This is an invitation to a Waffle Brunch I help organize once a year. It’s a lot of fun – and if you don’t show up you’ll be missing out on some seriously awesome food. It’s known to local foodies as ” The Greatest Waffle Brunch In History.”
Chefs from around the world compete in Asheville, NC to decide who will be crowned “Master of the Waffle Iron And Supreme Potentate Over All Creation”.
To aid this culinary contest the community (That’s YOU) comes together to taste & vote on the waffles. Side-items such as fruit salad, bacon, and mimosas are provided by the attendees to share with one another.
This year all proceeds go to BAMFS – The Blueridge-Asheville Movement & FlowArts Society. (Look them up & “Like” them on Facebook.)
The Waffle-Off Championship is considered the most important event on Earth.
Cost: $5 per person + _ONE_ of the following items to share:
–> Real maple syrup (No HFCS please)
–> 1 gallon of organic orange juice
–> 1 bottle of Sparkling wine (aka: Champagne)
–> Bowl of fruit salad. (Doesn’t have to be organic fruit)
–> Something you want to share with the community, as long as it’s pre-cooked. (eg: Bacon, Mom’s breakfast strudel.)

Tonight with Emma Swift at the Grey Eagle:
Just cuz. Stand back.
There’s a reason for Nina Simone this morning:
Asheville artist Valeria Watson Doost explores the impact that Simone — artist, civil rights activist, and Tryon’s most famous daughter — had on her community with an installation reimagining the interior of the Tryon home where the jazz giant grew up. Watson calls the work “Reparations for Nina,” saying she wants to repay a debt she, as a female artist, owes to Simone, and hopes it will be a bridge to reconciliation after the controversies that have surrounded Simone’s life and work.
My wife attended the show’s opening last night and had dinner at Lavender. She says:
This is a gorgeous exhibit and the gallery is an inviting space. Valerie Watson is one of our most creative and beautiful friends. Tryon is not very far down the road. Go to the gallery, have dinner a few doors down at Lavender Bistro, and just people watch. For a town of its size, nothing beats Tryon for artistic character and characters .
