If you haven’t heard by now, Bham Now is officially 3 years old. *Cue the confetti.* 🥳 And last week, we finally celebrated with all of our favorite people at Iron City Grill. It was quite the party. Keep reading to see video + photo proof of all the fun. Plus, find out everything you need to know about event hosting at Iron City.

Happy Birthday to Us 🎂

We’ve been celebrating for a while… Last month, we wrote a story recapping the last three years, we gave away a beach trip (?!) and now we can finally say we threw a party! 

We knew we wanted an intimate space, good food, live music and definitely drinks; So, Iron City Grill was a no-brainer for our top venue choice. They hooked us up with some sweet perks including:

  • Complimentary valet from Nice Guy Valet
  • Drink specials from Cathead Vodka and Campesino Rum
  • Live music from Peyton and Tommy of the Black Jacket Symphony
  • And delicious eats like mini crab cakes, smoked salmon on cucumber and steak quesadillas—just to name a few

We invited family, friends and the people who have helped get us to where we are today. It was so much fun to mingle and see everyone enjoying the party. 

Here’s what a few Bham Nowers had to say about our celebration at Iron City Grill:

Matthew Niblett, Photographer + Videographer: “My favorite part was getting to fellowship with our team and our client family. Also, the Campesino Rum. “

Beth Cunningham, Content Producer: “I’m pretty new to the team still, so my favorite part was getting to meet so many of our awesome clients! I loved getting to put faces with names.”

Wade Cline, Business Development Manager: “Having so many of our clients and team in the same room at the same time was the best part—and those crab cakes tho.”

They do it all—lunch and dinner buffets, seated meals, hors d’oeuvres, carving boards, and action stations. Our team couldn’t stop raving about the food, and they’re all definitely still thinking about the mini crab cakes.
