Charlotte Travel Blog› entry 1 of 1 › view all entries
So tonight I went to another Travbuddy meetup in Charlotte, North Carolina. The MUP was organized by James (jmaxiv) in honor of Mario (Mario26) and Valerie (Lalie) visiting from Montreal. After going to the MUP in Singapore only a couple of weeks before, I decided I couldn't miss this one (even though it was 4 hours away- Oh the sacrifices we make for Travbuddy!!!). I first met Juan (John1112) a few mintues north of Downtown (Uptown) Charlotte and we went to TGI Fridays to meetup with a couple other people before heading to the actual meetup. Soon after we go there we were joined by Karina (Karieve) and Laura (lauraliz1986). Then we headed on down to Feast @ HOM where we met the rest of the group.
James, Donna, Mario, Valerie, Wade (Wade5000), Marie (La_guerita) Santiago (friend of James), Andi (AndiPerullo) and Marc (Andi's friend from Australia).
By the time we got there, just about everyone was there. Of course we ordered drinks and then started the normal chit-chat while getting to know everyone. Once we ate dinner, we were invited by someone at the restaurant to visit both the downstairs lounge and the upstairs club (on the house). So first we all went downstairs to the lounge which was called Live. It was pretty cool. It had good music, cool chairs, beds and couches to hang out on, and it wasnt too crowded.
Thanks to James and Donna for being so hospitable and organizing the meetup!
