Geraldine's Bakery is Back!
Check out the latest #digAVL Video 

A series on how local businesses are adjusting to the COVID-19 crisis

A little bit of New York in North Carolina... rugelach, muffins, NY cheesecake, breakfast sammies, birthday cakes and more. We are SO glad that Baker Fred is back at it and Geraldine's doors are officially OPEN again! (Asheville has missed you!)
While we've all had to adjust to the "new normal" (whatever that is), our local business owners and managers each have their own story to tell about how they've been affected and what they are doing during these unprecedented times. Dig Local is proud to partner with our friend, Ann Smith, at Leap Frog Tours to interview some of the folks who make Asheville, Asheville.
New Brew Benefits YMI

On Tap Now:

Black is Beautiful Imperial Stout

In benefit of Asheville's YMI Cultural Center, Wicked Weed Brewing has released the "Black is Beautiful" beer and has committed to donating 100% of the proceeds from the 15 bbl brew to the mission and programming at the YMI Cultural Center.  

“We are grateful to Wicked Weed for their support and are thrilled to see a Black-led beer initiative in Asheville. As the world comes to grips with the social justice and restorative equity work that has yet to be done in our society, businesses with influence have a lot of power in driving the conversation. By making such a large donation and sharing their platform with us, Wicked Weed has made it clear where they stand and we hope it inspires other businesses to follow suit.” says Dewana Little, Executive Director of the YMI.

Five Songs Added Just in Time for the Weekend

One of the five new songs added this week is
"Hidden Cinema" by Day & Dream.

Day & Dream is an indie-rock dream pop shoegaze band hailing from Asheville, North Carolina. When longtime musicians and singer/songwriters, Peter Frizzante and Abby Amaya, met in New York City they began collaborating on a new artistic project. The two thematically link their music to relationships, aging, hope, travel, and risk-taking while showcasing admiration for reverb-soaked Britpop, 90s grunge, boy/girl harmonies, fuzzy guitars, and melodic pop structures. ” 

Listen to their song Hidden Cinema on our playlist.
