The paparazzi are coming to Charlotte ... for you (well, and Marquee Saturday at Halo and the Charlotte Film Festival)

I know, I know ... Charlotte is no N.Y.C. or L.A., but it's still a metropolitan city worthy of red carpet events - and we're rolling out the red carpet for YOU.

Halo event

Sleeping Giant Productions is going to be E! and I will be the red carpet correspondant. And Sleeping Giant doesn't sleep on anything, so come red carpet ready ... although renting hundreds of thousands of dollars in jewelry, wearing a specialty made designer dress, and getting a colonic are not required. Just dress to impress (yourself).

Miami's Mark Leventhal will be DJ'ing with opening DJ Charlotte's own D-Rock. When a DJ has an opening act, you know he's good ... just saying. AND - DJ R Wonz, DJ Rob Reeves and DJ Fotizo will be spinning on the patio

Speaking of red carpets and paparazzi ...

This past year while attending the Sundance Film Festival I thought to myself ... Charlotte should have a film festival. Turns out, we do ... and parties too. But I highly doubt I'll have another moment with Paris Hilton in the bathroom of the event locations: Whisky River, Blackfinn, or Therapy, as I did at Sundance. See a list of film festival festivities here

Hopefully, I'll see you Saturday, but either way, just remember that you don't need to be taking a bite of the big apple or off in la la land to walk the red carpet.
