This past week in Birmingham has been a busy one. Between brand new restaurants and seeing some of our fave spots getting back into the groove of things, here are a few reopenings and new openings that you’ll want to have on your radar.
Sip, sip hooray! There’s nothing to wine about here because Birmingham is about to welcome its newest wine bar, Aviné. Let’s take a look at the anticipated addition to 2nd Avenue North and when to expect their grand opening.
Restaurants are moving more seating outside and I’m kind of getting European vibes. If you’re looking for a chic way to unwind and enjoy patio weather, grab your mask and check out these local wine bars. I even made sure that they have outdoor seating so it’s easier to social distance.
You know that tired joke that’s like, “I only drink on days that end in —y?” That’s my life now. But hey, at least I’m keeping it classy by supporting local business and checking out these virtual wine tastings around Birmingham. Don’t forget to snag a bottle curbside at the local bars and wineries.
A weekend getaway with live music and access to over 150 wines from all over the world? Well, I’m sold. Don’t miss out on this and a lot more at Crush Wine and Food Festival, happening in Huntsville Sept. 25-29. Use code “Bhamnow” at checkout for $10 off all tickets and packages!
Free craft beer and fine wine tasting festival in Birmingham? Count. Us. In.
Have you ever walked down the beverage aisle of your local grocery store and wondered just what IS a Little Sumpin Sumpin, Dale’s Pale Ale, Two Hearted Ale, Vanillaphant or Bearded Lady? Here’s a chance to indulge your curiosity and sample over 50 craft beers from around the world along with many fine wines for FREE!
The Wine that got away. Or something like that. We’ve all had an amazing glass of wine that we just couldn’t seem to find in our local Piggly Wiggly or even Publix. Don’t worry, Bham has great places to widen your search. Here are three places to start you off.
The Vintage Wine Shoppe
With a huge selection of reds and whites, this place will get you started in the right direction. The staff knows their wine without making you feel like a wine novice. They also offer frequent, FREE tastings with up to 20 wines. Be sure to look for their discounts and you won’t go wrong.
