If and when I make my next career move, I may decide to look for jobs in North Carolina. So where do the young professionals live and work in Carolina? Somewhere with a good night life, hot twenty-somethings, etc. Maybe somewhere with a slightly left of center leaning, but let's not go nuts. I'm souring on Maryland because it's getting too damned liberal... and this is me talking.

I don't think you'll go wrong living in or around either Raleigh/Durham or the Charlotte areas. I read an article last year that had raleigh as the No. 1 and Charlotte was No. 3 nationally for transplant growth and areas for young professionals. I personally would live just outside charlotte where the cost of living is much lower and drive into town for work.

I have family in both and I live about 30 min outside of Charlotte. Either is perfectly fine...the only plus with charlotte is you can see the cats and panthers play without having to drive three hrs.

A comedy club? As in one? God, I can't even imagine the concept that there's one of anything. You ask someone around here, "Hey, where's that rooftop tavern, with the revolving bar and furniture on the ceiling that has Pony Play enthusiasts meetings on Tuesday" and they'll probably say, "The one on the Waterfront, the one in Dupont or the one in Rockville?"

Hoo boy, this is going to be an adjustment.

all I found were places for amateur walk-ons.. The only comedy show that I could find was Doug Benson at Blumenthal.. and that was the only show I could find that month that we could have went to see.

what place did I miss that has comedians every weekend?

O yeah now I remember you did tell me about Doug Benson haha that would have been awesome to see.

Although, Blacklight magic was pretty cool

Raleigh and Charlotte.


I have a great time everytime I visit Raleigh. Charlotte is a great place to live.

Music scene - Raleigh
Young Professionals - tie
Bar scene - Raleigh
Sports - tie (CLT - pro teams ...Raleigh NHL and NCSU, UNC and Duke)
Transportation - CLT - Charlotte is a hub for USAir. close to beach and mountains.
food - With Johnson and Wales opening I'd give the edge to CLT but raleigh has some great places too
Bitches - they be crazy errwhere in NC
