Return To The Roof: Live @ Aloft Is Back

Seasonal Series of Rooftop Revelry Starts May 28

IMG_0274JPGThe Aloft Asheville Downtown is giving you a chance to socialize in the sunset, while helping a variety of great community organizations. The hotel is hosting four Live @ Aloft events from May through October.

Each features live music and Aloft’s WXYZ bar offering local craft brews, cocktail favorites and light snacks for purchase. The first event is Sunday, May 28 from 5 to 8 pm, Jim Arrendell and The Cheap Suits, a soul-driven dance party band featuring one of the best three-piece rhythm sections in Asheville. Admission is a suggested $5, supports Homeward Bound, which works to end homelessness by moving people into permanent housing and providing the support that they need to stay there.

Enjoy brews from Brevard, as Oskar Blues serves up favorites and seasonals at this Asheville Beer Week event.

“The vibe is fun and breezy,” explains David McCartney, Aloft’s general manager. “The Aloft Air Level is typically only open to registered guests but for these Sunday’s Live @ Aloft benefit concerts, we open it to all event attendees. The event will have an Oskar Blues flavor with several OB beers and can koozies. The Aloft staff feels very strongly about staying connected to the Asheville area by helping non-profits with our volunteer projects and our fund raising efforts. Through the series, we’re also able to come together as a community to give back.”

    Former TV weatherguy who never got it right, til the day I predicted mostly cloudy skies with a 100% chance of unemployment. I've survived stints as a morning radio host, stay-at-home dad, and lab assistant. All left me with with varying degrees of side-effects, which somehow combined to make me a good fit to be the editor/video producer of the828.com.
