Hail to the chief, y’all

So President and Mrs. Obama are having a weekend getaway at Asheville, N.C.’s Grove Park Inn. At the same time that the N.C. Chiropractic Association is meeting there. This is starting to sound like an old Jimmy Buffett song. (“I’m living in a Holiday Inn full of surgeons, I guess they meet here once a year. They exchange physician stories and get drunk on Tuborg Beer.”) I sure hope the Obamas can get some rest over the sound of all that cracking.

Asheville has moved away from its granola reputation to become a mecca for good, local food. If the Obamas do venture out, I would suggest they visit Tupelo Honey Cafe for the sweet potato pancakes at breakfast, and Early Girl Eatery for just about anything. What are your favorite spots in the Paris of the Blue Ridge?
