If there’s one thing that will get me to a golf tournament, it’s the food.
What’s happening: The Presidents Cup announced several local vendors will be stationed at Quail Hollow Club this September.
Why it matters: People from all over the world are expected to attend the sporting event, where they’ll get a real taste of Charlotte.
- Flashback: The Presidents Cup was originally scheduled for fall 2021, but will now be played Sept. 19-25.
The big picture: The restaurants will be spread through the five main course areas—NoDa, South End, Champions Circle, 1st Tee and Green Mile Courtyard.
- Axios’ Symphony Webber recently learned that there will be spectator experiences designed and named after Charlotte neighborhoods.
- Viva Chicken is going to be in the Green Mile Courtyard along with Noble Smoke. El Toro Bruto and Ace No. 3 will be located in “Mini South End” behind the fourteenth hole and Cuzzo’s Cuisine and Sabor/La Caseta will be in “Mini NoDa” behind the fourth hole.
