3. You can put your cooking skills to the test
Chef Alyssa is known around South End for her pop-up cooking classes at Atherton Mill & Market. Grab a friend or a date for an evening out to master some healthy cooking recipes (or at least give it a shot). Class topics include light summer desserts, outdoor cooking, BBQ sides, and more. Plus, it’s BYOB, so you can bring your dinner drink of choice.
4. You can spend all day between breweries
Charlotte, specifically South End, is the newest hub for craft beer. The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery arrived six years ago as the first in the area, and now the neighborhood is home to nearly 10 breweries -- most of which are within walking distance of each other. If that doesn’t scream all-day beer crawl, I don’t know what does.
