Elvis tributes and help for hopeless cooks

AUG. 14 -- Check out the new Plan B Restaurant (in the former location of City Tavern on 1514 East Blvd.); the eatery's got TVs for all those football fanatics, and this Thursday it will feature live music from Leisure McCorkle. Other weekly night events include trivia night on Tuesdays and half-price martinis on Wednesdays and more live music on Thursdays and Fridays. Plan B Restaurant, 1514 East Blvd. 704-348-1717.

The tribute artists include Chuck Ayers, Wayne Euliss, Joe Clough and Jeff Collins. Proceeds of the event will go to Presbyterian Hemby Children's Hospital. $12, for the show only. 6 p.m. Jonathan's of Matthews, 10630 Independence Pointe Parkway. (Matthews) For reservations call 704-847-8911.

AUG. 16 -- Food Network is looking for hopeless cooks for a new culinary competition show. If you are incompetent or dangerous in the kitchen come out to their open call. This could lead to an opportunity to work with skilled chefs and best of all, it could have you cooking like a professional. You can nominate yourself or someone you know. Apply by e-mail at: Tell why you (or the one you nominate) are a bad cook and include details (name, age, hometown, occupation, a contact phone number and a recent photo of the disastrous cook). Open call. 12 p.m.-4 p.m. The Blake Hotel, 555 S. McDowell St. 704-372-4100.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
