V 101.9 radio personality Fly Ty is hosting the 7th Annual Queen City Awards Jan. 10 at Halton Theater.

Who’s making a difference on the Charlotte scene? Find out this weekend as Fly Ty hosts the Queen City Awards. Plus, don’t miss your chance to see “Families of Abraham” before the exhibit closes, and swap any unwanted gifts you received over the holidays at HoneeBee Gift’s annual gift flip. Here’s a look at what to do, where to go and who to see this week in Charlotte:

Families of Abraham 1/9

Stop by Discovery Place (301 N. Tryon St.) to see “Families of Abraham” before it closes Jan. 12. The photographic exhibition explores the commonalities between Christians, Jews and Muslims. Admission is free.

Afterwards, discuss your thoughts about the exhibit over a cocktail or two at Strike City (210 E. Trade St.) during Martini Madness. Martinis are half-priced every Thursday.

Queen City Awards 1/10

Red carpet begins at 6 p.m. Visit www.QueenCityAwards.com or call (704) 965-3434 for more information.

HoneeBee’s gift flip 1/11

Did you receive any gifts over the holiday season (or anytime last year) that don’t fit your personal taste or that you simply cannot use? Want to swap them out for something else? Here’s your chance to do so with no guilt allowed.

Sunday Brunch 1/12

What’s a Sunday in the South without a good meal? Luckily you don’t have to wait for dinner. Have brunch at BLT Steak Charlotte (110 N. College St.) and feast on country style buttermilk pancakes or the Eggs Benedict with sharp cheddar biscuits, creamy hollandaise, country ham and crisp spinach. Top it all off with a classic Mimosa or Bloody Mary. Brunch is served 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
