Yes, I am definitely doing a few of those. But I'm also going to a party of local entertainment, beer, and food. It's LOCAL! But if you're within 50 miles of it, you should come! That's my circumference of local these days.
Exactly two weeks from today, a great party with live entertainment, selections of local beers, and chef-prepared foods that are grown locally...called the Plates and Pints.
If you live anywhere nearby, look up the directions to Pisgah Brewing Co, and drop by. It's a fund raiser for the Black Mountain Tailgate Market...so $20 a ticket. But you'd spend that easily for beer and dinner with entertainment anywhere.
And did I mention the silent auction? Us Mudbuddy potters are contributing something that will also support the market. I'll give you a hint soon!
The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.
Robert Louis Stevenson
