Wow! Last week was something.
My week started with the Metrolina Theatre Awards on Sept. 14 and ended with Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's visit on Sunday.
In between was a night of fashion and a dear friend's birthday bash on the patio at Ri-Ra.
I was so zonked that I couldn't make it to Festival in the Park.
Congrats to all of the MTA winners! Because I didn't want to leave anyone out, you'll want to visit metrolinatheatre.org for the full list.
Thursday's night of fashion began at the Dress for Success gala at the Southern Women's Show. I got to meet the gorgeous Andie McDowell. Then it was off to the Kristin Davis/Belk fashion show and the opening night of Charlotte Fashion Week. Both were at the Blake Hotel.
The coolest part: It all happened within a few miles of my home.
You might have heard that Eye is changing soon. It's true. I'll have details in the Oct. 1 issue. I think you're going to like it.
