Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, everyone!

Friday is usually everyone’s favorite day of the week. It’s mine, too, although it’s in a tight race with Sunday.  Duane is off on Fridays which is one of the reasons I like it so much.  On a day when when we should probably be getting a ton of house projects done, you can usually find us traipsing around the city instead.  So, in honor of Friday fun and my husband who loves taxonomy (the art of list making-don’t worry, he had to tell me what it meant, too), I’m starting a Friday Favorites series. Each Friday, I’ll post a list of my favorite things starting today.

A couple of Fridays ago we went to the Local Joint in Fairview for breakfast. So I thought I’d start out the series with some of our favorite spots in Asheville for Friday feasting.

1. Local Joint. In the little town of Fairview. Apple cinnamon pancakes. ‘Nuff said. And it’s just a really cute place, too.

2. Moes BBQ– Let the BBQ wars begin! This might possibly be the best pork bbq I’ve EVER had. And I’ve had A LOT of bbq. It’s quite possible you’ll run into me there TODAY.

3. White Duck Taco– I can’t say enough about this place. Most frequented place on the list. It’s cheap AND it’s good. My favorite taco is the Bangkok Shrimp taco.

4. Wicked Weed– Not a big surprise for anyone who lives in Asheville. Best beer in town. Try the Zealot IPA. It’s my favorite. The food is almost as good as the beer. Which means it’s outstanding.

5. OverEasy- A great little (and I mean little) breakfast place downtown. Worth the wait in line. Bring a travel mug to sip on while you wait.

For the size of Asheville, it’s got an incredible amount of really good restaurants. Enjoy your Friday and Bon Apetit!
