2017 Asheville Food Truck Showdown

The 2017 Asheville Food Truck Showdown provided good entertainment and great food. 17 food trucks participated in this year's event at the WNC Agricultural Center in Fletcher, NC.

We sprung for the VIP sampling tickets so we could try out the various offerings. There were four serving stations which had a single sampling from four or five different trucks. Serving went really well and there wasn't much of a wait. Well, except to enter the facility because the food was a bit late and we were the first seating.

Outside there was a kids area with bounce houses, face painting, hula-hoops, and other activities.  Also, bands and a DJ kept the music playing throughout the event.

And of course there were the food trucks. They setup circling the event space which allowed for people to spread out a little. Prices were fair and the food was mostly delicious.

The Asheville Food Truck Showdown was once again a nice little event to help raise money for local charities and to raise awareness of the Asheville food truck scene.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
