Wowzers! Between our trip to Manhattan and OPENING OUR NEW LOCATION (insert crazy giddy grown ups here) at 372 Depot Street in the River Arts District of Asheville (formerly the home of The Magnetic Field theatre and restaurant), we have been very busy bees! But it is official! We’ve been working crazy hard to get […]

WHAT. A. WEEK!! To say this past week was intense might be an understatement. For starters, I LOVE New York. I was born just outside of Newark NJ so anytime I get an opportunity to head to the city I simply cannot pass it up. To be fair, I allowed myself one evening to really […]

Kickstarter take TWO! So, we have been in a huge fundraising tornado over the last couple of months! We’ve been meeting with investors and discussing new campaigns and marketing strategies.

Don’t get me wrong, we have received some pretty great press support from the AshVegas bloggers (Jason Sanford and Jennifer Saylor), The […]

Well, ladies and gentlemen the kickstarter fundraiser was a bust. {insert sad music here} For those of you that might just be hearing about Blue Kudzu we had launched a crowd funding campaign via kickstarter.com to help get our company moving. We had set up an initial goal of $25,000 and with kickstarter, they fund […]

What an AMAZING week! So, the kickstarter fundraiser has been a little lack luster though, we do seem to be gaining community buzz and press.  We were asked to speak at the breakfast meeting for the Asheville Rotary Club. Our first real presentation! We got quite a bit of really great feedback about the project […]

For those of you not IN the WNC region or familiar with exactly how Asheville rolls, the last weekend in July every year we host Bele Chere (the largest festival in the Southeast).
