What is Bham Now?  

We are the mobile, modern guide to Birmingham.

Why the head?  modern Vulcan head

The teal bearded head represents a modern, hipster Vulcan.  It also looks like most guys we run into at the local breweries.

What is our mission? 

Our mission is to help create a better, smarter, healthier, more forward moving Birmingham.

What is our focus?  

Bham Now is focused on new business, innovation, wellness, nature and having fun in the ‘ham.  Bham Now is NOT the go-to site for crime, weather or football.  Covering UAB Blazers, however, is an exception to our rule, since it transcends football to impact the whole Birmingham community.  Go Blazers!

How do we do this?
