continued to chat with Glenn, whom I had met a year ago while working on a story about a rash of overdoses that had struck her circle of friends and other folks in the Plaza Midwood neighborhood.

    Dec 14, 2016 | Creative Loafing

    I could recount the shameless political sufferings we all reckoned to resolve against our personal ethos; or the over 700 people killed by police since January; or the absence of a progressive agenda to score equal academic achievement for the 133,000 students walking into Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools each day. I could even cement the stinging feeling of fear and anger that met me the day it was announced the police officer who shot and killed Keith Lamont Scott would not be convicted for his crime.

    Who knew noodles, cheese, eggs, milk and a few other simple seasonings would be enough to keep humans salivating for centuries? Macaroni and cheese is serious business here in the South, and discussing the rich iconic dish this close to the holidays is a sure way to either make someone's mouth water, start a great conversation or start a big argument about the best way to make it. While no one knows exactly who made the very first pan of ooey gooey deliciousness that has decorated tables across this country for generations, the first recipe for macaroni and cheese is believed to have originated somewhere in Italy.
