Weekend In Entertainment: Eye On Tryon, Cristela Alonzo, HBCU Bands & More!

There’s a lot going on in the Queen City this weekend. There’s the Eye on Tryon at Victoria Yards in uptown, HBCU Culture Homecoming Band Showcase, and a nationally known comedian is on stage. And for food lovers, there’s the 4TH annual CLT s’MACdown competition.

On this edition of Weekend in Entertainment to talk about these events and more is Katrina Louis, managing editor of QCity Metro. 

Gwendolyn Glenn: Welcome, Katrina.

Katrina Louis: Hi Gwen. 

Glenn: OK, so what is the Eye on Tryon at Victoria Yards and where will it be held?

Louis: So, the Eye on Tryon is the 80-foot Ferris wheel that is going to be on the corner of 7th Street and Tryon Street now known as Victoria Yards. 

Glenn: Oh, it’s a Ferris wheel?

Louis: Yes, it’s a Ferris wheel. It’s actually pretty popular. They have it at music festivals like Bonnaroo, which is a music festival in Tennessee. It debuted last year, so it’s returning. It’s a good family event. It’s $8 for adults, $6 for kids. And then after 8 p.m., it’s 21 and up. So it makes for a cute date night.

Glenn: Will there be entertainment or other things?

Louis: They’ll have vendors and they have a music lineup this week and next week. So it starts Nov. 6 through the 16th.

Glenn: Have you ever attended?

Louis: I actually went last year for my birthday. I’m looking forward to it again.

Glenn: So moving on to a bit of food … CLT s’MACdown and cheese competition. It’s got to be tasty and a fun event. Tell us about it.

Louis: So this is the fourth annual CLT s’MACdown. It’s the mac and cheese competition. And they’re actually also going to have some craft beer tastings to pair along with it. But you’ll have chefs competing for the title of s’MACdown Champs.
