Eco Sunday

Originally uploaded by lr4rr

It's kind of overcast today in Sunday, but if you really stare hard you can see that this is a picture of Greenlife Grocery. To us locals, it's exciting because it is the brand new Greenlife Grocery amd it is a monument to organically eco green living. Dude, this is a total shout out to Annie B Bond if I ever saw one! We spent a fabulous few hours looking, shopping and then lunching up on the upper level dining area. We dined on a rather odd mix of food that Richard, Rachel and I picked out. Red Bean Curry accompanied by jamine rice and green beans; a really fabulous pasta salad in olive oil with garlic, pitted Kalamata olives and freshly grated parmesean; and fresh (as in still warm) walnut cranberry bread and the best beer I've ever had. A really awesome amber on tap by French Broad Brewing Company, which does not come in bottle much to my dismay. After searching on the internet, this brewing company located in Ashville, apparently on produces on tap. Waaahhhh.

And if the food wasn't good enough, Greenlife provided it's own entertainment yesterday. While we were sitting up on the balcony, dining alfresco, I noticed that they've provided designated parking for those eco-saavy enough to drive low emissions vehicles. Well, no sooner than I had noticed one such parking space right in front of the store, some woman drive up in her late model Mercedes and parks - no wait abandons - her car right in that spot. Richard and I look at each other - " Mercedes has a hybrid?" HA HA HA HA HA!!!

And because it doesn't take much to entertain me, I periodically snickered about that for the rest of the day.
