I'll be at the NASCARnival, but I'll be missing out on a lot in Charlotte this weekend while I drink and watch people drive.
My party picks for this weekend ...
FRIDAY: Lil Gaga will be at BAR Charlotte. Yes, I just promoted a party at BAR Charlotte. But there's a little Lady Gaga performing! That and BAR Charlotte is turning 14 years old, and it's having its birthday party this weekend. BAR Charlotte is the oldest bar in Uptown, yet it has a night for 13 and up, making the bar older than some of its patrons. People hate on BAR Charlotte all the time (guilty!), but that place has the shelf life of canned corn. Whereas a lot of bars expire more quickly... like milk.
SATURDAY: The Krawl in Plaza Midwood goes pink to "Save the Ta-Tas" in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month. Emphasis on the tatas because Big Momma's House of Burlesque will be at the Common Market, while La Petite Mort Burlesque will be at SOUL Gastrolounge. The breastacular krawl is 6 - 11 p.m. and afterwards you can stay in the Midwood hood to see Robot Johnson at CAST Theater. There's also a bunch of music going on.
