My vacation in Charlotte hit a bit of a snag when my battery died on me. I didn’t want to spend the day in my hotel when there was so much to explore so, after getting the advice of the front desk clerk, I called Tow Truck Guy. They had my car charged and ready to go in plenty of time for me to see the sights.

Anyone else find it very ironic that the Democrats are holding their national convention at BANK OF AMERICA stadium? I know BoA practically runs Charlotte, but it's an odd choice of venue for them.

But then again, the financial services crowd still has control of both political parties, contrary to any propaganda the Dem's will give you about re-regulating Wall Street, which Dodd-Frank hardly did.

Of course, the purpose of both political parties in this country is to play the working and middle classes up against each other. In terms of mass politics, the Republicans (represented by petit bourgeois small business owners and management) are pitted against the Democrats (represented by the laborer class). The creditor/corporatist class, which overlaps both parties, hedges their bets between both and plays them against each other. They stay out of intramural politics for the most part.

I've never bought their furniture, but the store itself is very nice. The best thing about it is that they have rooms already set up, and EVERYTHING in the set up is for sale. Down to the little trinkets on the wall. So, if you look at the set up and say, "I want this exact room", you can have THE EXACT ROOM. When you leave, you can grab a catalog of the products, and it's free.

We went in April 2012 and it was pretty crowded. I took pictures of rooms with my phone, so I could remember what I liked.

The only thing we did buy was candles, but I wouldn't recommend it. You can only smell the scent if you are on top of the candle.

Very upscale restaurant, and delicious food! I have visited twice during trips to Charlotte. The dress code is "dress to impress", but I have saw people there in blue jeans. The restaurant is very dimly lit, so probably not a place to take people who need lots of lighting to read the menu. The "Illegal Bread" appetizer is the best! I could honestly eat that for my meal. Delicious!
