What can I say about the end of March? Don’t sit down. Once again there is something for everyone, and with the weather turning to Spring you have no excuse what so ever to miss out on anything. Treat your senses to great food and drink, music, art, and so much more.

Special Mention for Beer Lovers: From March 20th to March 28th you can enjoy Charlotte Craft Beer Week at various locations. There is even an event called “All Ale to the Queen!” How could you let that pass you by?

It’s not all Beethoven and Bach with our favorite Charlotte Treasure, The Charlotte Symphony Orchestra. This month they are once again treating us to their spectacular night of Led Zeppelin.

As their event page states: “The Music of Led Zeppelin captures the sheer blast and power, riff for riff, of this classic band. Conducted by creator Brent Havens, the show features a heavy-hitting five piece band fronted by Randy Jackson with the Symphony adding musical depth and color to Zeppelin classics “Stairway to Heaven,” “Heartbreaker,” “Black Dog,” Kashmir,” “Immigrant Song,” and more.”
