The wide, leafy West Asheville avenue has long been a favored haunt for candy-seekers. The move to provide barricades is one that the neighborhood hopes will ensure safety. But it will also likely draw even more trick-or-treaters.
The Brew Pump, the new tap bar inside the CitiStop gas station at the corner of Haywood Road and Vermont Avenue, will do its part to participate. The Brew Pump is hosting a costume contest and encouraging zombie walkers left stranded by the cancellation of this year’s Asheville Zombie Walk to use the location as a meet-up spot. A group is planning to meet up between 5 and 5:30 p.m. at the Pump and head down to The Odditorium and Atlamont Brewing before turning back.
The Brew Pump will have a food truck, the Bom Bus, parked in its parking lot. I’ve heard there may also be a second foot truck parked at the end of Vermont.
