When the Lincolnton City Council holds its regular monthly meeting Thursday night (June 7th) at City Hall, in addition to holding a public hearing on the proposed 2018-2019 budget and likely adopting it following the hearing, the Council will have two items on their agenda that reflect the increased interest in development of the downtown Lincolnton area.

The Council will likely set a public hearing for its June 28th meeting (moved up a week because of the 4th of July holiday) on a proposed grant to John Anderson to expand his building at the corner of E. Main and North Poplar streets.

Also on the agenda is a request from Erika Thompson and other partners relative to proposed renovations of a buiding at 411-B E. Main Street (just east of the Cultural Center) for a new bar and restaurant.

Crafted, a Southern Speakeasy, is set to open in August. The new business will offer small shareable tapas plates, gourmet desserts, coffees and beer and wine as well as vintage cocktails.

Thompson says Chef Joe Byrd of Food Junkee will help to develop the menu selections which she says will incude Roaring 20s inspired eats. While it won't be a craft brewery, Crafted will offer craft beers and fine wines, select bourbons and other items you won't find at other restaurants in our area.

"Crafted," she said, "will be tucked away on the backside of the building in true speakeasy fashion." Thompson planned the theme, decor and menu which she says will be like "Gatsby meets true southern hospitality."

The venue will include a private room that can be reserved for parties, events or meetings.

With two pubs already approved for E. Water Street (one of them likely to open by July) and a craft brewery also in the works for the old factory further down that street, Lincolnton's offerings for night life appear to be increasing.

Another new downtown business that opened in late May is The Meating Place, a butcher shop that also offers excellent cheeses, limited produce, and some other items.

Not downtown, but up Generals Blvd., Homestead's is making a change. The restaurant is changing to an all you can eat buffet effective this Thursday.

According to their Facebook posts, Thursday will be international night featuring Italian and Latin foods. Friday will be Seafood night, and Saturday backyard bbq night. Their Sunday menu will offer chicken-n-dumplings. while the bar is being de-emphasized, they'll still have a full bar and all bottled beer will sell for $2 every day.

Back in 2012, the late Larry Dellinger, having spent over half a century in the newspaper business, saw that the times had changed.  People were getting their news from the internet--more and more every day.  That's when he decided to start the Lincoln Herald.  

Using the internet made for a number of advantages compared to other media.  Unlike print newspapers, on the internet, articles could be updated as new information became available.  There was no need to wait to publish news in a next day's or next week's edition.  Also, by not having the expense of newsprint (the paper on which newspapers print their news), the news could be offered FREE to readers.  Unlike most newspapers, you can read the articles the Lincoln Herald publishes FREE.  We even post links to all of them on Facebook and Twitter; and when you sign up for our FREE email service, we'll send you an email every day with links to our articles posted since the previous day's email.  That way, you won't miss the latest news, obituaries, sports and other items of interest for Lincoln, Gaston, Catawba & Cleveland counties.   

To make sure you get the latest updates, also like our Facebook page at and follow us on Twitter @LincolnHerald20.
