Fast Food Valentine’s Day Meals

Admit it - Valentines Day is overrated. If you are like Barney Stinson from How I Met Your Mother, maybe you believe Valentines Day was once a long forgotten holiday called Desperation Day. Perhaps are you like some of my friends who believe that Valentines Day is essentially a corporate holiday of greed that companies like Hallmark use to boost sales during slow winter months. Whatever the reason, you are not a fan of this 'lovers holiday'. Why waste all that time planning and agonizing over the perfect gift and making reservations at a fancy restaurants that require both shirts and shoes for service?

For weeks i have been searching and trying out homemade mayo recipes.

Goodbye Biltmore Square Mall

Today marks the official close of the Biltmore Square Mall. Although this mall always seemed out of place in Asheville, it was a beautiful structure that many are sad to see go, despite the fact that the mall has been dead for quite some time. The mall, originally built in 1989 has floundered since its conception due to a number of reasons including poor planning, infrastructure, high prices, and the direct competition of The Asheville Mall only a few exits away.

SURPRISE: Asheville Mall Renovation 2014

We've written pieces before about the Asheville Mall, and despite our misgivings about shopping there during the holiday season, the CBL owned mall is a go to spot for many in the city. However, there have been many changes afoot recently. The popular European fashion store H&M was announced at the end of 2013, with plans of opening sometime in 2014. This writer recently found out that New York & Company, a popular clothing store that sits on the same wing as Old Navy and Sears, is closing at the end of January, along with the popular FYE. Dairy Queen and Subway have also recently left the food court, leaving some to wonder what on earth is happening.
