Dukie

this thing opened in 2010, did it not?

Was one of the first much touted events going to be some type of beer festival? And did they not have to pull the plug on it as the CC did not have an ABC permit?

Is that professional management?

Please correct me if I am wrong Duke. I am man enough to accept my errors. But I don't think I did on this one.

And did you notice, during the Democratic Convention, the Myrtle Beach Tourism and Convention Center sent a delegation to Charlotte. Not to promote votes for the incumbent's renomination. Rather, they were there to promote the Grand Strand to all of the business owners, well to do convention attendees, and trade groups which were in Charlotte as a part of the Convention.

Myrtle Beach saw opportunity and pursued it.

Can the same be said for Ms. Eaton?

For the record, what events is Ms. Eaton working on? You seem to be her advocate.

Ringling Brothers & Barnum Bailey Circus? You could tie this one in with the never to be built ball park. You know, they could use the infield and outfield for grazing the horses, camels, zebras, and elephants.

Lippizaner Stallions? Ditto the above comment re using the ball park for grazing.

Z Z Top concert? Hey the Durham Center for Performing Arts, which your sidekick Mike T was so ineffective in using as a validation for the CC, has Z Z Top booked for a concert later in the season. Remember, the DCPA, as Mike T likes to refer to it, only seats fewer than 5,000 so it should be a good fit.

Pretty soon, I'm going to want a fee from the city for developing all of these potential candidates for CC events.
