Today the City of Birmingham announced that Eat in the Streets will return this weekend with three locations:

  • Downtown Birmingham
  • Pepper Place
  • The Pizitz Food Hall

The festivities will include tons of food (obviously), drinks and live entertainment. Plus, from the looks of it, some great weather too. The outdoor dining extravaganza began last year during the height of quarantine as a way to safely support local businesses (and give us the chance to take a break from being indoors), and we’re thrilled to see it return in 2021.
