R5 best of the best


Since 1997, Charlotte magazine has dedicated its May issue to the BEST OF THE BEST. We call it The BOBS, and we recognize the city's finest in food and drink, nightlife, entertainment, shopping, mind and body, and more- hundreds of winners in all. And then we throw a huge party! The event offers all of Charlotte a chance to sample the best food and drink as well as mingle with all of the BOB winners. It has become one of the most anticipated parties in the city. Check back here for more information on the 2014 BOB Awards! Voting will begin in January.

Essential Information

400 E. Morehead St.
Charlotte, NC 28202


The Y—with 19 branches in the Charlotte area, including the Sara’s YMCA branch that opened in Ballantyne in February—uses fitness to bring us together. On a Wednesday night at the Johnston Y in NoDa, adults of all ages and skin tones swim laps next to kids learning the breaststroke, with hip hop blaring on the radio and moms and dads checking their cell phones on the bleachers. Upstairs, yogis breathe deeply and cyclists sweat in a spin class. Everyone is in this together, at least for an hour or two.
