Last night I went out on a date ... with rumors apparently.
Him: “So I heard you were a racer chaser.”
Me: “Yeah, I chase racers down with a microphone in my hand vying for an interview!?”
Him: "So I Googled you and read something about your boyfriend cheating on you."
Soooo ... that date didn’t go very well.
As if word-of-mouth rumor-spreading isn’t bad enough, now we have Google and Facebook to spread our business on the world wide web.
There are actually a lot of rumors circulating Charlotte’s Nightlife High right now, concerning the nightlife social scene. And perhaps the little gossip queen I went out on a date with got to me a little, because I am going to just pass along what I've been hearing. This stuff is about as worthy a news source as the National Enquirer, as it’s literally just gossip. But though they may just be rumors, it’s far more interesting than listening to rumors about other people.
I'm sure you've heard that the EpiCentre and Ballantyne Village are dealing with foreclosure issues, but rumor has it that the EpiCentre is actually getting a new tenant ... BAR Charlotte. Could this be true?
One viable source with BMG denied it, while one source with “the Greeks” who run the corner of 6th and College (with Cosmos, Forum and Alley Cat) just played dumb — but if BAR Charlotte does move to the EpiCentre, the available space could be used to make one massive multidimensional club, encompassing The Forum's old space all the way down the block to Bar Charlotte.
A source with the venue formerly known as The Forum did give me a clue about what they’re planning, and he said in summation, "It’s like nothing Charlotte has ever seen, and you will be impressed." And that in a couple months the physical construction will clue us all in.
Also, the word on the street is that the space the old Cans inhabited is turning into an urban club.
But don’t believe anything I say or what other people say, for that matter. People are just talking now — I'll get back to you when I see actions, which speak a lot louder.
