Living in South End, it seems like I’m surrounded by nothing but construction and I always think to myself, “jeez here comes another apartment building!” But it turns out apartments aren’t the only things being built up. Add restaurants, bars, and breweries to the list! Charlotte Agenda has done their research and come up with a massive list of grand openings around the Charlotte area, and this is only just a few.
