I love the Elizabeth area of Charlotte.  I reminds me of Dilworth and some of the areas of Myers Park where I grew up.  I live in a similar area here in Greensboro.  It is nice to live in a well established walking community in town.

I like this town Debe.  Two lady's first names.  Elizabeth, Charlotte.  Must be prophetic.

Hey Debe,

Well of course you have another great blog post.  I wasn't aware of the revitalization going on.  Meg and I love Cajun Queen and Antony's.  We used to eat there all the time when we lived there.
