I have a confession.

Throughout the summer there has been a number of Eat in the Streets events around Birmingham, including three in the Avondale Entertainment District. Unfortunately, I missed every one of them.

I am NOT going to miss the next one.

According to an Avondale Brewing Instagram post Eat in the Streets is returning to Avondale this weekend on September 11-12.

Here is the message they posted on Wednesday:

“Who’s ready for the weekend already?! US!! We’re blocking off the streets this Friday and Saturday and commencing the FUN 🎉 Friday

We’ll have @house.plant.collective with us at 5pm and @thepearlbham goes on at 8pm (click Get Tickets on our profile page)! And @avondaleburgerco will be with us all weekend long (bless them👏🏽)!!

An effort by the City of Birmingham to safely expand the dining experience for the public during COVID-19, Eat in the Streets has been a  wildly successful answer to the coronavirus pandemic.  Along with Avondale, the event has been held several times downtown on the 100 and 200 blocks of 20th Street North. 

As Always, Safety First

As usual, venues participating in this weekend’s event will place additional seating in the streets to accommodate crowds. Attendees must wear face coverings during the event except when they are eating or drinking.

The Weather

And this weekend’s weather?  From our friends at weather.com, they predict partly cloudy skies for Friday night with temps falling to a very comfortable 74 degrees in the evening.  On Saturday, there are scattered showers in the forecast. But that’s the South for you in mid-September.

Can’t wait to go this Friday and Saturday. Hope to see you there!
