Honorable Mentions 


It’s not surprising that readers chose “The Queen City” to be the city’s slogan. after all, people tend to get creative with their answers, so the chances of having multiple people writing in the same slogan is slim to none — unless someone campaigns for their suggestion.

So, in the interest of fairness and good humor, we offer some of our favorite submissions under the Best Slogan for Charlotte category:

-Got condos?

-I had no idea Charlotte was cool!

-Where frat boys go to die

-A little bit of everything

-At least we’re not Atlanta

-City of trees

-Come for the beer, then get stuck in traffic

-Come for the beer, stay for the beer

-Hipsters in the ghetto

-Homogonized apartment town

-It’s surprisingly hilly

-More than banks and churches

-Thanks for nothing, Pat

-The land of 10,000 apartment complexes

-The place no one is from

-We have apartments at every corner

-We’re not all rednecks


For every favorite mascot or sandwich vote, we have plenty of snarky readers who prefer to vote for random things that will never win a Best of award. Some of them are misspellings, some are snarky — a bunch of them are just entertaining.
