Things have been happening. Here are some snapshots.
The New Y2
We’re getting very close to opening the new Y2 Yoga. The new studio will feature three practice spaces (accommodating 130+ mats), cafe, sushi bar, wine bar, childcare, spa, and… secret bat cave lair. (For real.) It’s an exciting time for everyone, and I’m up to my eyeballs in preparation–brand messaging, staff training, merchandising, etc. It’s fun stuff and I’m totally in my zone.
The feasting season is upon us and I kicked it off with one hell of a Sunday supper club at my friend Caroline’s house. (You one million percent must read her blog because she is one of the funniest people I know.) I ate all the things and then took home stacks of Tupperware to go.
Hello Nan and Byron’s
Map Management, owners of Charlotte’s hottest Uptown hangout 5Church, have done it again with the opening of Nan and Byron’s in South End. Unlike 5Church and its sleek urban appeal, Nan and Byron’s prides itself on down-home, family-friendly fare. I went to the media sneak peak one night and then promptly returned the very next night for the grand opening. Eat the macaroni and cheese and the peppadew poppers (HELLO). Also every single cocktail.
For the last five weeks I’ve been participating in Shape Charlotte, a unique business idea competition from the World Economic Forum created by and for the next generation of leaders under 35. I pitched my baby PlateShare and made a surprising clean sweep of the awards with a $10,000 grand prize and $2,500 audience choice. I have no words.
That’s the latest in my world. I hope everyone is having a lovely week. If you need some additional reading/viewing material, might I suggest:
