“Riddle me this, Stu Helm.”
I recently got a text from a friend asking me where she might go out on a “hot date” with a guy from out of town. She gave me some parameters, and I gave her one answer. Below please find most of our text conversation. I have omitted some details to protect the innocent.
L – So – riddle me this, Stu Helm.. If you had a hot date visiting from [out of town] Fri night. Who doesn’t know Avl well. And you wanted farm to table, southern style, heavy on the Veges.. doesn’t need to be posh… Rhubarb, Sov Rem and???
SH – All souls
L – Hm… Never woulda come up with that. I fear this one is not a pizza dude but excellent option for the next one
SH – Forget about the pizza! Everything else on their menu kicks ass. I told em to get the word pizza off their sign! :) seriously though, I think it’s the most authentic farm to table in town.
L – Thank you. I have only been to all souls once – totally up for it.
SH – I had some kind of au gratin root veg thingy at All Souls recently that was to die for.
L – Yum. Ok.. Lemme see if I can work that locale into some dark romantic wandering. Thank you!
