  • We were visiting Asheville and met some friends for some drinks. The guys had beer and the girls had cocktails. We had our kids in tow so they had sodas and hot dogs to keep them occupied. We noshed on the mac n cheese and had a nice time. Cool bar, nice people. They have outdoor seating but it was a bit hot out so we sat inside.
  • We got to watch them work on several pieces. It was memorizing! Don't suggest summer time visit, it's HOT in there with those stoves burning. Artwork is beautiful & for sale.
