The expansion of the Slow Joe's Cafe deck is almost complete. The building is entirely framed in, and it should easily make the Memorial Day opening weekend. The new seating area belongs to both Slow Joe's Cafe, NOC's daytime snack bar, and The Pourover Pub our newest evening and nightspot, offering up to 150 guests seats beside the Nantahala River. A grand opening celebration is in the works, tentatively scheduled for June 20 (giving us folks in marketing time to get the event together). There will be live music, beer tasting and giveaways, so mark your calendars now!
