Alive After Five is every Thursday night at the Epicentre in downtown Charlotte. It’s the only thing I’ve heard about since being here, in regards to going out.
Going into it, all anyone told me was that it was happy hour.
It was unlike any happy hour I’ve ever been to. People go home and change after work, so most people don’t show up until about 8:30. There was a band playing at one rooftop and then a DJ, break dancers, a cirque du soleil style performer, dunk tank, sumo fights and a bar in the middle of about 10 bars/restaurants.
At 9:30 the band stopped and everyone left.
It was hilarious people watching, but I would definitely not call it happy hour.
