ANNOUNCING: Asheville's first FREE Food Truck

We know with the rising cost of living that it's tough to make ends meet for many of our neighbors. Dig Local's co-founder, Flori Pate and her team at Food Connection have invented a solution!
Announcing: Mobile Meals! T
his new truck has onboard cold storage where they can rescue unserved prepared meals from places like UNCA and Omni Grove Park Inn and repack it into individual heat and serve meals to distribute to those who need it through a free food truck experience. No paperwork. No questions asked.ūüí•
Food Connection continues to believe that access to fresh healthy meals is a human right and that no fresh food should end up in the trash when people can enjoy it. Learn more here.

Recline & Unwind Social Spa - now open 

Wanting to practice some self-care but are too busy? You can dip into RU Social Spa in Pack Square for a 15-minute head, neck and shoulder massage AND enjoy a glass of wine. Also, this is (as far as we know) the only spa in Asheville with a Kids Care menu for children ages 5 to 11. Conveniently located in the heart of Pack Square, it's the perfect precursor to a night on the town with a buddy or spouse. Walk-ins are welcome but reservations are recommended.

Blow out the end of summer with an oyster bar- at home!

Did y'all know that Asheville's Lobster Trap offers in-home catering? Chef Mike McCarty and crew can offer shrimp and oyster catering for big events (like weddings) or even at your more intimate neighborhood backyard barbecue. If you've had Lobster Trap before you know they only serve the finest cold water oysters and the freshest coastal shrimp. Having a private oyster shucker will take your party to the next level. Leave it to the professionals and you won't have to worry about cutting off your thumb or what to do with those empty shells.
