Wasn't it like inside SP? Like you could get into it through the mall?

SPEAKING of that, remember when they had the cafeteria at South Park? Man, I loved that place! Yeah it was a little grungy and grimey but it was straight southern cafeteria food and you go through the line with your little tray surrounded by old people. good times.

Also, they don't have music stores in SP anymore. There used to be atleast 2 CD/DVD/Media Play-type stores in there.

Remember when 106.5 had those folks living in a car in Carolina Place Mall? Whoever stayed the longest, won the car...

I do. One of the scenes is in my parents neighborhood. They are all over Charlotte in that movie.

Juwanna Man was filmed here too.


Eddie was filmed in Charlotte also...They used the old Morrocroft Estate and the Coliseum

Also, I remember the BBQ stations at the old Coliseum like it was yesterday. I loved that stuff

Anyone remember the Epicurean Restaurant? Then they had the sign up to build a new one across from Brixx for the longest time.

The ribbon cutting ceremony for Speedway Blvd. before Concord Mills was built. That was when Harris Blvd. was pretty much it before Poplar Tent & Concord

Frankenstein's was the sh*t haha

And wasn't Charlie's basically where Brooks Bros. is right now of course before they built all the new additions?

Remember when the mascot for the Charlotte NBA team was an homage to both the history of the city as well as a natural disaster that struck the city and was not a narcissistic embodiment of an owner's ego?
