The Poor Dears

Cute kittens mewling for mum.

My, my, Asheville. A fortnight ago, you might recall I published two reviews on gourmet boutique doughnut shops. As I’d mentioned in the posts, these aren’t the sort of establishments that I usually f

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.

The Asheville Doughnut Experience: Hole on Haywood Road

The Hole's doughnuts in Asheville, North Carolina

I am a transplant to Asheville; yes, I own it. I love Asheville's food scene, but one thing it has never done well until now is boutique style doughnuts. Tired of the same old same old chains like Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme, I have avoided trying to get a good doughnut in Asheville for a long time. This morning I decided to give a third perspective on the two newcomers to Asheville doughnuts: Hole and Vortex Doughnuts (read my review on Vortex here). As new establishments, they both get a little wiggle room in my opinion for working new bugs out of their preparation and customer service experience.

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.
