Uptown Charlotte Recon; Reason #N Why It Sucks to be a Beta Orbiter
I was in Charlotte, NC for a business trip a few weeks ago.
First night out on a Thursday; it was an 18+ night. Outside of the place was swamped with slim college ass clad in tight cocktail dresses and heels. Best talent I've seen since in months.
PM me if you want the name of this place. I heard that night was unusually good, though.
Line situation was obnoxious, but I was talking to a random dude and he invited me to walk in with him since he was getting a table. Props to that guy.
First Approach: Petite blonde (~8) on the dance floor who seemed receptive.
However, while I was chatting her up, a chubbier brunette friend of hers was dancing to the side of me and "accidentally" volleyball-spiked my drink down, drenching the blonde. The culprit scurried away wordlessly, leaving the blonde to look at me aghast, thinking it was my clumsiness that spilled the drink.
The friend could have at least entertained me with a Mutumbo finger wag after Hulk-smashing my drink. Instead of explaining the situation or confronting the brunette, I chuckled and walked away.
Second Approach: Refilled on a Vodka Soda and right away saw a slim red head (~8) texting by herself. Black dress, five inch heels.
Pretty vanilla out-of-the-box game. Nothing fancy. Approached her, bounced her back to the bar, then to the dance-floor for grinding. Then tried to venue shift her to a bar nearby, but the place was closed.
I then offered my hotel room for room service and television, and she accepted.
A proper smash and facial ensued.
I didn't end up ordering room service. The TV was on the whole time, though, so I held up that end of the bargain.
She then wanted to get her coat and purse, which was in a male friend's car, who she came with to the club.
She noticed her phone was almost out of batteries, so she borrowed mine to call her male friend to leave the club and bring her stuff to my hotel lobby...
...and he did.
Sucks to suck.
I rewarded her with an encore performance.
I then spent a good deal of the weekend with her. But I also wanted to do some reconnaissance on some other venues. I did some token approaches when the redhead wasn't with me or when she wasn't looking. But my motivation was wanting; obviously I was preoccupied.
Suite: The redhead took me there. It happened to be latino night, so an ambiguously Asian-ish guy with a tight redhead definitely turned some heads. Quality ranged from the squatty Mexicans you see in NYC, to the slimmer almost white-looking girls you see at Larcomar in Miraflores--there were scattered hotties.
Whiskey River: Apparently a quasi-famous spot. Waitresses/bartenders have smoking bodies, but not much else talent-wise. Packed, but saw maybe three 7s. Everything else was old and/or fat.
Fitzgerald's: Nearly barren Irish pub. Too big of a venue, not enough patrons.
Westin Hotel Bar: I kind of imagine hotel bars to be filled with hot cougars waiting to blow a good-looking young guy the second he steps in. Like other hotel bars I've been to, though, imagination != reality.
I also was recommended Butter and Label, but didn't make it there.
Overall: Girls are receptive to being approached. Grab and grind seems to be the main approach tactic of guys here--as I observed across venues--so if you have more in your arsenal it's like bringing Guns, Germs, and Steel to the New World. Venue selection is tricky though. It's a small city, so perhaps you have to learn where/when to pick your stops.
I am expecting to be in Charlotte more often. I will add to this thread if/when that happens.
