Asheville bachelorette party
Last weekend I went to Asheville, North Carolina for a bachelorette for my good friend, Kyle. She is marrying one of Tommy's closest friends and old roommate, Andrew, on March 28. There were seven of us girls that made the trip. All the old roommates fiances and wives made the trip. (Meghan, Caroline, and Kyle)
Pretty cool that the boys are so close and we all got to become such great friends over the years. I only met Kyle three years ago but we became fast friends. She is such a genuine and wonderful friend so it great getting to celebrate her all weekend!
We drove up Friday after work and got there around dinner time. Andrew had sent homemade lasagna with Kyle for us for dinner. It was delicious! We stayed in Friday night hanging out at the adorable house we rented. Kyle gave all of this shirt to wear with her picture on it.
We did the lingerie shower that night too. She is honeymoon ready.
Saturday morning we got up, made breakfast and headed into downtown to walk around. Asheville reminds me so much of Athens. There are tons of one-off shops, art galleries and lots of local bars/restaurants. We headed back to the house to grab a quick lunch before our driver picked us up for the day for our brewery tours.
Stop #1 was Wicked Weed Brewery
Stop #2 Highland brewing
Stop #3 Hi Wire Brewing (this was my favorite beer)
Last stop: Burial brewing (2nd favorite)
We had the best driver that day, Gary. I would definitely recommend booking a tour because no one had to drive, you get lots of information about the different breweries, and it was just pure entertainment!
We went back to the house and hung out for a few hours before getting ready for dinner.
We went to Zambra for tapas and drinks. It was fantastic! Definitely a recommendation we so appreciated. It was funny at dinner because we ran into a group of girls from my pledge class on another bachelorette party. Small world.
After dinner we popped across the street for a night cap before heading back to the house for a dance party and more girl time.
It was a wonderful weekend! I was exhausted when I got home. We will be going back to Asheville hopefully soon. Such a fun town to visit!
