Last weekend I managed to squeeze in some time uptown at the "Taste of Charlotte" festival. I definitely enjoyed the Maryland Crab & Co vendor. This annual event seems to out do itself every year. I hope you didn't miss out.
I also checked out saxophonist Paul Taylor and Fourplay, with Bob James, Nathan East, Chuck Loeb, and Harvey Mason at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. Yes, the show was all that and then some. It definitely was a great way to spend a Sunday evening.
Speaking of Sunday, this weekend is Father's Day, so make sure it's a day Dad remembers. Happy Father's Day to all you wonderful Dads!
