Birmingham continues to show off with it’s list of fun weekend to-dos. On the roster this weekend? Four festivals — 2 food, 1 moon, 1 Latinx. Oh, did we mention you can board a party bus and sample small plates from around metro Birmingham? Follow that up with a once-monthly bottomless brunch situation for a great time.
