Welcome!! If you feel like doing some more driving tomorrow, don't forget that a handful of us are meeting at Dave and Buster's at Concord Mills Mall tomorrow at noon, so you can meet some new people on your first weekend here

Concord Mills mall is very easy to find... I believe it's exit 49 on I-85 (Concord Mills Blvd exit).

Welcome to the Carolinas lostphd, neoflex, mikenyc !!
Over the weekend you guys should park at the 7th Street Station parking garage walk up to Tryon St. Stand at one of the trolley stops and ride each line. It a great free way to see the city and it automatically tells you points of interest.

I hope you enjoy it here!

Yikes that drive from NY is a killer, I've done it many times but with the wife.
