SAFF is sooooooooooo much fun! Its always in Ashville, NC. Its such a great place to visit though. You might be able to talk the hubby into going if he knows there is lots of stuff for him as well. Not only at SAFF, but in Asheville.
Bars, Hookah bars, Cereal Bars, Music, funky shops, great eateries... entertainment and much much more.
My fav.... places in downtown Asheville

Eaties Cereal Bar... Its just to funky not to make the list
