A group of 8 family members (2 couples about 60, 2 couples about 25) will be in Asheville (actually staying in Arden) for a long weekend in October. We have reservations at Curate and The Admiral on Friday and Sunday nights. How is the south Tupelo Honey? How does the south location of 12 Bones compare to Big J's Bubba Q? We are also considering White Duck, Sunny Point, Junction, Desoto Lounge, and food trucks. Too many choices and not enough time, as usual when we travel. Biltmore Friday afternoon, watching college football games on Saturday for the guys, girls may go to River Arts District, Sunday, maybe hike, maybe Grove Park Inn. What should we not miss, both in terms of food and activities? Some are very interested in brewpubs, Wedge, Thirsty Monk, Frenchbroad Brewery. Are these the best 3 options for those who like beer? Which are best for those of us who don't?
