The Greatest New Bar in Asheville

The Greatest New Bar in Asheville

first_imgHere’s how you get to the greatest new bar in Asheville. Get on your bike and pedal out of downtown on Broadway, heading toward the river. You’re in your big gear because there’s traffic and it’s all a little bit downhill until you start climbing to Richmond Hill, a hundred acres of singletrack that looms over the French Broad. It’s tight and twisty and full of poison ivy this time of year, but two or three laps are mandatory during an in-town ride. Drop off Richmond Hill and head south along the river, stopping for a beer at New Belgium, then hit hobo singletrack that runs between the water and a steep slope of kudzu until you hit the proper greenway. Crank it in the big ring because the greatest new bar in Asheville closes at 8. It’s a 15-minute fast pedal, passing little kids on training wheels and roller skaters and college kids throwing Frisbees in the grass next to the greenway, until finally you’re there, leaning your bike against a bamboo fence post and ordering a beer at the greatest new bar in Asheville. At least, that’s how I got to the bar this week on our regular Whiskey Wednesday group ride. It’s a container bar, dominating a sandy peninsula that sticks out into the French Broad River, surrounded by slow moving water. There are paddleboards and kayaks you can rent, and cornhole and a firepit and a shady nook stacked with hammocks. The beer is cold, the location is perfect, and right now, before the tourists discover it this summer, it’s quiet. Getting home from the greatest new bar in Asheville is just as fun. Get back on your bike and pedal up Hominy Creek until you reach sandy singletrack that follows the stream through high grass before crossing pavement to find a forgotten piece of trail through even taller grass until it gets marshy. Keep pedaling. Along the way you’ll stop for a shot of whiskey. You’ll find yourself in a neighborhood just as it gets dark—climb past the pool until you’re at Upcountry, a brewery in West Asheville where a game of ping pong and a session IPA are mandatory. Pedal Haywood Road through “downtown” West Asheville (there are plenty of bars along the way if you’re thirsty), dropping back down to the river—hunched low and racing now, until you cross the river and start the climb back into downtown. Back to your starting point. There are faster ways to get to the greatest new bar in Asheville. But that’s the route I recommend.last_img read more

Thurston County Celebrates National Health Week: Disease Investigation Program

Thurston County Celebrates National Health Week: Disease Investigation Program

first_imgFacebook57Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Thurston CountyWe are celebrating National Public Health Week this week by sharing more about the work Thurston County Public Health & Social Services (PHSS) staff do as a part of local public health work. Today, we are focusing on the work of our Disease Investigation Program. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, you have probably heard about some of the work local public health employees do.The Communicable Disease team, comprised of public health nurses, epidemiologists, and support staff, at PHSS is a part of the Disease Control and Prevention Division.Photo courtesy: Thurston CountyThe Communicable Disease team:Monitors infectious diseases in the county.Investigates and follow-up reported cases of disease.Identifies other people who may have been exposed (contacts) and put prevention and intervention activities in place to limit the spread of the disease.Reports and attempts to identify the source of a disease and how many people may have been exposed to it.To do this, they interview health care providers, patients, contacts of patients, ask for lab samples, ask (or sometimes require) people stay home from work or school, and recommend medicines and vaccines.They work closely with health care providers and laboratories to confirm the diagnosis. Depending on the type of disease, they may also coordinate their efforts with other parts of our department. For example, they work with Environmental Health to investigate complaints related to food that may have caused illness. They do this work day in and day out.The Communicable Disease teams work has been very important during the COVID-19 response and they have been working very hard responding to cases for months. Public Health activated the Public Health’s Emergency Response Incident Management Team in early February. They have been working days, nights, and weekends to identify, investigate, and follow-up with cases and their contacts. Their work is now being supported by different employees and volunteers from several departments within the county, the Thurston County Medical Reserve Corps, community public health partners, and state and federal partners.One of the most crucial ways that the community can help control the spread of disease is by following the stay at home advice:Stay at home, unless you need to make an essential trip for groceries or other needed supplies.When you must go out stay at least six feet away from people.Do not hang out with people you do not live with.Stay home when you are sick.Cover your coughs and sneezes.Wash your hands.Keep your hands away from your nose, eyes and mouth.Educating yourself with reliable, accurate information is key. The PHSS webpage is one place you can find updated local information. Other places to find information include the Washington State Department of Health’s website, the Governor’s website and the CDC website.Our public health team is working hard to do their part during this difficult time to stop the spread of this virus. We appreciate the work and support of the community during this time, thank you for what you are doing, it is making a difference!last_img read more

QPR are struggling but Vargas and Fer can inspire them to beat Villa

QPR are struggling but Vargas and Fer can inspire them to beat Villa

first_imgQPR are bottom of the table and struggling – but they are favourites to win Monday’s clash with Aston Villa at Loftus Road.Rangers haven’t won in five Premier League matches and Harry Redknapp’s side remain 2/1 to finish bottom and 4/7 to be relegated.But despite the defeat, last Sunday’s showing against Liverpool was their strongest performance of the season so far and we reckon they can record just a second league success of the campaign.They are 7/5 to pick up all three points, with Villa 12/5 and the draw 11/5.Despite impressive wins against Liverpool and Stoke in the opening weeks of the season, Villa have gone off the boil and if QPR repeat the commitment they showed last time out, they will surely run out winners.Eduardo Vargas is the 5/1 favourite to open the scoring after netting twice last week and he is 7/1 to score back-to-back-braces and 9/5 to score at any time during the game.Vargas looks a big price at 14/1 to be named the man of the match, while Leroy Fer is likely to be a handful in midfield and is an attractive 8/1 with BetVictor.For all your weekend odds check out betvictor.com.Be lucky.CharlieFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
