Tomato Jam Cafe, one of my favorite lunch spots, undergoes a change in management as owners Rebecca and Charlie move their family back home to California.
It's a sad, sad day for Asheville Twitter Nation (who met there frequently for chicken gyros, spoonbread and Charlie's killer cupcakes), for all their Asheville fans, and for me.
The cafe will continue under the same name with new owners Deb and Cory. Meet them and say goodbye to Rebecca, Charlie and Willow at a "Passing-of-the-Spatula" pot luck get-together in the Tomato Jam parking lot Saturday night at 6:30.
The goodbye party even has its own Eventbrite site where you can register your covered dish!
