In business years (as opposed to dog years or lightyears) that first trip around the sun is not for the faint of heart. It takes a sharp plan of action and/or an unwavering trust that the universe and a dedicated clientele will come through. For West Asheville's The Double Crown, launching a new spot with "great vibes, great cocktails and great music" (as the venue's Facebook pages puts it) also meant overcoming some serious bad juju from its predecessor. But the good vibes prevailed, and The Double Crown is celebrating in style. Gospel and rR&B group Legendary Singings Stars, formed in the ’60s by the late Tommy Ellison, return (they played the Double Crown’s 2012 launched, and performed again at the bar in July), and there will food from Mama's Kitchen. Saturday, Dec. 21, at 10 p.m. $10. thedoublecrown.com.
