“I’m always amazed by the advances in dining technology and when I heard they have crawling plates now, I knew I had to attend the Asheville Small Plate Crawl,” said Sanders.

“Not one restaurant had small crawling plates. I went to several restaurants and watched the plates the whole time and the only time the plates moved was when my server served them to me and took them away. I even stared at one plate for a good fifteen minutes just to see if the movement was so small that it was not visible to the human eye and nothing.”

Sanders visited Posana Café, The Blackbird, Jack of the Wood, and French Broad Chocolate Lounge last night during the Asheville Small Plate Crawl.

“Again the food was good, I just wanted to see crawling plates,” said Sanders.

“I wanted to know if the crawling plates were battery operated or some type of nanotechnology enabled organism. I think crawling plates would be so cool because I would buy them and make them crawl right into my dishwasher.  Butt if you are not going to have small crawling plates, then the organizers of the event should change the name of the event to Asheville Small Stationary Plates.”

Sanders disappointment was overshadowed by the joy that her purchases last night contributed to the Animal Compassion Network’s Dine to be Kind event.

The Asheville Small Plate Crawl continues today and will end tomorrow evening, you can find out more about the event here.

As for Sanders she is giving the crawl one more opportunity tonight.

“I thought it over and maybe the plates are just a little gun shy when it comes to crowds,” said Sanders.

“Now that the plates have had an opportunity to get use to people, I want to see if they are willing to show their true selves and crawl right across the table. If the plates don’t, not all will be lost as I will be able to enjoy a cheap delicious meal at an Asheville restaurant.”
