Little Shiva

Artist, Writer, Publisher / "Editrix" of The Queen Zine

Best Gay and/or Lesbian Bar: Jeff's Bucket Shop. Owner Jeff Lowery lets Mistress LunaSea's Fun Freaky People take over every Monday night, bringing together gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgendered folks and even the new sexual minority: straight people!

Best Tattoo/Piercing Parlor: Sadu. The women of Sadu are strong, sexy and very knowledgeable about all kinds of piercings and fantastic body mods.

Best Place to Live Downtown: Within walking distance of Thomas Street is the nerve center of Charlotte's hip underground scene. The alternative crowd doesn't think of Trade and Tryon as the heart of Charlotte; for us, it's Thomas Street. It's to downtown Charlotte as the Village is to midtown Manhattan.

Best Spa: Georgetown Bodyworks. Why? Location, location, location.

Best Furniture Store: New Waves of Joy. Owner Mike McGuire has been there in his shiny orange storefront since the earliest days of NoDa selling groovy retro furniture at prices I can actually afford.
