In an attempt to reach out to a new demographic, the Asheville Tourists will be supporting a different local farm every Thirsty Thursday this season.  They have watched the success of the Downtown Market just across the street and were hoping they could draw in some organic food supporters to their next drunken event.  One longtime employee named Clem had this to say  ” tailgate markets are popping up everywhere,  hell you can’t even scratch your sack without pulling up a potato.”  Our response?  What could we say, he was right.  He then spit on our feet and slapped our bottoms as he walked into his office.

We were searching the premises to find someone that might be able to offer us a bit more information when we came upon a man unloading boxes off an old weathered pickup.  His name was Osprey, and he was in fact the first farmer they were to do business with.  He told us that he was the owner of Twirling Turkey Farms and that he was offloading his first asparagus crop of the season.  He then went on to say that The Tourist’s will be offering the Asparagus fried, free and all you can eat.  I don’t know about you but we here at Snurch think something smells funny.

So there you have it folks, the next Thirsty Thursday will feature all you can eat fried asparagus from Twirling Turkey Farms.  Let’s hope that there will be a stiff breeze and  functional plumbing.  Drink, eat and breathe through your mouth, or maybe not.
