Feast on neighborhood favorites at Fenwick’s

A Charlotte mainstay since 1984, Fenwick’s on Providence Road provides the perfect cozy neighborhood feel for catching up with friends and family. Indulge in a hearty brunch to power your weekend activities or unwind with a post-work dinner. You’ll find a menu packed with juicy burgers and steaks, fresh seafood and loaded salads. The soup selections are accompanied by a divine homemade muffin and make for a popular starting point, as does the in-demand hummus appetizer and the hearty basket of crispy onion rings. Regardless of the time of day, you’ll want to plan on devouring a slice of Fenwick’s delectable pecan pie during your visit; it’s practically a requirement.

Dazzle your senses at Theatre Charlotte

Staring at computers, phones and tablets all day makes screen overload a real threat. Let Theatre Charlotte serve as an appealing antidote. Since 1927, the volunteer-based theater company has provided the Queen City with an infusion of culture in the form of plays and musicals that delight a diverse audience. The theatre regularly earns attention for its contributions to Charlotte’s performing arts scene. In fact, it’s been dubbed the North Carolina Theatre Conference’s Community Theatre of the Year three times. Mark your calendar for upcoming performances of “Aida,” “Spring Awakening,” “A Christmas Carol,” and “The Lion King.” For youth, TCjr (Theatre Charlotte for juniors) offers season ticket packages as well as single-ticket options.
