Ashvegas - what is going on around Asheville Show # 542

A boutique hotel with a twistWant to stay overnight in a former jail cell? A decaying county jail has been transformed into a boutique hotel just north of Asheville in Madison County. The Old Marshall Jail Hotel is now open for bookings. The transformation of the building is incredible, and the team behind its transformation have done more than preserve an old building - they're saving the rich community stories and history connected to the jail. It's a really cool project.The Grove Arcade is hot right nowHuli Sue's BBQ and Grill coming to the Grove Arcade, and I've just talked to the restaurant owners. They moved from Hawaii to Asheville. They've got extensive restaurant experience, and they've got an answer for the staffing crisis now affecting restaurants. I'll fill out the picture of what's ahead.Huli Sue's is just the latest addition to the Grove Arcade, which is filling up with some great new additions, including: Asheville Proper, a new steakhouse that opened last year; Summit Coffee Shop, which just opened last month; Wellbred Bakery is opening up there soon; last fall, Bebette's opened a coffee shop there as well; and Nani's Rotisserie Chicken just opened earlier this year.How about some public art updates for Asheville?More public art coming to River Arts DistrictThree new pieces of public art are planned in the River Arts District. One is considered an "iconic gateway" piece, one is a mural project and the third is described as a "playful art-themed piece" that is interactive.Meantime, a work by artist DeWayne Barton is scheduled to be installed in the River Arts District this week, along the new greenway there. The piece is made of stand-alone letters cut out of metal that will be attached to the greenway fence, and will spell out the quote: "All feet stand under the stars." The quote is from a poem by Barton.Will joins Ro today on his debut radio experience.Rowena keeps it light and fun while she shares various questions that come in from potential buyers moving to the mountains, and folks thinking of selling their home, as well as bonus podcasts on The Real Estate News Radio Show with Rowena Patton.
