Friday, January 20, 2012: Gia and Steve arrived on Friday evening and we went to Tupelo Honey for dinner! It was lovely, despite the rain, to catch up and hang out. They brought us a very special growler of beer from not-Yuengling. A brewery in Greenville, SC that I don’t think I ever caught the name of. But it was a really cool growler and great beer!
Saturday, January 21, 2012: After a lazy morning of waffles and bacon for breakfast, followed by sitting around sipping coffee, we went to Black Mountain to wander around. We checked out Take a Hike Mountain Outfitters, the Common Housefly Kitchen Emporium, and Bramblewood. That evening we went to the Biltmore and indulged in the free wine tasting. It was so much fun! After we got home, we made our favorite black bean and sweet potato chili and corn bread for dinner. Then proceeded to sit around the table for a long time, talking and laughing. It was a perfect rainy Saturday with friends!
Sunday, January 22, 2012: This morning we had Very Superior Pancakes for breakfast and wandered around Asheville. Not much was open, as it’s Sunday and not much opens before noon, but it was nice just the same. We ran around to a few shops after noon, found some funky stuff, had yummy lunch at Mamacitas, and bade farewell to our friends as they hit the road home to Augusta!
It was glorious to have you here Gia and Steve! So glad you could come up to visit for the weekend! See you again soon!
