Kat Palmiotti really, so much to do here on fall weekend, Kat. Being a coffee-holic, myself the No Filter Coffee event would be first on my list. And the last two years it has completely sold out... so I guess there are a lot of coffee-holics in the Charlotte area.

Wayne Martin good morning, Wayne... if I had time I'd get myself out to the No Filter Coffee Fest... sadly, it's too far from where I live to squeeze into my schedule. I guess there's always next year.
