Today’s Reason To Drink

Remember when neighbors would gather to see a slide show of summer vacations? I don’t either, but my mom says it happened. Here’s a snapshot of my trip to Asheville.


Did I mention there’s more beer than water in Asheville? Here’s a before and after pic at one of our brewery stops, LAB.


The liquor laws in North Carolina are strange … so you have to become a member of a bar if you want a cocktail. I was happy to pay $1 for a fancy membership card at a speakeasy above the Thirsty Monk. And I got free turkey jerky!


Seemed like an appropriate name for a hiking trail that led to peaceful waterfalls.


Found a place that made a decent mint julep, called Tupelo Honey. The food was quite amazing.


And I found a place that lit drinks on fire!


Saw this at One World Brewing, a beer speakeasy of sorts.
