The family drove to the Queen City to enjoy some time away and visit with Erik's dad, grandmother and other relatives. Upon our arrival on Friday, we visited the the Hendrick Race Shop and the Dale Earnhardt, Inc. Race Shop. It was awesome to see where they build and work on the cars, as well as seeing Jeff Gordon's four Winston Cup Trophies and Dale's seven trophies. The Dale memorabilia was special to see.
Later that evening, we went uptown and viewed the local flavor. We finished the evening at South Park Mall - Apple Store, Crate and Barrel, Sephora, Nordstrom and many other upscale and out of our price range stores. We filled our bellies at Cheesecake Factory - salmon herb salad, pulled pork sandwich, chicken tenders, some sodas and a tasty 22 oz. Yuengling.
