     As fall approaches and the weather starts to cool, it won’t be long before entertaining makes its move indoors. But for one Charlotte family, they cherish the crisp autumn air and hold on to every possible last bit of being outdoors. For them, fall is all about entertaining on a manageable scale with close friends.

    “For me, spring and fall are the best times to entertain in the South,” said Robin Branstrom. “But I’m especially fond of fall entertaining because the weather is so beautiful and it is such a wonderful time to get back together with friends who you have not seen over the summer.”

    And the Branstrom’s know how to throw a party! Robin and her husband, Bill, are part owners of the fabulously successful fine dining group, Harpers Restaurant Group. This includes such dining establishments as Zink, Upstream, Harpers and Mimosa Grill.

    First, a little history about the setting for this wonderful get-together.

    The Normandy Tudor style home was originally built in 1927 and came close to being a local historical landmark. A home that old in one of Charlotte’s original neighborhoods, understandably was in need of some updating.

Art stars went Super Nova this year on South Tryon. Picasso, Klee, Miro and more are breathtaking at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art. North Carolina Dance Theatre’s McBride and Bonnefoux rule the Knight. What we called Afro-Am transformed into the gripping Gantt. Hang onto your cocktails beautiful people, Mint mania will explode this fall. While some choke on the $800 million price tag for all of that architecture and artiness, anybody who reflects on the positive push it gives our urban landscape knows that the allure and import of the First Street Cultural Campus can’t be denied. Hundreds flock to see the glimmering Firebird and the art that surrounds it every weekend. That pilgrimage is good for Uptown and all around.

Cool Facts:

It’s easy to understand the nickname Holy City from the many picturesque steeples that punctuate its distinctive skyline. The peninsula land was once called “Oyster Point” because of the mounds of opened and discarded oyster shells left there by the Kiawah Indians. Early settlers  landed on a promising location they christened Albemarle Point in April 1670. The Proprietors soon flattered their king, Charles II, by insisting the settlement be named Charles Town in his honor. With a rich 300 year history, Charleston today is America’s most beautifully preserved architectural and historical treasure. Its appeal has been described as a “living museum.”
