Roxy’s has it right

Roxy’s has plenty of indoor and outdoor seating options. (Nate Davis photo)


I recently stumbled across a new place – or rather, a new concept in an existing place. Carrie and I and another couple had reservations at 131 Main, off Statesville Road in Cornelius, but the restaurant was running a bit behind with our table so the hostess suggested that we check out their new place, Roxy’s Coffee & Wine, just 2 doors down from them at 9606 Bailey Road (where Dilworth Coffee used to be). We welcomed the suggestion, walked the 20 steps or so to Roxy’s, and quickly determined that the place has a super cool concept. Coffee AND Wine? Imagine Starbucks and the Corkscrew all rolled up into one, wonderfully inviting beverage shop.

LKN Summer Soirée is truly something to smile about

Break out your calendars and put a big star on June 21 – not only is it the first official day of summer, it’s also the second annual LKN Summer Soirée!

Hosted by LKNFun and CLTFun, tickets to the all-inclusive event include drinks, food and music, and support a very good cause: my favorite, Little Smiles. I first learned about Little Smiles last year, when some of its volunteers approached me to help promote one of their charity events. The group’s mission is to bring “little smiles” to children in hospitals, hospice and shelters. Those “smiles” take many forms – from toys and games to outings and events – and all are provided by volunteers. In providing those things, the organization helps children escape their everyday pain and allow them to just be kids again, even if it is for only a short period of time. Read the full story
