Charlotte Area Cars and Coffee- SAT Dec 1st! NC Music Factory Uptown

Charlotte Area Cars and Coffee - Uptown Charlotte


Mattie's Diner / NC Music Factory Uptown Village-Main Lot
1000 NC Music Factory Blvd, Charlotte NC 28206

Saturday Dec 1st, 2012

7:30am until!
1st Saturday of every month!(weather permitting- rain date the 2nd Sat)


As the last C&C for the year December seems promising for a great turn out! Weather looks great with a brisk morning in the 40's quickly to warm up. Come out and enjoy some great rides and even better conversation Saturday morning, the shopping can wait until the afternoon and the SEC Championship does not start until 4pm so there are no excuses! Come out and have some fun! See you there!

Mattie's Diner was trilled to have us . They would ask that the parking spaces adjacent to the Diner in front and beside be reserved for some of Mattie's regular customers. Many drove up thinking that it was a private event and took off. Also please bare with the bathroom situation, the diner is small but will try to accommodate us the best that they can. If we need to there will be alternatives across the street at the Music Factory.

Many asked me if it was possible to reserve spaces for like makes and models and I would leave that up to the 'early bird get the worms'. You can organize as you see fit with particular makes and models, but as far as roping off before hand that is a bit hard due to the unknown size of a group or location desired. I would suggest that if you have a group that wants to park together that you designate a meet up spot close to the Music factory and ride in together, with 700+ spaces you should not have an issue. Last month it sort of fell together as such without much planning.


Mattie's Diner is a fantastic old school eatery that is located at the front of the property. Matt has made some slight changes to accommodate the size of our crowd so bare with them as they learn our needs. There will be coffee as expected, carry out baked items and sit down full breakfasts if you desire, the space is cozy so be prepared. The owner of NC Music Factory has graciously offered the use of this property and in order to respect the jester we need to do our part. Below are a few bylaws we have to follow in order to continue to use the facility. If we ware out our welcome here we are pretty much without options! I can not begin to tell you how much of a challenge it has been to relocate and find a new car friendly location!

Here are the very simple rules:

Absolutely no burnouts or horse play in the lot or the roads out front. It is irresponsible and safety is a huge concern for us. We trust your car is fast and you have unbelievable skills, there is no need to show us!

No vendors will be allowed to set up tables, booths or tents. As before you can hand out fliers if you wish but no signage or structures allowed.

The Uptown division of the Mecklenburg police department are well aware of our event and will patrol the area. Speeding and unlawful behavior will not be tolerated.

We need to leave the facilities better than we find them on each visit. NC Music Factory is letting us use this facility free of charge so we need to respect it There are trash cans throughout the property please do please do not litter.

Parking nearest to the Diner is reserved for regular restaurant patrons. We have the other 662 spaces!

That's it for now, very simple. Sometimes you don't know how good you have something until it is gone. I miss getting my monthly fix of beautiful machines and wonderful car crazy individuals. The weather looks great so far for Saturday morning, tell your friends, family, co- workers and neighbors to come out and enjoy. Looking forward to enjoying our wonderful new home for Charlotte cars and Coffee.

See you Saturday

Michael

Saw a 94 or 95 Red D90 at C&C on Saturday. Great to see another LRD90 owner out and about in Charlotte. I waited for a bit by the truck to see if whomever owned the truck would come back but I guess they were out and about looking at all the other cool rides.

Hope to catch up next time. Your truck looked great lifted and as if you had been out on the trails having a lot of fun. Great turn out Saturday, wonderful weather and a few hundred cars and trucks to peep at.

Will catch up next time! Glad to see you out, I hope this will bring out some more!

I was out there with mine. It's a 94 faded red, beat all to hell, lifted on beadlocks. If that's the one you saw that was me.

Yep, that's the one! Looked good! Sorry that I did not meet up with you this time. Did you enjoy the get together? It is a really cool event and there are some really cool gearheads that love anything that rolls. It keeps getting bigger every month. I wish we could scare up some more Rovers. I see a few here and there in the city but wish we could get them all up and out for C&C. I just saw a white SW yesterday off of Randolph that looked great.

Talk to you soon,

Michael
