Puckett’s Farm Equipment was once just that. A farm equipment dealer. Once Charlotte started impeding on the small community of Derita, many farmers found their livelihood and their land disappearing. As time went on, the farmers started visiting Puckett’s to share a beer and their sorrows. Eventually Ralph Puckett, the grandfather of current owner Gary Puckett, found that he was selling more beer than tractors. Thus, Puckett’s Farm Equipment the local bar was born. In the years following the family developed one of the best local bars Charlotte has ever known. Add in live music, a hometown friendly atmosphere and cheap beer and you have what Creative Loafing Charlotte readers voted as the Best Live Music Venue. Puckett’s owner Gary Puckett says, It’s what we’re about. Puckett’s began in the time when this music was born.”There was a live band last night playing some good ole country music that you won't be hearing on CMT anytime soon. They do bluegrass music every second and third Wednesday of each month which I am really looking forward to. Here is a sampling of the band from last night. I think I found a new favorite bar. Not that I've been to enough bars lately to have many options.
After we left the bar and picked up the kids (I was DD) Brad had me go through McDonalds and that infuriated me. I HATE DD drive through after 2 am. It takes too much time and the french fries were going to ruin my new car smell! We didn't get back home until 3am.
