CLT Avengers

When Charlotte SHOUT! took over the Queen City in May 2019, The Biscuit put out the call and assembled a team of the city’s mightiest Instagrammers to cover all the excitement and spark joy. (We hear you, Marie Kondo.) We called them our “Creative Correspondents,” but after just one day, they dubbed themselves the #CLTAvengers … and it stuck. We’ve since given them a permanent home here – devouring their picks for events, music, restaurants, follow-worthy social media pages, and way more. CLTAvengers, assemble!
