Rob and I headed to Asheville, North Carolina for the first time on Saturday. It was so fun to go somewhere new together--we parked the car and just explored downtown all afternoon. We visited a couple different breweries, ate some delicious food, found a cool little coffee shop, had a cocktail at a really charming 20s-inspired bar, and finally went to the Jimmy Eat World concert that had brought us there in the first place.
Parts of Asheville reminded me a lot of Roanoke, and other parts of it reminded me a lot of Minneapolis. Needless to say, we'll probably be back again soon for that very reason. I've been giving North Carolina a bit of a hard time lately, but there's a lot to get into around here.
Here's where we went:
- Lexington Avenue Brewery for drinks, brussels sprouts + pork belly, beet gnocchi with bacon + goat cheese, and truffled pommes frites.
- High Five Coffee Bar for one regular cup of coffee and one almond milk cappuccino.
- Lex 18 for a sidecar and a French 75.
- Wicked Weed Brewing for a hard cider, some beers, the charcuterie, house-made potato chips, and a burger without the bun.
