Cocktails at the Curate by Stu Helm


BOOKED! Chef Joe and I are super excited to have Chef Katie Button of Cúrate and The Nightbell booked for our next episode of AVL Food Fans, which will be recorded and streamed live next Tuesday, January 12th, at 8pm.

We will also be joined by one of my favorite people in Asheville, Anita Elliott, who is  an assistant manager and events co-ordinator at Nightbell, formerly of Curate, who kicks serious ass at doing her job, and is — in my opinion — one of the many reasons that Curate and Nightbell have been so successful! These two women are tops in my book, and I’m really looking forward to having them on!

Joe and I will also be joined by Lucy from the Asheville Independent Restaurant Association, who will be helping us deliver the Food News, and for our final topic, Joe and I will be discussing restaurant “Ambiance.” Art, music, lighting, decor, seating, and aroma will also be discussed. We will both be betching about having to hear “Hotel California” and the like for 1-billionth time. My motto: No A-Sides!

You can go to now to listen to past episodes, and to tune-in live on next Tuesday, and every other Tuesday at 8pm!
