Hot Taco

We went out on Cinco De Mayo and quickly realized the crowds were too thick. So we came back today for brunch and we the only patrons ;)

Actually, although they serve brunch, the Hot Taco is more of a bar scene for those that enjoy a crowd.

This photo was taken at 200 East Bland in the South End. Following is a link to the Hot Taco website.

edifice construction

Edifice construction in the Southend near Uptown Charlotte.
I took this photo because the blue will add color to our photo blog and because of the sign which you can see says edifice … with a little research it is easy to surmise that this is an edifice construction site. Now I understand the Edifice Inc. is the name of the company constructing this building … but some additional research finds that the definition of edifice is: “a building, especially a large, imposing one”.

This photo was taken near the intersection of the Charlotte Rail Trail and West Bland Street. Following is a link to the Edifice Inc. website.

This hexpong table can be found at the Bland Station on the light rail. This, along with other colorful touches removes the bland from the Bland Station (smile). A plaque explains that it is called #HEXPONG and 2-6 can play. Balls and Paddles are provided.

Phat Burrito is one of my favorite places … when my wife is out of town (smile) … actually I may be able to get her to try the breakfast burrito. Also, note that they have a really cool t-shirt which says iPhat.

chicken art

It has been unseasonably hot and like many we have spent more time than usual in the comfort of air-conditioned places. However this weekend I took a long walk in the heat and it felt good. While on my walk I passed by this chicken art in Southend near Uptown Charlotte.

this photo was taken near the Bland Station on the Blue Line. It is also near the futo buta ramen restaurant.

lightrail

While on a walk, this last weekend, I took this photo at a lightrail station in the South End near Uptown Charlotte. Notice the pink building … it is one of Charlotte’s landmarks and is very interesting during the early morning sun. Those who own condo’s there have an outstanding view of Uptown Charlotte.

This photo was taken at the Bland Station. The pink building is called the Alington however their website is ThePinkBuilding.com (smile).
