We got busted  🚌

For not keeping the secret that Birmingham’s historic Greyhound bus station is getting a glo-up. Developer Mike Mouron and Williams Blackstock Architects have a new vision for the station and it’s all about the details. Expect a mid-century spirit with a contemporary feel, but still holding true to the building’s historical elements. Don’t believe us? We have the photos to prove it. Plus, the team is also looking for the perfect tenants—they’ve got 27,000 square feet and 70 on-grade parking spots to fill.

Give it a shot 💉

And get the flu vaccine—the CDC says this year it could be more important than ever to receive it. Don’t take a shot in the dark trying to determine what’s in the serum, we’ve got a guide to that information plus which Birmingham businesses are offering incentives, like a $10 Publix gift card. Nothing takes the sting off a shot like a bottle of wine.

The plot thickens 🌿

Downtown Birmingham is growing something great thanks to Jones Valley Teach Farm (JVTF). The organization, along with local leaders like Mayor Woodfin,recently broke ground on the Center for Food Education. Located at 701 25th Street North, the site is the future home of a multi-use facility that will help carry out JVTF’s mission. 

Don’t pinch us, we’re dreaming ⭐️

After months of closed doors, Dreamer’s Supply Co. is once again welcoming patrons back into their perfectly curated shop. Doris Day approved, the team invites you to dream a little dream 🎶 with them during their reopening on November 11. Don’t sleep eight more openings in Birmingham, like the Summit’s newest plant shop.
