Charlotte Area Cars and Coffee- SAT May 5th New Home! 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 May 5th, 2012

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


We're back! Cars and Coffee has found a new home! Thank you for your patience and desire to keep this now Charlotte staple alive in this car crazy community. I believe all things happen for a reason and our new location will fit us better as it is accessible to more of Charlotte, as well as it is a space more conducive for us to grow and prosper. I'm excited about the new location because we are working with locally owned and operated businesses. The main lot is huge as it has ~700 spaces. That being said the spaces closest to the Diner should be reserved for regular diner patrons. If local car clubs or groups want to park together there is amble space to do so, there are four separate entrances to the lot, the closest to Mattie's may not be 'low car friendly' so try the other three. If needed their are additional lots that we can use if we happen to fill this one (highly doubt it but there are options).

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- Would love to see some D90s and 110's!

Michael

If it was S. Charlotte, I might go! have fun. I don't think you need to worry about Defenders doing burnouts in the parking lot. Driving on landscaping is a different story all together.

To fully disclose, I have military training this weekend, and will be out of town. All the D's are in S. Charlotte though if they want us there.

I'm going to have to check this out... and I have the most beat up D90 in Charlotte. It should compliment the exotics well.

Bring it, it will be awesome. Huge turnout expected. Rovers Welcome. I'll be in the other car this go around but I'm usually the lone D90 and I get a lot of attention. Can't tell you how fun it is to talk up the Rover.

South Charlotte is not far from uptown, "the sheep"'do it everyday by the thousands. On Saturday it will be a nice exercise run for the Rover.
