This week is a BIG week for Charlotte guys! The Panthers are officially back in business with this Friday's Preseason game against the Buffalo Bills. Rain or Shine, fans from all over will be coming out to get their tailgate on. But, where do you go? What do you do? After a fast start to the week including Miley Cyrus taking over Uptown, DRAUGHT Charlotte opening in the old Hartigan's (finally a local stadium bar), and Bar One's first Charlotte location ready to keep the drinks flowing, this weekend is proving to be one for the books.
For some of you non-football fans (I know, I'm trying not to judge), this week is picking up to have a few great events to shape out the week. If you still are getting over your post Miley Cyrus concert coma, here's a variety of different events to keep you busy!
