How do I kill a few hours in Charlotte, NC on Sunday?

The NHL lockout has my transplanted-Canadian self experiencing some BRUTAL withdrawal, so I will be heading to Charlotte, NC on Sunday for some AHL action. Yay! Unfortunately, because of very awkward train/bus schedules, I will have several hours to kill both before (between 10am and 2:30pm) and after (between 6ish and 10:30pm) the game. I've never been to Charlotte before and don't know my way around, so things that are (relatively) in the vicinity of the arena would be great, but I'm willing to walk a ways, too (since I've got nothing but time). I've got LOADS of reading to do, but also wouldn't mind seeing "the sights" of Charlotte, so ideally I'm looking for any mix of:
- awesome cafes (wifi a bonus!)
- places to eat, preferably with vegan options
- fun shops to browse at
- anything else that's neat/fun/unique/time-killing
Recommendations? Any areas to avoid as a single woman travelling alone at night? Is the bus terminal (I'm travelling on Megabus on the way home) in a safe area, or should I find somewhere else to wait?
Sorry for the absurdly specific question, but ideas are appreciated!
