Lake Lure Riverboat Cruise

Enjoy a beautiful scenic cruise of Lake Lure on an open air boat as the captain tells you the history of the Lake Lure area & the filming of the timeless classic, Dirty Dancing!  Lunch will be on the covered deck looking over Lake Lure at La Strada’s Italian Grille.  Tickets are $70 and include cruise ticket & lunch.

Tuesday. August 13, 2019: Asheville Trolley Tour

Hop on board one of Gray Line’s nostalgic trolleys for a fully narrated journey, highlighting the history, homes, hang-outs and hot spots of this “city of surprises!” Our trolley tour will take us through the diverse Montford historic district, the stately Grove Park district and legendary Grove Park Inn, the Art Deco-rich downtown Asheville, River Arts District, and the quaint and historic Biltmore Village! Lunch is set to precede the 90 minute scenic tour of Asheville at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store. Tickets are $60 and does not include lunch.

Tuesday, September 3, 2019: The Barn Dinner Theater

We will be attending the Barn Dinner Theater in Greensboro for the A Red Plaid Shirt play.  Two friends fill the void left by retirement in different ways; Marty wants to explore the open road on a Harley while Fred decides to pay more attention to his health, inventing many new ailments along the way. With “subtle redirection” from their wives and some creative problem solving (which may or may not include a homemade coffin) they find the right track… eventually.  Tickets are $80 and include play ticket & buffet lunch. Dress to impress as the theatre requires a minimum of business casual!
