|Nate Allen showing off the nearly-ready Spoon on Thursday night.|
Spoon, the Upper Street expansion of the Knife and Fork empire, is quietly opening this weekend, maybe. If you are in Spruce Pine Friday or Saturday night, you might want to check and see.
The Center for Rural Health Innovation is having an event at Spoon on Wednesday, May 28. If you want to go, there's information here.
I think the official opening is Friday, May 30, but check with K and F before you leave the house.
UPDATE: I can report that Spoon did, with no fanfare, start serving drinks and food on Friday night: nice cocktails, beer, wine, high-quality bar snacks, and sandwiches. Art everywhere, and it's a mighty pleasant place.
