Things you should know

Lots of stuff going on this week and I wanted to make sure you all were aware of it.

First things first, sorry for getting off my regular posting track. I'll be updating more frequently as the fall party season gets into full swing this month and as Charlotte nightlife continues to expand with more and more new nightspots opening, well, nightly (see below).

Five things you need to know:

  • After four months of renovations, The Sunset Club is having its grand reopening party Saturday. Unless, that is, the club considers you friends/family and in that case you'll get into the ultra VIP party Thursday, or if you're a member you'll be getting a members-only peek at it Friday. I'm getting an early look this afternoon and you can read all about it in my Paid to Party column on Friday.
  • Also opening this week: the first nightlife venue in the N.C. Music Factory. The Garden and Gun Club's debut bash is happening Friday night.
  • Apostrophe, a new club in Southend across from Amos', held its soft opening on Friday. It's also the new spot for the weekly Pop Life (next party: Sept. 17). Did anyone go last weekend? What did you think?
  • Elevate and Kiss 95.1 are teaming up for a new outdoor after-work party -- and it's not uptown. Wine Day Wednesdays starts tonight at 5:30 at the Village at SouthPark (aka the M5 parking lot).
  • The Yiasou Greek Festival starts Thursday. Just a tip before you head out this weekend: A cold gyro tastes great at 2 a.m. after three nights of checking out club openings so order two and take the extra home with you. I've already cleared room in my fridge.
OK, what did I miss?

Sunset Club grand reopening??? C' was a dud when it was open and it will be a dud after the so-called grand reopening. The owners have no clue how to run a club. Oh yeah, they have their new place...Kiss Lounge...great location. This should be closed within a couple of months. Well maybe not, I'm sure they will keep it open and empty like Sunset Club has been for several years. So many times I will the bartenders from Sunset upstairs around 10:30 because no one was in Sunset.
