Mark your calendars MEOW!

Remember the dazzling and endearing two-issue blowout of the 2012 Best of WNC? Of course you do — they were unfor-cat-able!

On Saturday, Nov. 17, you’ll have the chance to experience your local favorites in 3-D! And you won’t even need glasses (unless you wear glasses, in which case, you should wear them so you can see the spectacle in sharp relief).

Please join Mountain Xpress and Grey Eagle (#2 music venue) for a celebration of all things Best of WNC! The confetti of festivities includes music, comedy, trivia, a drag show and more.

A portion of the proceeds from the evening benefit the top-three nonprofit organizations: Brother Wolf Animal Rescue, MANNA FoodBank and Asheville-Area Habitat for Humanity.

Xpress needs help, too. We hope you’ll consider signing up to be a member of Xpress. For as little as $5 a month — the cost of a craft beer or kombucha — you can help keep local journalism strong. It only takes a moment.
