The second story is in their March hard copy version of the magazine. The article can be found on page 85 with the headline –  “The Birmingham Must List”

Three pages long, the list gives a shout out to 47 Birmingham area restaurants, hotels and retail establishments.

A “cheatsheet” for locals and visitors alike, it is worth buying the magazine this month just for that list.
