Well, we’ve about made it through 2016! It’s been a weird year, hasn’t it? We endured one of the most contentious presidential elections in our country’s history and we had creepy clowns emerging from the woods. To quote Bill Murray from Ghostbusters, ‘Dogs and cats living together – mass hysteria!’

So I think it’s time for all of us to blow off some steam. Fortunately, there are ways to do that right here at home and we’re happy to bring them to you in this issue entitled, Experience Cabarrus.

We’ve checked out some unique places where you are in the center of the action, like Escape Artist and Escape Scene. Clue meets virtual reality meets adrenaline rush. And go-karts aren’t just for summer anymore – and they aren’t just gas-powered – as the folks at K-1 Speed will show us. We’ll also take you inside Sam Bass’ new art gallery and discuss what plans he has for 2017. And talking about blowing off some steam. How about a tour of Southern Grace Distilleries in the old Mt. Pleasant prison? In addition, the local arts scene at Cabarrus Arts Council and Old Courthouse Theatre has lots to offer the whole family.

As if all that wasn’t enough, we’ve also got a new recipe from Chef Skyler Bailes of Union Street Bistro, as well as some helpful information about prescription benefits for Medicare patients, courtesy of our friends at Cannon Pharmacy. All this and much more await you in this issue!

One final note, as we close out our 15th year of publishing Cabarrus Magazine. First, thank you for your readership and support. Thanks to you and our loyal advertisers, our magazine is still going stronger than ever. And from our staff to all of you, we wish you a very happy holiday season and a prosperous new year!

Happy Holidays!
