When a problem comes along, you must MURAL IT!
Hey there, Charlotte! If we’ve learned anything it’s … Murals make everything better! Blank walls in Bank Town have been begging to be painted for years! And now, hundreds are waiting to be found around every corner of the Queen City. So, when we encounter a challenge in Crown Town, there’s only one thing to do … MURAL IT! Watch the video.
And, when you’re done watching our foolishness, make plans to see real muralists in action all over Charlotte Oct. 16-19 during Talking Walls.

When Taiwo Jaiyeoba says he’s shaping the future of Charlotte, you can take him at his word. (And, it’s not just because he has 7 daughters.) As the City of Charlotte’s Director of Planning, Design & Development, Taiwo and his team are leading the charge on the Charlotte 2040 plans reshaping zoning codes and land use. PRO TIP: You can learn more about it at Growth Options Workshops tonight at tomorrow night. Info here.
In his new, additional role as Assistant City Manager, Taiwo will be taking on even more. Taiwo is addressing CreativeMornings/Charlotte this Friday, Oct. 11, speaking on the global topic of “Flow.” But, before he hits the stage at Ovens Auditorium, we took a few minutes to ask one of the smartest cats in the Queen City five ridiculous questions.
If you could eliminate one thing from your daily schedule or routine, what would it be and why?
Wearing socks and ties to work. I don’t care about them.
Where is your favorite place in Charlotte to stop, think and collect yourself?
Levine Museum (of the New South). I sometimes go there at lunchtime to reconnect myself through history.
Look down at your desk. Now look to the right. What’s the first object you see?
The current book I’m reading: “Vancouverism” by Larry Beasley
What karaoke song are you prepared to slay at a moment’s notice?
“I Can Only Imagine” by MercyMe.
What’s an animated .gif that makes you laugh every time you see it?
Last week, the Carolina Renaissance Festival opened the drawbridge for a 26th season, giving Charlotteans 7 more glorious weekends to chug pumpkin ale, gorge on turkey legs, take photos with mermaids, fairies and Jack Sparrow cosplayers and generally get really, really confused as to the differences between the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings and Doctor Who. But, as this festival has a particular significance for one of our top Biscuit makers who took his wife on their first date there, we asked a few charlatan Charlotteans what they think about another season in Fairhaven.

If there’s one thing we know over here, it’s how to mind our Biscuits … two of them per week, to be exact. Biscuit making is definitely a labor of love, but always worth it, especially now that we know our lives will be gravy from here on out. Find these words of wisdom for yourself at Carriage Fine Dry Cleaning located in the Historic Dilworth Community on Park Road. This #OGClt business has cranked out clean clothes and wise words since 1992. (You can pop by the Red Cross Donation Center next door to give blood and then hit #OGClt treasure, The Comet Grill, for a post-donation snack while you’re in the neighborhood. Just sayin’.)
And remember, always mind your own biscuits, but we’d appreciate it if you minded The Biscuit, too!
