So I am about to move down to Charlotte at the start of August, where I know absolutely no one. Have a bday coming up the second week. Since I can't see myself making a new group of friends in the less than two weeks between, any ideas for a decent solo bday? I figure I'll check out the neighborhood brewery and hopefully get some discount or free drinks, but other than that I'm lost on ideas in a brand new city.

Based on what I've read I would get a room at the hotel near Coyote Joes for the night and have a lot of drinks and meet some new friends.

I second the Whitewater Center. It's the answer to so many problems.

Kids feeling restless? Whitewater Center.

Having an existential crisis? Visit the Whitewater Center.

Spouse cheating on you? Visit the whitewater Center.

Feeling like having a brain-eating amoeba of your own? Visit the Whitewater Center.

Charlotte was nothing until it got the Whitewater Center.

You could also rent a jet ski and explore Lake Norman
