Lounging at the Battery Park Book Exchange and Wine Bar in Asheville

We have been to the Battery Park Book Exchange and Wine Bar in downtown Asheville several times. I have to say that every time we have been here, it was a hit. The atmosphere is wonderful, the walls and isles are lined with books and art, there was live music playing in the background while I was there, people having great conversation at the bar, delicious wine selection, yummy desserts, and so many little places and corners that you can surely find a spot to fall in love with. This is Asheville's ultimate lounge. While sitting there and enjoying the hum, I looked up and saw this Moose head above. It made me smile so I took a photo of it.

FTW Burlesque in Biltmore Village Asheville

The funky and freaky arts and entertainment scene is not something that you are going to regularly find on your tourism map. We stopped by the Toy Boat Community Art Space in Biltmore Village last night and happened into a burlesque show featuring the new troop, FTW Burlesque. Toy Boat features shows of this magnitude several times a year. They also do some amazing entertainment including juggling, hula-hooping, musical and many other types of shows and classes for the people of Asheville.
