We plan to do the double Charlotte/Tampa.

Headquarter in Tampa, go to Charlotte on showday and the next day back to Tampa. But we`re very afraid of the cancellations of fligths from/to CLT. Last year on our "missed" tour(Miami,Jax, Houston and New Orleans, on the original dates), we stranded two times in Charlotte sad smiley btw. now we know a hotel close to the stadium , because we had to stay in Charlotte ...

Some thoughts or alternative travel advices ?

I will be doing Pittsburgh/St Louis/Charlotte this year, I always try to avoid having my travel days on show days, that way any changes to plans can hopefully be worked out with less chance of missing a show.

Too early to talk about where to meet up before the show? I'm from Raleigh, NC but I have friends in Charlotte who recommended these places near the stadium:
The Dog House
Unknown Brewery
Whiskey Warehouse
French Quarter

Thoughts?

Looks like in june/july I'll be in Charlotte for the 1st time,
but somehow I've been talking with friends about a specific bar for years already.

The Thirsty Beaver Saloon!

Charlotte is a small downtown ("uptown" I think they call it) area, just 8 x 8 blocks. Everything is walking distance 10 minutes. It should be possible to find a nice place to meet, with large space, beers on the tap, and decent food. My only requirement is not loud music, I just hate it when I can't talk and do not hear because they play loud, also if the aircon is at freezing point it is a nightmare.

I checked the places mentioned above. The only one inside what I call the 8x8 block downtown (uptown) Charlotte area is this place:

French Quarter Restaurant, South Church Street, Charlotte, NC, USA

It looks good for me, but personally I would like to see the place in person before I would like to make it my favorite joint. Arriving 1-2 days before the show, I would be happy to look into places and do a recommendation here.

BV,

Agree. Been to downtown Charlotte a lot. We live only two hours away.

Recommend the Irish bar Rí Rá Irish Pub

Maybe you can set up a Meet and Great for use IORR'rs

Well I hear that bar is just a couple of blocks away from the venue, so it will be jam packed on show day. I am sure we will find a better place once we get closer to show day.

I've been to Ri Ra Irish Pub before, it's a good place with an upstairs, downstairs, and a decent sized deck overlooking a small part of the downtown area.
BV -- if you get a chance to check out these bars I'm very happy for you to make the final decision.

So far we have:

Whiskey Warehouse -- 1 hour walk to the stadium (10-15 min drive, uber, cab, etc...)

Thirsty Beaver -- 50 min walk (5-15 min drive)

Ri Ra Irish Pub -- 15 min walk to stadium

Unknown Brewery -- 9 min walk

French Quarter -- 8 min

The Doghouse -- 3 min

BV -

I live in Charlotte and am about 3 miles from the stadium. I am happy to scout anything out for you and help out in anyway.

South End is also fairly nearby the stadium. It is full of bars and breweries and is on the light rail system that goes into downtown (where the stadium is).

Charlotte is a big tailgating city - that might also be an option.

I’m going to the St. Louis show but will head back to Charlotte on June 28th so have plenty of time to help out! Just let me know.

Donna

Charlotte on a Sunday is Perfect for Football as Uptown(Downtown) offices are all closed. All available lots and Garages are used for Football parking as there is no parking lot at the Stadium . This being a Wednesday show the workforce population should be considered and light rail is now an option. Agree- As the show gets closer is when the decision should be made. Thanks
