^hey we bring our kids with us too...

And our kids hate us when we do.
I never said they liked it....

Haha, so true. Those days when my kid enjoyed just going anywhere are gone forever, or until she becomes an adult.. Now it has to be *her* thing for her to enjoy it.

Spaghett!

https://www.bonappetit.com/story/wet-city-brewing-spaghett

could have gone in the smakie thread...
three ingredients—Miller High Life, Aperol, and lemon juice—and had all the characteristics I was looking for without my even knowing it: light, fruity, slightly bitter, and just tart enough to lead you back for another sip.
. I just pour an ounce of Aperol and lemon juice directly into a bottle of High Life, aaaand done


I want to try it!

After nearly a year, Sapwood is finally releasing bottles to their club members... Expectations are high.

sours take at least a year to mature, so the delay isn't surprising.

Just got back from Ashville.  In the downtown area they have about 8 (or more) micro breweries within a 4 block area (Green Man, Burial, Wicked Weed to name a few).  I'm not a big beer drinker, but the breweries are a blast to visit.  Good food, beer (obviously), music and atmosphere.  If you want bigger craft breweries they have New Belgium (#4) and Sierra Nevada (#3).  On top of that its a really cool city in the mountains to visit.

All true. And locals spell it "Asheville." Like Arthur Ashe though he was from Richmond.

Enjoyed Aslin's Oh Jackie Wilson at my local watering hole over the weekend.  At 5.5% (doubledry hopped) , what's not to like?

Heading there soon!!   Any advice on some  airbnb's to stay while they are? We can't figure out whether we want to stay downtown or in a cabin in the woods?

Stay at the Grand Bohemian or the Omni. You'll be happy you took my advice.

If sold on a cabin, Marriott's Homes program has a lot of nice cabin-like properties out by Lake Lure.
