CL's Guide to CIAA 2012 


As the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) celebrates 100 years of tournament awesomeness - making it the U.S.'s oldest historically black college and university conference - Creative Loafing is ready to celebrate, too.

Our inboxes have been flooded with party information for weeks now, and we're ready to party right with the 200,000+ people coming into town for the basketball conference, parties and events. We've compiled our list of all - or at least, most - the parties happening in the Queen City this week.

But this week isn't just about the parties - it's about experiencing CIAA and Charlotte the very best way you can. Check out a story on the food you must try. Find out where the food trucks will be stationed.

Read about the arts events worthy of your butt in those theater seats and the hip-hop icons spanning 30 years who will be in town to party with you and possibly, maybe, sing/rap a lyric or two. And how could we possibly forget about the real reason all of this madness is happening this week. We've also got a story on who you should be watching during the games at Time Warner Cable Arena. Plus so much more.

Happy CIAA, folks!
