Toy Drive for the Animals of Brother Wolf

Almost as much a tradition as the holidays themselves, donation drives are in full swing this time of year. We love being able to give back to the community and support a variety of causes that directly impact the people of Asheville and Western North Carolina. Being the animal lovers that we are, the staff here at AshevilleBlog decided to help spread some holiday cheer and support a great local nonprofit all at the same time. Our elves have placed 7 boxes around town at local pet friendly businesses. On Christmas Eve we will collect all donations from each business, and drop the bounty off to the dogs and cats waiting for a new home at Brother Wolf Animal Rescue. This way, our furred friends can share in the holiday joy with receiving their own presents on Christmas day!

Cafe Kathmandu: Himalayan Nirvana

Cafe Kathmandu, Asheville, NC

I had the delightful occasion to dine a few weeks ago at Kathmandu, in downtown Asheville, North Carolina. I am a bit partial to exotic flavors and tastes, and adventurous. Apart from an unpleasant experience with some freshly caught undercooked grilled octopus in Cozumel, my escapades in finding new and delicious off-the-beaten path items has been quite exciting indeed.

The Asheville Doughnut Experience: Vortex Doughnuts

Vortex Doughnuts' Chalkboard Illustration

As I mentioned previously in my review of Hole, found here on AshevilleBlog.com, I am a big fan of boutique doughnut shops and grew up in an area with a wide selection of them. This has not been an area where Asheville has excelled, but a burgeoning local industry and doughnuts and a dearth of well-written reviews has prompted me to drag myself out into the frosty Halloween morning to sample the wares of two brand new establishments in Asheville.
