Now for the month of May 2019, the popular digital publication Thrillist says it’s about time to put the Magic City on people’s radar.
Published on May 3, 2019 – the Thrillist feature on Birmingham is titled:
Written by veteran travel writer Jason Horn, the story interviews and follows local foodie power couple Emily Nabors Hall and Roscoe Hall.
The duo assisted the writer on doing a “deep dive” about Birmingham – providing profiles and mentions to about 35 + different restaurants and places around town.
Here are some of our favorite quotes.
“With spots like indie-music-venue-slash-coffee-and-cocktail-bar Saturn and the newly renovated Avondale Park, with a duck pond, outdoor amphitheater and 36 acres to explore, it’s no wonder we previously dubbed Avondale the Brooklyn of Alabama.”
And our favorite excerpt:
“New Orleans, Nashville, Memphis and Atlanta might get all the tourist attention in the South, but blink and you’ll miss this buzzy little city right in the middle of all of them — it’s high time that changes.”
