Abstract:
For fifty years on Charlotte's Elizabeth Street, Jimmie's Restaurant, operated by Jimmie Pourlous, was an institution. In 2002, when Central Piedmont Community College purchased the building where the restaurant was located, Pourlous and his family faced the decision of moving or retiring. His sons Chris and George had worked in the restaurant all their lives. They planned a new restaurant, and in 2004, the new Jimmie's Restaurant opened in Mint Hill just thirteen miles away from the original. Timblin recounts the history of the restaurant and compares the old one with the new one.

Abstract:
When the Civil War ended, Charlotte's population was around 5,000. Today, over 650,000 people live there. In the space of 150 years, the town moved from being a farming area to an industrial one and then to a modern financial center. Adams describes three places that give visitors a feel for Charlotte's past: the Levine Museum of the New South, Mert's Heart and Soul Restaurant, and the Mint Museum of Craft + Design.

Abstract:
Price's Chicken Coop, located in Charlotte, is owned by Drew and Stephen Price and has sold great meals at a fair price since the 1960s. It is not a fancy place--red-brick exterior, white-painted concrete block walls on the interior, and no place to sit. Armed with a secret marinade, a helping of Southern charm, and twenty or so knowledgeable employees, the restaurant sends happy customers away Tuesday through Saturday.
