Missing Out on The Lobster Trap #digAVL Video 

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

 Chef Mike McCarty, Co-owner of The Lobster Trap, fills us in on how they've created ways to keep guests safe while enjoying the restaurant. They are also offering "Finish at Home" meals with a curbside pick up.

See the video interview here!
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 awesome folks who make Asheville, Asheville.

Father Son Picnic plays The Grey Eagle patio on Friday, August 28! A very limited number of tickets are available now, but this is a patio show you won't want to miss! Debuting at the Grey Eagle, they showcased their diverse, yet accessible catalog. This band started on a perfect 70-degree day, sitting out at New Belgium watching the Connells play. Now, just a few months later, this band has crafted a set of the greatest hits of the underground college rock scene of the late 80s/early 90s. Look for Father Son Picnic around town this summer.
