We got a late start today. We didn’t make it to Grandfather Mountain and Blowing Rock as planned but there’s still more time during the week and if not, we can easily day trip it from Charlotte on another.
With a Groupon, we had dinner at the Woolworth Walk counter. I’ve mentioned this salvaged Woolworth building in posts long ago. We had sandwiches. They were OK. We then walked around downtown Asheville.
Above is the Grove Arcade. I’ve mentioned this place in posts of long ago as well. I just love the architecture and décor of this place.
Jim insisted we stop at the Chocolate Fetish and that I reward myself with some chocolates… and I did.
We went back to that dying mall again. This time to visit the Dillard’s Clearance store. It was closed the other day when we were there. Now get this… this used to be a regular Dillard’s and now it’s nothing but clearance. Racks and racks. Most of it was 70% off and another 60% off the final price. We bought 7 shirts for $50 including a Polo button down shirt. Jim was in heaven.
Later we had another Lazoom adventure. This time a city tour. Back to downtown Asheville we went.
While killing time before the tour started we stopped into the French Broad Food Co-op. It’s mostly organic foods. They had a room with bulk foods. Phenomenal.
We bought some munchies.
We stopped into a Mast General Store.
We boarded and Lazoom tour bus. We brought wine. Yes, they permit it on the bus as we found out last night!
Some photos from the experience:
We had fun but we agreed that we enjoyed the haunted comedy tour over this one.
Jim and I were quite intoxicated by the end of the tour so we walked for blocks to dinner.
Dinner. Groupon. Surprise. Scully’s. Good.
Today we received an email from our builder’s salesperson. She included 3 photos for us of the house so far:
