Itinerary

6 – 8 p.m.

Join the DTH and the MJ-school in Charlotte for a joint #DTH125 Charlotte networking event on Wednesday, July 19 — a day for students and alumni from in and around the Queen City to come together.

The reception will be held at The Charlotte Observer, NASCAR Hall of Fame Building, 550 S. Caldwell Street, Charlotte, North Carolina.

Parking

The Charlotte Observer is located in the NASCAR Tower, 550 S. Caldwell Street. To access parking under the building, you must enter at Brevard Street, where Wild Wings Cafe is located. Once you enter the lot, keep right and follow signs to the Tower, not to the Hall of Fame. You'll see elevators on the opposite of the building from where you pulled in; take those to the lobby and then walk to the opposite side of the lobby where somebody will meet you.

The lot costs $10 max. There is, however, plenty of metered parking on MLK Drive, especially around the Hampton Inn and the Metro School.
