Boundary Tree bottled beer (yes, beer not wine) from Blackberry Farm in Tennessee!!!  Blackberry Farm is the most heavenly place to get away in the mountains of East Tennessee… everything they do is wonderful, so this beer has to be perfect! (you can buy this to-go at Magpie)

Duck in to Bracken Mountain Bakery (42 S Broad Street – 828.883.4034) and order one of their nothing-better-in-the-world flakey croissants…. my suggestion: ask them to heat it up for you and then slather on the butter (yep, lots of butter and it will be very messy, but nothing better with a hot coffee on the side)… ;-)

Stop by Magpie Meat & Three in the Lumberyard Arts District (170 King Street – 828.877.3773) to dig into some of the best comfort food in Brevard. For a little something different, eat outside on the patio garden and play corn hole.  Some of my favorites: deviled eggs, corn fritters. :-)

I’ve always wanted to do a European river cruise, and now I get to!  Message me for how to reserve your spot on this trip with our group… it’s $750 off right now and the cruise visits France, Germany, Netherlands & Switzerland! If you’re a foodie and love good wine and food like me… this trip is for us! :-)
