This is nice to see.
Birmingham-based Southern Living magazine has two wonderful articles out this month profiling the Magic City. The online story is titled :
The Reinvention of Birmingham, Alabama: How Magic City Is Moving Forward
Several of our favorite stores and restuarants are featured, including:
Woodlawn Cycle Cafe
Great Bear Wax
Big Spoon Creamery
Domestique Coffee Cafe
Atomic Bar and Lounge
Highlands Bar & Grill
Automatic Seafood and Oysters
Harvest Roots Ferments
Golden Age Wine
The hard copy story
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.
