On June 16, 1912, the city celebrated its first Father’s Day. Shortly thereafter, another day of observance was proposed: Mother-in-Law Day.
Local restaurants plan for Father’s Day. Also: Asheville Bee Charmer celebrates its fifth anniversary, Chris Smith leads an okra workshop and more.
Biltmore Coffee Roasters and Trout Lily Market & Deli join as one. Also: The Great American Jerk Off returns; Tod’s Tasties hosts its annual Father’s Day cookout; The Chop Shop Butchery hosts a whole hog workshop; and several local restaurants are recognized at the 39th annual Griffin Awards.
Father’s Day food events, an artisan baking workshop, a South of the Border-themed picnic buffet and an educational wine tasting are all on the menu in this week’s Small Bites.
Asheville author Ashley English practices what she preaches by hosting a community potluck to celebrate the release of the softcover version of her book, Handmade Gatherings.
