Page 16 of 91 15 Harvey B. Gantt Center Kindred Amélie's French Bakery Carolina Panthers Molly Grantham Age: 39 Title: Anchor/Reporter, WBTV In Charlotte: 13 years "We hit Panthers games and kids' Saturday morning soccer fields. We also drink good beers in NoDa and good wines at Savor Cafe [and Catering]. We eat lots and eat well — a variety of local mom and pop places — no chains, please. I walk the greenways, try to laugh, don't put on makeup and dream of the beach, only 3.5 hours away." Alejandro Torio Age: He lost track Title: Co-owner and Marketing Director, 5Church Group In Charlotte: 6½ years "I'll go for coffee at Smelly Cat Coffeehouse in NoDa and then breakfast at Amélie's French Bakery. Later, I'd grab dinner at 5Church and see a show at the Belk Theater with a nightcap at Growlers Pourhouse. Other favorite places include the U.S. National Whitewater Center, The Evening Muse and Panthers games." Sarah Crosland Age: 34 Title: Director of Observer Content Studio / Executive Editor of Magazines, The Charlotte Observer and Author of "100 Things to Do in Charlotte Before You Die" In Charlotte: 4 years "My dream day would start with a Not Just Coffee latte in hand and my dog in tow on a Saturday morning at Atherton Market. After, I'd walk over to the patio of Luna's Living Kitchen. For lunch, I'd grab a burger at Brooks Sandwich House in NoDa. Then, because I'm never able to resist the U.S. National Whitewater Center on a sunny day off, it would be a must-visit for some kayaking on the Catawba River. I'd want to end the day with a trip to Davidson for a stroll down Main Street before dinner at Kindred." James Ford Age: 36 Title: NC Teacher of the Year 2016 In Charlotte: 6 years "I'd get up early and hit a trail in University City that goes through campus and into town. Then I'd grab breakfast at Zada Jane's Corner Cafe. After that, I'd hit an exhibit at Levine Museum of the New South or see what's going on at the Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture, and hit up 7th Street Public Market for lunch. In the afternoon, I'd head over to Beatties Ford Road for body oils and daishikis at the street vendors there. For dinner, I'd take the family over to El Pulgarcito de America for Salvadorian food."
