Got any more info, Ash?

Why'd they close?
Where're they going?
Who's moving in?
Why that awful yellow paint job just before closing up shop?

Uptown and I walked by it yesterday, and we assumed they were renovating. Too bad, I have many fond high school memories there.

that is just sad...

I think they had to move because they stinked up the place and town with their filthy hippie garbage. I am trying to contact the owner to finance a Starbucks at that location. It would be perfect!

Screwy Hoolie said...

Why stop at a Starbucks? You could put an Army recruiting station there. Uniformed servicepeople could pluck the disaffected from the streets of our city and train 'em to kill, Kill, KILL! Brains in their teeth! KILL! KILL! KILL!

...um...

I'll miss that place.

car said...

umm, I doubt if you could teach the filthy hippystreets or Lexington Queer Festival folks to kill anything but drugs. Starbucks is still the best choice I think, I'm looking for a return on investment.

Max and Rosies and now Beanstreets? It's been a bad month! That was the very first place o' business I entered in A'ville oh so many years ago. Damn... I so fear corporate trash downtown now.

I think it was Car's fault! He's started a revolution to revitalize downtown Asheville. Just read his blog and check what he does when he finds sewer rats on his patio. LOL

Seriously though, I'm going to miss it a lot as well. Like Jay, it was the first place I stopped at when I moved here last October. Only people in town who could give me a triple shot in my cappo. without giving me a crazed look.

I knew things were going the way of the buffalo when the coffee god from San Fran left the joint (not left a joint...left the Cafe). He's the only guy I knew who could make a "dry" Latte Macchiato the correct way (not the carmalized-diabetes-inducing-thingy served at Starbucks).

I'm gonna really miss the Al Pacino (I believe that's the triple shot Future Daddy was referring to).

Max and Rosies! Where have I been?

This hurts!

Oh no, I didn't know. What a shame - on both fronts. I love Beanstreets.
