Went into the Food Lion on S Tryon, and think that I saw someone with dreadlocks...should I have called the police?

All kidding aside, just here temporarily until we close on our house.

All kidding aside, that Food Lion can actually draw a rough crowd. May I suggest a better area to shop, RIVERGATE, all the way!! Supertarget is there. If you aren't a big fan, Harris Teeter is across the intersection, Bi-Lo across from there so between the three you can find everything you need!! Where is your house located that you will be closing on?

Um, yeah...all along East Blvd. One of the reasons to move to the area is to be within walking distance to interesting independent eateries.

There has been a lot of discussion on this board about the Steele Creek area. I live there and thought the OP was hilarious. It's more a comment on how some areas/people are perceived.
