Shop ’til You Drop

If you are like me and you are a tad over what I like to call “quarantine chic” (AKA sweats and PJs), let’s get shopping! Check out our Small Business Guide for over 600 local deals, curbside pickup and delivery options.

Here are 5 local shops who’ve got the goods: 

P.S. Sign up your business or non-profit organization!

Fourth Time’s the Charm 

Avondale might just be joining the ranks of Birmingham entertainment districts! We’ll find out soon enough with a public hearing scheduled next Tuesday, June 23 to further discuss. Bham is allowed up to 5 of these open container allowed districts which would make Avondale numero cuatro after Uptown, Pepper Place, and most recently Five Points South. Who do you think is next?

Windows Down, Resume Out 

Grab those resumes and get cruisin’ down to Express Employment Professionals Drive-Through Job Fair on Friday, June 12 from 10am-3pm. Today’s the day to mix, mingle, and submit some job applications all from the safety of your car. PLUS be entered for a chance to win a $50 gift card just for attending! Sounds like a win/win to me.

Remember eating out?

Annnnd just like that The Pizitz Food Hall is back in action for dine-in service⏤with some new safety precautions to boot. Of course, we’ve got to go show our support by grabbing a juicy burger, or a bowl of ramen, or maybe a delicious cocktail sometime (very) soon. Bet you didn’t know a new restaurant is on the way. Any guesses on who?

SPOTTED: Three new tenants + a new restaurant in Jefferson Corner. Say hi to Bham’s newest architecture firm, fitness studio, plant shop, and soon to be contemporary grilling restaurant named Helen. It doesn’t get much better than new additions to the Birmingham family.
