Greetings Foodtopia fans!! Looking for something fun to do in Asheville this weekend? We’ve got you covered! Here are some things happening around town to keep your belly full and your booty shaking!
Friday is ice cream flight-night at The Hop!! Start your weekend off right with a flight of unique flavors from everyone’s favorite local creamery. This week the event (from 6-9pm) at The Creamery is HOLE – Hot Doughnuts and Fresh Coffee Ice Cream Sandwich Night!
After all that ice-cream you’re gonna wanna get moving, and Friday’s got you covered in the live music department! At 7:00 Bhramari Brew House will host The Clydes; an americana-bluegrass-old country group. After that head over to Imperial Life where you can shake your booty to DJ Gems and enjoy $6 daiquiris all night! In addition, Isis Music Hall is hosting The Revelers and Dirty Bourbon River Show at 8:30 and and One Stop Music Hall will have The Southern Belles at 10pm.
Start Saturday out right by earning all your weekend libations! Bhramari Brewhouse is hosting their monthly “Bend and Brew” from 11-12. This is an all levels yoga class and will be followed by a local beer tasting. More information about the event here. Shortly after, Studio Zahiya is hosting a “Sass Class” at 1pm taught by everyone’s favorite twerk queen Lisa Zahiya. The 2 hour workshop is a great workout where you’ll learn the basics of twerking and some fun choreo as well!
This Saturday is a big one, as it marks 2 years since Sovereign Remedies has been providing our thirsty community with deliciously crafted cocktails!! To celebrate their anniversary, Sovereign is hosting a block party from 4pm-10pm! The party will include live music, adult slushies, and a whole pig roast from Chef Steve Goff!!
