The other night we wanted to get out for a few, and we wanted to see some football. I guess you can say that we are not sports fans, but knowing that the Carolina Panthers have come this far calls for us to celebrate right along with it. I grew up in a home where we were either rooting for the Giants or the Jets when it came to football, and the New York Yankees or Mets when it came to baseball.
We walked into Wild Wing Cafe in Downtown Asheville and got put on the waiting list. We headed to the bar area to get some food while we waited. A dude by the name of Ramin took care of us, and started the night off perfect with some local craft brews and wings. Then we got seated at a table, and the game had just begun. The Carolina Panthers were making play after play, and we were having a great time. Sam waited on our table and tended greatly to our every need, and there were many. More beer, more wings, shrimp, flatbread pizza, chicken rolls and whatever else we could find. Brooke the hostess was so awesome too. Not only did she check us in, she was extremely prompt and hospitable, even stopping by the table to draw with our daughter for a few minutes.
When the game was almost over, I looked around the room, and my daughter was the only one wearing red, which was the Cardinals colors. We laughed as it is one of her favorite hoodies, but we thought about how many other people most likely thought we were Cardinal fans. Anyway, we were in red, rooting for the Panthers, and we won! Going to Wild Wing Cafe was a win too, great spot, food, and time there. Thank you.
