Celebrate MLK 3-day weekend in Asheville, NC!!
Posted On Thursday, January 14, 2010
Officially, Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday is on January 15th, but we celebrate the holiday as a nation on January 18th (this coming Monday). This gives us all a three-day weekend to remember and honor this amazing person, which most of us do by thoroughly enjoying our time off. Why not take this time to visit Asheville, NC and partake in some celebratory holiday offerings?? When you stay in one of our mountain vacation cabins this weekend for three nights, enjoy a dinner at Zambra on us! Carolina Mornings gifts our patrons this weekend in celebration: a $50 gift certificate to Zambra for FREE!! And, what is a birthday celebration without ice cream? You choose when you go, and we provide the funds: a $10 gift certificate to The Hop Ice cream Parlor! What a way to celebrate the birthday of a legend: three nights in the beautiful mountain retreat of your choice; $50 FREE DINNER; and $10 in celebratory ICE CREAM!! You can't beat it (starting to sound like a perfect idea for my birthday, too:)!!
