Last night we enjoyed music at The Jazz Room. Matt Lemmler played piano and sang his compositions in honor of Steve Wonder. Matt led an 11 piece band and there were three guest vocalists.
When the crowd roared for an encore, they graciously played another. Also, Matt explained that in New Orleans the crowd would ask for a lagniappe.

Welcome to Charlotte Daily Photo
Last weekend our grandson visited and we had an adventure at the Discovery Place. We enjoyed the dinosaur exhibit, our grandson played with the dinosaurs in augmented reality, dug for bones, launched a meteorite, and was inspired by an iMax movie call dream big.
Oh, and they had a tyrannosaurus, in a box, which was making lots of noise ;)
