Asheville's Odditorium has a lot in common with other dive bars. It's got a pool table,
a pinball machine,
a great bar, and a stage for regional bands, karaoke, and the occasional comedy show.
But what sets it apart from other dive bars is what makes it a perfect haunt for the Strange Carolinas crew: it's also home to a wide collection of oddities, many of which are available to purchase.
In addition to Sarah Jessica Parker's autograph, you can also find a Bezoar, a 17th century hairball probably pulled from the digestive track of some animal;
dirt from the farm where serial killer Ed Gein lived;
a black-and-white photo of Roger Dion, Jr., a small boy who had a two-inch twig removed from his brain after he fell and said twig went up his nose;
porcelain conjoined twins;
a taxidermied hanging bat; a sheep brain; an octopus tentacle;
dirt from the crawlspace of serial killer John Wayne Gacy's home, the same crawlspace where most of his thirty-three victims were found;
Amy the Possum Dragon, who sadly is not for sale;
a taxidermy doll, and so much more!
