You can drop in at any time between 4 pm and 9 pm and have dinner and a drink. You can meet the North Carolina staff of Friends of the Smokies (FOTS), find out about our Classic Hikes series and just socialize. A percentage of the restaurants proceeds will go to fund FOTS projects.
Friends of the Smokies exists for one reason-to support Great Smoky Mountains National Park. So the restaurant donation will go to the many projects in the park.
For example, the park project that’s near and dear to my heart is Trails Forever program. FOTS created an endowment that will fund major trail construction. Right now, trail crews are working on Chimney Tops.
So come out on Monday evening at The Local Taco at 68 N. Lexington Avenue in Asheville ((828) 575-9667), order something and talk about your experiences in the park.
This will be my first experience at The Local Taco and I always like to try new restaurants. But it’s not really about the tacos.
