'Stalking' Jon Stewart and United World Colleges


Part One: Stalking Jon Stewart

The DNC is almost upon us and vendors are gearing up all over the region to serve the thousands of convention attendees expected to arrive. But what about small businesses that dot the areas near uptown? Many say they don’t know how to gain the attention of visitors so one business owner came up with a novel idea. Her personal mission? "To get Jon Stewart to FABO Café for a cup of coffee while he is in Charlotte filming his show during the DNC."  We’ll hear her story.
