There’s a new nightlife hotspot in Mecklenburg County that may surprise you: Matthews. 

What used to be a sleepy suburb is transforming itself into a destination for those looking to avoid uptown or South End. And now there are plans to turn an old warehouse in downtown Matthews into restaurants, offices and shops.

Architects in Charlotte are increasingly being asked to do something new: Design buildings with features that would look good in Instagram posts. The push seems to be coming from building owners and marketers who want the free publicity that can come with social media buzz. But the request is rubbing some architects the wrong way.

The Charlotte Curling Association started off with just 25 members in 2010. Four years later, the group has over 80 members and is getting ready to open a $1.7 million arena dedicated to curling in Charlotte.

This weekend, the group held one last tournament, or in curling lingo "bonspiel," in Indian Trail, before it moves to its new home.
