On Saturday, McBride was hanging out downtown and ended up on the South Slope. I heard that he hit Buxton Hall Barbecue and Burial Beer Co. (That’s him at Burial with new Asheville Brewers Alliance executive director Kendra Penland.)
McBride has also patronized Chai Pani and Mela restaurants (he must like Indian food), as well as Top of the Monk. This past weekend, Adam Charnack, co-owner of Hi-Wire Brewing, told me McBride stopped by his place and bought a bunch of beer and merch.
McBride and fellow actor Josh Brolin are in town for the making of a movie titled Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter.
