Thanks to you, our readers, who voted Ashvegas BEST BLOG, BEST WEBSITE and BEST SOCIAL MEDIA PERSONALITY (@Ashevegas) in the recent Mountain Xpress Best of WNC poll, and thanks to the generosity of the Asheville Grown Business Alliance, we’ve got a big, big surprise.

From NOW through Wednesday, November 14, ALL Ashvegas readers can receive a FREE 2012 Go Local card from Hip Replacements as a thank-you from Ashvegas and a gift from Asheville Grown.

The 2012 Go Local card is good through January 31, and allows all kinds of discounts at local businesses including select vendors of the Big Crafty (Christmas shopping!), the Fine Arts Theatre, the Magnetic Field, the Driplator, Malaprop’s, Asheville Pizza, Clingman Cafe, and pretty much a laundry list of some of Asheville’s best indie restaurants, shops and businesses. (See the complete list here.)

To pick up your own card, just visit Hip Replacements downtown at 72 N. Lexington,  and say “I’m an Ashvegas reader,” and a 2012 card is yours. If you see Kip or Franzi, please thank them for their generous support of Ashvegas and Asheville independent business.

One per reader, please.

And if you like the 2012 card, check out the newly released 2013 Go Local Card.  Over 360 businesses signed up, tripling last year’s participation! Get yours soon.

Kip Veno and Franzi Charen of Asheville Grown

Ashvegas loves Asheville, we love Asheville Grown,  we love the Go Local card, and readers, we love you too. We couldn’t do this without you.

    There’s a Go Local guide detailing all the discounts you’ll enjoy when you’re sporting a Go Local card. This guide will be in the December 12 issue of Mountain Xpress.

    Awesome for everyone! Quick reminder – you can use that Go Local card at Second Gear too! And you can also purchase one for 2013 at either location starting this week!
