Tuesday

The (For The Time Being?) Charlotte Bobcats

This past Saturday we had my parents and my sister Laura and her husband up to Charlotte for a fun little adventure.  We spent some afternoon time checking out local breweries, but Ian and I had another fun little surprise up our sleeves ... tickets for everyone to that night's Bobcats basketball game!

Our Bobcats had some interesting news this past week when the Hornets name was released from New Orleans (Charlotte originally had the name from 1988-2002) and it's now up for grabs.  Although it's not an inexpensive move, I'm hoping Charlotte takes back the name and mascot again.  Our Bobcats record isn't too hot these days, and I think this could be a great "clean slate" move as well as a nod to nostalgia! 

We had a great time that night, mayyyybe in part because Ian and I made sure to pick out tickets that were close to the Rock The Rooftop bar area!  Our family loves to party and have a great time, so this was a must.
      












We ended the night with dinner at Ri-Ra and then cabbed it home.  The smart gals hit the hay around 12:30 while the guys tore it up in a viscious game of ping pong at our house and didn't crash until 2:30. 

Boys will be boys, I guess.  :)

  1. Looks like so much fun! During law school my friend and I would go to Bruin's games and sit at the very top where they did the broadcasting. No one else would sit up there, so we had the bar to ourselves. Too great.

  5. I am not a big basketball fan but agree. If the Bobcats became the Hornets again I think the city would get excited about the change and get back into the game. Ps love the outfit!

  8. Cute pics as always! I hope the Hornets come back to CLT as they were a major player in my childhood. Loved going to their games back then. Doesn't Jordan still own the Bobcats though? I cannot imagine them leaving since he is still based in NC. Boo hiss.
