Lauryn Higgins Goes vegan
This month was an eye opening experience. I learned firsthand how hard it was to rewind and rewire twenty-three years of eating habits.

Two weeks of being vegan and it's getting easier. Asheville has so much to offer by way of eating out and rest assured vegans have plenty of options as well.

Seven full days of being vegan. And I’ll be honest with you, it’s not been easy. The other day I tried tofu cheesecake and I had to remind myself I wasn’t eating Spongebob.

I decided two weeks ago I wanted to go vegan for one month. This was not on a whim or an impulse, but rather a very deliberate decision.

Kentucky bred band, Ancient Warefare, is making their Asheville debut this week, in promotion of their new LP. In anticipation of their show coming up on Wednesday, I was able to ask them a few questions to get to know them and their music a little better.

So here’s to all of you fearless fathers. For dedicating your lives to your children and for sacrificing your Saturday mornings. You are loved and admired more than you know and today we celebrate you.

Marion Walker is a trio of artists and musicians who come together to create a sound that is dreamy, fuzzy, a little dark and a little technicolor. They fell in love with Asheville awhile back, made friends, and return to play Tiger Mountain for June 6. And it's free.

Asheville is home to countless dedicated artists, and Christine Aiken is no exception. When she saw a void in the market for aerial arts, she jumped at the opportunity.

The class began and as I looked around I was shocked. Everyone was half dressed. Tiny shorts and even tinnier sport bras. Grown men and women with stretch marks and beer guts, completely baring their bodies with no shame. It was incredible and empowering. I was already liking this.

It's the weekend of love. Or so some say. If you've got a special someone or if you're happily single, there's lots to get into.
