Happy Monday, Asheville. Ali here. The week’s weather is looking a little dreary, but luckily there are plenty of things to distract you from that, like the kickoff of Asheville Amadeus, a festival dedicated to cat videos, and pie at plēb urban winery in celebration of Pi Day on 3.14 (get it?). And of course, St. Patrick’s Day is Sunday. That Appalachian Irish breakfast at Catawba Brewing is lookin’ pretty sweet.
