Stop #1: Birthday lunch at the original Tupelo Honey Cafe in downtown Asheville. It is one of my favorites, and it’s not just because I work at our sister store back home in Knoxville.
The food is amazing, the atmosphere is so relaxed, and it’s ok to be openly tattooed and work here. Love it!
I’m sipping on a St. Terese Pale Ale, an American Style Pale Ale (APA) from my favorite brewery: Highland. Everything they make is super solid and they are some wonderful people. I knew I *had* to have a Highland beer be my first beer in Asheville.
