Laugh, Learn & Laugh Some More.

 

Our friend in Asheville thought we would enjoy the LaZoom City Comedy Tour and she was right on point.

The 90-minute open-air bus tour winds its way through charming Asheville and manages to impart quite a bit of local flavor and history between the funny, corny, and sometimes bawdy, commentary.

Tour guide Cookie flips out.

This is a great city – chock full of unique locally owned shops and restaurants (over 90%) and more craft breweries than anywhere else in the country. You can bet the breweries are mentioned during this tour, which allows consumption of wine and/or beer while on board, and includes a rest stop at the Green Man Brewery.

Two facts that made an impression:

  1. despite the ghost stories, no one died during the Civil War’s Battle of Asheville, and
  2. last month Asheville’s nationally renowned Wicked Weed Brewing company sold out to Anheuser-Busch. We hope it’s not the start of a trend.

  1. I visited a high school chum that lives in Asheville. Her favorite word is ‘poseurs’. It’s s gateway city for mountain treks, rafting, and the always stunning Biltmore Estate.
