Charlotte Street to close for hotel construction

It’s been sparse around here, lately, I know. While national media outlets have pre-packaged events like  political conventions to get them through that black hole of newsworthy activity known as August, we on the local level sometimes find ourselves with a little less material than we’d like.

One quick note while things are ramping back up:

The block of Charlotte Street between Caroline and Princess Anne streets (known to some as the former First Friday location, to others as the finish line of FARC‘s July 4 5-mile race) will close tomorrow (Wednesday) and Thursday from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. so that building materials can be delivered to the hotel construction site at Caroline and Charlotte streets.
