Asheville Humane Society Announces Adoption Challenge

5dollarfelines

September is historically the slowest month for adoptions and one of the busiest months in terms of animals in the care of Asheville Humane Society. In order to find homes for all the cats and kittens who need a second chance, Asheville Humane Society is dropping adoption fees to just $5.00 for five weeks. From September 2 - October 4, the challenge is to exceed the number of felines' lives saved over last September's adoption total of 145 feline adoptions.
The reduced adoption fee of $5.00 represents an exceptional value. All adoptions include spaying/neutering, current vaccines, medical and behavioral screening, microchipping, a free starter bag of food, one month of complimentary pet health insurance, and a free post-adoption veterinary office visit with a participating veterinarian. The reduced fee applies to cats and kittens of all ages.

Crowne Plaza Sticks Up for Employee

pros-table-crown-plaza

I'll be honest, I've never worked in the service industry waiting tables. It's a job I know I would not be good at for various reasons, and if you do have this job, I admire your self control not to dump a pitcher of water on someones head on a daily basis. I do not have that control. I have, however, worked in medical offices having people demand and yell at me, rush, talk down, push me around and complain about me. In my case, the office manager would always get on my case about how the customer is always right no matter how they treated the staff.

Comedian Stewart Huff in Asheville July 11th

Stewart-Huff

On Friday, July 11th, comedian Stewart Huff brings his brilliant comedy to Asheville’s The Millroom for one spectacular show at 8:00pm. Opening for Stewart is Sonya King from South Carolina and hosting the show is Peter Smith McDowell from Asheville.

Stewart Huff was born in Campbellsville, Kentucky and grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee. He has been performing comedy for over 15 years, beginning when he decided to drop out of college to become a writer. Currently touring theatres, comedy clubs and special events across the country, Huff reaches past the norm for his genuine — and genuinely unexpected — comedy. His knack for embracing the foibles of humanity and his refreshing originality make him as likeable as he is hilarious. A storyteller at heart, Huff continues to amaze with his clever material and personal wit.

Huff has performed in comedy clubs nationally and internationally, including the Improv in Los Angeles and New York, the Punchline in Atlanta and the Funny Bone in Omaha, as well as countless others. A finalist in the 2006 Boston Comedy Festival, Huff was also invited to perform in the HBO Las Vegas Festival, where his act can be viewed on pay-per-view. He currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia with his girlfriend. There he drops off the various items he collects while on the road, including an antique barber chair, countless vintage photographs, and an extensive collection of LP’s. She likes this.

Opening for Stewart is Sonya King. Sonya can be found sharing her deadpan style of comedy with audiences all over the country.  Her slow paced delivery mixed with a very quick wit, equals funny!  She’s been featured in Smart Magazine, performed on Good Morning America, The View, and is in a movie coming out this summer called Two Days Back.

Buying tickets in advanced is highly-recommended and can be done so by visitinghttp://www.AshevilleMillroom.com. Free parking is available across the street from The Millroom at 66 Asheland Avenue after 6pm. Food and beer will be available.
