From Asheville, North Carolina, it’s This Dog’s Life. I’m Ira G. Each FRIDAY, of course, I pick a theme and present a story around that theme.
LAAFF, the Lexington Avenue Arts & Fun Fair happens but once a year, on the street behind Lark. It’s a celebration of all things Asheville, with arts and crafts, music and brews, performances and hula hooping– a place where weirdness takes center stage and you can’t walk two feet without bumping into someone in face paint or wearing a costume. It’s my kind of festival, and one of the reasons I love to call Asheville home.
