99 Things to Do*




22 Eat at Bojangles and wish that Popeye's was next door. (Really, it's ridiculous how many Bojangles restaurants are out there. Anyway, maybe if you're lucky, you'll get one with free Wi-Fi.)

23 Eat fried chicken at Price's Chicken Coop on Camden Road (it's cheap). If you want to splurge, head to The Melting Pot on Kings Drive.

24 Eat fried chicken at a place other than Price's or Merts. There are plenty of off-the-beaten-track locales to get your chickin fixin': Simmons, The Chicken Box, Statesville Avenue Café, to name a few.

25 Eat on top of your car at Dairy Queen on Central Avenue.

26 Remember when West Charlotte ruled high school football by attending a game (Independence might have football on lock, but W.C. still has the best band in the city).

27 Buy an Uptown condo for $300,000 and sell it 15 minutes later for $450,000.

28 Attend the "Queens Tour" -- which is basically an all-day walk/drive admiring the million-dollar district on Queens Road.

29 Join Calvary Church on Pineville-Matthews Road. A few months after you've joined Calvary Church on Pineville-Matthews Road, look around and see if anyone in your pew is someone you've ever seen before.

30 Be thankful the city's daily newspaper defines the Dow Jones industrial average for readers who jus' ain't skooled enough to know it's the "most popular gauge of the U.S. stock market."

31 Pee in the water at Ray's Splash Plant.

32 Take a romantic nighttime stroll around the man-made lake conveniently located behind the University Place Hilton.

33 Secretly attend an event at the new downtown arena, even though you voted against the arena.

34 Meet up with the Sunday After-Church Club at Dairy Queen on Wilkinson Boulevard.

35 Ride a CATS bus and write us a letter to tell us about it. Seriously, we're interested to hear how it went. The only thing less used in our city is the court system. Bada bing.
