Scoop Charlotte and Yelp Charlotte have partnered for a great concept — and I'm a little jealous that we didn't come up with it ourselves. Introducing the Fabulous Frocking Boutique Tour. Ladies, jump on a bus (courtesy of Ragin' Uptown) and be escorted around town to some of the area's best local shops, enjoy some tasty bites and drinks and, most importantly, shop with a significant discount. It's a great way to discover all of the great little boutiques Charlotte has to offer. Do you hear a "Ladies Night" being organized? I do.
The first tour takes place Oct. 14 and will cover East Boulevard; the second is Oct. 21 in SouthPark. The tour is free, but you need to RSVP. Scoop and Yelp also will be taking a $10 donation as you board the bus to benefit the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network of Charlotte.
