    For what it's worth, downtown Asheville is lousy with brew-pubs and restaurants, quirky shops, and people-watching opportunities. Very artsy/hippie/touristy, and has been given the title of "Beer City USA" on more than one occasion. I plan to come, will stake out secret location and await instructions at the blind drop via my decoder ring.

    Sounds good to me. I'm down for whatever. I could be the DD so long as we leave by 10 so I can get in bed. Hahhahahap

    For you guys on a budget, the Downtown Inn was completely remodeled under new ownership a few years ago, and is a quite decent place to stay at a very reasonable price, with free parking and a decent continental breakfast. It is also within staggering distance of a bunch of good downtown watering holes. Jack of the Wood, one of the best,is right across the street.

    As it stands now, I will attend. I am looking forward to meeting everyone. I think there may be a few more from the Raleigh Durham area.

    Count me in! As a FNG I will be asking lots of questions! Be nice to look at some awesome blades. As a newbie my biggest thing is honing and stroping my blade, but I would like help in finding a shaving soap, so smelling and listening to people would be nice.

    I was at the Ashville, NC Razor Meet in 2009. The downtown area is really good for eating and drinking. Just ask Simon Coull, Joe Chandler, sicboater, Lynn,don, bill s, gssixgun, bill from oklahoma, oldblades, spazola etc! We stayed at the Holiday Inn if I remember correctly.

    Be sure to bring your video cameras, lot of honing will be going on and probably a lot of custom razors will be showing up!
