ASHEVILLE, NC -- (Marketwired) -- 05/23/14 -- While the traditional gift for a 5-year anniversary is wood, modern etiquette dictates silverware to be the token of choice. It is not surprising, then, that the Grand Bohemian Hotel Asheville is celebrating its 5th anniversary with an array of dining-inspired Asheville hotel packages.
Throughout the entire year, the boutique hotel in Asheville, NC, part of The Kessler Collection's portfolio of artistically-inspired properties, is marking its Very Bohemian Fifth Anniversary Celebration with various packages and specials to delight the five senses.
With the Five-Year Anniversary Package for Two, guests can enjoy a luxury overnight experience with deluxe accommodations, gourmet breakfast, a five-course tasting menu at Red Stag Grill, a bottle of Kessler Collection wine, tickets to the Biltmore Estate and valet parking. Available through December 31, 2014 for $555, this Asheville hotel deal is the perfect opportunity to celebrate an anniversary of one's own, or simply spend a weekend in the peaceful Blue Ridge Mountains.
Locals and guests alike can participate in the festivities with celebrations on a smaller scale. At Red Stag Grill, a special five-course tasting menu for two, available for $155, indulges the senses with five signature dishes, a sumptuous five-layer red velvet cake and wine pairings with each course. Or, toast to the special occasion with the Five Rose Manhattan Cocktail ($12), handcrafted with Four Roses Bourbon, Carpano "Antica Formula" Sweet Vermouth, Orange Bitters and a petit rose garnish. The tasting menu and cocktail are available through June 2014 only, leaving just a short window for sampling these delectable creations.
The Red Stag Grill and Lounge are a dining destination in this historic neighborhood, pairing sultry sophistication with contemporary cuisine. At the restaurant, menu items focus on fresh, local ingredients, while the lounge offers an extensive list of wines by the glass and a lively ambience.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
