In today’s Hot Sheet, we’ve got news of a Trevor Noah performance coming to Asheville this fall, catching up on results from Sunday’s WNC Battle of the Burger, and more. Here you go:
-Asheville police are searching for a suspect who has been charged with first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of a man on Saturday at Livingston Street Apartments, the Asheville Citizen-Times reports. The suspect, Sharod Terrell Woods, is considered armed and dangerous, according to the report. The victim of the shooting was Kelby Ismael Swinton-Moore, of Candler, the report said.
-Wicked Weed has donated $75,000 to Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity. It’s the latest in a series of donations that Wicked Weed has made to area nonprofit and community organizations.
-Comedian Trevor Noah, host of The Daily Show, is coming to #Asheville for a Sept. 23 performance. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m., with prices starting at $39.50.
-The Admiral is once again hosting one of its soul night dance parties featuring DJ Dr. Filth.
-Boris Epshteyn, a former Trump White House official, will begin appearing on Sinclair-owned television stations nine times per week, reports Politico.com. In Asheville, his “Bottom Line with Boris” segments will appear on WLOS. They will “feature a mix of his political commentary as well as ‘interviews’ with members of Congress and other people,” Politico reports. The website also notes that Epshteyn’s segments are “must runs,” so all the Sinclair stations across the country will air them along with their other “must run” segments like conservative commentary from Mark Hyman and the “Terrorism Alert Desk” segments.
-The crew at Salvage Station came out on top in Sunday’s WNC Battle of the Burger. The contest featured 15 entries, judged by a group of local food writers and burger-lovers (Stu Helm, Evan Donovan, Gordon Smith, Jonathan Ammons, Duane Fernandes). The Salvage Station burger, called Im’Peach’Ed and served with a tiny American flag, had the following ingredients: a steak burger topped with Monterrey Jack cheese, garlic aioli, bacon, fried onion ring and peach flavored barbecue pulled pork. The other winners: second place to @farmtofender food truck; third place to Kitchen 743 at @isisasheville; and people’s choice award to @themontfordpullup. Congrats all!
