Harris Teeter reopened on Central Avenue today. It's pretty. I'm sure the grocery selection is amazing. I went for ONE thing.
Starbucks. Starbucks with roof top seating. It was everything that I thought it would be. And one thing I didn't count on -- it was hot up there. And sitting directly in the glow of the sun didn't help. I realized today, even though I was Supergirl for Halloween, I'm a mere mortal who should've had an iced coffee rather than that grande HOT dark roast.

The outdoor tables are wide and great for your laptop, iPad or even your lunch. I guess some people will come up there to eat, drink and look at the skyline. Charlotte has a nice sky line and when it isn't humid and hazy, it is pretty to gaze upon. (That was purple prose. Sorry.)
The Cons: Children and you really can't complain about them. When I go to a standalone Starbucks, I'm always
There are not electrical outlets on the roof. This wouldn't be a problem if I'd charged my computer last night. But hey, things happen.
Overall: This has got to be the best writing spot in the city of Charlotte and there is a library across the street! Awesome. Sauce.
On another note: I think everyone who lives in the Plaza Midwood neighborhood to the day off to go to Harris Teeter today. I even saw a former politician on the rooftop today.
I have this hidden fantasy to slow dance with the "soul mate" on a roof top while Miles Davis's All Blues plays in the background.
If I don't, you can bet one of my characters will!
