Tapped at 5pm, we feature something fun and new every Friday. Get it while it lasts; there is only a limited amount!

7:30pm-Closing Live Music: Lazybirds. Lazybirds is a classic American band with roots in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina. Formed in 1996, the quartet began by immersing into the old forgotten styles of blues, jazz, country, and ragtime that had been the soundtrack of the American underground several decades earlier. The band quickly developed a reputation in the High Country for playing music that touches people at their core in a way that hearkens back to a time when music was more closely intertwined with nature. With Mitchell Johnston on standup bass and vocals, James T. Browne on drums and vocals, Jay Brown on guitar, harmonica and vocals, and Alfred Michels on fiddle and guitar, Lazybirds have created a sound that is all their own, at once familiar and original.

Saturday April2

7:30pm-Closing Live Music: Dane Page. Dane Page has been playing music professionally for 4 years in bars/coffee shops/breweries and wherever else in the Charlotte and Boone area, but calls the Carolina Piedmont his home. He started playing guitar in 7th grade wanting to be Jimmy Page, and still does, but music has lead him to many different genres of music, and most recently, songwriting. His songwriting influences range from modern song writers (Amos Lee, Josh Ritter, Gregory Alan Isakov, Justin Townes Earle) to classic song writers (Merle Haggard, Hall & Oates, Woody Guthrie, Paul Simon)

Sunday April 3

Lost Province Sunday: Residents of “The Lost Province” (Watauga, Ashe, Avery and Alleghany) receive 10% off food with verification of residency.

Support an End to Local Poverty, “Purchase” App State Sports Teams

Circles of the High Country, a dynamic anti-poverty initiative of Hospitality House, is hosting their second annual DO-Nation Service Auction April 1st, 2016 at Appalachian Mountain Brewery & Cidery. This free event features live music by Jacob Paul Allen and auction items including massages, photo sessions, tattoos, lawn care, dance lessons, shopping sprees and birthday parties hosted by Appalachian State athletes.

The event is being hosted by Appalachian Mountain Brewery as a way to continue its dedication to philanthropy and the local community. “From the beginning of AMB we have focused on community sustainability and philanthropy.  We continue to do this today and are always looking at new ways to get involved, “states Danny Wilcox, Director of Retail operations for AMB.

Jacob Paul Allen, a Country/Americana singer-songwriter, will be preforming a free concert to keep the crowd entertained as they drink great local beer and bid on unique and fun service items in support of ending local poverty.

“We believe that in order to end poverty it takes people giving what is most valuable and sometimes most difficult, a relationship,” states Circles of the High Country program coordinator Chatty Majoni. “The auction encourages people to get to know one another, to offer their skills and talents, to shop local and to have a face to face interaction with someone in their community.”

This fundraiser not only raises necessary funding but also promotes the Circles philosophy that ‘Everyone has something to offer their community.’ One of the key aspects of Circles of the High Country is developing a sense of reciprocity. Participants try to give back to the community as the community helps them along their journey. This event will see Circle Leaders and participants offering services such as mobile auto detailing and haircuts for bid.

Circles of the High Country, a long-term self-sufficiency program based out of Hospitality House, currently conducts classes in Watauga and Avery counties in partnership with The Crossnore School, Blue Ridge Academy, Boone United Methodist Church and The Episcopal Diocese of WNC.

Foster teens and community members who have a desire to break the cycle of poverty for them and their families enroll in the Circles program and learn through education, resource building, community outreach and additional relevant programming. Most of all, the building of authentic, supportive relationships across socio-economic class barriers, is a fundamental cornerstone.

If you have a service you would like to offer for the auction or have questions email Majoni at chatty@hosphouse.org. To learn more about Circles of the High Country, visit them online at http://highcountrycircles.com/, and follow them on Facebook/HighCountryCircles.
