Rocks Redux September 18, 2007

Posted by cbuchanan in Uncategorized.

Art on the Rocks was apparently just the beginning. Have you noticed the current flood of after-hours adults-oriented events at the city’s cultural institutions? It’s a great way to introduce people to some of Birmingham’s gems–and each other.

This Thursday, McWane Science Center unveils Science Uncorked, featuring organic beer, food, music, An Inconvenient Truth, and a nice logo. And next Thursday, the Birmingham Zoo gets in on the act with Wine Down at the Zoo, which also features drinks, food, and music–and some added attractions that will be tough to top: twilight zoo tours, animal walkabouts, and possibly carousel rides! UAB’s Alys Stephens Center also has the ASC Social Club, which is throwing a pre-party before the Cuban band Tiempo Libre kicks off the new season of performances this Friday. And a week from Sunday, Vulcan Park launches its Vulcan AfterTunes series of fall concerts.

And don’t forget about Sixteenth and Sixth at the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute and Cocktails in the Gardens at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. I love it. There’s officially too much to do in this town.

Check out all the links for details for each event, including hours, costs, and how to buy tickets.
