A blog where Charlotte business, politics, and media intersect

You're Welcome, Esquire
It's an old trick. When a national media outlet needs to report on a city with which it is unfamiliar (i.e. any city besides New York), a reporter or producer scopes out the city mag's Best Of list. The September issue of Esquire, which hit my mailbox today, contains a mini-travel story on Charlotte. Mini, as in this is the entire text:
Charlotte Dr. Charles L. Sifford Golf Course at Revolution Park. Good deal. • The Common Market, for a beer. • Jimmy's BBQ, up the road in Lexington. It's worth the hour drive.
In case you're scoring at home, in our May issue, we gave Common Market a BOB Award for Curated Beer Selection. Sifford at Revo Park won for Golf Course Redo (and we touted its affordability). As for Jimmy's BBQ, I have no clue where the Esquire intern got that one.
