Grab a sweater and enjoy the crisp fall air while walking through the River Arts District in Asheville, N.C. The RAD's Fall Stroll event is Saturday, November 9 and Sunday, November 10 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Art studios throughout the area will have their doors open for you to explore and purchase local art, and there will be a free trolley, art demos and creative opportunities for all. Spanning two days, this is the largest art event of the year for the Asheville art scene. Event details can be found here

It's ALWAYS a good time to donate to Blue Ridge Public Radio, the local National Public Radio member station. Public radio is a great way to stay informed on issues that impact you on local, state, national and global levels. The goal of public radio is to provide unbiased and honest news reporting, not to make a profit on the news. This means they need as much public support as possible. You can find more information about donating at here

The Scarlet Bee on Merrimon Avenue in Asheville, N.C. is hosting a tasting experience from a variety of creative chefs at its Guest List Pop Up Brunch. The culinary guest list includes Bun Intended chefs, Chef Johnny Lee of Rakki Cafe and Executive Pastry Chef Beth Kellerhals. The collaborative menu is inspired by the chefs' travels to Thailand and Japan, with a hint of flavors from their hometowns of Los Angeles and Asheville. Brunch will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and reservations are encouraged due to limited seating. More info can be found here.

Catch the last bit of fall color from the top of Max Patch in Hot Springs, N.C. This weekend should still provide some brilliant displays of green, yellow and red leaves, with a slight orange and brown hugh, marking the final transition to winter. Max Patch is part of the famous Appalachian Trail, and it's a 4,600-square foot bald mountain with many paths to the top. During the spring, it is covered in tall grass and wildflowers (think Sound of Music), but during the fall its open pastures are the best way to see the colorful array of autumn leaves in distance. From the top, you will have 360-degree views of the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee and the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Directions to get there can be found at here.
