How It Works

Special menus (usually 5-7 items) from participating restaurants are posted on the Asheville Small Plate Crawl website.

Crawlers browse menus and pick their favorite restaurants to visit.

Crawlers use the online printable AIRpass from the Asheville Small Plate Crawl Website to plan their path from restaurant to restaurant, purchasing plates over the three day event. An interactive map is also on the crawl website for your reference.

Price of plates range from $3 to $8.

NEW THIS YEAR – Scan QR Codes with mobile devices instead of gathering hole punches on the AIRpass! It’s fast, easy, and accurate.

If ANYONE in a group purchases a plate, EVERYONE in the group gets to scan the QR code for validation.

Servers present Crawlers with a QR code to scan for validation when paying at each restaurant. Free QR code applications are available for download. We recommend “QR Code Reader” by Scan, Inc.

Crawlers may share a phone or other mobile device. If Crawlers do not have access to a mobile device, they may ask for a “Takeaway Card” at each restaurant after a purchase. The unique code on each card may be entered later via PC for validation.

Crawlers are automatically entered into prize drawings based on the number of restaurants they visit.


  1. Bring cash. It's faster, getting you on your way more quickly.
  2. Please tip servers. They're working harder for smaller checks.
  3. If crawling in a very large group, please try not to occupy seats for a long time, especially if only one or two plates are being ordered.
  4. If there's a wait at a restaurant, crawl another nearby spot, and then go back.
