Asheville Food Fan – Best of March, 2020

I began writing this column in the weeks leading up to the City-wide closure of restaurants, and the state-wide stay-at-home order. Obviously, the food scene in Asheville, along with everywhere else in America, came to a screeching halt, and my own life changed tremendously due to the run-away Coronavirus here in the States. So, I’m just now getting around to finishing this post up now, in late May. I will indicate where Thank you for your patience.

Entering Phase Two…

Today Friday, May 22nd, North Carolina enters “Phase Two” of the scheduled “Re-opening” of the State. Phase Two will allow for limited Dine-in service at Restaurants (bars are not included, which is convoluted, since there is no definition of a “bar” in NC, beyond the antiquated “private club” rules, and many restaurants have a bar, and could seat people at the bar, yadda yadda… nothing is easy when there is literally no precedent.)

Drankin’ with Dawn FAQ

At the beginning of the state-wide Stay at Home order here in North Carolina, I began posting a series of pictures, just to amuse and entertain my friends on my personal Facebook page, called “Drankin’ with Dawn.” It was so popular with them, that I decided to share it with the general public, and have been posting them a few times a week during what has become weeks of staying home in Asheville, during the Coronavirus outbreak in America.

This Positive List Includes a Death Toll

I write and post a lot of lists for my friends on my personal Facebook page that the general public never gets to see. I write “Positive Lists,” lists of “Things to Do,” and lists of “Pets I wish I had but Never Will.” Random shit like that. Since there’s a fuck of a lot less food in my life to write about, I’ve decided to start publishing some of those lists here on my blog for everyone to see. I hope you will enjoy them.
