Mars Hill, NC To Allow Beer & Wine Sales

By way of The Asheville Citizen Times, we read that beer and wine will now be available at Mars Hill restaurants and retail locations. This comes about after many years of on and off discussion. The final vote was almost 2 to 1 in favor of the proposition.

Mars Hill is the last of the three towns in Madison County to approve such a measure. The county seat of Marshall, did so in November, 2007.

In the Town of Hot Springs, such a proposal has been in effect for a number of years. Few there would disagree that it helped enhance commerce and tourism in that resort town of 600, located some 30 miles from here.

The move brought about a previously absent "night life" to downtown, spawned at least one new restaurant, and ushered in an era of consistent live entertainment at local venues.

Hopefully downtown Mars Hill and Marshall will experience a similar kind of renaissance. They surely have the ambiance that prevails in this part of the world.
