Asheville Weekend Fling Things: July 18-20

Two items to mention today, and maybe conveniently morphing into three or more, not a bad deal for a weekend in Asheville.

Laugh It Up
First up is The Second Annual Laugh Your Asheville Off being held at The Diana Wortham Theater, in the heart of downtown. Being such a hugely walkable city, this event lends itself well to an extended outing, browsing galleries or eateries along the way. Use either link for tickets and directions.

Several national comedians will grace the city for this event, which actually kicked off last night. Apologies on that.

Alonzo Bodden will be doing two shows on Friday evening. Saturday will feature an 11 AM show for kids, leading through the day to an 8 PM finale. Mountain Express offers background and resumes on some of the featured performers.

Bikes and The Arts
Another multi day event, which begins today, is the Liberty Bicycles French Broad Cycling Classic. The Asheville Citizen Times has called this a Mini Tour de France offering:
... all the close-up, speedy excitement of the mega Tour in a scaled-down format Friday, Saturday and Sunday
Around 400 participants on each day will acquire points for a cash purse. Races include a time trial, a long distance event, and a criterium. that is to say, a closed circuit course.

The last of these is said to be best for spectators, and is conveniently taking place in what is locally called The River Arts District, on Haywood Road. A handy map and directions can be found here. The event is free, and by all means, take the chance to see the rest of the district, and support the arts as well.
