Friends eat lunch @ The Flying Frog Cafe

It used to be the “New French Bar”, but now “The Flying Frog”, is one of the Downtown Asheville hot spots to have Sunday brunch, lunch or dinner any day, and a very nice place for evening cocktails and laughs with friends. Their lower level “underground” restaurant (below this main level) is a very private and great place to eat. Food… great, Service… great. It is located on the corner of Battery Park Ave and Haywood St.

Last night…..

…..I happened across a place called “Ed Boudreaux’s Bayou BBQ” that I had not once been to in the past, though luckily that streak came to an end. This place is exquisite 🙂 They had live music, an impressive bar, and a humongous flat-screen with a number of sports events going on 🙂 I had what was referred to as a “Voodoo Reuben” which, along with some of the traditional ingredients, had hickory-smoked bacon, pulled pork and a sort of tangy creole mayonnaise that tickled my tongue 🙂 I highly suggest it 🙂 As well, I had somewhat of an odd experience last night. I was walking down a very dark, dusty alley…..the kind you’re supposed to stay away from late at night, and at the same time, I had the latest “Portishead” album pumping into my ears. This is a BAD combination. PORTISHEAD is a group known for it’s creepy-sexy vibe and minimalistic approach, and one of the creepier songs in their repertoire, the chilling “threads” started banging, and as it did, I started walking faster. I was truthfully hesitant to keep walking. It scared me :/ THAT my friends, is what music should do to you 🙂 It should move you to feel a certain way, or move your body in a certain fashion. If it doesn’t, then what’s the point ? I wish I could remember where this particular alley was……
