If you are a book lover and sips on wine, there a cool event called Verse & Vina November 10, 22 at the Charlotte Convention Center. Mark calendars for Thursday, November 10th and meet us at the Charlotte Convention Center. This signature annual event raises funds for Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Foundation. It’s a celebration of reading, writing and joy of libraries. Besides this event there is a book club challenge. Learn more why libraries matter, here.

When pulling up the event on November 10th, parking is easy. Self-parking is available at prevailing rates in parking lots and towers surrounding the Charlotte Convention Center. The NASCAR Hall of Fame parking deck is open and conveniently located at 500 Brevard Street, adjacent to the Charlotte Convention Center. The NASCAR Hall of Fame parking deck is also connected to the Charlotte Convention Center via a convenient over-street walkway. NASCAR will collect a flat event parking fee upon entrance to the garage. This self-pay at the beginning will dramatically speed up the exit time after the event. Please ask for the Verse & Vino rate. There is a Carolina Panthers game that evening; game attendees have a different parking rate.
