Jason Sandford GritVegas Memorial Day
Memorial Day weekend is chock-full of events that will help you celebrate the start of summer! From music to shopping, eating to antiquing, frisbee golf to making friends with squirrels. And, of course, floating.

Get to know local crafter Heather Mithoefer, her hand-printed, organic fabrics company, Patch Design Studio, and her favorite things about Asheville.

Basically, say what you will, Mallmann is a bad-ass. Not because he can cook, lots of people can claim that title, but because he took his stuffy French training and tossed it in the fires he now cooks with. Who doesn't love a non-conformist?

Ben Wiggins has a cool idea. Let’s all dress up like zombies, float down the French Broad River, a waterway that needs our love and attention, and set a world record while doing it.

This weekend is the River Arts District Studio Stroll in West Asheville, where over 170 artists open up their studios to the masses for two days of not only the perfect opportunities to support and buy local art, but also experience creative processes first hand.
