I spent our first day doing laundry at a very sub-par laundromat and Bill washed Bebe, who was very, very dirty. Our first brewery stop was Ninkasi, where they host a different food truck every day - we got lucky with Wednesday night being Sammitch night - with lots of vegan choices!

Thursday, September 19th was the full moon and Batt planned a moonlit hike up Mt. Pisgah with a couple of growlers from Falling Sky Brewing. A couple of others joined us along with Ramsey (Batt's dog). Batt supplied us with colorful lighting for our short, but steep climb up to a beautiful view of the city.
Friday night we met Batt after work with a bunch of hashers at Claim 52. A great little brewery in a warehouse with the requisite corn-hole game and really good beer. One of my favorite breweries as there were so many beers I liked and I love the little hole in the wall breweries where brewing takes precedence.
I think the highlight of our visit was the Saturday Farmer's Market - wow, the most amazing vegetables I have ever seen; each stand seemed as if it was more fabulous than the one before. Everything there is locally grown and produced, from the food to the clothing and crafts. There was a children's concert of xylophones - all different keys and it was fabulous! Here is a little taste...
