    Tomorrow, we're going on a trip to visit my brother in law in his new place in Asheville, NC. We've never been before so I'm asking 2 questions
    1)What are some places we HAVE to eat?
    2)What are some good places for toys/comics and whatnot?

    If you've never been to Waffle House that's a good greasy spoon to check out. I love the pecan waffle. Another spot to check out is the Biltmore Estate You'll see that from the interstate coming into Ashville from Knoxville, TN. Have fun!

    Ebay:
    Blue moon bakery is awsome. Think that where they throw bread its cool. Earthfair down there has a wonderful burger and other foods. Its kinda healthfood store and all rolled in to one. Go to wall st if you want to see some cool shops I can't reamber but I think there a comic store or somthing like that on there. Its been a few years sense I went up there. I have family my aunt and uncle. I really want to move there.

    Biltmore is definitely a worthy visit. But I didn't see any toy-stores there.

    Actually, you might want to PM SuperQuad7 as he is in NC and I think they get together in Raleigh-Durham. I want to say they do it well in advance as it can be a long trip from what I've observed in the past. Check the conventions/get togethers thread for NC.
