need a room to rent
Hello, Asheville people, you lucky things. My girlfriend and I want to move there in February and need roommates. I was hoping someone on here could help?

We're both twenty years old. She (Brandi) works at Lowes Foods and I (Brittany) work at Books-A-Million, and both of our jobs are dependable. We're living in Myrtle Beach right now but both of us are able to transfer really easily. We have a medium-sized dog and two cats, who are friendly and funny and housebroken. We work, read, watch movies, ride bikes, bake, wander around cities, and raid thrift stores. I also knit some. We're fairly neat and quiet, but not excessively, and we want to live with laid-back people like ourselves. We'd be happy to live with other pets. We'd prefer living with a female (or females) and people close-ish to our age, but it doesn't really matter as long as the people are great. We don't mind smokers or people who like to drink now and then, and we're 420-friendly. We don't judge anyone based on race, sexual orientation, gender identity, or anything really. We want to live in a place where we can feel like a part of the home, and with people we can talk to like friends, rather than just feeling the need to hide out in our room all the time. We can pay up to $450 total each month. We'd prefer to live in a house because of the animals, but would be willing to consider a room in an apartment.

If you have a room that's available starting in February (or if you know anyone who does), please email me at girlrage@gmail.com and let me know!

Looking for internet...
Can anyone recommend the best internet service in Asheville?

Best meaning speed, affordability, and ease of use (customer service & not dropping the connection).

I'm not interested in extra services - and that is why I am wondering if there are any other options besides ATT or Charter as I thought I remembered both of them requiring you to purchase additional services from them in order to get internet.

I hate doing my own laundry
Can someone recommend a good by-the-pound laundry service? Does such a thing even exist in Asheville? Info on prices would be nice too.

I feel bad even posting this, but I'm hoping the result will assuage my fears.

I'm sure most of you know this, but Asheville has... a reputation.

I'm not a rabid conservative, and I'm certainly not this guy. But neither am I liberal, and I get uncomfortable in circles that assume everyone in it is. Diversity-of-thought is important to me, and the thought of living within a monolithic political culture makes me uneasy. Again, please don't get me wrong; I respect  and appreciate viewpoints that are different - even way different - from mine. I just want to know I won't be accused of raping the planet because I have doubts about climate change, and that there are right-leaning folks in Asheville who aren't outright insane (like in the example linked above).

I also want to start an Asheville branch of Beer Church Nashville but it would be kinda lame if everyone mostly agrees.

I assume that like most generalizations Asheville's excessive hippiedom is greatly exaggerated. But I'd appreciate your thoughts either confirming or denying this.

Wedding venue help
Hey guys, I'm wondering if anyone can help me out. I'm looking for a wedding/party venue for about 50-75 people.

We need at least some form of shelter due to unpredictable fall weather, a barn or a banquet hall would be ideal. We're looking for somewhere in Asheville or up to 20 minutes out of town. Our only requirements are space for tables and chairs, electricity, bathroom facilities, and room to dance. We can supply our own tables/chairs, food, drink (alcohol is not a must, but BYO-okay would be good), decorations and music.

The date is September 26th, 2010, and we would need the venue for the entire day (early am till late pm), and if possible some time the day before to decorate, but that is not a must. Ideal rental price would be $300, but we can go up to $500 if needed.

Any ideas/recommendations?

Does anyone have experience working at WNCCHS?
I'll admit, I use the services of Western North Carolina Community Health Services and have always received excellent care and service there.  It also seems like a nice place to work, but every time they're hiring for the front desk, which I think I'd be qualified for, I have no luck at all.  Any suggestions?

The Ineffable Woman
 I know that some women mentioned on here before that they missed The Ineffable Woman.  Apparently it is opening back up... they have a blog at http://theineffablewoman.wordpress.com/ and if you go all the way to the bottom, it says they are opening in West Asheville.  This maybe old news, but maybe not.

Immediate Dental Help
My guy has a tooth that needs to be pulled very badly - & we're broke.

We've tried all the routes such as ABCCM & the BC Health Center, but after waiting three weeks of getting there at 4am and no luck of getting in - we're going a different route.

Is there anyone who will pull a tooth cheap?
We were referred to Affordable Dentures which only charges $60 for the pull - but they require a $70 x-ray before pulling.
Is there anyone who can do the whole bit for under $100??

Please help if you have any suggestions of businesses to call.

Moving to Asheville...

Hi everyone!

I currently live in Boulder, Colorado, but my boyfriend and I are thinking about moving to Asheville within a year or so.  We've heard great things about the place -- we're both musicians, and I'm into art and photography as well.  People tell us Asheville is a great hub for music and the arts.  We love the outdoors, too.  Any wisdom you have would be greatly appreciated -- I've never been farther east than Ohio, so it would be quite a change of pace for me!  Thanks a lot!

Looking for heavy, fun bands to open up for SHAT
Hello all,

My band is opening up for Shat at Stella Blue's on April 8th. We're looking for some other local heavy bands to play as well. We are going to be the first band because we will, undoubtedly, suck the most. :)

If anyone knows of any heavy and fun bands please email me at fmerenda@yahoo.com and we can try to set something up.

Thanks everyone!
-Frank
