This work week wasn’t filled with too much excitement, but last weekend we & some friends headed to Asheville. It wasn’t hard to find some favorites in that town.
1. Thirsty Monk. “Asheville’s Premier Beer Bar” with Belgians downstairs & American craft beers upstairs, with an indoor staircase connecting the two…you can’t really go wrong. We indulged in a bottle of The Bruery’s Oude Tart & an ombré red/orange ensemble for everyone!
4. Wedge. This is a great place to spend an afternoon with good beer, food trucks, plenty of outdoor seating (with movies in the summer!) & corn hole. We enjoyed it all on an unseasonably warm fall day.
5. Alpacas. We came across this guy, Jack Straw, during the River Arts District Studio Stroll. When I was little, I used to cry because my mom wouldn’t buy me a llama. Now that I’m older & much wiser, I realize that Alpacas are clearly a better choice, because LOOK AT THAT FACE.
