POST EVENT RELEASE: Peter Thomas, Kordell Stewart, and Carlo Wilkes open Sports ONE Charlotte


This Thursday, August 7th, the gentlemen of Sports ONE Charlotte (Peter Thomas, Kordell Stewart, and Carlo Wilkes) welcomed several hundreds of guests (and had to turn away many more) for the invite only VIP and media preview party of their new establishment.  This new venture has been welcomed and embraced by the Charlotte and surrounding areas and hopes to prove to be the new “hot spot”.  Conveniently located in uptown Charlotte, Sports ONE Charlotte is a similar, but separate entity than that of bar ONE, the upscale tapas lounge located in Atlanta, GA.  Sports ONE Charlotte, an upscale lounge featuring floor to ceiling mirrors, light wooded flooring and custom bar, private deco lounge, along with tv’s and mega-sized sports paintings (including one of partner Kordell Stewart) was completely designed by Peter Thomas, long time restaurateur and event architect.






I had the distinct pleasure of producing and managing Thursday nights star studded preview, as I have been working with these gentlemen for 2 years on this project as their Charlotte branding and marketing manager.  Guests were greeted with valet parking and ushered through the red carpet for photos and candids upon entering.  Throughout the night guests were able to sample select menu items including the ever popular salmon bites and themed cocktail named after Cynthia Bailey, Real Housewives of Atlanta cast mate, the “Cynthia Crush”.  Mid-evening the housewife herself, Cynthia Bailey “and friends” made an entrance greeted to a packed house of fans, friends, and onlookers.  Guests were both entertained and welcomed by both Peter Thomas and wife, Cynthia Bailey, with selfies and hugs, and Bailey even played guest bartender for a brief second.  It was indeed an entertaining evening full of cheer and laughter, as Peter Thomas toasted to another successful business venture and plugged others as guests were given complimentary samples of his new coffee, Peter’s Brew, and given insider info on bar ONE Charlotte which will begin construction soon.  I'll keep you updated!!!
