This past weekend, we went to a Charlotte Independence soccer game with our friends Ava and Mariano. It was our first time going to a game and the stadium was really cute! I kind of felt like I was back home at the town park. It was filled with bleachers, kids running up and down the field with friends, and food trucks serving up summer snacks.
I’m not sure if it’s a Charlotte thing, a southern thing, or a summer 2016 thing, but a lot of bars and breweries in the Queen City have started selling popsicle cocktails. Their formula is a glass of prosecco with a King of Pops popsicle (a local popsicle joint that makes ecologically responsible, fresh, all-natural frozen treats) dunked in it. The idea is that the popsicle melts in the summer heat and you’re left with a fruity, refreshing, summer-time drink.
