While visiting the Charlotte, Elaine recommends:

  • If someone were to visit my city, I would suggest breakfast at Roots Cafe, lunch at Haberdish and dinner at The Peppers. I would tell them to participate in the seasons public events like The Carolina Renaissance Festival or CLTShout. Finally, I would recommend a picnic at Freedom Park or a trail at Reedy Creek to soak in the beautiful nature of Charlotte.

Support Elaine and The Quick Space by:

  • The best form of support for us right now is getting the word out on our existence and opening people’s mind to the possibility of renting out their space, by the hour, for events. We need inventory of spaces and services so we can provide the user with the best experience on our app. So, if you know a space that would be perfect on TQS, send them our way or tell them to set up their account on the app.
