C.A.R.P. - A shout out for The Rootbar

Over at BlogAsheville, they came up with C.A.R.P. (Crappy Assets Relief Program). In doing my part as an Asheville blogger, I am going to showcase The Rootbar. It is my favorite place to go and hang out. I think that between dealing with this mess of an economy and the holiday season, everyone could use a break and listen to some good music while drinking a brew.
The Rootbar is located on Tunnel Road just off exit 55 on I-40. Most nights there is live music from our great local bands. The Rootbar serves only beer but their selection is fantastic and you can get many of our great local brews on tap. Out back are the Rootball courts. Ahh, rootball! If you have never heard of rootball, it is a game played on sand courts with a plastic disk, called the root and a plastic spikey ball. Like horseshoes, but better. The courts are always open, although this time of year it is a bit chilly out there, and you can always find someone willing to explain the rules. This place is full of friendly people. 
So if you're in the east Asheville area, bring your dog and have a brew. Terri (the owner) and Vinnie (her ubercool dog!)  will be happy to have you come and hang out.
