As an avid lover of Mexican food, hitting Vida Cantina in the Epicenter was a no brainer. Allured by the promise of homemade guacamole, fish tacos, and a giant margarita, Vida Cantina was a safe haven in the bustle of Uptown.
If you're trying to beat the Monday blues like I was, I suggest heading to Vida Cantina and checking out their lunch special. Offering a variety of "pick 2" options, you can mix and match for days without getting sick of options. After a margarita and snacking on chips, and gabbing with a few good friends, my Monday blues were cured.
If you're looking for a place to brunch, Vida also offers a special selection on Saturdays and Sundays. Unique menu items such as Smoked Salmon Tacos and Mexican Hot Chocolate make this restaurant both group and family friendly.
Carolina Nightlife will be hosting our Annual Sombrero Bar Crawl starting at Vida on Saturday, May 3rd. Purchase your tickets here:
Tomorrow is such a big day for the city of Charlotte as we get to welcome our beloved Knight's to play right here in Uptown. There is a great view from every seat in the stadium and season tickets are going fast! For those of you who are coming Uptown tomorrow for the game there are some great ways to have fun before it's "one, two, three strikes your out at the old ball game!"
Family - Starting at noon there will be a large celebration at the Romare Bearden Park with the introduction of our Charlotte Knights Team, followed by live music, activities and entertainment all afternoon. Food and Beverage will be available for purchase from some favorite local food trucks.
Happy Hour - Getting off of work and need a quick drink before the game at 7? Vida Mexican Kitchen is offering $3 Tecate, $4 Tequila Shooters, and $5 Margaritas. Not a bad way to start the game! Or head on over to Mortimer's for $3 Bud light bottles and $6 Vodka Redbulls. Can't go wrong with that.
After the game - The party is still going on and it's Friday night! Head on over to Prohibition for some $3 Bud Lights or $5 Absolut flavors, or check out The Tin Roof for some fantastic live music with an outdoor feel.
Monday's can be hard, especially when its pouring down with rain and miserable outside. The Sunday night dread that you must wake up early and become a productive member of society once again hits you hard and all you do is plan your next weekend activity. Well it's time to stop dreading Monday and time to continue the weekend fun with your friends at Strike City in the EpiCenter with All You Can Bowl Monday!
Strike City offers every Monday from 11am to 2am on a first come first serve basis, all you can bowl for $15 per person which also includes your rental shoes. The earlier you get there (or the later you get there) the more option for lanes will be available. This is a great night out with some friends, family or coworkers to get those Monday blues out of your system. Do keep in mind this event is 18+.
Even if you're not into bowling but your friends are, Strike City has a plethora of televisions playing the Monday night games and if that still doesn't strike your fancy they have on special $4 Blue Moon pints and car bombs, $5 fireball shots and $5 Smirnoff flavors (for those who are over 21).
