(5) Pasta and Provisions/Providence Road Sundries


(6) Panera/Manor Theatre

(8) The Arboretum  I have to say Arboretum. The flow of traffic meanders and doesn’t provide clear driving or parking lanes. Structurally, the worst. – Bruce  The Arboretum was designed by someone who was drunk. – John  

(9) Asian Corner Mall 

(10) Whiskey Warehouse/Commonwealth 


(11) Carolina Place Mall

Nope, I would rather negotiate Whiskey Warehouse parking lot full of land mines than Carolina Pl Mall at xmas – @slamoy2

(12) Bad Daddy’s

(13) Thai Taste
(14) Independence Center (15) 121 West Trade

(16) Blakeney Leave uptown, and you’d have to include BLAKENEY. Just the entire place. It’s horrible this time of year. – @NightOwl_RN Yes, all of blakeney/stonecrest/ballantyne. You can’t go 5 ft w/o hearing someone blowing their horn in anger – @Cheekysqwrl
