Birmingham Restaurant Week starts today!
“What is Birmingham Restaurant Week?” you ask. Well, it’s a simple event really. Here is the gist, straight from the event’s Facebook page:
Birmingham Restaurant Week will offer incentives for Birmingham area residents to revisit their favorite restaurants and bars or to experience popular venues for the first time. From Friday, September 17th through Saturday, September 25th, restaurants and bars in the downtown, Five Points South, Southside and surrounding areas of Birmingham will offer three-course prix fixe dinner menus in addition to lunch and drink specials.
Why didn’t someone think of this before? Here’s hoping the inaugural becomes annual. I hope you saved your spending money this month! Put down your Urban Spoon App and pick a few of the participating establishments (follow the event on twitter for ideas). Eat hearty or Bon Appetit, whichever is more appropriate for your choice.
BRW is supporting another great and fun addition to the Magic City – Railroad Park! This place has grand potential. I plan to visit soon and tell you all about it. But, don’t wait for me. See it for yourself tomorrow on Opening Day.
