Late night in the city 

One writer searches for life in Charlotte after 2 a.m.

The two customers are ready to pay for their chips, soda and chocolate. Kevin gives me a smile and a nod as he scans the merchandise.

"I told you: trash food," he says.

Around 3 a.m. and 4 a.m., Kevin says many elderly people come in to do some serious shopping. That makes sense. Traffic is lighter and so are the crowds in the store.

But what about the condoms?

"We sell a good bit of condoms before the clubs close. Occasionally, we get someone coming in late to get condoms."

"Someone who has last pick of what's left over in the club," the cop chimes in with a laugh.

with my quest finally complete, allow me to reflect on a few things to do in Charlotte after 2 a.m.:

• Get some street meat with extra mustard.

• Go home and suck some dick or hunt down the liquor house.

• Get some food at an all-night restaurant, but be prepared to wait for it.

• Get your shopping done at Walgreens or a Wal-Mart Super Center.

If all else fails, at 5 a.m. you can repent for all of your unholy deeds by turning on the radio and listening to gospel music.
