Charlotte is a great place and there always not just great things to do, but free great things to do. Lucky for you guys, I’ve put together a quick list of just a few things to tip you right into your weekend.

  • IKEA has Teacher Appreciation Day! They are giving swag bags to the first 150 teachers. There will be other great things going on as well and it kicks off at 9:30 am
  • If you like golf like me, YES I LIKE GOLF, lol, there will be a free golf simulation going on. It’s with Swing360 at Catawba Brewing from 6p-10p.

There are quite a bit of things going on as well such as free concerts all over the city, but these are two things that I think a lot of you will enjoy.
