The Fillmore @ the NC Music Factory

September 23rd, 2014 Comments Off on The Fillmore @ the NC Music Factory Listed Under: Arts & Culture, Featured Articles, Music, Things To Do Charlotte

I've been to over a dozen shows at The Fillmore and have consistantly been impressed with the quality of the bands/talent, the...Continue Reading!

December 20th, 2013 Leave A Comment Listed Under: Featured Articles, Restaurants, Things To Do Charlotte


Need to get your North Carolina BBQ fix?
