Charlotte Elites Check In With The Checkers

Posted by benjamingetz

Charlotte Elites got some throwback taste of a good 90’s, Mighty Ducks-style KnucklePuck with our Charlotte Checkers. This Crown Town semi-frosty eve made for a wonderful 2012 cap with our Squad decked out in schwag, shoutouts on the jumbotron, and some killer BBQ and brewkies beforehand.

A few dozen of us gathered at one of Uptown’s que joints  -- Queen City Q for some noshables. Smoked wings, Pork sliders, House-made chips with Pimiento Cheese Dip, and goodness those Deviled Eggs! Brian F notes, "Queen City Q good food, the owners are nice people, and they have a killer beer selection." Chubby, our illustrious polar bear mascot, came and snapped a few photos with us, too. NC draught brews flowed like wine and then our crew instinctively flocked like the salmon of Capistrano to the Arena.

A sea of Elites filled section 116 as we cheered on QC’s home hockey team. A whopping Charlotte Elite Squad shoutout plastered in all sorts of red and white glory even mades it's way on to the jumbotron! You know you’ve arrived as a Yelp Elite when your crew is getting some Arena-Love.

What a night. Our Checkers came out on top with a HUGE win over the Aeros in a double-overtime shootout! Victory was oh-so sweet as we departed. Go, Checkers! Amanda F tells all -- "Our seats at the game were awesome! Unfortunately there was only 1 fight to see and it was at the other end, but we could see all the action during the shootout!"

What a way to put a cap on 2012. A fantastic year of eventful eventfuls and many a Charlotte spot enjoyed by the Charlotte Elites. Here’s to you, 2012. Now, bring on 2013!
