Xpress recently held its latest Best Of WNC party at Highland Brewing Co. Local business owners, artists, city leaders and readers joined us for an evening of great music, food and beer.

Below are a few highlights we managed to snap amid the celebration. All photos by Susan Hutchinson, except if otherwise noted.

Thanks to everyone for coming out! Special thanks to musicians Peggy Ratusz, Hope Griffin and DJ Lil Meow Meow; food trucks Melt Your Heart and El Kimchi; special guests Asheville FM and the WNC Nature Center; and Highland Brewing Co. for sharing its space.

We’re pretty sure that you know journalism faces big challenges these days. Advertising no longer pays the whole cost. Media outlets around the country are asking their readers to chip in. 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.
