Petra's, a bar in Plaza-Midwood, played host to Charlotte's anti-amendment results party. The mood was festive the whole evening. It was even positive because the vote was not more one-sided.
But patrons like Michael Blizzard were still disappointed. "I'm disappointed for everyone. Because, come tomorrow, I still won't be able to marry my boyfriend regardless. All this is going to hurt are people that it wasn't intended for," said Blizzard.
