This live music series happens every Wednesday evening, May through September, in Romare Bearden Park. Swingin’ Medallions, a beach/frat-rock music group, and Peace & Love, a band that brings you all the best funk classics, are set to round out this season’s performances. Bring a picnic and blanket along, and sprawl out for a free night of leisure before the colder weather comes.
Hunt down some friends at Laser Quest
Because what’s more amusing on a boring Friday night than trying to nail down your competition in a pitch-black hide-and-seek scenario? Charlotte’s Laser Quest is open until 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays, so you can grab a group of your rambunctious friends and get in on the battle. Go back to your middle school roots with the original laser tag, or check out the new KeyQuest Escape Room. You can always hit up a bar after to brag all about your laser domination over drinks -- loser buys.
