Since 1999, 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.
Charlotte’s never had anything quite like XOXO. This is the group that takes van-loads of culture vultures into the South Carolina woods for the eerie (and hilarious) Bohemian Grove, a play named for a campground rumored to host meetings of the world’s most powerful men. XOXO is one of the arts groups in On the Hook, the collective created as a cultural reaction to white supremacy in the United States. Today, the group workshops the hyper-localized #CAKE, a choose-your-own-adventure theater experience that explores class and race in Charlotte.
