This is great news! Hope their vegan selections are just as good and plentiful as they were under HHM.

Re: “JJ's Red Hots does a dog right

HORRIBLE Customer Service.
after having one of the bottles that were improperly secured ruin a $125 sweater. I brought it to the attention of the manager Darren that stated they would make it right. He just had to speak with his owner John and then they'd be in touch. I did speak with the owner John and he was very hesitant to believe my story and sounded skeptical but he'd look into it and get back to me. 7 days later no reply. I called several times with no return call and finally wrote some reviews. afterwards John sent me a reply email stating due to my reviews he is not interested in my loss and rather lose me as a customer. There are soo many good restaurants in the area. Go to one that cares about their customers. support local and boycott JJ Red hots

Re: “Twelve Years After His Release From Prison, Skyland Owner Jimmy Kakavitsas Won't Forget

Thank you Vanessa for a great and true article. Finally a paper that wrote the truth. One correction is that you accidentally misunderstood the 10% and 90% part, I kept 10% not 90%. Everything is perfect and accurate on your article. My father and I cant thank you enough for your time. Its good that someone finally wrote an article thats accurate of the true story.
Gus and Jimmy Kakavitsas.

A special family and a very special restaurant.

Re: “Family Business Forced To Shut Down After a Half Century on Kings Drive

It's so sad to see the little details of Charlotte disappear one by one as development and modernization impact the city.

The smells of the deli were always welcome when I jogged by. It'll definitely be different when something new with less character takes its place.

Re: “Why do the black shows on the Food Network suck ass?

The person who wrote this has something against Negros or so call African American TV host. He sounds racist. I enjoyed all three shows how talked about. If you hate watching blacks on tv move to Norway and don't watch TV. I can't believe this stuff I am reading. RACIST.

Re: “More College Graduates Are Getting Stuck in the Service Industry as Opportunities Become Scarce


I loved this piece and would love a chance to talk to you: I work with a lot of young people on lifestyle and debt, and am appalled at all the stories of great well-educated Charlotteans not getting into jobs they want. I can help! Please call or email me:
