The Weekender:

Have you heard about the new food delivery service that just launched in Charlotte called CrunchButton? They will bring you food from popular restaurants that do not typically deliver. This includes Chipotle, which is freaking awesome considering uptown Charlotte is lacking in the Chipotle department.  Now I don’t have to venture out for lunch and I can stay in the comfort of my own desk (I hate desks) to bring you this awesome article about the upcoming weekend.

Eat & Drink

(1) Pinky’s West Side Grill – Every Friday Pinky’s host’s craft beer roulette. $3 gets you a mystery beer off the craft brew menu. It’s a great way to branch out and try to new beers. Make sure to tune in on May 1st at 10 pm to see a recently filmed Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives episode featuring Pinky’s West Side Grill.
